Love Review

Day 59: February 28
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love


Enjoy the last day of this short month as a Love Review. We have had four solid weeks of looking through the lens of love to explore the qualities at the heart of honesty. When we love what we do, what we have and what we are, we do more…and in better ways. That is what we are after in this quest of discovery.

This month in looking for the heart, I found it in design. Creating a number of different designs with different materials reminded me of the vivid imagination and spontaneous creativity that seems to frequent the days that hold the most fascination, feel good and inspire a natural curiosity. When in this place, it is at the heart and core of what I love to be and do. In the two points of focus for this month, this combined both in the synchronicity of mind and design in looking for the heart and feeling the essence of love.

Today’s walk was a love walk, full of gratitude and realization of what the past 28 days has offered. As you take to your path today, consider how this daily focus has opened or awaken some abilities and what type of hearts synchronistically opened or showed up for you.

—————————————————————————————

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 60th day…
Walk in review of your month’s discoveries and explorations, becoming aware of the result of the fullness of your daily experience.

————————————————————————————–


February’s Focus

As it is the second month of the year, enjoy two opportunities… discovery and realization.

  1. Discover your Love capacity:
    This month’s 28 days will focus on how we are loving the moments we are creating. Learning to be “in love” with our focus, it expands who we are beyond the partnered relational aspects and into the focus of loving what we offer the world, who we are in community, relating at a higher level to everything and everyone; and most significantly,  elevating the relationship we have with ourselves. Prepare for a wonderful experience of exercising the power of love with the freedom of honesty to realize a greater look at possibilities and potential n a delightful way. Discover how capable you are!

2. Realize synchronous evidence:
Inspired by the variety of heart shaped labyrinths, this month capture your experiences with images of the heart. Be on the look out for where the synchronicity of the moments where your heart is in focus and then look around to see where you can find the shape of a heart in symbol. Your awareness will expand and you just might be surprised to find that when we look with an open heart, we can find it in reference near by. It does require a bit of imagination, though the findings are wonderfully worth it. Share all the heart shaped labyrinth images you find with images, links or comments and I will be happy to post the images and moments.

Imagination

Day 58: February 27
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

Describing the simple nature of the labyrinth today to a few interested souls, it was a lesson in conveyance. Some had ideas of the maze, others shared they already knew as they had participated in a walk in the past, while others found this new information. It was a discussion without visual imagery available and in this, picking up on the idea of imagination became a wonderful way to open the doors a little wider with possibility. Having a number of different ways to describe its use and purpose, depending upon the audience, there is always a general communication that everyone can relate to well.

Asking them to close their eyes, an impromptu labyrinth meditation came to mind where visualizations could become volumous and what might be received in the experience could be significant to each in their own way. Using the breath as the path, the labyrinth had opportunity to enter the individual in a virtual walk of imagination. Each had a different connection and a unique response to share as we completed. It just may have been the most honest labyrinth walk ever created and one that allowed for the individual to experience as their own personal pilgrimage in a heartfelt manner.

—————————————————————————————

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 59th day…
Walk the labyrinth of your own mind tracing the steps and relating to it differently with imagination as a guide.

Within the Losss

Day 57: February 26
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

 

Hearing of a loss today was a heartfelt reminder of what was valued, appreciated and engaged. In this gift of life, nothing is guaranteed or deserved. There is nothing we are entitled to or any real expectation until we assign it and when we have opportunity for such a life review, the grateful moments appreciate lost life much more than any thing not completed or accomplished. Those appreciates convey the true worth of life, always in what was accomplished, and more importantly how we love and were loved.  If we have contributed well, we might see evidence of why the world was better with us in it, though for many, that wisdom is more readily found in the people left behind with their memories and feelings. That is what is so important about gatherings of goodbye, it is the opportunity to share, speak and survey the many perspectives of a life.

Today I walked on the loss, the life and the contributions that were honest and heartfelt over the years and by the comments of others, grew a little more in the understanding of this individual who graced lives in her own way. Urgency arises when we see a life that had many years left to explore, though at the core of it all, each comes into this life for a prescribed amount of time to explore and expand in their own unique timeframe and style. Accepting and appreciating are the two things that might be most heartfelt and true. It is what I walked away with and what grew in perspective for the remainder of the day.


