Walking Practice

People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle.
But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water
or in thin air,
but to walk on earth.

Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize:
a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves,
the black, curious eyes of a child
-- our own two eyes.

All is a miracle.

- Thich Nhat Hanh
