Move Like The Wind

“Sit like a mountain
Stand like a pine tree
Lay down like a bow
Walk like the wind”

Walking tonight in
still evening air
What bliss!
What good fortune!

The Four Postures, sitting, standing, walking and laying down are most often talked about in Buddhism in terms of meditation practice. As deeply significant as formal seated Zazen is (as well as paying attention when standing, walking and laying down), we need not limit ourselves. There is after all also bending, twisting, standing up and sitting down, turning and all the other complex movements we can sit still within….right? And move like the wind.

Thanks for the quote K.
