Soren Kierkegaard, a Danish philosopher and theologian of the mid-19th century wrote some of the most interesting and challenging ideas of this time.
He also was dedicated to walking. Simply walking. A simple action that Kierkegaard believed to be the secret to his ability to produce sublime insights into the human existence. He wrote a letter to a lady who was suffering from depression:
“Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: Every day I walk myself into a state
of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it.”
Kierkegaard is just one of many supremely creative people who found walking to be their stimulus to new ideas. From Nietzsche to Hemingway. From Tesla (no, not Elon Musk – Nikola Tesla) to Steve Jobs. Kierkegaard found it so important he walked every day.
Maybe that’s what your world needs – lots of good walks.
P.S. What stillness, peace, and insight might you find on your next walk?
