To trust life… really means to live in total allowance of what is. This does not mean that you live passively in the world. You live in the world with love, honesty and integrity. You live an empowered life.
You know that your experience of life depends entirely upon the choices you make. You know that your thoughts, words and actions lead inevitably to the consequences that follow. You know clearly what you want and what you do not want but you are not attached to the outcome.
If things do not go your way, then you trust that whatever is happening is exactly what is meant to be happening for your highest good and for the highest good of all. Perhaps you were not fully conscious in your choices or in your thoughts, words and actions. Perhaps Life has a lesson for you that will later prove to be invaluable, even if you cannot see its value right now. Perhaps Life has a grander plan for you than you have for yourself.
In any event, your trust in the unfolding of Life is unwavering and unshakeable.. If you do not allow what is happening, then you have entered into resistance, which will take you into separation. Separation creates suffering. Union and trust with Life creates Love. It is that simple.
