Day 29: January 29
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Definition
On my way to an event for a planning, the drive had a way of alerting me to the status I would arrive at as the directions seemed straightforward and simple, though for some reason obtaining the actual address seemed brought with unreal complications. Thinking of the unconstructed areas in this new region, I put the address into the GPS device and found I looped around to the left and came back to the main road and then circumnavigated again to the right with a few more turns appeared to come along to make it interesting. By the time I arrived again on the original thoroughfare, I decided to switch off the GPS and rely on my own abilities to find the rest of the way there.
It seemed not unlike the times when awareness raises in the lack of trust or dependence on a device. It is in those times that we can inspire ourselves with an honest realization of what we actually need and how often it lays at the feet of our own ingenuity. Realizing I had created a driving labyrinth, I sat for a moment with a chuckle and before going in as I suspected the meeting held some interesting directions of similar patterning. In this brief reflection, I wasn’t surprised when directions for our planning meeting took us off course and looping around a bit.
With an honest moment of sharing my thoughts about my drive and it’s very labyrinth nature in conjunction to our process, it was easy to elevate the consciousness to move onto the same path and use the ideas and directions in a way that would bring us to a clear and defined point. It was quite something to be able to draw out a labyrinth and illustrate where we had been and where we might go more effectively. Trusting the message, speaking of the synchronous observation and using it to create a better outcome were the honest realizations and efforts of using and becoming what we are capable of in this year long experience of living more honestly with our possibilities, potential and path opportunities.
A suggestion to walk with:
Observe how the patterns in your walk today are used throughout your day.
TLS 365 Experience 2018: The Year of Living Honestly
Whether it’s a daily walk, teaching others, sharing an experience, expressions of art, building or design, we explore the questions of what brings us to honesty in our use of the labyrinth.
In a world of emerging truth, the labyrinth is a great experience to discover more of what is right and true about ourselves and humanity. Join us in sharing the honest moments it reveals.
Daily unfolding the process:
