The lowly walk backwards

I have always found it strange that in Scripture, those seeking the Lord travel west, while eastward travel symbolizes rebellion (Nimrod towards Shinar). Yet, we are called to look to the east for the coming of the Son with the dawn.

"And behold, the glory of the God of Israel was coming from the east. And the sound of his coming was like the sound of many waters, and the earth shone with His glory."
~Ezekiel 43:2~

How can this work?

But, is it not a great tradition that before royalty, the lowly walk backwards?
