I read this: “When we walk like (we are running), we print anxiety and sorrow on the earth. We have to walk in a way that we only print peace and serenity on the earth… Be aware of the contact between your feet and the earth. Walk as if you are kissing the earth with your feet.(Thich Nhat Hanh)”
Then I read this: “To praise God is to be purified: when purity arrives, corruption quickly leaves. Opposites flee from each other: night flees when the light dawns. When the pure Name enters the mouth, neither impurity nor sorrow remain. Your awe and love are the rope to catch My gift: beneath every “O Lord” of yours is many a “Here am I” from Me. (Rumi’s Mathnawi III, 186-188; 197)”
Then I have this visual in my heart: That life is a gentle, constant, intimate dialogue with God, in every single step, in every single breath.
So listen attentively. And walk as if you are kissing the earth with your feet.
Thank you. So very much.
