“First I want you to be established as a buddha. Then the second step is very easy: any day I can tell you to jump into the cosmos,” says Osho.
Osho says, “Through judgment you can never be intimate with a Master. Judgment creates barriers. Only through trust an intimacy arises…”
“Trust is a touchstone… One day you come across a real touchstone. You pick it up, it is warm, but still you throw it,” states Osho.
“This Sufi saying wants to create the third type of man, the real man: who knows how to do and who knows how not to do,” expounds Osho.
Osho talks on ‘Trust’: “It is the highest form of love, it is the essential core of love. Love itself is a mystery and indeﬁnable, but love is like a circumference and trust is its very center, its soul.”

Trust is never conditional. I trust you, not because you are trustworthy; I trust you because I cannot distrust.
Since I have been able to trust more and more in existence, everything is going so easily, so softly, so beautifully.
