Walking meditation heals

Meditation is not only sitting. Any movements of life – include walking – can become meditation, as long as there’s mindfulness there.

Since intention determines direction, it’s very importan to whisper to yourself like this before meditation: “For the sake of perfecting the quality of my love…”.

In case of walking meditation, it’s recommended to do it in quite place where the environment give birth to countless gratitudes.

Walk slower than daily normal steps. There are some approaches which are available. Move feet as slow as possible, whisper to yourself: “Lift, move, put it back”.

That mantra is like anchor which connecting mind to the beauty of present moment. Another approach, whenever you move feet, simply recognize that you’re moving your feet.

The following approach, contemplate deeply the impermanence nature of everything. Exactly the same as the movement of feet.

As the right step appear, the left step disappear. The same thing happen to sad-glad, foe-friend, pain-pleasure, sorrow-joy, failure-success.

As soon as you embody the impermanence nature of everything, the rigid dualistic mind no longer grip you. The mind begin to flow.

As a result, you’ll experience less energy drain which comes from the negative and critical mind. It opens the gate of healing and peace as well.

The simplest and the deepest approach of walking meditation is feeling the gap. Feel the gap between two movements of your feet.

If there are sounds, feel the gap between two sounds. If some memories visit you, feel the gap between two memories. Gap is a very powerful medicine.

It’s like space that makes everything disappear. Pain, bad memory, discomfort, bad mood are all disapeaar in the gap. It left nothing except the energy of healing and peace.

May all beings are happy. May all beings are happy. May all beings are happy. May all beings are happy. May all beings are happy.

About the author

H.H. Guruji Gede Prama

Gede Prama started his spiritual journey through a dialogue with his symbolic Guru in a village at the north of Bali. The journey is then being enriched with his experiences of studying abroad, his meetings with the world greatest spiritual Gurus: His Holiness Dalai Lama, The Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as Professor Karen Armstrong; and also being deepened by his intense meditation practices.

Despite the fact that he was once a CEO of a large corporation with thousand of employees, and was traveling abroad frequently for the purpose of teaching, yet, being deeply moved by the Bali bombing incident in 2002, he then decided to leave everything and went back to his home island.
He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
