The Importance Of Having No Shoes Available While Being Barefoot
When I started to walk barefoot in public more than twenty years ago, I usually had shoes in my backpack. Barefoot specialists still recommend beginners to do this. I think it's wrong. If you always cling to the life ring, you'll never learn to swim. If shoes are available anytime and anywhere, you'll never go barefoot liberated and with pleasure. To achieve this, you must feel: there are no shoes, neither on my feet nor in my backpack. So I have to go barefoot, whatever happens, even if my feet come in touch with very rough and dirty surfaces, regardless of the situation or the people I meet, even if I am suddenly ashamed of being barefoot in the public. Do not worry! Perhaps this is terrible at first, but then it's wonderful! If you endure the first strangeness of walking barefoot, you never want to stop again. You long to go barefoot all year round, without any exception. You're gonna be sure that you're able to go barefoot always and everywhere, and you're right. If you go barefoot constantly and toughen your soles, they will enjoy every surface, even rough gravel and hot asphalt. If you're proud of your healthy, bare feet and if you develop self-confidence, you'll enjoy going barefoot in every situation, even while shopping, visiting the doctor, in court, in a museum or in churches. I enjoy this for more than twenty years now and look forward to more new places and situations to go barefoot. So, you see how important it is to have no shoes available while being barefoot.
