Love is what we experience when truth and action collide. It is an explosion in our heart.
When we approach relationships of any kind, where truth and action fall into alignment, all manner of inner barriers, built upon protections that we no longer need, crumble and fall into the sea of illusion. Many times we approach a relationship with a partner from the perspective that if we can trust them enough, then our security will be maintained. Once we place our trust in another, we have given up truth. Once we place our trust in ourselves, the same result ensues. The only thing we can really trust is the truth. And the truth is that we will not remain the same. The truth is that we are here to learn and grow and change in ways that we cannot account for. The truth is that the person we promise to be, is not capable of remaining stagnant. This is a blessing, but it also turns trust upon it’s ear when it comes to relationship with partners. It challenges our sense of safety within our beings.
After all, isn’t trust essential? Can we love without trust? When we are honest, there is not a single one of us who has ever been able to always behave in ways that another trusted us to. There is not a single one of us that can reliably behave in ways that we trust ourselves to. It isn’t that we aren’t trustworthy in our souls. Our hearts are trustworthy. But we are here balancing out our hearts with our ego’s, and we aren’t done yet. The very nature of being run by our ego’s makes trusting them a dicey notion altogether. Plan on being tricked. We are meant to learn through the ways we fall short of our own expectations of trust. These lessons are how we approach the heart of truth.
So, I speak here upon my newly found love of throwing out trust and throwing myself into the arms of truth. And in relationship, this has been a profound gift. I do not approach my partner because I trust them…I approach them because in truth, I know that they are who I wish to be with in my innermost core. I trust implicitly that when I follow my truth, I have grown immensely through my partnership. It hasn’t felt safe on a personality level, but my heart has never grown more. My soul has never felt freer and more met by another human. And at the core, it is because I chose to drop trust and open to truth.
I mention this because it seems to me, that more than ever, relationship is becoming an ever more potent source for personal growth for people. As more and more people find themselves awakening, they also find their issues arising quicker and more intensely through their partnerships, friendships, and even family bonds with children and parents. As our issues come up, trust and security will feel threatened. Even the most wonderful relationship will feel challenging as the soul awakens and shrugs off the heavy coat of ego. Projection of your issues onto those around you may harry you at every turn. What to do? Who can you trust?
Trust no one. But rely upon the truth you feel in your heart. The truth is that you will feel all the range of feelings. They are the truth of what needs healing. Move towards wherever you see the most truth being revealed. Bravely approach truth, especially when you feel that trust is in short supply. For in truth, when the ego is leading, we do not actually trust anyone, not even ourselves. Ego’s are not trustworthy. Ego’s are sand on the beach and we live in times of increasingly high tides.
Place your heart on the path of truth and stand fast on that spot. Boldly love someone, even if you do not feel trust…if the truth is that your heart longs to be with them. When you can be clear with yourself, and with another, that the truth is that your heart belongs with them, that you wish to be with them, regardless of any of their issues, regardless of your insecurity or theirs, then you will find a deep freedom and you will experience love in a true form. And it may not be that they shift to join you. That condition must be released for you to be honestly offering the truth. But by and by, either they will shift, or someone who deeply resonates with what you offer will appear.
It only begs the question, do you want to attract love, trust or truth in your relationships? Trust is variable and shifts constantly as we learn and grow, with no guarantees. It is like asking the snow to not melt when the sun emerges. Truth is a committment to something eternal, like the ocean and sky. Love is what happens when we follow the truth at all costs. A divine relationship, with another, is when two people consciously acknowledge and align upon the truth of their resonance simultaneously.
Love and embrace the truth at all costs and watch your life change.
