The Awakening Power of Trust
The foundation of reality is the inner soul.
Like a physical birth, the soul begins its life as a seed. Being a seed of the Creator, it is a seed of immortality that grows into an ever-expanding divine expression of the Creator.
Like a seed, the soul begins in a state of darkness and separation, which shapes all its perceptions and thoughts. Walled in by these mortal thoughts, it experiences sensations of inertia (“deadness”). As the soul seeks inwardly into its Source and Center it finds its Origin, the living thought (Word) of God. The soul learns its very life is the substance of the Creator’s thoughts, and then echoes the words of its Teacher, the Spirit of Truth: “I Am the substance of God.” The soul discovers its much more than it ever imagined.
In this eternal Light of Truth, the soul perceives its true nature is not separation from divine love but oneness with divine love. From this spark of eternal truth, the soul begins its struggle (birth) out of darkness and into the light. As the soul begins to grow by divine thoughts (characterized by oneness with divine love), its previous thoughts (characterized by separation from divine love) fade as the night in a dawning day.
During the stages of its awakening, the soul’s trust in divine love empowers it to break through the hardened shell of mortal thoughts. When the soul consciously trusts in divine love, a living connection is formed between the soul and its Creator. Since it is through divine love that the soul comes to know its true Creator, it is in this love that the soul trusts. Trust breaks through the walls of separation because it professes there are no walls in oneness. Through growing trust in the nature of divine love, the soul pushes through its fears, doubts, and uncertainties that spawned from the shadows of darkness and reaches into the eternal light.
As the Spirit teaches through life experiences, the soul begins to trust in the unfailing nature of divine love, until the soul is consumed in divine trust, covering even its inability to trust as it desires. Trust in divine love makes the hardened shell of the soul malleable to transformative grace, freeing the soul from its self-generated thought-forms that created the illusion of mortality and bound it to death. Through trust the soul lets go and opens up to divine potentials that enable the soul to take on immortal expressions.
Our true foundation is oneness with divine love. As our eyes open to this truth, we begin to trust in this divine love and relinquish all we once thought we were to gain our true expression of who we truly are. Trust connects us to our Father in sincerity, honor and true adoration. It unites our reality to his nature because of its substantive expression. Trust frees our soul from the bonds of striving and puts all the workmanship of our soul into our Father’s hands. It’s our liberty, freedom, rest and power because we renounce self-power so we can be receptive to his creative power working through us.
Trust in the unfailing and unconditional nature of divine love opens up our souls and lives to potentials that manifest restoration, rejuvenation, and regeneration.
