“I have arrived. I am home. In the here. In the now. I am solid. I am free. In the ultimate I dwell.”
Four lines guiding us in our practice of walking meditation. Let us practice together as a Sangha, as a community.
Let us flow like a river, generating peace with every step we make. There is no walk for peace; peace is the walk. By walking, we generate peace within our body, our consciousness. We embrace and heal the pain, the sorrow, the fear in us, and that is the ground for helping peace to be a reality in the world. Let us sing these lines together in order to help memorize the four lines of the song: “I have arrived. I am home. In the here and in the now. I am solid. I am free. In the ultimate I dwell.”
Let us walk together and let us generate the energy of peace and happiness and joy. Let us transform this place and this time into the kingdom of God, into the pure land of the Buddha. This is possible. The collective energy of mindfulness will be generated and penetrate into every one of us for our transformation and healing. Happy walking for everyone.
