Counting Down to Day 33 (Day 96 out of 129) of the Middle Path Makeover – Kinhin, A Walking Meditation

Day by day, one in front of the other, heel then toes.
We place the foot on the floor in front of us, then we shift our weight. One step. We place the other then we shift our weight. Two steps.
Feel the heel sink into the earth; feel the toes follow the heel’s lead.
Knees relaxed and spine straight we walk in meditation. We are awake and aware of our bodies. Aware of our surroundings. Aware of our breathing.
We think: Just walking, just thinking, just breathing.
Just Kinhin.
