I've always loved the first few lines of this poem. I think one of the most important things we can cultivate in our lives is self trust. It's only by trusting ourselves that we find out whether we are trustworthy. We then know who to put our trust in, because if our radar is sharpened by use we won't be blown about by different winds going in different directions, we'll know where we are going and where we want to go. The more you practise trusting your self, the more you strengthen that muscle. Self trust is the antidote for a lot of things: confusion, doubt, a feeling of unworthiness and so on. It grounds you so you know where you are and what you feel. It helps you to get clear. And we all need more clarity in our lives.
