We look for the things we fear, are uncertain of or doubt; in our relationships, job, children, partner. Sometimes if you look hard enough, you will find those exact things in places what they do not actually exist. Other times they may exist in places you never expected to find them. The ONLY counter measure to fear, uncertainty & doubt is love, faith & trust.

If we place our trust in others only when we think THEY have earned, created, or are worthy of it, we will most often be left disappointed & damaged because no man can be all things or totally answerable to another. The moment I base my trust on an others actions, words, choices, I have relinquished control of the outcome & my state of being to the other person. When I make a personal choice to trust despite of or outside of these things, I own the outcome, not them.

If that trust is betrayed, it is not something done TO me, making me a victim, but something I chose, on my terms. In choosing & owning the act of trust, we make it our own, we drop our fears & our dependency on others for our well being. We free ourselves from their actions & choices, which allows us to clearly see, face & deal with our own.

Trust is a choice. Either granted or earned, to trust another is to actively CHOOSE trust & faith over doubt & fear. Ultimately, making that choice to trust transforms you. It is the ACT of trust itself that matters, changes your life, NOT whether or not it was well placed. It is not the betrayals of others that define us, but whether or not WE are willing, brave & strong enough to RISK being betrayed, to RISK trusting.

Often the things we fear, hide & run from most, for much of our lives, are the very things that will save us. Sometimes you just have to choose to let the boogey man out of the closet, with trust & faith that rather than destroying you, it is the one thing that will actually save you. How beautifully ironic & twisted is that?

It is in the active choice of trust, love & faith that we find our own truth, self, nature & even at times our redemption & salvation.
How Brave Will You Be, Today?

The worst lies are the ones we tell ourselves. The worst verbal abuse comes from our own tongue. The most negative influence is the devil on our own shoulder. The cruelest judge is the one staring back in the mirror. The person really withholding the love you need is you. No one will ever out-do you at playing mind-games. You must stop doing this to yourself! The universe is calling you to heal, not to agonize over your mistakes. Quit overthinking; this is what surrendering really means. Don't focus on negativity and don't even obsess about "fixing" things or yourself. Don't force "positive thinking." These things can be psychological irritants. Just leave yourself alone! When you pick at things they never heal. Just relax and give yourself some time.

Remember that you are the angel of your own life. Look past your ugly thinking; your fears, mistakes, worries and doubts. Your struggles seem to be external, but we are always destroyed from the inside out. The way you transcend your challenges is by listening to the inner-guide within you. Your good judgment, your discernment, your kind thoughts and your own loving heart — in service of your highest good — is the angel you have been looking for to deliver you. The moment you accept your own beauty and power is the moment your deliverance beings.

"Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such."

If u live in a continuous state of hate u can do no good
Any good u do will be no more than a dark reflection of it's shadow

Integrity, honor and intention are meaningless
When u stand by and do nothing.
It is our actions that determine who we are and what we will become.

When you allow the choices and behavior of another person
To Cause you strife and mental disarray,
You are choosing to give your life away,
And live in the shadow theirs,
Rather than in the power of your own.

To stand by and do nothing
Is the same as pulling the trigger yourself.

When a single perception
Becomes your sole reality,
to the destruction of all other possibilities,
Yours becomes the only truth you'll ever be able to see,
Leaving you with a Blind spot,
As broad as the side of a barn.

You can't bring light to the darkness if you let all the candles burn out cuz you are to afraid to strike a match next to the case of dynamite.

***** it, you'll either shed some illumination or BLOW your **** out of the darkness, but either way, you'll find your way back to the light.

It's True no one gets out alive.
The greatest lie however,
is that we come into
and go out of this world alone.
That might be true
if we were Humans
having a Spiritual experience.
But we are Spirit
having a Human experience.
We Have Not
and Never Will Be
Alone.

The Glass is not half empty
Nor is it half full
It is simply awaiting its fate,
Always Held in someone else's hands.

And Then I Saw.
And  Found That I had Loved.
And My Cup is Always Full.
Even When It Overflows,
It's Sides Will Never Empty.

There is no top nor bottom,
Only that which is held in between,
The source and keeper
Of all and every thing.

"There is no top nor bottom
(to my Love or Heart)
Only that which is held in between
(It is a bottomless swelling spring without end)
The source and keeper
Of all and every thing"
