Practice requires and cultivates a profound trust in ourselves. Delusion lies in a sense of separation, a sense that something is hidden from us. Yet these feelings are what we call delusion. We need to cast off all our opinions, judgments, arrogance and self-doubt, and stop comparing ourselves with others. In this way, there are no hindrances. We can just be ourselves and trust profoundly in our Buddha nature.
