The Power of Trust
“In the Indiana Jones movie, The Quest for The Holy Grail, Indy finds himself at the precipice of a bottomless chasm. On the other side of the abyss stands the sacred temple in which the cup of Christ awaits him.
It continues with a parallelism between film and life…
Indy has searched the entire world for the Holy Grail, defied all kinds rats, skeletons and villains, nearly lost his father, and risked death many times to come to this point.
Now he is so close and yet so far.
Standing alone, looking down into this endless gorge, he remembers the instruction that was foretold to help him when he reached this point in his journey: Faith.
Indy takes a deep breath and steps out over the chasm. He sees nothing to stand on, but he decides to follow the advice to *Trust*.
As soon as he leans out over the abyss, a bridge appears and he finds himself fully supported on a solid mass.
The entire chasm, which seemed quite impossible to mortal eyes, was but a test of Faith.
The bridge was there all along, but it could only be seen by those who stepped onto it.
Faith is the vision of things unseen. Only those who see the invisible can do the impossible.
Jesus instructed, Blessed are those who see and believe, and even more blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe” How many bridges have you not crossed because you couldn’t see them? How can you view things differently this time and notice the hidden gold within every fear or obstacle?
Will you give yourself the permission to leap across the chasm of your fears?, knowing that when you do, you’ll transform not only yourself, but your world as well?
How many missed opportunities for joy and fulfillment are waiting for you, right now as you read this?
Can you see the possibilities of daring to Dream a bigger Dream for yourself, your family, your community, your world?
Dare to Dream my friend, DARE to Dream! and you’ll build a bridge to your Dreams and in ways you haven’t imagined! — Alan Cohen Author of Dare to Be Yourself, and Paul Bauer
