I hope this does not sound like I am claiming trust in God. I definitely lost that and so my entire service towards God is on a different wave length. That is trying make up for losing trust. For once it is lost it does not return. The same with the Divine Light or "shechina".
Trust for me worked as long as I hung onto it.
In any case, in the Litvak kinds of Yeshiva Musar is learned I felt the real presence of God, the Shechina, and this leads to my general recommendation of making places like this or at least in ones home to have a spot dedicated to learning Torah and Musar.
