INTUITIVE WALKING

Intuition largely expresses itself through our body…and when our body is flowing in rhythm it is open to intuitive thinking….this is most clearly seen in dance when our body is flowing with music….casual walking is a form of dance but instead we are in step with our own body and the rhythm of the environment….it can bring about a feeling of interrelatedness common to the intuitive experience…our thought process joins the movement and can offer us a creative and intuitive experience…all of which occurs while we are in the “here and now”.

It is not talking but walking that will bring us to heaven. – Matthew Henry

All truly great thoughts are conceived by walking. – Friedrich Nietzsche

I only went out for a walk, and finally concluded
to stay out until sundown:
for going out, I found, was really going in.” – John Muir

The rhythm of walking generates a kind of rhythm of thinking,and the passage through a landscape echoes or stimulates the passage through a series of thoughts. This creates an odd consonance between internal and external passage, one that suggests that the mind is also a landscape of sorts and that walking is one way to traverse it. A new thought often seems like a feature of the landscape that was there all along, as though thinking were traveling rather than making.” – Rebecca Solnit

If you are seeking creative ideas, go out walking. Angels whisper to a man when he goes for a walk. – Raymond Inmon
