Trust - by Gharwang Rinpoche

Trust

Today, when I looked back twenty years ago, what really came to my mind, was not just the time that has changed but we have changed more than anything else. What I have learnt from all my experiences was that one has to be always open to ideas and changes and move on. It is very important in anyone’s life to have a heart to respect and care for others. However, this doesn’t mean that we have to trust everyone.

 

For instance, when we take a walk in the street, we meet many people and may say hello to each other, but we don’t have to believe in all of them. In addition, this issue concerns many people and we all know that trust has to be built through many years, not just in one day. Moreover, sometimes we are a bit confused as we may feel that when we respect others, we must also trust them as well. If we remembered, Buddha said, ”you don’t have to believe in me now, if you think that what I have said was right, then it is your choice, otherwise you don’t have to embrace my way”.

Finally, it is nothing wrong to observe and take some time before we can really trust someone and I honestly think that this is the right way to move forward. Therefore, respect others but to believe and trust in someone, should take a while longer. Such an approach will save us a little from suffering, after all we are all in the Dark age and it may get more exciting!

Have a nice weekend!
