THREE GOLDEN RULES

Sylvia Marina - Saturday, May 11, 2013

THREE GOLDEN RULES written by Sylvia Marina

As we continue to evolve it fascinates me that we unintentionally seem to publish what people need. I thank you for your comments and the stories of your life that you share with us that confirm to us that so often what I begin to write and what actually becomes the finished article is often something very different and that’s okay.

I’m learning more to trust my fingers to do the walking and to surrender to the spirit of sharing rather than the properness of how writings should be. I so value that we are in this life together. Many of our readers I have never met in person and yet I know, I know you, and you know me. Our lives walk simultaneously across the landscape of time, learning, changing, trusting and growing together.

Today my attention is drawn to trust. I think of the hundreds who read our Newsletters and Good Medicine and the many more that over the years attend our programs and continue to stay in touch and support our work.

In all relationships trust is an important factor. Without trust no significant relationship will survive, it is trust and respect for another that makes each relationship meaningful.

Recently I was asked, how do you build trust in a relationship? My answer in that moment was, trust is something that is either present or not present. However there are contributing factors to building trust and I believe if a relationship fades away one or more of the contributing factors have been broken.

Three important factors are:

  1. Keep your promises
  2. Be responsible
  3. Always be honest

Following these three golden rules, it is easy to build relationships, it becomes easy to be attentive, caring, thoughtful, kind. Being supportive then becomes a joy.

When I think of trust in relationships, I think of the word sincere...either you are or you aren’t!
It is not possible to be half sincere if you are not one hundred percent sincere you are at zero.

Relationships grow where partners are honest with each other. Honesty builds trust.
Always be honest. Be responsible and keep promises, that includes being on time. Honouring another’s time is always appreciated and remembered. I always remember the people who honour my time. People who are ‘on time’ are people who know how to keep promises. When you keep promises you don’t need to make excuses.

As I write please understand I don’t wish you to take risks when driving in dangerous conditions. This happened to us this week...everyone for our planning meeting was delayed by the storm. The road conditions were hazardous. Our delayed meeting start was not a blemish on anyone’s character! My expectation was that we either reschedule the meeting or travel safe. We trusted each other to travel safe and we did.

In business relationships, trust is a greater emotion than love.
In personal and intimate relationships once trust is built, love will follow.

If you are tempted to ask if someone trusts you, my question would be why do you have to ask?
If you doubt someone’s trust in you or whether you trust another, meditate on the word sincerity...there is no midway to being sincere, either you are or you are not!

And for those you gave birth to, or fell romantically in love with, if through circumstances of life you discover you cannot trust them, but you realise your heart never stops loving them, and that’s why, life at times hurts deeply.
