If we were 100% honest with ourselves, what can we actually predict or control?
If we believe that we can control and predict a lot in our lives, then we have every reason to be nervous, anxious and fearful.
What do we have in us that we can count on to help us do that?
What gives us the ability to be aware of all the aspects of any problem and seeking solutions in such a way that only good can come of it?
In our current awareness, we do not possess the ability but we could, if we learn to trust the universe.
The universe knows everything, it knows all aspects of any problem and it knows of solutions that only good will come out of them.
If we want to gain the recognition of the right conclusions and the guarantee that it will be accomplished we have to lean how to trust the universe.
Limitations Of The Current Self
“To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don’t grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float.” – Alan Watts
The self that we are currently aware of is extremely limited in awareness and perception.
To believe that you can predict and control many things in your life is to put trust where trust in unwarranted and as a result experience fear, anxiety, misery, depression, and anger.
No one can put his faith in his weakness and feel safe.
If you want to feel strength, you have to put your trust where it is warranted, in something bigger than yourself, in the universe.
The recognition of your own frailty is a necessary step to correct your misconception.
This process is usually very painful but a necessary part to rediscovering the through about ourselves and the universe.
Trust In The Universe
“Always say “yes” to the present moment. What could be more futile, more insane, than to create inner resistance to what already is? what could be more insane than to oppose life itself, which is now and always now? Surrender to what is. Say “yes” to life — and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
To have trust in the universe is to rediscover a power that is in us but not of us. A power that keeps all things safe.
When this power has been experience if only for a second, it is impossible to trust your own petty strength again.
” Who would attempt to fly with the tiny wings of a sparrow when the mighty power of an eagle has been given him?” – ACIM
Trust in the universe is to trust that we are divine and a part of a bigger whole.
Trust in the universe is remembering who we really are and the power that we have access to.
We Are Entitled To This
“In your action, you lose sight of the vision, you lose sight of your trust in the process, and you just bang around in a sense of futility. Hold the vision and trust that the Universe will acclimate to your vision. Hold the vision and trust the process.” – Esther Hicks
We are entitled to perfect trust, but until we achieve this, we waste ourselves and our current creative powers on useless attempts to make ourselves more comfortable by trying to control the world around us.
It is ok that we have very little trust in the universe, but with a little willingness that will increase as we turn more often to guidance from the universe instead of relying on our limited scope. The results will convince us increasingly and make us more comfortable with the trust. No one who learns by example that one choice gives more peace and joy while another brings pain and chaos needs additional convincing.
the universe is perfectly trustworthy, but so are you. The universe trusts you therefore your worthiness is beyond question whether you question it or not.
Trust the universe to answer quickly, surely and with love for everyone who will be touched by any way in this situation.
Why put that responsibility on yourself?
Would you know which solution to a problem would bring only good to everyone?
Do not trust your good intentions; they are not enough. Trust your willingness to trust the universe, even if you fully don’t yet. Focus on that, and don’t be disturbed by anything else.
How To Trust The Universe?
“To trust in the force that moves the universe is faith. Faith isn’t blind, it’s visionary”. – Marianne Williamson
To trust the Universe, it means to allow things to unfold as they will.
The funny thing is, this will unfold as they will anyways but by worrying and thinking that we can control the outcomes we spend a lot of energy and efforts achieving absolutely nothing other than pain and suffering for ourselves.
Sometimes it appears that we have made a difference, but in reality we have not.
To trust the Universe you have to be willing to give up the control you think you have over your life.
That sounds very threatening to some, but it’s the ego in you that is threatened by this idea.
The real you knows this truth already.
Trusting the universe means accepting the current moment, not judging it according to what you think your preference is, but accepting it the way it is trusting that the moment is perfect as it is.
As simple as this concept is, this is very hard to put into practice.
For the most part it will take great practice and effort to achieve this change of perspective, but once achieved, the power found in this is immeasurable.
Meditation can help greatly.
Taking some time to be quiet and withdrawing from the physical world and bodily senses, will help us gain the correct perception.
“Things have a habit of working out in life the way they are supposed to, if you are able to just relax and trust in the workings of the universe.” – Jane Green
Many talk about it but not many have to courage and the willingness to truly trust the universe.
We are afraid the universe will disappoint us and we will get hurt, but the truth is the exact opposite of that.
By holding on to the control that we think we have we cause ourselves pain, anxiety and suffering.
Give it a try.
The next problem that appears in your life, treat it as a great opportunity to discover the truth,
Surrender and let universe resolve it for you.
“Peace comes from the absence of fear, from a consciousness of trust, from a deep, underlying faith in the absolute goodness and mercy, the final integrity of the universe in which we live, and of every cause to which we give our thought, our time and our attention.” – Ernest Holmes
