I have written so much about trust. It's a huge issue for me. As a child, I trusted no one but myself. Then, when I began to make poor choices in my life, I stopped trusting me. Then I went through a period where I trusted everyone but myself, whether it was deserved or not. Now, I know not to give my trust until it is earned. And I do trust my own feelings and instincts, and most of the time, I even listen.
But I still don't trust Spirit completely. I am reading Mark David Gerson's new memoir, Acts of Surrender. Over and over again, Mark David surrenders to the guidance he receives. I am resisting this deep level of surrender to my writing. In the past, I've leapt into the darkness of the unknown, knowing I would be held up. Why the lack of trust now?
Perhaps I just need to make that leap once more. Yes, yes, and yes. That is what I need to do.
How about you?

Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here on Monday and Tuesday. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair.
