Jon Kabat-Zinn’s “Full Catastrophe Living”: Trust

“It is impossible to become like somebody else. Your only hope is to become more fully yourself. This is the reason for practicing meditation in the first place. Teachers, books, CD’s and apps can only be guides and offer signposts and suggestions. It is important to be open and receptive to what you can learn from other sources, but ultimately you still have to live your own life, every moment of it. In practicing mindfulness, you are practicing responsibility for being yourself and learning to listen to and trust in your own being. The more you cultivate trust in yourself, the easier you will find it will be to trust other people more and see their basic goodness as well.”
