A Place of Refuge

TLS 365 Experience #160
Aug. 7, 2017

Near the Emergency Room is the labyrinth. There aren’t ever many people on it, though when there are, it is a place of comfort at a time of need.

The waiting in a Waiting Room can be extraordinary at a time of crisis, as it is where time appears to have slowed down while pain and fear increase. The labyrinth can provide a place of refuge, prayer or centering for those who wait and a productive or healthy application of time and energy. It can provide a hopeful opportunity when a helpless feeling prevails. For adults who know or don’t know about what a labyrinth is and come to experience it at a time of pain, it can provide a knowing or surprisingly unknown sense of comfort for the heart and the mind.

I come here from time to time just to walk, as it is near my home and sometimes I sit quietly and respect the walk of others. I find a refuge of comfort, prayer and purpose here and am grateful to the community that supplied it.

Winding and Unwinding

TLS 365 Experience #140
July 18, 2017

When you don’t know what to say, walk on it… somehow the spiraling inward and the cross brain transitions unwind the mind so that what was confusing can become clear. When lost in thought, the labyrinth takes on the erratic nature of it all and soothes a gentleness so that finding one’s self is the discovery in the center or at the end.

I used to simply walk the labyrinth or finger walk a smaller instrument to find a sense of grounding and centering, though of late the clarity becomes about the greater giving and contribution that we can make. When we move beyond the problem of thinking the steps on the labyrinth become about solutions and action. As we evolve, the labyrinth continues to provide another layer and a new path.

No matter where you begin, in the end you will always find an outcome more significant and useful in the un winding walk that winds it all together again more purposefully.
