Can you look at the dirt and know which direction you need to go? Then you might be a monk. Monks have amazing skills like that. And I'm sure you've seen monks wandering around in lots of media. They don't need maps or smartphones. They just look at the dirt and let the earth guide them to where they need to be.
You want to know the monk's trick so you hide behind him for a while as he walks. Finally the monk stops, looks around, takes out a bowling (ぼう) ball and starts bowling in the dirt. The bowling ball rolls off, the monk follows it, and then heads off in that direction.
