The difference between Hope and Trust is significant. At first sight there is nothing a matter with feeling Hope. But when I started to think more, I came to the conclusion (which is very personal, I realize that) that Hope also contains an element of expected disappointment.
“I do hope things will turn out great, but….it also can go into a totally different direction.”
“I sure hope this will turn out well, but… you never know.”
“I deeply hope he/ she will return my call, but…I don’t want to count on that.”
“I really hope he/she will make it, but…I don’t want to be happy before that happens.”
Because people never know what’s gonna happen they will mostly hold back. Hope could be translated in cautious expectation.
But why would we choose that when there is another choice available; the choice of Trust? Is it based on Fear we can’t seem to Trust and rather Hope? So whenever the big bang will knock us down we already considered the possibility something like that might happen? And feel less hurt? That is a decision too you know…What do you believe is a better choice?
Personally I choose to Trust. And though that is not always as easy as I would like it to be, I can still CHOOSE it. The advantage of choosing Trust is huge…No sleepless nights anymore, no worrying thoughts, no disturbing emotions. Trust gives me a relaxation, a knowing deep inside everything will be taken care of no matter what. But on what do I base my Trust? And how can The Others do that?
I will tell you right now.
I Connect myself to the Light and I ask for Guidance and Trust.
On this I will Trust.
On this I Trust.
Why would you say the second and the third sentence? Because the second sentence is your will to do Trust and the third is THAT you Trust. Can it really be as simple as that? O Yes!! It IS as simple as that…
WE are the ones who MAKE things complicated. Like we feel the need to put lots of effort in it because otherwise we will possibly get the feeling we did not do enough, did not work hard enough etc.
Brian and I talked the other day about Love Relationships in general. Brian can still feel stunned when he sees people fighting with and shouting at their partner. Or ignoring the partner, not sure what feels more painful to them.
Both Brian and I deeply believe a good Love relationship is a good love Relationship. We both decided not to choose less than that. It means we can think differently about things but we always decide to talk about it, to negotiate with each other, to accept each others opinion. And to feel safe within our Love relationship, no matter what. Does this mean we are divined? Hahahahaha, no of course not, we just Love to Live this way. Does this mean we never have an argument? No way! We do have our arguments, but we simply argument from a Loving place. We do not believe in putting a huge effort in a Love relationship to MAKE it good each day. Our base IS good.
We also hope for things, still that is more specific a different kind of hope because it’s related to a deep believe we are taken care of by the Universe/ the Light. We link it to Trust.
How about your choice?
