Topics Include: practising a walking meditation and contemplating the process of meditation in action. Most 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.
