So what will it take to “trust in the unknown”? To not just say words but be it?
This one may take some time to deeply ingrain but more conscious thought, conscientious action, a willingness to remind yourself “it’s ok, I don’t know, I trust”, to chill enough to watch life play out in front of you even while you go out about your beezness.
But you can also strengthen it by applying the same sincere approach in all words uttered. When you say you’ll do something then do it. When you express a sentiment then mean it. When you promise faithfulness and loyalty then be it. It means know and understand what you’re taking on, saying, and how that code runs through your system.
The outcome will be integration, a consistency of heart to mind (completely different to a consistency of repeated actions).
I hope this makes sense. It needs thought and reflection, which is part of practice. It reaches an inner stability when one doesn’t have to question should they do something, or when one doesn’t doubt, or get lost in worry and anxiety, because it is your inner code and personal ethic. You mean what you say and not say what sounds nice and appealing.
Without this quality years of asana and breath and Om and looking at chakras are narcissistically indulgent yet ineffective, only leading one in circles which we vainly think is progress but is really self-delusion dressed up in nice words, great statements, self-defensive expressions.
Of course it is not easy and we all trip up. But start by being aware of this and then promise to watch it in yourself. Continual awareness and reminding oneself is the path to transforming the way the mind behaves.
Look at all you think, say and do. And maybe “Trust in the Unknown” is a reality for you revealed by a complete unshakable state of being, clear, unworried, present, revealing true joy.
Over to you.
