Self Mastery… Day Sixteen – Trust

25 January, 2011

This is my 28 day Mastery of Self diary. It contains thoughts and lessons from the initial course I took in June 2010 and the re-cap in January 2011. I will start each daily post with some quotes pertinent to the daily topic, then the lesson quotes that stood out for me at each itteration of the course plus some other observations that may be of interest/help. You’ll find my overview of the whole course here and Libby’s site for extra info and sign up here.

“Doubt is most often the source of our powerlessness. To doubt is to be faithless, to be without hope or belief. When we doubt, our self-talk sounds like this: ‘I don’t think I can. I don’t think I will.’ …To doubt is to have faith in the worst possible outcome. It is to believe in the perverseness of the universe, that even if I do well, something I don’t know about will get in the way, sabotage me, or get me in the end.” - Blaine Lee

“Fear of failure and fear of the unknown are always defeated by faith. Having faith in yourself, in the process of change, and in the new direction that change sets will reveal your own inner core of steel.” – Georgette Mosbacher

“The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today; Let us move forward with strong and active faith.” - Franklin D. Roosevelt

2010 course – Faith is a belief in something I can’t see or detect with my five senses. It uses my my Sixth Sense of intuition and imagination. Increasing my ability to exercise faith is a process. As I experiment my faith and see results my TRUST in the process increases. To live my Higher Purpose my TRUST in a Divine Plan is crucial.

2011 recap – TRUST IS FAITH IN ACTION. My Trust brings me inner peace because I believe that everything is going according to a Divine Plan, regardless of appearances.

For me Trust is falling into the arms of Higher Intelligence and Faith is knowing that all will be perfect as I fall…

I desire to Trust myself enough to know that I will keep my promises to myself. I allow acts for others to dominate my time. Today I promise to finish the letter to the editor. Tomorrow I promise to send it.

I also love what you said about Trust, Anthony. I had the same thought of falling, but you articulated it beautifully.

L.Kae – You go!

I discovered today that as a parent I must also Trust that my son has a Divine Plan. I feel better already!

And one more thing…if I am not feeling good, on some level I am not trusting. To Trust at a level 10 means I feel good no matter what. I want that!

Right, Lisa, and “not feeling good” is one of the signals on page 36 (negative emotion, body sensation or illness)
and should clue you into the awareness that you might be “off track.” At that point, you ask yourself, “What would I have to be thinking to not be feeling good?” And then you would find the thought which would be something like,
“I am afraid that such and such isn’t going to work out.” Then you get to challenge that thought.
