How should I walk to see the present, mindfully?

At the beach a few days ago I did a walking meditation, noticing that while walking forward  my eyes are seeing where I will be going in the future. I then tried mindfully walking backwards noticing that while walking backwards my eyes are seeing where I was in the past. My question is how, then, should I walk to see the present, mindfully?

Please, post your answers!

  1. Walk with emptiness, abandoning the hope of fruition, noticing mindfully and then letting go of the ideas of past, present, and future. Or maybe just stand still until something like enlightenment happens.

  2. Walk with your eyes closed, so you see the emptiness of all notions- past, present, future. Extra bonus accidental enlightenment: If you bump into something or somebody while walking with the eyes closed, that will jolt you into the present moment, at least for a moment:)

  3. Yes, to the basics of human experience, contact with the environment, awareness of sensation, thanks so much for this Michelle.
