When the bride comes down the aisle, we stand. When an elder comes into the room, we stand. Sometimes we stand before the most important person at dinner sits down.
Standing is a sign of respect, of reverence.
Standing activates our bodies to pay attention to what is before us.
How can we use standing to stand for ourselves? For our principles? To activate our bodies to move out of stagnation?
The first step is not a step at all but it is to stand.
