I have two doctors, my left leg and my right.- G. M. Trevelyan
of us have spent our lives living 'outside' of our real nature. We often
have confused the desires of our body, ego and intellect, with the divine
wishes of our soul.
If you just reflect upon for a moment the way we habitually walk anywhere currently, you might be aware that most of the time we are thinking about another place we want to be, or things we have to do, or any number of extraneous thoughts. We rarely are conscious of the present moment, and our heart and soul in the process of walking.
Meditation, our spiritual life, seeks to redress the balance. It seeks to deepen every moment of our lives with the richness of experience of our own heart.
In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks - John Muir
This is really it in a nutshell, to live our spiritual lives most effectively and efficiently we simply need to live our lives from our heart, we simply need to get closer to meditating 24 hours a day
It is not talking but walking that will bring us to heaven - Matthew Henry
This doesn't mean we are in a
trance state the whole time, barely conscious of the outside world. Meditation is not an escape, it is a recentering.
It means that we become more and more conscious of the heaven of
the heart that
we are in all the time (without knowing it) and less conscious of the hell
(of our unruly minds) that we can so easily
A walking meditation is where we begin.
If you want to know if your brain is flabby, feel your legs. - Bruce Barton
