About Us

blog button 05- 200pxForwardWalking.com is an inspirational blog of hope and encouragement for anyone seeking to move forward in life. Our contributors are an eclectic group of men and women from all around the world that have banded together to walk “the path of WE.” Our mission is to publish original, inspirational, and relevant content that helps individuals in the Forward Walking of their lives.

This blog takes its name from The Seven Paths, a book by the ANASAZI Foundation. As explained in the Foreword by Good Buffalo Eagle, “life is a walking, a journey,” and as such, “there are two ways to walk” upon the earth. “[W]e can choose to walk forward or we can choose to walk backward.”

Forward Walking choices are rewarded with consequences that light the way to peace, happiness, joy, comfort, knowledge, and wisdom. Backward Walking choices bring to the Two-Legged beings consequences of misery, despair, and darkness” (The Seven Paths, xi).

The success of our journey in the wilderness of the world depends on whether our hearts walk forward—towards people—instead of backward, away from them (The Seven Paths, 10).

Our life is a journey—a walking—through this maze of life. Naturally, we will make mistakes, feel lost, and experience setbacks as we try to reach the center (the achievement of our hopes and dreams). Whenever we make a mistake or experience disappointment, we must remember that this life is a walking. The quickest way to to the fulfillment of our dreams is to right ourselves, and keep moving forward. 

May this blog help you in your forward walking.
