I once told my friend David Hoffmeister, “Trust is more important than breathing to me right now!” Nothing had made sense and I was approaching a complete blind spot. A moment when you can make a turn in your mind but there is absolutely no previous experience on which to rely. No buoyant history of how it all worked out well for you in the past. Why not? Because this type of following goes against all natural self preservation in order to lift you into a compleetely new realm of being. You are about to depart from an entrenched often “good” and “noble” sense of your self concept, and you can’t do that alone. You are limited by your personal perspective, so it becomes essential to Trust a mighty companion—one Given by the Spirit as a symbol of true and transcendent “Self” interest.
“… the teacher of God feels called upon to sacrifice his own best interests on behalf of truth. He has not realized as yet how wholly impossible such a demand would be. He can learn this only as he actually does give up the valueless. Through this, he learns that where he anticipated grief, he finds a happy lightheartedness instead; where he thought something was asked of him, he finds a gift bestowed on him.” ACIM (M-4.I.A.7)
I have been blessed with many Brothers and Sisters, who when invited, could witness to my deepest hearts calling. We must forgo the laws of friendship and instead stand beside one another in Christ’s fellowship because “Trust would settle every problem now.”
“The message and the messenger are one. And you must see your brother as yourself … Set in his holiness, the Christ in him proclaims Himself as you.” ACIM (T-25.I.2)
It is my great joy to connect with those making that great turn in the mind in Trust, for Truth.
