Day 166: June 15
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Exploration
Estimated at being 2,500 years old, the discovery of a circular labyrinth was made only a year before of an ancient labyrinth design by two researchers that was observed in our exploration for yesterday. This design may be 500 years older and sits at approximately 700 square feet in area, making it another megalithic reward.
This labyrinth is located only two hours north of the other ancient labyrinth in the forested town of Horus in the Krishnagiri district of Southern India. It is a place where gardens are not overrun by rabbits, but trampled annually by elephants to give some perspective of the area and Indian culture.
This circle of stones was found in a simple and obscure community used unknowingly in ceremony and ritual by its members adopting it in a prayerful way and adding it to their way of life. Its natural wonder and wisdom must have appealed to the community to simply adjust by using it and thereby gaining in understanding rather than clearing it in the name of progress. The labyrinth existed before any of its inhabitants giving it a sense of greater appreciation and respect perhaps.
On this 166th day…
Explore what you have learned to adapt to instead of change and how it has made you more as a result.
Interactive Map Progress
A great Interactive experience this month will include a google map to track where we have been and what labyrinths you submit. Lets see if we can make a labyrinth pathway out of the month of travels based on the locations offered. We began in Portland, Oregon…. Click here to watch the progress grow this month!
Our exploration this month is to discover the World Wide Wow in the unique and innovative labyrinth designs world wide that inspire us to move beyond the everyday and give us a larger labyrinthic look at what our path can truly provide. From the idea of living outside your box to simply doing something different everyday, allow this journey of June to educate you and your relationship to life with the labyrinth. We’e taking a global course in Labyrinthing!
- Get Global….Explore the World
Investigate the world wonders of labyrinth design that are unique and different. From the permanent structures that are built to the canvas portable unique designs or the finger labyrinths that inspire a different walk, share the images at the 365 Experience on the TLS website and provide some detail and share your thoughts. Note how these designs are outside the box of traditional design and how they might take us outside the design we’ve been living in. They can be quite diverse or small simple adjustments that make it different too.
- Act Local…. Bring the World to you
Let your walks, programs, designs, creations and simple enthusiasm be inspired by what the world offers us with fresh ways to create new experiences in the 30 days of this month. If it is doing something different each day, walking a new labyrinth, designing, researching or some new way to share, do it then share it with us! By becoming acquainted with the unique labyrinths of the world, we can be inspired as to why they are different, how they serve and what they offer on the same path we walk on in our home or local community area.
