"When I Walk, I Walk"

More powerful than many Suttas I have read, easiest to recall when most needed, is one simple line from Sylvia Boorstein's grandfather, as related in her book, It's Easier Than You Think. That line is:

"When I walk, I walk"

Today, biking to Printers Inc, our neighborhood coffee shop, to meet my daughter, the words came up just like that. "When I walk, I walk" meaning of course, "When I bike, I bike".

Paying attention to the road ahead, and the burn in my thighs from pedaling hard, and keeping my back aligned, and feeling the oh! so slight brush of the air against my face. Just biking . . .
