~ Walking Meditation

~ just a human being walking on the earth slowly, quickly, or as you wish.

~ as fluid as the movements
~ not anticipating, expecting, or fixating, holding onto sensations.
~ not fighting against thoughts, images, feelings.
~ curious about what is called “walking”
~ all the many muscles, movements, textures...

~ one step at a time, as if you have all the time in the world as if being moved by the earth.

~ delicately connected to feet, legs, belly, or whole body while also open, spacious, allowing sounds, sights, mind to happen in and around.

~ nature happening “inside” as well as “outside”.

Direct experience is what leads to freedom. The walking practice is a strong support for that freedom.
