Learning to walk may start with stumbling which is fine and the logical thing to do is to clean out the stumbling from the walk once we are able to.
Start with a partner and a stick. Look forward and up and tense and relax shoulders and hips a few times. Now start walking slowly and your partner which is squatting will place the stick where you naturally intend to land your food and you need to adjust and avoid pressing on the stick in air or stumble using your body movement and avoiding guiding your legs with your eyes alone. It is tempting to lower your eyes and avoid the data your legs are giving you and your narrow vision will relax with continuous breathing and you will learn to pay attention to your hips and feet and walk instead of stumbling. Your partner will be vigil to address your tensions and rigid movement and you work on keeping calm and relaxed. Just walk and avoid fighting or stumbling upon reality. Another way to do this is to walk in a bush with eyes looking forward and up and to let the eyes relax with time and slowly moving to let the feet figure things out for themselves as you learn to do different things with different body parts and to again simply walk without falling and impacting yourself with each step.
