Master: Trust has to be earned. In life you might be hurt by those who have taken advantage of your trust, but that does not mean you stop trusting people. You can be more careful than before but, to live a life without trusting anyone is an empty life. Pray to God to guide you so you are not gullible and to protect you from being taken advantage of. If someone did take advantage of you think of it as a chance to clean up your karmic accounting. You, too, might have taken advantage of someone’s trust in the past. Ultimately, we are building our trust in God as we get battered by the world abusing our trust. Satish Daryanani
