Walking in wilderness...

Surely the Lord your God has blessed
You in all your ways; He knows
your walking through this great wilderness.
    Tolkien said that 'Not all who wander are lost'.  Too often we walk and see nothing because we are mentally distracted and are oblivious to our surroundings.  Many people use the gym or engage in aerobics or other forms of workout without caring for their psyche or their spiritual well-being.
     To walk meditatively is to enjoy the environment through its colour, texture, sound, design and apparent beauty as well as through its inner sound, silent music, and immediate presence.
 My beloved is the mountains, the solitary wooded valleys, strange islands. . .silent music.
