Trust the People






If you don't trust the people,
you make them untrustworthy.

Tao Te Ching
Trans. Stephen Mitchell




The practice of putting others in the center is not simply a crusade to do "good." It is a practice based on the understanding that our own happiness is inextricably linked with the happiness of others.

Dzigar Kongtruil, Light Comes Through



Christ is the population of the world,
and every object as well. There is no room
for hypocrisy. Why use bitter soup for healing
when sweet water is everywhere?

Rumi
Trans. Coleman Barks
