A Decision for Indecision

TLS 365 Experience #145
July 23, 2017

It was a day of indecision where chaos lay claim. After too many coincidental experiences of inefficiency, I surrendered to the whirlwind style of the day and what it held. Where my thoughts wanted to sort it all out on the labyrinth later on, every step became a beleagured indenture.

I found it wise to stop and become still as the currents of  the day continued to carry on and in that moment I surrendered my thoughts, I surrendered any need to understand and I just began walking in the way I wanted to.

Without the cacophony, natural function and order returned, the day disappeared along with any need to know or figure it out. The only decision that worked for me in this day of indecision was to stop being a part of it, and in this my steps will always take me in the direction I want to go.

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.

A Long Walk

TLS 365 Experience #111
June 19, 2017

The Long Walk It seemed like such a long walk.
I was tired and here to walk the labyrinth with a friend. She asked if I would come with and where I had not walked a labyrinth before, I humored her and came along even though all parts of me longed to be elsewhere.

As I stood by contemplating my turn and waiting for the opening, it seemed like a really long walk that didn’t seem to end anywhere. As my turn came I joined in and stepped into this interesting circle. I looked down mostly to keep my balance and make sure my feet knew where to step and where not too. It became easier when I realized the only thing we had to do was follow the path.  I relaxed and enjoyed the outdoors and soon found my movement lighter and flowing and before long I had reached the center. Not long at all.

Years later I reflect back on that first long walk and my initial interpretation. Where I was resistance, the labyrinth’s turns and patterns relaxed and invited. What seemed so long so many years ago now seems so short… Am I done already?

Confusion Can Be a Choice

TLS 365 Experience #95
June 3, 2017

Labyrinth at Westlake

The Labyrinth at Westlake could use some love and tender care.

Set in the small garden adjacent to the hospital, where the grounds are cared for in great consideration, most are unaware of the missing stones and incompleteness of the labyrinth in its current state. To walk it currently is to invite confusion to those aware, yet also of karmic note is the metaphor that may speak of the care status of this small hospital as well.

Offering to help and make the small adjustments was not welcomed by the administration, though the awareness and education have been offered and passed on. I am reminded that while we have a desire to champion the great fix and pave the way for others; there is an order to every disorder and always a great education in that.

Today, I walked away from the confusion and found a new open, inviting and welcome new path.

Questions Answered

TLS 365 Experience #92
May 31, 2017

I’ve got questions and I know the labyrinth has answers.

In walking, what I really know is that I do have answers.

The walk allows me the time to unwind my mind enough to relax all the confusion that I put there to come to the point where the answer was positioned all along. I may pick it up in the middle, and move to complete my walk, I know it the acceptance seems to take about as long to come as the confusion took to leave.

When I walk out where I began, I notice that the answer indeed is sitting right next to the question, though without becoming the question and the confusion, would I have really accepted the answer?
