Walk not the usual way

Have you ever tried walking with your eyes closed? Perhaps on an wide empty path, where there is no real danger of bumping into anyone or anything?
£ The first 5-6 steps are pretty easy – the mind remembers what lay ahead and believes that it is on track.
$ The next 10 steps or so are the hardest – the mind is no longer sure of your progress. It feels that you are about to hit something any moment. It is worried that you have strayed off the path and are treading where you are not supposed to.
€ The steps after that are easier again – the mind gives up on bothering about where you might be headed and just relaxes to enjoy the experience.
Do we sleep walk through life?

whoa .. too fast u r :P u might be sleepwalking through work, but you are pretty much wide-awake-racing through the interwebs :P

getting philosophical: i meant sleep walking as in walking with eyes closed (which is wrong biologically, I know :P) - does our attitude about things in life change similar to how the mind acts when it is walking blind? :P
