Trust is a huge topic to unpack. In this post, I want to touch on a subtle layer that I am currently dancing with.
One of the reasons why we are incredibly disappointed when trust is broken is because we believe that trust is static.
Trust is dynamic in nature as it is part of our evolutionary growth as human beings.
It is alive and needs constant nurturing on our part.
In just the way that I do not trust myself in the water today, because I cannot swim doesn’t mean to say that I cannot trust myself in water, tomorrow.
Although this future is in an unmanifested state right now, there is a possibility that it could change.
Similarly, when we trust someone today, it is because we believe in who they are today.
Our attachment to trusting them forever is out of compassion and goodwill, but we cannot control how they choose to evolve.
Also, our expectation of how they choose to evolve is separate from how they will evolve.
When big life circumstances occur, such as a marriage, death, moving countries, etc then the energy of trust also changes.
To conclude, trust is a dance. And a painfully beautiful one at that.
The more we are willing to surrender to the unknown energy of life (God, Universe, Creator), the deeper the level of trust we can uphold for ourselves, from within.
And when it comes to placing deep trust in another?
