Walking Meditation

My son woke extra early this morning. So we went out for a walk and watched the sun lighten the sky.

“Wherever we walk, we can practice meditation. This means that we know that we are walking. We walk just for walking. We walk with freedom and solidity, no longer in a hurry. We are present with each step.

Walking in this way should not be a privilege. We should be able to do it in every moment. Look around and see how vast life is, the trees, the white clouds, the limitless sky. Listen to the birds. Feel the fresh breeze. Life is all around and we are alive and healthy and capable of walking in peace.

As we walk, imprint our gratitude and our love on the earth.”

~ Thich Nhat Hanh
