Sanpo- The Art of Walking


Does anyone realize the beauty of walking around? Having the ability to just get up and go? The art of leisurely setting life to your pace and taking it all in? The Chinese once held leisurely walking aligning your chi with the world around you as an art. The Japanese inherited the art from their elder and made it a way of life. Sanpo is an art that I’m currently embracing. It is the practice of setting life to your pace and walking along your path. No two people will practice the art the same way, but the result is the same. A good day of Sanpo can lead to unbridled clarity of one’s life.

Do yourself a favor and Sanpo. Walk with yourself. No phone, no watch, no iPod, just you and the world. I’m sure the time that it eats in your busy schedule would not be spent on anything more enlightening.
