“And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair”
- Kahlil Gibran
"Ground the Feet"
When we listen attentively and bow each lesson (label), we can go anywhere our feet lead us…
Matthew Brady, the Father of Photojournalism, hit his stride in the 19th century and proclaimed: “A spirit in my feet said go, and I went”. Similarly, the Observologist, the Mother of Mindfulness, feels the foot upon the earth - walks the path, narrates the journey -- while staying abreast of the ever changing scenery all around.
Many cultures believe that the foot represents the soul. As we observe the details in our daily lives, we become more mindful of how we walk our talk. This expansion of consciousness enriches our journey and we travel our path with more confidence and clarity. With thousands of nerve endings connecting in networks to other parts of the body, our feet are the very foundation of our stance.
To set foot upon new horizons, first, we must feel grounded and safe on the shore. Just like the roots of a tree reaching down and wide to imbibe nourishment, our feet and the earth are long standing partners. In this symbiotic light, footprints mark our trails every step of the way– each one an echo crystallizing, a. u.nique m.oment (AUM), I.n t.ime (It).
