I think this is a beautiful quote:

The Spiritual Acrobat

You are like a novice acrobat who is about to jump for the first time from a high platform into the air with a trampoline underneath.

You know that nothing bad can happen to you and still you are afraid.

Only when you gain true and complete trust in the trampoline, you will be able to surrender and jump.

-- Riktam Kantu

A good start

A good start to cultivate trust in the trampoline is to be aware of the tremendous trust you instinctively have in the high platform you are currently standing on. Inquire this trust.
