"Trust yourself. At the root, at the core, there is pure sanity, pure openness. Don't trust what you have been taught, what you think, what you believe, what you hope. Deeper than that, trust the silence of your being."
Most of us find ourselves on a spiritual path because in the depths of our desires there is a longing to be free. Free of fear, free of pain, free of death. We long for something absolutely trustworthy. As human beings, with a potent animal nature, we long to be trustworthy ourselves.
What does it mean to trust yourself?
What does it mean to trust life?
What will that give us?
A New Inquiry
In November we began a new inquiry with Gangaji on her monthly webcast: Trusting Yourself, Trusting Life. In an intimate investigation into our expressly human experiences, we can discover the ever-fresh opportunity to live a fulfilled life freely, consciously and responsibly.
"If we try to make “trusting myself” a mental state that is always here, we will fail. That is a beautiful failure, a humbling. If trusting yourself has nothing to do with mental states, then it is the surrender of your mind into the ground of being, regardless of what is being felt, regardless of outcome. Then trusting yourself is actually realizing yourself—surrendering to the truth of yourself."
To trust yourself is to step outside all ideas of how you think you should be and experience yourself as you truly are. To allow yourself to be as you are is the end of the spiritual search, the end of the path. No ledges, no concepts, no holds, just free falling. Finally, who you are is all that is needed, and all that is here. Are you ready to trust that?
Join Gangaji and our global community each month as together we see how to be fully present to living a realized life—a life that includes all and discovers spacious peace everywhere.

Reports from members of With Gangaji
“Thank you all for your participation in the group I was in today, and to all those who called in to speak with Gangaji. The conversations were so deep and beautiful in all aspects. Thank you again Gangaji for your support. I feel, right now, a few minutes after the call, such connection and grace.”
“The last two calls on With Gangaji have been profoundly transformative in my life and living, and I am so deeply moved by all of the sharing on the forum.”
“…a beautiful testimony of the love that unites us all, crosses all boundaries and knows no boundaries. Connecting with others who are as serious about vigilance and courageous enough to dive deeply into the pool of maya, is refreshing, pure, nourishing. This is what Gangaji’s sangha has to offer. If you are willing, right now, to be free, all the way.”
