Spirituality and sports

There is nothing like feeling the joy that comes from breaking through old limits or, with the summer Olympics taking place in Atlanta, seeing others perform better than they've done in the past. It's tremendously satisfying to discover for yourself or witness in others new levels of achievement.

Can you remember how you felt in some of your own very best moments and performances? Whether it was hitting a 4-iron stiff at the pin, finishing a run with what feels like more energy than when you started, smoothly moving a soccer ball through opposing players, or hitting a backhand into the opposite corner of the court with power and grace—there is something common to excellent performance.
