Day 80: March 21
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Discover
On this new day of spring, the rotational symmetry of the Triskelion design is found in the three spirals that form a triple spiraled labyrinth. It is considered Pre-Celtic as it’s symbol has been found in Malta between 4400-3600 BC. It was found carved in the stones at New Grange, Mycenaean vessels, Lycian coins, and throughout ancient Greece, Italy, Japan, Korea and Tibet. Today we can find its symbolism on areas of motion such as the air corps, the US Department of Transportation fitting it’s name in the origins of the Ancient Greek, Triskeles, which means three legged. It has been a symbol of both forward motion for understanding and competition. It is also a symbol for greater insight from the present existence to the spiritual and the celestial.
From this perspective we may take this interesting trifecta of spirals and consider the movement of our walk to appreciate the forward understandings that have brought us to this day in time, yet also consider the triple significance of greater existence or like our year of greater realization of potential, a consideration for our present circumstances in our walk with spiritual considerations and the largeness of the celestial existence. It can help us to feel the expansiveness of any current predicament or wonder.
In creating this design of the Triskelion today the three double spirals laid over a peace symbol for its similar triple appeal were separated in color and as a result demonstrated four parts to this tri-named symbol. Three simple Euclidean spirals form the outer experience, yet it is the true center Triskelion symbol that centers it all and adds a greater depth to the spiral of this day and the movement it creates.
A suggestion to walk with:
On this 80th day…
Move in gradual stillness and expansion noticing how graceful both become in you.
As it is now the third month of the year and our last month of growing awareness before we delve into the ways of education, allow this month be one that creates both the light hearted discovery and profound realization. How can you create more awareness with the labyrinth personally or in the ways you share with others? Where do you notice a spiral effect that takes you to the point or away from it? Be on the lookout for the spiraling nature this month.
In the 31 Days this month offers, become aware of the daily realizations that you create and discover. Walking daily creates compound interest in what you look forward to and discover each day. Let March become your month of expanded capacity as you walk to make each day and adventure in exploration of what more you can explore. Seek to spiral into new and inspiring realization and whether it is rich and profound or light hearted and amusing… be open, walk with intention and you are bound to come away larger.
One can realize and find much in the depth of understanding that awareness offers us, though when we look forward to realization of that depth and awareness, it can inspire new ways of appreciation and discovery in both our process and capabilities as we are constantly growing, no matter what age. Invite the element of surprise into what you realize as it can lift what you discover into seeing a bit more than before. Notice the spiral effect of how you move from realize to surprise and make discovery more significant and true.
