Belief is intellectual, it involves thinking, and it is a learned conditioning from the outside world. Fear arises out of beliefs. Trust is created by conscious knowing of truth from within.
Trust does not involve thinking as it only needs ones awareness. It is the innocence of a baby who trusts its mother without any doubt. Love arises out of trust.
The mind brings in doubt and when doubts arise, fear also arises as you search for a belief to hold on to. Fear is the most powerful enemy of all. Fear cripples, confuses, and makes one to die many times while alive.
The concept of fear arises only in the confused mind, a mind that knows only what it knows, a mind that does not know anything before the body came into existence, and a mind that can ride its vehicle only through the help of the physical senses.
When you put your mind into a belief, you need an organization, laws, dogmas, and commandments; it becomes a system.
Any kind of belief system is a hindrance to your spiritual growth, to your potential expansion, and to the gifts that you have brought into this Planet.
In a belief system you are never given a chance to explore your Truth. Belief is the easy and most limited way to live your life. Beliefs take you away from your truth by preventing you from exploring the unknown, from creating wonderment through your gifts, and by keeping you inside a box in which your mind believes to be safe.
Your Truth can be known only by your own individual experience. This Universe is teaming with a grand assortment of creation. As each individual is unique, your gifts can be known only by your experience and never by a belief.
Trust is not about God or faith. Trust is complete surrender to life from the place of greater Understanding. The greater understanding comes from the heart and never from the mind.
The mind is not built for trust or love. The mind is a storehouse of knowledge and experiences; hence, the mind is a grand holding place for beliefs. Emotions arise because of judgment of beliefs as being good or bad.
Trust has nothing to do with emotions. Trust is a state of being. It is a feeling of the heart; it is not an emotion. It is referred to as the “gut feeling”. The gut feeling is the truth that you are born with; it is your Divine Guidance. When the gut feeling is pleasant, you are on the right path. In contrast, if your gut feeling is not comfortable, the path you have chosen is not for you.
TRUST YOUR FEELINGS BEFORE YOU TRUST ANYONE ELSE. YOUR FEELINGS ARE YOUR DIVINE GUIDANCE.
IF ANYTHING MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD, THEN DO IT.
IF YOU DO NOT GET A GOOD FEELING, THEN IT IS NOT FOR YOU.
Gut level feelings are a perfect and clear compass within every human being. One who listens and follows his feelings will be able to effortlessly flow with the river of life.
