Living with the Spirit of Trust and Kindness

Living with the Spirit of Trust and Kindness

by Milare Turgeon

There are moments when life here on Earth can get a little sticky.

From quirks, to setbacks, to passions, to traumas, our experience of life can depend so undeniably on the perception and outlook that we were bred with and then later on chose to adopt. Every situation is so deeply impacted by beliefs and choosing our beliefs is the most powerful tool to honor in this journey here.

I ask myself every day, if not a few times a day, just to check in, “If I were to go right this moment would I go in peace?” And most of the time just asking this question is like a reset button, I know exactly what I should be doing. It strangely is not a gloomy question but rather I experience it as a vitalizing and empowering one.

There are so many goals set to achieve, so many tasks, duties and commitments, all the while the moments full of freedom and aliveness are the softening ones. The ones that carry our tensions to the curb, the ones that unite our spirits to our purpose, the ones that give light and hope to the hopeless. The feeling of trust, that unshakable trust in ourselves and our capacities is what sets us free. Where there is trust, there is a willingness to accept and surrender. When doubt and fear are the forerunners, trust is not even detectable on the radar.

Kindness encourages trust. It calls its name and beckons it to stick around. Kindness gives space and opportunity to situations where breakdowns and malfunction are in process. A little kindness towards our perception, a little kindness towards our interpretation, a little kindness towards our words. Kindness towards adversity and challenges.

My husband is fully present in the corporate world and he observes time and time again how the different ‘style players’ get the same results. Some are bulldozer styles, cut off from the process while others are mindful of the process, and both in the end obtain the same result. Although the mindful approach builds relationships and fosters empowerment and collaboration, the other destroys connection and alienates the others. The end results for the bottom line is the same however the end result for relationship experience is very different. Kindness can celebrate, kindness listens, it looks for ways to understand, it looks for win-win outcomes in business and negotiation, it defuses, dismantles, and disables arguments, kindness heals, kindness is joy. It is the most powerful tool.

To give ourselves a little more of these moments would be the light of the future. I dream of a day were each one of us carries trust and kindness as our core beliefs. Where we know and feel deep within our self that our body, mind and spirit is fueled to freedom, peace and joy only by trust and kindness. Where freedom is truly felt and embodied. If we were to carry only two things in this life, one for each hand, one for each side of the brain, one for day, one for night, may it be Trust and Kindness.

With this holiday season around the corner may we feel comfort and joy in our everyday life, and carry this gift so it may touch directly or indirectly, all of life.

Bless your life.

Thank you life, I am sorry life, please forgive me life, I love you life.
