TLS 365 Experience #68
May 7, 2017
When I moved to a new state, there was much that was new, and orienting to the community was different, job, purpose, home and family situation were all different too. Alone in a new area, how to begin was both an adventure and a bit daunting. Anything was possible, though habits and customs familiar didn’t quite seem to fit into all this newness.
The labyrinth was one thing that had given comfort in the past, so seeking out a community of other enthusiasts did not at first yield any prospects of people, though it turned up the labyrinths present. I began visiting the different sites, experiencing and communicating with the people who showed up. Soon, I found in the walking a sense of purpose unfolding, a sense of understanding this community and a sense of home slowly emerging. People became interested in what I had to share and made welcome space.
From those beginnings, others in like mind connected and my sense of newness began to fade. It was as if my pathways were filling with purpose and people and at the center was this labyrinth that had gracefully reminded me how to walk again and find my footing in a new world.
