Illusions - learn to lose them while keeping the ability to trust

‘I’m completely disillusioned!’ How often have I heard people speak these words! They once believed in justice, honesty, friendship and love – and then they were deceived. These deceptions created such havoc in them that they not only lost their illusions but all their faith in people. Yes, so many confuse illusions and faith in this way. It is often useful to lose your illusions, but how can we make human beings understand that to lose faith in life and in people is the real loss? To become morose, shrivelled and withdrawn, to lack enthusiasm for anything… is there any greater loss? In the face of any and all opposition, we must know how to preserve our faith.
