BkThtTue 2 - Inner Trust

From page 61 of Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom:

  • "You see," he said to the girl, "you closed your eyes. That was the difference. Sometimes you cannot believe what you see, you have to believe what you feel. And if you are ever going to have other people trust you, you must feel that you can trust them, too -- even when you're in the dark. Even when you're falling."

Isn't it interesting to see that when a person has to -- really has to -- trust another person, it frequently cannot be done with our cognitive processes in motion. We cannot do it with our eyes open, we can not think it through, and we cannot make a list of pros and cons. A part of us has to let our subconscious takeover -- it is gifted in this area.
