Courage to bet bottom dollar on…. 


You never know how much you really believe anything until it’s truth of falsehood becomes a matter of life and death to you. It is easy to say you believe a rope to be strong and sound as long as you are merely using to cord a box.  But suppose you had to hang by that rope over a precipice,wouldn’t you  then first discover how much you really trusted it?”
                       C. S. Lewis
Trust is something believed to be true. Our holding power to trust depends upon our acceptance of the other persons ability to do good or right.  The only trust that never fails is the one that a child shares with the mother. Trust is as indispensable as food and water to living beings on this planet.  It is on thing we cling on to like an ivy. The most important plug in for interchange of ideas is trust. The underlying assumption of any connection or fellowship is trust. Without it we would be moving around with baggages, fearing to reveal the true us. Our dependence on our wisdom, perception  and warmth makes the real difference. The more we rely on these inner senses, easier it becomes to trust. Trusting  does not come easy as we are faint hearted. We dread to be forsaken, laid bare and put down. We often marvel at the trapeze artists who soar through the space catching the flying swing from each other, risking  their lives ; but they do it with ease because they simply trust their counterparts at the other end. Unkept promises and sometimes well intentioned lie is enough to invoke distrust. To enhance the ability to trust we need to count on ourselves first. We too are here to do something  right just as we expect of others. To trust we need to get down to brass tacks. It cannot be erected on a figment of imagination. It requires something concrete. It’s a gamble. Here you pawn your time, money and even life at times. Inspite of this trust may never win. It is simply about your courage to  bet bottom dollar on something or someone.
