Trust is the nature of personal practice and of Sangha relations. It is based on the words of Hakuin Zenji, in effect, that all of us are trustworthy. As best we can, we live up to the trust of others and to our trust in ourselves.

Disorganization comes when we stop believing in our own Buddha nature, our own trustworthiness, and in the Buddha nature of others. That's when we start using excuses. That's when gossip and malicious criticisms enter in.

Practice trust.
