“LIFE IS A DEED OF TRUST”
“GOD TRUSTED YOU WITH LIFE”
When I first received these words, I was totally overwhelmed by the sheer power of the statement.
Just a few syllables, but enough to turn my world upside down.
You see, as it happens, I was raised in a catholic culture and for many years went to catholic school, where it was obligatory to take religion classes.
If memory serves me, in all those classes, I was always being taught I had to trust in God, to trust He knows better, to trust He knows all, to trust He will take care of me, and so on. Not once had I heard that God trusted me, not only that, but that He trusted me with LIFE !!!
This statement was to me as mind-blowing as eye-opening, mm, more than that, make it heart-opening. It opened my heart, completely and irrationally, it opened the way to the knowledge that comes through the heart.
As it is, rationally, I couldn’t quite follow, but deep inside me these profound sounds resonated like a booming truth, like nothing else had before.
All those many hours of religion classes wiped away in one clean stroke !
And then, when I was still struggling to follow and absorb, there came the final statement:
“YOU WERE BORN BECAUSE YOU WERE TRUSTED”
…………….. Second wave of blissful astonishment washing over me … I was born because I had been trusted …. ??? WOW!!
My mind felt like splitting open like the Red Sea in an effort to absorb this new kind of knowledge in all its profundity. I needed to spend some time alone with these words, some quiet time alone with these words.
I closed the door of my room and meditated. I needed some time to digest all this, I felt the need to make it mine, to pull its essence /teaching/truth into every fiber and cell of my body. And to see where it was taking me.
And then, for the first time, I really kind of saw it.
Just as God had trusted me with life, He was also trusting me now with the writing of this little book, `His` little book.
All He was gently imparting to me in dreams and waking meditations could not be meant for me only; I could not be given all this and not share it.
He was telling me this was part of the LIFE He had trusted me with.
How could I let His trust down?
I think this is the very moment when FOAL and the Angels was conceived, as a book , I mean, and not as a bundle of uncoordinated pages of messages and dreams .
