Savoring Seasonal Steps

Day 25

January 25, 2019
Month of Beginnings
Quarter of Consciousness
Let’s Walk the World, a focus of contribution

  1. For Your Walk:
    Close your eyes and imagine this walk in the seasons of your year. Walk in as winter. At the middle of the first half of your walk close your eyes again and imagine the spring. At the end of the first half repeat the imagination with summer and before the last quarter of the walk, imagine fall.
  2. For Your Experience: 
    Do you walk differently with the seasons? Which is the most engaging and which the least and why?
  3. Share:   Share your message
    When we collectively offer the ways to begin, someone sees a new idea, thought or experience to enjoy. Today, share images, art, ideas, designs, tips, facilitations, building strategies, ideas from your book, poems, teachings, etc.

Today’s Experience:

The first snow of the season falls on the labyrinthWalked the labyrinth today even tho snow covered 99% of path! Insight that as long as I kept moving, with muscle memory of having walked it before and knowledge of the center, even if it wasn’t a neat way to get there, I would still arrive at the center and retrace my steps back out again.

Honest about some discomfort about not doing it “right” and appreciation for building consistency of engaging with the labyrinth/myself and getting good exercise and brisk fresh air, too!

January: A Month of Beginnings

With a focus on sharing this month and the ways we set up our plans to the actual way we place our first step, beginnings can offer us a way to realize our outcomes.

  1.  Explore what beginning is like for you, personally or professionally in all you do.
  2.  Observe yourself in this first quarter of the year as a contribution.
  3.  Walk, design, teach, build, express yourself in sharing an experience this month.

The Tenth

Day 130: May 10
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration

a labyrinth of ten strokesOn this 10th day of May on the 130th day of the year, celebrating the number 10 with a focus on the decade. How far have we come in ten years? Consider your experience with the labyrinth ten years ago, your status in life ten years ago and your focus of the world ten years ago. Things have changed, though what has consistently grown and developed in your abilities and possibilities?  Let this tenth day in May remind you of the first year ten years ago, then the second and continue on until you find a developing trend that you can honestly celebrate.

This labyrinth design was made with ten strokes. Three straight lines and seven circles. Each stroke a way of relating to the last ten years. Having designed a decade walk for an organization years ago that celebrated the gains and wins in each year to be acknowledged and recognized, it was a great way to bring in the anniversary of their accomplishments and honor those responsible and the actions they took to create the positive focus for the company. Approaching a new decade of life soon in this month, it is also a great reflection of celebrations that assist in appreciating some new directions. With ones and zeros that make up the number ten, the lines and circles in the number 10 create a path of possibilities.

On this 130th day…
Celebrate your past decade for the gains you have created. Observe what has grown and developed and where you are more capable.


The Month of Celebration, Appreciation and Realization
May’s Focus: Celebration

Life is a celebration to explore in the next 31 days. With the idea of walking the labyrinth and its tri-focus on releasing, receiving and reflecting, let’s shift the perspective to one that walks in with appreciation, finds the honest realization from each day and walks out in celebration.  Observe what 31 days of this focus might reflect and how it elevates our life condition.

Four focus points to expand your celebration of this month’s experience:

  1. Share your ideas, in your personal experiences, how you share the labyrinth with others, art, design or method of construction or in other ways that it may be utilized. Let others know about this daily experience and opportunity by sharing it. Find us on this blog and on the Labyrinth Societies Facebook page
  2. Join our Mid Month Dialogues on May 15th at 2pm CST for a lively look at what you have created and will create in the idea of celebration. This month’s theme was a direct result of our last month’s Mid Month Dialogue!
  3. Participate in the daily opportunity of this educational focus of  your personal journey, how you lead, teach or share with others, and what you create for contribution or purpose with this theme.
  4. Remember that our theme is about finding our greater capacities, abilities and true realities in being honest with our potential. We focus on what we can do as it is inherently more useful and productive.

100 Steps

Day 100: April 10
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement

The 100 Steps of the 100 Days of LabyrinthToday marks the 100th day of the year and when we see milestones stretch across the landscape of our life, it can give pause for notice and a time to look back at what was created or look ahead with inspiration to the next marker of our time and effort. 100 of anything is a mass of consciousness that respectfully invites our appreciation. Consistency toward anything for a period of 100 elements also builds, teaches and evolves what we are capable of. We’ve been working toward discovering more of what we are honestly able to be and do during this past 100 days; today can be a day of reckoning and acknowledging our progress and our forward steps.

This design is a simple amused use of 100. It is also one of 100 other designs independently and individually created as an effort to develop a new step each day in both honest opportunity and possibility. As this is the month of amusement and discovering our greater intelligence and ability with its use, this 100 day design gives us a whimsical reminder of looking back or forward with a sense of easy enlightenment.

 

On this 100th day…
Note your thoughts of your experiences in the past 100 days. What have you accomplished, what has grown and what is changing in ways you can appreciate?

April's Banner Year of Living Honestly 2018April’s Focus

Let this month unfurl your creativity, spontaneity and jocularity. It feels good to feel good and while we have been conditioned to shush our good times, let the labyrinth be our own private creation station of amusement, enjoyment and playful experiments. This month educate with amusement and see how much farther you get. Have fun and be creative.  We have three opportunities to education your potential with amusement this month that involves either your personal walk, your ability to design and how much you can learn by sharing. On your Mark, Get Set…Go!

  1. Innovate – Walk Amused
    In the 30 days that grace this month, play with the way you personally experience the labyrinth. Let this season of education be one of personal bests and enjoy finding a new way to be innovative, creative, inspired and amused in your personal experiences. I’d love to see what you come up with!
    Please share your wonderful experiences! 

2. Create – Design Inspired 
To date I have created 95 different labyrinth creations and designs since the beginning of the year, let that inspire you to create something new this month that is inspiring and firing for your imagination. Einstein said that playing with ideas was the highest form of research and this is an education for all of us.  As you walk in new ways, share your designs as I have done with mine last year and this. Perfection isn’t what we are after, amusement is! I look forward to seeing what you come up with! I will toss out lots of inspiring ideas… stay tuned daily.
Share away and become a glad designer instead of a mad one!  

3. Relate – Share with Care
One of the best ways to learn anything is having to teach or explain it to someone else. Whether you facilitate others, teach or simply share with a few, spend the month discovering amusing new ways to help others get more out of their walk with a lighter attitude and a more earnest enjoyment in what you share. Anything you want to know more about, share and this month share with a fun flair and notice how much more you actually begin to understand. You just might find a side of yourself forgotten. To receive all that, be a great giver.
Share what you discover!

Have and Have Nots

Day 27: January 27
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Definition

It was a dark and stormy night that turned into a dark and stormy day and the yearning to get outside for today’s walk found solace in the warmth of the indoors and comfort in listening to the cleansing process the Earth was experiencing outdoors. The rain’s consistency became a meditation that accompanied an indoor project of rubbings. When my copier suspended operations one day, I found rubbings were a way to quickly produce a more authentic artistic experience for a group facilitation. Today, in listening to the rain, the rubbings became meditative and with a variety to choose from, each finger walk seemed to have a different story. The simple grey tones also reflected the atmosphere quite well and it was interesting to notice where the center provided the brightest space.

A walk outdoors would have provided a nice cool briskness, though what was created indoors provided meditative reflectiveness while accomplishing something useful. Each walk has its own wisdom and truth and dropping away from all we could have, would have or should have reveals something far greater with more value. Defining what we can do, have available and can create makes life simpler, more meaningful and honest.

A suggestion to walk with:

Walk with what you don’t have and what you do have today and notice the difference.
