A student once asked his Zen master, “How can I cultivate trust in the journey as a Spiritual Athlete?” The master replied, “Imagine a person sailing across the ocean. They cannot control the wind or the waves, but they trust in their boat and their skills to navigate the journey. In the same way, the Spiritual Athlete cultivates trust in the journey by trusting in themselves and the universe to guide them on their path. By letting go of the need for control and surrendering to the journey, they can cultivate a deeper sense of trust and connection with themselves and the universe.”
