Turning Towards Goodness

At this time of uncertainty and powerlessness, here are some goodness we implicitly and unquestioningly trust to work for us. These are things that happen magically without us even having to lift a finger. 

We trust a lot of things to work… we just forget that we do!

We forget that each day, we implicitly and unquestioningly trust…

  • The sun to rise and set in a steady rhythm, helping all of life on earth. The sun not only creates brightness for us to go about our lives, but helps creatures look for food, stops our planet from turning into ice, provides food to plants, warms our seas, stirs our atmosphere, generates our weather patterns, and so much more.
  • The moon to wax and wane, supporting all and especially creatures heavily dependant on the lunar cycle.
  • The earth to rotate without wobbling on its axis, giving us steady seasons for our crops to grow.
  • The space to have sufficient oxygen for all to breathe.
  • That we won’t be flying off into space thanks to gravity keeping us glued to earth!
  • That we will be protected from harmful sunrays by earth’s atmosphere – which allows in just enough sunlight for us, deflecting excess rays back into space.


For many of us, most of the time,

  • We trust our homes to keep us safe from harm.
  • We trust the accessibility of electricity and water in our neighbourhoods, using simply a tap or a switch.
  • We trust our traffic lights to work as they should, and drive safely because they do.
  • We trust important letters and purchases to reach us as they should.
  • We trust our kettle to boil to the right temperature for our morning tea/coffee.
  • We trust that spoon of sugar to bring us the right sweetness (and trust that no one’s swapped sugar for salt!)


Without any effort on our part,

  • We trust our bodies to know what to do with the food we consume.
  • We trust our legs to take us to places and trust our hands to bring us what we need with just a thought.
  • We trust our fingers to type without having to look at the keyboard!
  • We trust our facial muscles to express what what feel without words – through our smiles and soft eyes.
  • We trust our nose to filter out particles from entering our bodies.
  • We trust our bodies to carry out tasks each day that are phenomenally complex, requiring the coordination of dozens of muscles and firing of thousands of nerves.


There is so much we already trust. In fact the number of things we implicitly and explicitly trust add up to a number far bigger than the things we don’t. I’m sure you will have more to add to this list. Spend some time today thinking about it 🙂

  4. Heya this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting
    to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code
    with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to
    get advice from someone with experience. Any help would
    be greatly appreciated!

    reduced-quality variation of big images right into the HTML or CSS and, after the
    page is filled, change the low-grade picture with the original.
