Reliance - Without It What Becomes Of Our Life . . . ?
Reliance what does this mean to us in our life. Is it a word we could use to describe ourselves? What does it mean, and mean to us?
Are we reliable, trustworthy, someone on whom people can depend? Or are we the reverse, irresponsible, irregular, unstable, someone whose intentions are unsure?
And what in life do we rely upon? Our friends or family, our boss or colleagues, whom can we really rely upon when the going gets tough?
And can we depend upon ourselves? Do we trust ourselves? Are we honest, responsible, faithful, predictable, unfailing in our life and the things that we do?
If we were our friend, would we want to rely upon us in time of need? Hopefully, yes, but if not why not? And are we willing to do something about this (unsatisfactory) situation?
Being reliable, dependable and trustworthy needs to be a part of our everyday life. But this is a responsibility and that that comes tension and pressures and other emotions to cope with. These can add anxiety and further burdens to otherwise pressurized lives. We need to quickly put 'our' house in order. To put things into perspective for ourselves, and the people around us, we will question and ponder, think and reassess - what we do, who we are, our tensions and anxieties, ourselves. At times like these words about reliance can be very powerful - healing, soothing, comforting, relaxing . . .
The power of words . . .
As we read we can let the words gently flow over us. We can let the words quietly be spoken to us in there own sweet way. We can let ourselves open to the thoughts and their meanings, the ideas and their origin, the phrases and the understandings that they have ready for us. Ready for us to assimilate and take on board. If we let them filter through and allow the words their power to move and rejuvenate. If we let ourselves be uplifted and filled with their sometimes hidden insights. Let them gently and slowly impact on our lives as we read - and in the future when we recall their meaning for us.
I hope this reliance page will do this and more. I hope this example will help to express life in an insightful, penetrating but easy to read manner. And help us to question the lives we lead and the manner in which we live them.
Reliance should be a big thing we do trust
In your value system upon which life is based
Of life that each day you may well meet
When you can see others know how to handle
And onto other things about which you are more confident
You and leave you feeling hung out to dry
Are you someone in whom you would trust
In nature, unreliable and hard to read
Can I rely upon you
That the need to be able to trust
For then where can we go
And then we'll be on an upward climb
