“Let this be my last word, that I trust in your love.” Rabindranath Tagore

 

“Trust the instinct to the end, though you can render no reason.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

“A good person should trust God, believe in Him and be sure of Him, knowing his goodness to be such that it’s impossible for God with His goodness and love to permit any suffering or sorrow to befall someone unless they are either spared some greater suffering thereby, or God wishes to give them more perfect consolation on earth, or to make something better out of the situation, whereby God’s honour will be more fully and visibly manifest” Source: Davies, Oliver (1994) Meister Eckhart: Selected Writings

 

If you really want to attain to trust, drop all your beliefs. They will not help. A believing mind is a stupid mind; a trusting mind has pure intelligence in it. A believing mind is a mediocre mind; a trusting mind becomes perfect. Trust makes perfect. – OSHO

Life is so vast and beliefs are so small; life is so infinite and beliefs are so tiny. Life never fits with any belief and if you try to force life into your beliefs you are trying to do the impossible. It has never happened; it cannot happen in the nature of things. Drop all
beliefs and start learning how to experience. – OSHO

“If your everyday practice is to open to all your emotions, to all the people you meet, to all the situations you encounter, without closing down, trusting that you can do that – then that will take you as far as you can go. And then you”ll understand all the teachings that anyone has ever taught.” Pema Chrodon

We can let our lives be directed by the same force that makes flowers grow.  {…} To trust in the force that moves the universe is faith. Faith isn’t blind it’s visionary. Faith is believing that the universe is on our side, and that the universe knows what it’s doing. Faith is a psychological awareness of an unfolding force for good, constantly at work in all dimensions. Our attempts to direct this force only interferes with it. Our willingness to relax into it allows it to work on our behalf. Marianne Williamson

“On the day we can fully trust each other, there will be peace on earth.” LRH
