Studying Sha’ar HaBitachon, Rabbeinu Bachaya’s “Gate of Trust” ~ the Timeless Torah Book that can teach US ALL to How to Live with Certainty and Discover Tranquility! [Fixed]
Chapter Two #3 “IN YOUR HANDS” The Anatomy of Trust – Part III
In Episode 41 the fourth and fifth criteria necessary to inspire the unreserved and absolute trust we call Bitachon, were spelled out. To be sure, as each category of requisite virtues is illustrated the bar is lifted and the field of contenders narrows.
In fact, as the entire gamut of (7) qualities a truly trusted entity would have to posses is further unfurled, it becomes increasingly clear that there is only one Provider in whom we can place our full confidence.
In this third and closing segment of of the trust trilogy, we learn of the final two criteria whose qualities must be present to allow for the unwavering inner peace called Bitachon to flourish.
Rabbeinu Bachaya argues that Absolute Trust [in a provider] can only be earned by [a provider who has] Absolute Control. He concludes with the idea that an equally important imperative [of the would be provider] is to posses is an extreme degree of Kindness and Generosity.
We now have a complete picture of what is required to inspire confidence and enable us to build an absolute sense of reliance; a serious understanding of what it takes to achive a blissful sense of Trust that could grant us perfect peace of mind and remove all and any worry or anxiety forever.
