In Between the Lines

TLS 365 Experience #61
April 30, 2017

If you have walked a labyrinth… you have a story to share.

Whether is yielded an insight or an epiphany, or it seemed to give nothing more, each walk is an experience.  Those that are enriched in between the lines, are more so when they tell the tale as in the telling the expression is interpreted and the witness is educated and touched.

It is the double meaning of the meaning when we care to share the stories in between the lines.

An Arbor Walk

TLS 365 Experience #59
April 28, 2017

In honor of Arbor Day…

A walk in nature often finds us in the company of trees.

We can support Arbor Day by planting, nurturing, or celebrating trees on our walk today.
One could say that planting and nurturing trees is quite similar to planting labyrinths. We have intent and hopefully seed the idea into a grounding environment, nourish it and provide essential care as it takes root building one ring at a time and then walk inside the shade of its comforting reach.

A walk with natural appreciation in the forest of opportunity

Making Space for Everyone’s Place

TLS 365 Experience #58
April 27, 2017

It is important to allow room for sharing experiences of the labyrinth.

When working with a group, allow people to share their experiences with the group. Provide a journal for people to write in. They can also read what other people wrote about their own experiences. It seems that people are more willing to own their own experiences and celebrate them if others share theirs.

It makes them feel like they are part of a community of like-minded souls and not “different.”

The Essential Labyrinth

TLS 365 Experience #57
April 26, 2017

In researching information for my book on labyrinths, I needed to address what made the symbol so enduring, so fascinating, throughout thousands, if not tens of thousands of years of human experience.

To me, the labyrinth touches on something essential to humankind; a connection with a spiritual, healing power that has been a deep-seated metaphor as long as there have been humans who have recognized illness in a wide variety of ways, and found healing potential in community support.

It is a fundamental longing for ‘health’ and ‘balance’ that requires sharing and participation.

Dog Gone Labyrinths

TLS 365 Experience #56
April 25, 2017

 

In keeping with the spirit of the heart and the love of the labyrinth, I happened across a dog today on my walk.  As I came around a contemplative corner of my walk, onto the scene bounded a Labrador Retriever full of playfulness. Leave it to a dog to be mindful of what is necessary in this life.

He bounced around literally, maneuvered his way along the path as if he was actually following it and just when I began to think so, off he would romp across the paths to have a sniff in the center.

Along came the owner shortly after with a bit of frenzy in finding the dog and worry that he was a disruption. Sometimes we do need a bit of disruption as it helps us to see the path we are actually on. Today had no particular purpose, it was more of an ambling of curiosity to see what would show up…and what love to find a dog!

Dogs are those happy little tail wagging messengers in our day reminding us to play, take a walk once in awhile, and when you are done picking that bone…bury it deep and let go of it. They are life companions that speak to our soul and uplift our hearts with levity and loyalty.  In the eyes of a Dog…you are God and isn’t that a happy little reflection of language…DOG – GOD.

I did my heart exercise today in playing with this dog on the labyrinth in a physical way and in a heart happy emotional exercise as well. The natural world of animals can find an easy way into an open heart and really leave pause for reflection… in this case paws.  When the owner finally found us and all was said and done, she joined us realizing that the dog found its way with ease, made the course corrections that were natural and really never got lost. This of course was to me was no simple message and no simple Labrador  this was a Labyrdog... and it was chocolate!

The gifts of heart are everywhere when you look for them. Glad I looked today!

Time on the Labyrinth

TLS 365 Experience #55
April 24, 2017

Finding a journal from five years ago on this day I felt both behind and looking for a center point then. Looking at what I wrote, how funny it was to be feeling something similar for today. Lots of distractions calling!

Then, the week had been full of distraction where even the daily labyrinth walk met something new or different redirecting the path. I seemed to be so distracted from getting to the point and the same was true on the labyrinth each day during that week.

Strangely familiar distraction has also been part of this week, though now it seems just a part of the conversation, asked and answered in step. Today I realize a different way to relax, listen and am often amused at the simplicity or the reality of the synchronicity between the walk and the question at hand. The message from five years ago resurfaced a pattern of allowing that today I am just grateful in knowing. Better, as on the labyrinth, the message doesn’t change, we do.

The Home in the Labyrinth

TLS 365 Experience #54
April 23, 2017

With a new month’s beginning we came into the showers of April, and with a fresh cleanse of rain to wash away any of the left over Winter, the Spring’s washing allows for a soul stepping smartness into the month well.

Now as we prepare to depart the month the wise soles of our footsteps realize several rinsings were necessary and have bidden time in being mindful of the slippery and the pools of depth not always visible.

This month may well be our ritualistic cleanse seasonally and as we stride through time in the journey of a dozen pathways, each offers a reflection of the winter as we travel inward to gain the knowledge and a purpose for the season ahead as we travel again outward. It is a coming home and leaving again being refreshed and renewed in seasonal strength for what lies ahead.

A Walk on Earth

TLS 365 Experience #53
April 22, 2017


On this day of celebrating Earth Day, the Red Rock Canyons of Nevada encircle the circle of the labyrinth, keeping it as a refuge to those who come upon it, those who use it for days like these and those who want to commune with the natural essence of the labyrinth in a most natural setting.

It is a contemporary design with two spirals, and what is very Earth-like about this labyrinth, is that the ending and beginning points tend to shift from time to time as a result of how it is used by human kind.

A fitting labyrinth with a fitting message for Earth day about appreciation and respect for Earth’s use while we are here.

Build Peace

TLS 365 Experience #52
April 21, 2017

If you walk the labyrinth,
You have a story.
If you share the story,
you enrich others.
If you enrich others,
they appreciate.
If they appreciate,
We elevate the feeling of appreciation in the world.

Walk • Care • Share
