The Labyrinth Zone

TLS 365 Experience #114
June 22, 2017

The Labyrinth appears to be a tool of at least four dimensions. As we can measure the length, width and where it is not a flat, like in the outdoors, there is often some depth to the experience.

As we walk there is also a sense of energetic movement where the stillness of the labyrinth is interrupted by our movement and we stir up the depth of the labyrinth. I wonder if we measured the energy impact in walking from underneath the impact, what it might read.

When we factor in the element of time from our beginning to end and the liminal space in-between that time, we find our fourth dimension. It is here in this fourth dimension that the magic, meaning and moments of consideration seem to move time differently.

We might actually call this dimension, the Labyrinth Zone.

A Simple Check In

TLS 365 Experience #113
June 21, 2017

I used to walk the labyrinth daily, I did this for years and wasn’t at all sure of why I made a daily commitment of it.  Yet, something about taking a walk somewhere in my day gave me a  reference point for being present to what I was to experience or what I had experienced. Before I went to sleep, I would journal a bit and the experience of the labyrinth always seemed to find its way into the writing, explaining or narrating my day as if had been part of the design.

I am not sure why I stopped walking daily, though know it was a different time when I did. I realized in my regular walking,  I wasn’t able to go to sleep or feel complete in my day until I had a recap of it by walking the labyrinth. It was never an obligation, just something I looked forward to.

Now, I am not so frequent, though do realize that there are times when I just want to regroup and I find myself stopping in the midst of the day to trace a finger labyrinth in the air. Short and sweet it does the job of giving me a moment to check in.

Barefoot Bliss

TLS 365 Experience #112
June 20, 2017

This is the official 1st day of Summer so I walked the labyrinth in my altogether natural state… barefoot. Love to go barefoot, yet our Midwest weather does not always oblige. That is what makes this first day special. The shoes are off and the walk is profoundly satisfying. Each step is truly kissing the Earth in great thanks for warming and accommodating.

A Long Walk

TLS 365 Experience #111
June 19, 2017

The Long Walk It seemed like such a long walk.
I was tired and here to walk the labyrinth with a friend. She asked if I would come with and where I had not walked a labyrinth before, I humored her and came along even though all parts of me longed to be elsewhere.

As I stood by contemplating my turn and waiting for the opening, it seemed like a really long walk that didn’t seem to end anywhere. As my turn came I joined in and stepped into this interesting circle. I looked down mostly to keep my balance and make sure my feet knew where to step and where not too. It became easier when I realized the only thing we had to do was follow the path.  I relaxed and enjoyed the outdoors and soon found my movement lighter and flowing and before long I had reached the center. Not long at all.

Years later I reflect back on that first long walk and my initial interpretation. Where I was resistance, the labyrinth’s turns and patterns relaxed and invited. What seemed so long so many years ago now seems so short… Am I done already?

Walking with Our Fathers

TLS 365 Experience #110
June 18, 2017
Labyrinth HandThe labyrinth is often called a feminine instrument as it relates to the lunar calendar and the Earth energies, which we know as Mother Earth. It may be what draws so many more women to the labyrinth than men, however it is an invitation always for everyone.

On this day that celebrates the father, the labyrinth is a wonderful tool to invite an honest reflection for father’s worldwide. As the labyrinth can take a point and spiral it inward, giving us different perspective directions to turn into; bringing in the wealth that father’s offer can be a blessing for humanity as we integrate a walk with that reality on this day.

What if on this day, we reflected on the way a father matters, the connection that children of all ages crave with their father and the one that a father really desires with his children. What if in each step we take, we all realize a step we can make to move closer to the father we have known and better wanted to know? What if we understood what it is that they wish? Consider the ways in which we are touched in heart, a physical hug, a pat, or holding a hand. Consider the ways in which we communicate in listening well, speaking what’s true and holding compassion.

May your walk of fathers, be one that changes your world.

A Labyrinth’s Shadow

TLS 365 Experience #109
June 17, 2017

The Shadow on the Labyrinth

There is a shadow on the labyrinth.

Leaving a long imprint of the idea and enthusiasm.
Outlining the builders and those adding input in its design.
Reflecting its greater purpose for the community it serves
Casting an impression by those who walk it.
Touching the hearts of those who share it
Integrating with nature its honest expression
holding space for the footsteps of the past, present and future.

There is a shadow on the Labyrinth
that tells a great story.

A Path of Metaphor

TLS 365 Experience #108
June 16, 2017

Metaphors become simple realizations on the labyrinth.

The walk of the labyrinth offers awareness with a  glimpse of perspective, and as we continue on each step has a way of bearing proof and an easier acceptance. We can’t really hide from ourselves on the labyrinth, our truth has a way of showing up. In the metaphor, however the truth becomes a gentle suggestion and the path provides time and reinforced direction to comprehend and appreciate.

Where people aren’t always able to tell us the truth, the labyrinth has the metaphor that helps us to be grateful for it.

Grandma’s Walk

TLS 365 Experience #107
June 15, 2017

Yellow Rose Labyrinth for Grandma's 99th BirthdayToday is Grandma’s birthday.

She would have been 99 years old and while she wouldn’t have liked the old part, the 99 years would have impressed her.

I walked on this day with Grandma, mindful of yellow roses and a sweet feeling that she seemed to share without even knowing it. At first I felt alone, though soon knew she was there walking along side me, smiling. She holds my hand and my heart and while I seem to wonder about her and miss her at other times, today I know today she is my heart and mind.

I just wanted to walk and honor what she meant to me and somehow what was heavy on my heart infused unexpected emotion in the winding of the paths.  With Grandma in mind, the sudden comfort and outpouring of love was like a blanket that held me in the moment. Somehow it came and passed quickly, and curiously helped me see the next step in many ways.

I wanted to walk for her, and she ended up walking for me. Isn’t that just like a Grandma!  I think when we remember, honor and love, loved ones are always with us to give something and open to receive what we offer.

True Learning

TLS 365 Experience #106
June 14, 2017

My education comes when I share. I may begin sharing about the labyrinth with groups and organizations and even offering some innovative ideas in my walks, though the true learning comes in observing the interactions of people with the labyrinth and each other. It is in what they share that my education always improves.

Then, appreciation raises considerably.
