You can trust reality, and you can trust it completely. The reason you can trust reality is: absolutely nothing takes place outside of the “natural laws” established by Source, and those laws have all been established from a place of incredible wisdom and love.
The ego typically has serious trouble with this. It thinks: “How can I trust reality when it is so dangerous? Reality is cold, merciless, unrelenting. Reality has cruel people in it. Reality is unfair. Reality is full to the brim with suffering!” And thus the idea of actually trusting reality seems impossible.
Reality was built for Source by Source, so that you- as a part of Source- could experience exactly all that you are experiencing now in your life. Reality is not some ship adrift out at sea ready to sink unattended, or some happenstance, or some forgotten creation- it is perpetually and indefinitely and completely within the loving Source that created it. You are, too, even if you are not consciously aware of that fact.
How can such a loving Source permit us to be in a place where we may experience so much lack of love? You are so loved by Source that you have been given the opportunity to temporarily forget that you are unconditionally loved, so that you might actually experience real contrast and thereby better experientially understand what that love truly is, forever. You have been given the gift of the opportunity to “play real life,” the gift of being able to make meaningful choices and to experience the results, the gift of being able to live as someone experiencing defined perspectives- and this physical reality is simply the stage. Its purpose is being fulfilled, and that purpose is ultimately loving.
All the laws that take place to govern the workings of the world do so for the ultimate purposes of Source, which are all motivated by love- which means ultimately for our benefit! For instance, even the most horrendous pain can be a profoundly valuable experience in the grand scheme. As we learn to trust reality for what it is, it can better work with us to further the grander divine awareness-expanding intentions that often elude our limited human minds.
Recognize also that the entire stage of reality takes place within your awareness of it. It is not an independent external thing as it appears on the surface- it is something that takes place within your awareness. The reality you experience then is a reflection of what YOU are, right now. Allow it to function as the mirror it is meant to be! You can trust the mirror- it is only faithfully serving the purpose of reflecting back to you what you believe about it.
