Hiking as a Practice of the Moment

Hiking aids us to let go and be free. 

It has a beginning and an end. When embarking the trail, one may ease into the moment at hand knowing the end will come. There's no need to worry or draw out diverging thoughts, for this is a time for clarity. With every step, one can be open to the experience around, taking things as they come into our view. 

The experience we immerse ourselves into becomes an engagement with the basic nature of all things. We see the world with fresh eyes in mindfulness, with no projection. It's all a process of intaking the new that we may later use to fuel our fire.

In this new cycle, we recharge our perspective on what's important. We may finally disband all the pressure built up by which has lingered in our thoughts, and incorporate the spark of novelty with our redeveloped self. By cleansing our mind, we become free with no constraints, and nature becomes our gateway to transformation.
