"Never, never trust.
But be friendly.
By being friendly toward others
You increase your non-trusting.
The idea is to be independent,
Not glued, one might say, to others.
Thus one becomes ever more
Compassionate and friendly.
Whatever happens, stand on your own feet
And memorize this incantation:
Do not trust.”
~ Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche”
