Do You Also Yearn for Trust, Belonging and Love?

Trusting in the moment brings us to new human adventures. But that requires letting go and a willingness to discover.

In my work as a Life Alignment coach and a meditation teacher I often meet three very common human yearnings—

To have trust (in oneself or others)

To feel a belonging

To be able to freely love (ourselves or others)

I love this triangle. I struggled with all three for a long while.

When I couldn’t allow others to support me as they wanted to I lacked the trust that letting go of my guards would not expose me to vulnerability, being seen to be weak, irreparable hurt, and, perhaps the worst, abandonment. Oh to finally open your precious heart to someone and be left without their presence is a risk an untrusting mind can’t take.

And when I push myself to work just a little bit more at the end of an already busy day, or squeeze some creative writing when my well is dry and empty, I lack the trust that rest will give me more than I have the courage to ask.

But trust is, after all, not something we need to find, build, gather or fortify.

Gentleness. Tenderness. Kindness. These are the soul-food a trusting mind and heart feast on. Moment by moment we let go of the effort to get somewhere, to achieve something worthy, while each soft touch revives our well of trust.
