Walking Meditation Lyrics

Walking Meditation Gatha

The mind can go in a thousand directions.

But on this lovely path,
I walk in peace.

With each step a gentle breeze blows.

With each step a flower blooms.

From Songs of Practice by the Deer Park Monastery, practicing in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh

For this New Year, this little song is a reminder about how each step can be a step of peace.

With each step, we can feel into our surroundings and see things as they are, which just might include a gentle breeze.

With that noticing, the seeds of growth and peace within us and in those around us are watered, helping them bloom into a flower of peace and happiness.
