C. S. Lewis is said to have walked every day, rain or shine, because walking fueled his creativity. There is much research to back this up–walking is an important human practice, and as such it is an important spiritual one. Today go for a walk with no destination in mind. Simply wander and pray that God will lead you, even if the only place you arrive is at yourself.
