In this episode we’re going to wrestle with the concept of trust. We realize that at times it’s harmful, but we’ll look at how it can help us do life better as well. Yea, no easy answers, here, but we never said that there were, did we? As always, our conversation will be rogueish, and we’ll weave in our core values of seeking wisdom, applying the “why’s” and, as always, we’ll share a mystic MacNugget. Once again, “It’s strap in time…”

Manifesto points to consider:
- Together is Typically Better.
- Wisdom lets the wise, eternal self out of the cage.

- Earned trustworthiness. Just do it!
- Biblical story of the invalid and his tribe.
- True self
Can we trust our hearts?
Learning to trust aids in decisiveness, maturity, and strength of character.
“Trust each moment to take you where you need to go.” -Tama Kieves
