Bonafide Fun

TLS 365 Experience #245
October 31, 2017

The Labyrinth of Chicken Bones, Cobwebs and things that Go Bump in the night... LAT2010It’s always fun to work with kids, they have wonderful imaginations and I often find their creativity inspiring as it is playful, limitless and speaks to their truth.  As Halloween approached I asked a teacher to gather chicken bones and secured more at the local butcher shop during the month. Chicken bones tend to be small so work well in the building of labyrinth in pieces. The teacher brought the kids into our nearby center for an afternoon of discovery with the idea of appreciating the imagination and inspiration and in a world that can be unnerving for kids;  finding the fun of tethering on the edge of the unknown.

On dark table tops the illuminated circles brought light to work with as the kids played a game in teams and got to pick out the bones from a bucket as they guessed correctly. We played a variety of games with the bones and part of the fun of the day was in building a labyrinth with them.taking away the myth and the monster to add magic and meaning.

Journey Into You

TLS 365 Experience #244
October 30, 2017

 

Journey into the Center of You LAT2007

Wherever we are in the world, the one place we can always go into to get away from others or out of a discomforting place is within.

For some it is not a known destination or one that may be fully welcoming in the moment, though it is the place where our truth exists. That can be liberating, encouraging and wonderfully reminding of who we are and how we are meant to be useful in the world.

It is a journey to appreciate and love, one step at a time. Know the gifts are both deep and priceless. The labyrinth’s journey unwinds us slowly to discover more in each step and to wind our way around to realizing its center and it is a journey of steps to get there.

Realize a significant prize is in the steps from here to there.

A Symbol of the Journey

TLS 365 Experience #243
October 29, 2017

I love to create unique personal labyrinths for specific purposes, for inner work. When I start a new path that requires me to grow, that will stretch the boundaries of what I had always imagines possible for me, I will sometimes create a special labyrinth for the journey.

It uses unusual materials. It will have symbolic colors and symbols. It will have the vibration of what I want to create on my new path. It will be small enough to seem manageable, as I want my new project to be. As I create the labyrinth, I immerse myself in the energies that will help me with my goal. I let my intentions guide my creation, and when it is finished, it may not really be finished. I can add to it as I walk it during the project, as I receive illuminations or see new patterns and possibilities.

The labyrinth helps me as I walk it on my journey. It flattens what may initially seem like a steep road. I journal, and the ideas keep coming. When I have reached my goal, the labyrinth is now the symbol of the entire journey, and the road I had walked to get there.

Together we built something were there was not.

A Little More Me

TLS 365 Experience #241
October 27, 2017

Every time I walk,more is seen, understood and grown.

There is something infinitely intangible in what is experienced over the liminal threshold of the labyrinth. Each time I become a better person in knowing something else. In the world of making a difference, I do this by just getting better, growing and becoming something of this life that is more fascinating in the process and progress of time.

Messages of Meaning

TLS 365 Experience #239
October 25, 2017

Messages of Meaning... You are an insightful Wonder, thank you for being.... cards and affirmation of labyrinth appreciation... anonymous

 

For years I have made design after design and given them away on cards with affirmative quotes for others.

It is my labyrinth mission and one of great purpose and practice that provides a path to giving.

I receive creativity and more of it when I give. The messages uplift me as I hope they might others in the moment they reach for the card.

Paths of Great and Full

TLS 365 Experience #238
October 24, 2017

I began this walk grateful with the feeling and understanding of gratitude itself. As I turned to walk another pathway I shifted to the gratitude I felt in walking, doing, thinking and being as a person. On the next turn I extended the feeling of gratitude to my family for their contributions to me and the opportunity to give to them. Beyond that the thankfulness poured out to my friends that I had chosen in life and how we served each other in what we became in knowing and being together.

Turning again, those I work with and associate as aquaintences became my focus and how each was a helpful part of the whole.I noted with appreciative awareness how I fit into it and grew in knowing them and they in knowing me. In another shift of direction, those I interacted with on a passing level in my community became a curious as well as thankful gesture. While they are often fleeting moments of exchange, each passes into my life and I into theirs as if to make a moments impression for known and unknow reasons at the time.

Circling to the next path, gratitude lifts to include those in my country who are engaging for the good of our nation and those just trying to understand. Like me, each has a value in what we offer and in this moment I am grateful for this. Finally as I turn onto the last path of this labyrinth a heightened sense of gratitude for those I will never know, breathing out what I breath in and for myself as an unknown in the greater world, I am thankful for our existence and minute traces of movement that matter.

Walking into the center I have become the gratitude in my being and feel its vibration as if speaking clearly to the world. It provides a sense of grace in the steps that follow back home.

The Wisdom of Waiting

TLS 365 Experience #237
October 23, 2017

Our message to the class today was to put something in and take something away.

We demonstrated this balanced equation on the labyrinth by walking in with a problem and returning with a solution. To prove the point we asked for it to be of a personal nature that each could find some element that was the solution or could lead them to one.

As the walk completed our discussion added the value of patience as several had been blank on finding solution, though noted the more peaceful way they felt. We offered a patience meditation and made a writing assignment for the evening.

By the next day everyone had found an answer or element that led them to look in a new direction.  When we teach we discover more than we knew before.

A Closer Walk With She

TLS 365 Experience #236
October 22, 2017

A friend and I took our favorite quotes and authors to the labyrinth.

As we walked we shared the quote or the passage that moved us in the moment, while the other one stopped and listened. We continued on in this way noting the words that filled our ears to our hearts and when we met in the center we spoke of what each message gave us in the telling and how listening to it from a dear friend felt.

Listening is deep love and in this way we opened up channels of ourselves that we didn’t know about each other. Listening to those succinct in the telling held a new meaning and a profound appreciation.