A suggestion to walk with:

On this 58th day…
Walk in your own appreciations and acceptances made, noting the truth and expansive nature in doing so.

Heart Within Heart

Day 57: February 25
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

A new friend and I have realized our similarities in the area of caregiving. She lovingly cares for her husband who’s care requires regular attention from a paralyzing stroke as I care for an aging mother with mobility issues and cancer. Each of us has worked in the field of relationships, though nothing really prepares one for the relationship of caregiving and the new role of love that is discovered. It is one that in its experience allows us to grow richer, especially during the times when we might rather not.  We encounter things we would have never considered and open ourselves to both the highs and lows of wellness. The vast range of emotion and experience fall between the moments of patience and urgency and at the end of the day, we both agree that we are better off having been a part. It is a blessing to both know, assist and receive from another who walks a similar path.

We had opportunity to spend a little time together today and walked the path of a nearby labyrinth. She was familiar though appreciated the new perspectives in walking and how it might relate to caregiving for both our patients and our patience in the walks of love we could create. It’s a lot like the labyrinth as when we walk in the reflection, we see more of what is and less of what isn’t. It is the heart within the heart that reveals itself as we journey and in that, there is a lot to consider, appreciate and love. Designing this labyrinth today took on this theme of the hearts within the heart that are realized with perspective.

—————————————————————————————

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 57th day…
Walk within your own heart today, step in and keep going and growing.

Purpose Love

Day 57: February 24
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

Each day offers a new opportunity on the labyrinth and in the suggestions for discovery of the honesty found in our walks, we already know that honesty is present in a walk. What is not always understood is the volume of potential that also exists in a variety of ways. As potential is limitless field of broad perspective, it will never be fully utilized in our lifetime, though tapping into more of what we have been using, that is our quest.

That is what is the honest to goodness truth for us to discover and while it might lay obvious before us on the path, recognizing, learning more and applying it is our great opportunity to find the heart in what we do and honestly love it too.

Today was a simple honest walk of looking into what I do and how I love it immensely. In all honesty it encourages, elevates and inspires others to wake up and take action, improving life quality. For me however it is a contribution to my own creativity and with each offering an introspective into my own understanding and relationship with the potential of the world. The more that is offered, the more the capacity expands and the more love grows. Barbara Marx Hubbard said it eloquently, “When a woman has found her purpose, it is as if she is in love.” There is a heart with spirit that finds its way into the everyday and I wonder that it is not the same experience with men too?

Be blessed in your discoveries today whether sorting out a few things or embracing something new or challenging. Find the arrow that hits your target and the love in it and observe the change in your walk.

—————————————————————————————

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 57th day…
Walk as you do when you are in love. Observe the changes when you walk in love with an idea or purpose instead of a person.

From Pain to Potential

Day 56: February 24
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

The awareness of honesty can come in many forms. To hear young children angrily speaking up and out because they don’t believe that the adults they relied upon are able to create the environment that will keep them safe, is an extreme form of an honest outburst  for basic survival.

They call out from a very raw sense of moral outrage and they speak an undeniable truth that acts as a catalyst to create the change that is beyond necessary. We are right there with them sincerely encouraged in the growth they demonstrate to stand and speak, while at the same time honestly knowing to our core any role of hesitation that makes them so right.

They are able to see simple cause and effect, where we have followed years of conditioned response in policy and procedure. We both react in the paradigm of which we understand in honest and true response, though it is their clear tender voice that resonates loudly the importance and immediacy of change. Their rising is what this year long experience calls upon us to explore.

When we get to the truth and cut through the conditioning,  the vast reservoir of what we are capable of  is expansive. Years of conditioning are not undone in a singular motion, even with the very real stark reminder of the inconsolable cost of a very precious youthful human life, because we have known it too many times.  Stand to understand their simple message. Rise to an actionable step to care, connect or collaborate and you will know one small true step beyond hesitancy.

