We've heard a lot of 'stories' lately -- in the media, our friends conversations and yes, even in our own minds. Stories of lack, limitation, blame, etc.. The other day I was talking with musician Charlie Thweat and he reminded me of a statement from the Course in Miracles:

"Trust will solve every problem here."

Why don't we trust? Most of us have an experience or two in our past that led us to believe we couldn't. It also led us to the place where we think we have to do it all ourselves. That belief, of course, drew other experiences that proved the beliefs value in our lives. So we struggle, and the struggle brings more struggle.

Some traditions tell us to turn our lives over to Spirit. Yet, if we can't trust others or ourselves -- how can we trust Spirit?

The problem is our perception of Spirit. We treat it as if it is a person, with all the qualities of being human - both good and bad.

The Science of Mind teaches that Spirit is not an entity - it is Principle. I like to think of It as energy - a Divine Energy that is all powerful, all knowing, and everywhere present - including within us. It is a Principle that anyone can use, in fact we've been using it our whole life! Now that we are aware of It, we can consciously use It!!

Think of this Energy as being like the electricity in the room you are sitting in. You can't see it, but you know it's there and instantly available when you flip the switch. You don't have to do any special ritual or ceremony. You don't have to say particular words. You don't have to make any promises to make it work. You know the electricity is there, so you reach out and flip the switch.

What would your life be like if you believed it were this easy? Contemplate this today. Consciously decide the quality of Life you want, declare your intention, and remember, trust will solve every problem.


All around us is the creative intelligence of The Divine. It is constantly giving of Itself to Its creations. We are one of those creations. This wonderful Divine Energy is within us, acting as us at all times.

I allow myself to trust. I declare "I rely on Principle working in my life." I clear my mind and heart to think good things. I am in tune with right action. I am inspired by Love.

Everything I need is at hand. I have nothing to complain about whatsoever. Spirit moves me forward in grace. My life reflects the Divine Life, and this is good, very good.

I am so grateful I can trust. God is my all sufficiency. All is well in my world.

I release these words to the Law of Mind, trusting they are so, and so It is.
