When you hear someone say, “I don’t even trust myself anymore,” the self they don’t trust is the personal ego—a false sense of self that creates misery and failure in life. But in every person there is also a Real Self, which is one with God’s Presence. That is where you can always place your trust.
Life requires constant adjustments. You can make those adjustments at the ego level of your mind, with all of its limitations and fears of the unknown. Or you can let the God level of your mind be in control of all necessary adjustments. Which do you think will have better results?
In today’s world, things that used to work in the past no longer do. They are memories in the ego level of the mind. Things that will work today are future realities held in the God level of the mind. To reach that level, release the ego every day to the all-knowing Consciousness of God within you.
God brings people into your life so you can learn something about yourself. From difficult people you learn what happens when one functions at the ego level of the mind. From those who brought you happiness you learn what happens when one draws closer to God’s Presence within.
