Living with Trust

This is the floating island of Uros, in Lake Titicaca, Peru. It is entirely made from reeds, which are constantly replenished from the top as they decays from the bottom. Even the houses and...for the most , are made from reeds. Completely self reliant, the island (one of several in the lake) and its people have existed for hundreds of years. Their handcrafts are considered to be of the highest quality.

Thoughts from the Daily OM:
As we create the life of our dreams, we often reach a crossroads where the choices seem to involve the risk of facing the unknown versus the safety and comfort of all that we have come to trust. Knowing we have some backup may help us work up the courage to take those first steps, until we are secure in knowing that we have the skills to work without one. But when we live our lives from a place of balance and trust in the universe, we may not see our source of support, but we can know that it is there.

If we refuse to act only if we can see the safety net,m we may be allowing the net to become a trap as it creates a barrier between us and the freedom to pursue our goals. Remove fear from the equation and then, without even wondering what is going on below, we can devote our full attention to the dream that awaits us.
