"Trust does not mean that everything will be right. Trust means everything is already all right.
Whenever you use the word trust you always ask, 'in whom?' as if trust needs an object. No, trust does not need any object. Trust is state of your being; it is not object-oriented...Trust means be yourself: don't do anything which goes against your nature."
A Sufi mystic knocked at the door of a very rich man. He was a beggar and he wanted just enough so that he could have his meal.
The rich man shouted at him and said, "Nobody knows you here!"
"But I know myself," said the dervish. "How sad it would be if the reverse were true. If everybody knew me and I was not aware of who I am, how sad it would be. Yes, you are right, nobody knows me here. But I know myself."
"To know others is wisdom;
To know yourself is enlightenment
To master others requires force;
To master yourself requires true strength." Lao-tzu
