“We all need basic human values rooted in trust and affection.” – Dalai Lama

Without this basic human need, as the Dalai Lama refers to “trust,” it’s difficult to feel safe and secure. Whenever trust is broken, your beliefs are painfully tested, setting free your insincerities, which can lead to irreparable damage within that relationship, whether it’s with a loved one, a colleague, businesses, the government, the media, etc. In this shaky political climate, it’s tempting to give into your fears and keep your guard up, trusting no one. But that helps, well, no one, least of all yourself. Use this guided meditation from Sonima’s meditation master Sanjeev Verma to learn how to restore your faith in humanity.
