In light of our present-day external circumstances, which raise strong fears in many people, the TRILOGOS Foundation has put a lot of thought into how it can make a contribution to helping people and, especially, how it can encourage them. For this reason, we’re launching a new series of texts, to be published as the MONTHLY IMPULSE. These texts are styled after the Trilogos Beacon Series by Linda Vera Roethlisberger.

                                                                            When the wind of change blows, 
                                             some people build walls and others build windmills.

                                                                                                                                                             Chinese proverb


Dear Trilogos friends and Dear fellow human beings,

In the course of our lives, we’ve all been able to gather many life experiences, both good and bad, each of which have shaped us. In addition, we’ve been shaped by the strategies and habits we’ve developed in response to these life experiences, especially when it came to dealing with painful situations and phases of life. We’ve also been shaped by habits that we had adopted and learned from our parents, and which have apparently served us well for quite some time, so much so that we’ve managed to live our lives successfully and contentedly.

However, you may now find yourself at a point in your life where you are becoming painfully aware of the fact that the cocoon of emotional safety you’ve spun around yourself is, ironically, also cutting yourself off from your aliveness and from the opportunity to fully engage with the people around you. The abundance and vivacity of life seems to have run dry and is no longer able to reach you.

But is that actually the case?

Many wisdom teachers and teachings assure us that the flow of life never gets interrupted, and that any opening up or closing off of the flow depends only on us and our inner attitude.

Life sends us changes all the time, that’s for sure. It is the only constant in life and accounts for what we call life. We have no choice. Each of us has our life lessons to learn, whether we want to or not. Whether we grow from these challenges or suffer (permanent) damage depends very much on whether we decide to continually keep strengthening our basic trust or, perhaps, even find and rediscover it in the first place.

To illustrate this point, I invite you to do the following exercise from the Trilogos®Method, which will allow you to recognize relatively quickly where you currently stand with your basic trust:

Getting your Bearings


Please take a notepad and pen and write your answers down.

On a scale of 1 (no confidence) to 8 (total confidence):

1. How do I assess my basic trust?  

2. At what levels have I experienced a breach of trust that I still remember and feel?

• At the private level (health, relationships)?
• At the professional/work level?
• At the financial level

On a scale of 1 (no trust) to 8 (perfect trust):
3. How much faith do I have in

• my rational assessment of situations?
• my feelings?
• my body?
• my intuition / my “gut feeling”?

4. Do I currently feel worried or concerned about a personal and/or professional aspect of my life?

5. Do I feel worried about political and demographic developments?

6. Do I have feelings of powerlessness when I think about personal and/or global crises and blows?

7. How do I react in crises?

Am I headless, desperate, pull myself back, stick my head in the sand or lose myself in the outside?
Or do I take on crises as challenges?
Or might crises even push me into peak form?

8. Have I ever had the feeling, in the face of a crisis, that I could never manage it, and then managed to cope with it after all?

9. When I look back, does the statement that I grow with crises apply to me?

• If so, how does that manifest?
• If not, do I know examples of people who have grown through a crisis?

Where do they get their strength from? What has to happen for me to feel the same way?

10. Back to my basic trust: As a child, was I able to let myself fall and trust that someone would catch me? Rarely to never, sometimes, often or always?

  •  Is this feeling of being caught and supported completely absent from my adult life?
  • Or have I had such experiences from time to time? If so, how did they manifest?
  • Do I tend to want to give people the feeling that they can rely on me and that I’m there for them come what may?

11. What does personal trust mean to me personally?

12. How would my life be different if I had more basic trust? Do I draw a link be tween my fears, worries and the ability to trust?

Allow the responses to the above questions to sit a little and repeat the process after practicing The Golden Sphere exercise over two to four weeks.

I hope that you, too, will be able to establish an unshakable basic trust by means of the TRILOGOS courses. The fact that this is possible is something that I’m absolutely convinced of, from my own experience!

May you succeed in engaging in life time and again, with all its challenges, and in keeping your heart open to the source of life.

P.S. At this point I would like to recommend one of the most fundamental Trilogos audio exercises in order to find inner balance in all situations: The Golden Sphere, spoken by Linda Vera Roethlisberger (in German) and Terry Collins (in English).
