The trader, a warrior, gets on to his battlefield, the markets, everyday. But does not always have faith.
There are moments when he believes in absolutely nothing, when his heart is filled with unconvincing feelings and utter disbelief. And he asks his heart: 'Is all this effort really worth it?'
But his heart remains silent. And the warrior has to decide for himself.
Then he looks for an example. And he remembers that Jesus went through
something similar in order fully to inhabit the human condition. Obviously that was so selfless. 'Remove this cup from me,' said Jesus. He too lost heart and courage, but he did not stop.
The warrior continues despite his lack of faith. He goes forward and, in the end, faith returns.
