Trust & The Solar Plexus

 

trust

Third chakra from the bottom is our Solar Plexus. Our seat of Power & Control. And how much in power and control we feel is a measure of how much we trust. In a sense it is paradoxical relationship between the two. The more we trust, the lesser we feel the need to control and by default feel more in control. Power too is related to both control and trust. We use power tocontrol what we are unable to control. Would we need power if we had trust? Jesus, Buddha, Gandhi had (and still do) power over millions but would we call them powerful men? If we have trust the other two simply become redundant.

While looking for an appropriate pictorial quote for this note, I came across so many quotes on trust. The internet is a vast space and this is the first time I have come across so much bullshit in .028 seconds (according to google). Each and every one of the quotes was about, how easily trust is broken (compared to a second, a crumpled piece of paper) or how you should trust in god but lock your car. And even as I realize that if that’s what I’m seeing, I really need to work on my trust issues , I still think it’s bullshit. How can it take a second to break years of trust? All that means is that when it came to the test of trust – you failed. And if doubt sets in after thats just a spiral downward. Sure it feels safe to be protected but you only put the armour on when you expect to be attacked, right? And it’s the same with God and the car. It seems like an oxymoron – trust but don’t trust!

As a friend pointed out recently, if you have trust, if you can trust, then life is sorted isn’t it? It is the flip side of love. Faith. belief, expression hinge on it. You feel completely safe. It really would be a utopian planet wouldn’t it. But the .028 seconds of google search time proves quite the opposite.

The tough question then is the how to? And it is as easy as choosing to. And it is as difficult as walking naked on the street. Because having trust means showing your true self, exposing your underbelly so to speak. Just writing about it is making my solar plexus palpitate (seriously!).
The only thing to do is to say ‘I trust’ till you do!

Knock out Loud

knock and

 

“And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.”
(Luke 11:9-10)

Often with our family and friends, and even with our god, we presume that they know what we want. We expect them to second guess us all the time. We expect them to know what we want, when we want it. We expect them to know our likes and dislikes – even when they change. It’s almost like proof of love – if you love me, you would know this about me or you wouldn’t need to ask. I remember asking my husband once if he knew my favourite colour. And he turned around and asked me if I knew my favourite colour. And I realised that I didn’t. It had changed and so had I. But I still expected to keep up with those changes and remember the new and maybe even the old. Good God!

With our God we expect God to know our innermost thoughts. And we have so many, some of them even self destructive. Imagine God granting all our wishes or making all our thoughts possible. Wouldn’t that be a nightmare?!

We have to understand that these are not mind readers and will not be able to understand what is not expressed. (And we all know that more times than ever, we don’t know what we want 😉

The trick is to ask, ASK out loud – and can you imagine all the drama getting eliminated! It’s not that the person doesen’t know you or love you or respect you. It’s not about the other person at all. Love yourself, respect yourself enough to ask for what you want. If it’s good for you, you’ll get it. It’s not selfish to ask either, or ill mannered, it’s just being honest.

Even with your God – Ask out loud so that he/she can hear. Knock till the door opens.

Baby, it’s you!

You are the Buddha. You are Christ.
You are Shiva and you are Allah.
You are the Guru. You are the disciple.

You are nothing. And you are everything.
It all begins with you and it can only end with you.

You yourself are what you seek.
Love yourself. Live for yourself. Be kind to yourself.
Believe in yourself.

Don’t compare. There is no one in the world like you. You are perfect.
You are more than perfect, you are magnificent. You are divine.

Divinity is all pervasive, all knowing, all loving, all forgiving.
Look within for the divine spark and feed it till it becomes an inferno.
Feed it till it envelopes you so completely that you realize that
there is only you.

You are Neo. You are Agent Smith.
You are the light.
You are. It’s You.
