As natural as breathing - Daily Dharma, September 23rd, 2009

In order to communicate very openly with the world, you need to develop fundamental trust. This kind of trust is not trusting “in” something, but simply trusting. It is very much like your breath. You do not consciously hold on to your breath, or trust in your breath, yet breathing is your very nature. In the same way, to be trusting is your very nature. To be trusting means you are fundamentally free from doubt about your goodness and about the goodness of others.

– Dr. Jeremy Hayward, from “First Thought,” Tricycle, Spring 1995
