Topic: Sacred

In walking, one finds a great rearrangement occurs enabling simple ways to see complex purpose.


The  Message:

A venerated space for divinity is the realm of the sacred, a place to allow the presence of our humility in the face of a magnitude we merely understand. To walk in that space it to be willing to take in the moment as a morsel of the limitless availability and apply it with a mountain of meaning. The nature of our reverence grows in our ability to not understand, but to trust and abide in this implicitly.

The Magic: 

Walking realizations provide expansion from being one person to being one person in the world. In the moment present, walking with any tenacious feeling inward with turning movements of mind and body, a rearrangement from stillness to motion to stillness occurs and changes what’s moved to be moved. In mere steps, what is unsure can become sure and more reverent of the magical change as scared opens wonder of the sacred with respect and reverence. Walking in can move an element into wholly different perspective as one walks out. 

When writing scared instead of sacred, is it a message to trust?

 

 


Daily Insights : On this 277th day…
Walk in a little unknowing, a little scared to walk out a little more knowing and more reverent for what is sacred.

Creative Scheduling

Day 22: January 22
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Definition

I find the more we practice the more we make the realizations about what is right, what is true and what is aligned with our purpose and beliefs. I got in the habit of creating a short focus of time daily to the labyrinth and that helped me to make more  daily habits that support my efforts.

It isn’t for everyone, though it works for me and has gotten easier over the past 14 years. When we can set up simpler ideas and have some value behind them, we are more likely to find that it isn’t a goal, or overarching commitment, it is pure enjoyment and something we look forward to discovering. In this practice, its about realizing what else we possess in gifts, talents and abilities and what more we are capable of. Think of it as a daily surprise awaiting as it is more honest approach and much more productive.

I have a few labyrinths in design hung on the walls and they make for a quick walk while I am waiting for something. The approach is to encounter the experience as something I am looking to realize or discover more than I know right now. It becomes a growing game of what’s next, what’s more and what else I can do or be. When I make the labyrinths easily available, I’m more likely to use them. A picture on the wall, a hanging finger labyrinth, a design on your floor or even just the very small devices left in different rooms can serve us in simple moments of magic.

Define more of your moments in this way and notice how much easier it becomes to put value into your schedule for daily discoveries. Let’s not forget how easy it is to download a labyrinth walk on a smart phone application.

A suggestion to walk with:

Simplify one important thing today to make it more user friendly.

Keep Walking

TLS 365 Experience #208
September 24, 2017

I walk the labyrinth for many reasons: to release the stresses of the day, to work out knotty problems, to gain insights and ideas, to relax, to share in community, to heal my heart when it is broken.

The most powerful times seem to happen when I am lost, when I feel that somehow I have lost my way or can’t find my “next step.” The labyrinth reminds me that we can’t always see very far ahead, but that is fine because we are always on the path. It tells me that sometimes we have to backtrack, that inspiration is always available, and that I can find my way.

I just have to keep walking. It reminds me that I have to listen to my heart, that it always knows. In the center, I get inspiration and new paths to explore. When I walk out, it is a new journey.