The honest part of our being brings a labyrinth of understanding. We move into awareness and turn the corner moving into a deeper appreciation of that awareness. As we move more consistently into this awareness, we seek out more education to know and grow with each inward turn spiraling to a point of when we understand on a knowledge point, appreciation. With what we begin to appreciate with depth, we apply to test, experiment and explore our knowledge and when we have seen its duplicatable resonant value we come into the place of contribution where we share it as we reflect our outer walk bringing a mastery to what we know by how we give. This is the cornerstone of our year long experience in appreciating the seasons of awareness, education, application and contribution through the design of the labyrinth.

To go beyond our condition is a practice and in each month we can explore the vigor of our own youth, as it is natural to remember when discovering our capacities.  The wisdom of our years can then see new applications in visiting the honest reservoir of our greater potential. It is where we repurpose our response to pain from reactive to proactive and indeed make the world work better for all.

—————————————————————————————

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 56th day…
Walk with the idea of refocusing and repurposing one problem.

Deconditioning

Day 54: February 23
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

In the essence of love comes the considerations of the greater capacities of men and women. As changes occur in the vastness of the world and feminine wisdom rises, the honest truth of what we are all capable of will be the rising point that moves us forward as humanity. When we love our differences, are honest about the fact that evolution is occurring and seek to improve the quality of all lives, the right of who we are will bring us into a place that elevates the status of humankind in both women and men.

After a talk of just what it might take to ease the conditions of change now facing the roles  of men and women, the walk of the collective on the labyrinth seemed to bring more realization to the moment and many epiphanies were met with personal solutions.

In The Month of: Love


It is a blessing and a joy to bring the heart into focus in this walk of possibility we are creating daily in the 365 Experience. Leading with the heart this month has opened up numerous activities, valuable insights and appreciable gratitude in what can be accomplished in the name of simple honesty. When its not complicated, its value is immense and helps us to realize that potential is an essence of opportunity we can tap into and expand in any moment.

Today with a group of women, the conversation heart took on a new dimension of heart in the pathways of our connection and collaboration. Spreading out the Conversation Hearts, each designed and developed their own independent conversation of what their heart spoke in all honesty. The conversations that came in discussion were wonderfully rich and revealing.  Of the three I created, this is the one that I enjoyed the most.

Time for Change

Day 52: February 21
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

In our search for ability and capacity in the journey of honesty comes a moment when we have to face the things we do not like or feel we have little control in the outcome. For the world our latest tragedy in Florida is such a moment of utter heartbreak and loss that echoes an ache for a community, a country and beyond. Our prayers and considerations are kind gestures, though they do little to truly ease the errant emotions that rise in suffering, anger and injustice. We seek to make our lives better in revealing what lays in our truth and if ever such a moment arose to call us to rise in action, it is this and from the very first call that was made many years ago, the call only increases and intensifies.

Walking on the change that is called for is an honest moment of realization that everyone can find an action that becomes a contribution to a solution. Education and collaboration take away the stigma of ignorance and isolation and rather than react, proactivity is the necessary path so that we aren’t projecting our own fears into a pot that is overly full; it is no help to rant and rave as that is more of the problem. Walking on solutions today, this link will lead you from a place of not knowing to offer a perspective with studied insight. The honesty in this day, looks within to realize what thing we can do.

The Message in the Wind

Day 51: February 20
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

The weather can sometimes be a test of our truth. When the sun is shining, there isn’t much of a question as we find comfort in the warmth of the sun’s rise. This is the time we appreciate most as it is less conflicted and exists before or after a storm, or any period of seasonal turbulence. As the wind howls around today’s walk, grounding is a necessity as the gusts are picking up on anything not rooted or steadfast. Walking in the whirl of winds brings a message of change. Where change is constant, we find we are resistant to it as humans. We like our routines and known outcomes and change represents the alternative.

Today the weather’s winds are speaking volumes of change, leaving whispered messages for another day in lieu of the howling attentions sought in both its ability to create pressure and movement to provide sound in its spiraled circular masses.  The winds are not gentle in their communication, rather abrupt and demanding. Instead of resisting what might move me from the path of today’s steps, a decision to flow with its motion and use its undercurrent to advantage in staying upright became akin to playing with the wind and creating new paths.

In the release of resistance one can discover how the wind is a natural labyrinth.
