What Trusting the Universe Really Means
These tumultuous times—from pandemic to political unrest—could be seen as an unfolding process that requires you to “trust the universe.” But what exactly does that mean? What aspects of the universe are you trusting when you say you trust it, and is it a skill you can build?
On one hand, this spiritual adage may trigger your skepticism, and on the other it has a noble lineage—have faith, trust the process, let go and let God, don't push the river, Thy will be done.
In this service and follow-up hands-on 2-hour workshop—and through self-reflective questions and sharing—you'll explore what “trust the universe” really means for you, how to build acts of trust into your life, whether you believe the universe is a benevolent place or not, and why trusting the universe may ultimately depend on staying in conversation with it.
