Part 3 Summary: “Top 4 Beliefs For a Foundation in Trust” Click here for the full article.
This post was written for those who are struggling with becoming aware of What Is. Before being able to be aware of What Is, a trust foundation, or belief system, must be in place.
This is not a think system, you don’t merely think these things in your head, you deeply believe them.
There are four elements that make up my Foundation/Belief System on Trust:
- There is a higher power who is with us at all times. We are never alone. Not in our joys, not in our sorrows. Never.
- There are no accidents. Everything happens for a reason.
- We don’t have to understand that reason. (the how or why of it)
- Not only does everything happen for a reason, but everything that happens is supposed to happen. Everything.
Being grounded with a foundation makes being aware of What Is so much easier. Without it, What Ifs tend to creep in and you know what happens next — unnecessary effort and energy are spent on fear and worry, neither of which serve you well.
Use your foundation as a concrete surface, as well as a soft place to land.
Part 4 Summary: “How To Practice Trust as You Go About Your Day” Click here for the full article.
In Part 4, we discussed Our Stuff — that’s what we practice on, Our Stuff. The stuff that life is made of: an annoying coworker, illness of a child, beginning to date again, etc. Our stuff is little, big, and everything in between, but we ALL have it. How we choose to deal with it, or practice on it, is key.
We walked through two examples, one an everyday example of sitting in traffic, the other, a brief personal example of having a child with unique medical circumstances. (See full article here.)
In order to get better at anything, we must practice. Luckily, life gives us ample opportunity to practice on our stuff.
