DEPENDENCE & TRUST
(26 January 2008 by Carl A. Patton)
These are the inspired thoughts of
the righteous as they answer the call
of the Wind.
Thus we pray that the Brethren will
see, hear and feel these humble words
as they will serve you well this time
The young new born baby knew
nothing else but trust and
dependence on his mother.
I saw my grandfather William
Patton old and dependent on a
care giver. But was this trust?
Is trust a person trusted? He had
a firm belief in the honesty, the justice
and power of a person or thing.
Was this also faith?
Meanwhile the man who was dependent
relied on another for support or help.
This condition also could be realized
in the fact of being controlled or influenced
by something else.
Is trust or how is trust related to dependence?
Can you trust someone and not be dependent on
them? Well is dependence a negative
emotion, thing or not?
Is dependence then a positive reaction
to being held to trust someone that
could render to us what we are dependent
But can you really discuss dependence and
trust and not discuss independence? What
does the freedom from the control, influence,
Support or help of others mean? Is being
independent then needing, wishing and getting
no help from others?
Why just why do we have “In God We
Trust” on new money? Is God all we can
truly trust? If this is so why is there such,
A thing as the trust in humankind.
Neither dependence nor independence looms
in the negative. However trust is a
reality only seen in God.
