The Morning Walk
  • This is a silent exercise.
  • Walk in silence. As you walk, look at everything you see as though it doesn't have a name. As you walk, begin to name the thing that your eyes rest upon as if you were God, naming things for the very first time.
  • Use only "first-generation" names.
  • For example: sky, flower, insect, tree, concrete, shoe, woman.
  • As you notice thoughts moving one more generation away (for example, "wonderful morning" or "what a beautiful tree!"), notice, gently stop, be still.
  • Return to simple, uncomplicated one-word, first-generation names: ground, sky, woman….
The morning walk is meditation. It is about noticing.
It is a silent exercise.
...I was visibly and internally changed when I went home that night.

"I am a lover of what is, not because I'm a spiritual person, but because it hurts when I argue with reality. We can know that reality is good just as it is, because when we argue with it, we experience tension and frustration. We don't feel natural or balanced. When we stop opposing reality, action becomes simple, fluid, kind, and fearless."
Byron Katie
