                                   Each Step

                          Through the deserted gate,

                          full of ripened leaves,

                          I follow the small path.

                         Earth is as red as a child's lips.


                         I am aware

                         of each step

                         I make.

Walking meditation is meditation while walking . We walk slowly , in a relaxed way, keeping a light smile on our lips. When we practice this way, we feel deeply at ease, and our steps are those of the most secure person on Earth. All ou rsorrows and anxieties drop away, and peace and joy fill our hearts. Anyone can do it. It takes only a little time , a little mindfulness, and a wish to be happy.
