Do you think it's possible to have experiences you would normally associate with meditation while trekking? I don't mean to a known buddhist or spiritual power centre (although just because a place isn't known as such doesn't mean it isn't one). It seems like if you went on a long trek, say five days or more, that you could reach the kind of states of mind that you reach on a meditation retreat. I have heard of people having these kinds of experiences. What do you think or know, or what have you experienced?
Unless the inner forces of negative emotions are conquered
Strife with outer enemies will never end.
