"On the journey of enlightenment, drop trust. There is no one and nothing to trust in. Even if you strive to merge with the universe, it is not trust, but surrender. Trust says, 'Take care of me and meet my wants. If you don't I will feel betrayed.' Surrender says, 'I will let go of my wants and allow myself to become one with the wants of the universe.' From surrender no betrayal is possible. Fully surrendering may mean bankrupcy, disease and even death. Surrender lets go of ego, while trust holds on to ego."
