Steering

Day 116: April 26
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement

Day 116 Labyrinth, the wheelHaving spent the better part of the last few days behind the wheel of a car traveling cross country, the wheel became a fascination with circular reality. It purposefully led the direction and where it went straightforward mainly, there were turns and new directions to embrace; each defining the journey and the point of direction. The wheel itself turned left then back to center, right then back to center and continued in a natural way that appreciated the labyrinth and what it can offer in similar migration.

The next time you partake of a journey, consider the directions and redirections made by the simple turn of fate and turn on purpose. Let the wheel of life rotate to bring great directions and reflections.

On this 116th day…
Take a walk today on the labyrinth  and notice turns and directions that guide you. Consider the many turns and directions throughout your day and where they lead.

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!

Shear Gladness

Day 112: April 22
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement

strands of paths Today the strands of life came together through a collaboration of cosmetologists. Arriving at my daughter’s salon, the idea was to trim up a few loose ends and in the conversations and chatter, the labyrinth weaved its way from brain to scalp. The process and procedures of styling were standard, though being Mom, special treatment meant a few extra perks and a bit more time in the affair of the chair.

Time to doodle with affect of the surrounding wall images of ravishing locks, the observance of the threads and strands in their natural and somewhat unnatural order moved circular, straight and altogether redistributed. Each fun follicle emanated from a central point and with a variety of stylized directions maneuvered in such a way as to meander until it found its completion among others.

From a bottom’s up perspective one might find the intrigue begins at the ends and moves to a central point with a reflection from before to after. A look at some of the designs of coif and couture and it is not surprising to find a labyrinth affair of hair so purposefully appreciated. Perhaps in this amusing way, the labyrinth can remove all the twisting, twirling and teasing with a little straightforward insight.  In the honesty of a hair style we might discover some of our greater features that bring us to take things a little less seriously and be INspired by our natural creativities to play with what is available.

On this 112th day…
Weave your way onto the path today noticing the strands in each path and how they each are part of the whole.

Synchronous Steps

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.

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:
Next Mid Month 365 Experience Gathering on February 15th  to explore the monthly focus. Share your posts from your walks and experiences with our theme this week at: 365Experience@labyrinthsociety.org

Eleven Labyrinth

TLS 365 Experience #286
December 11, 2017

A labyrinth of eleven'sOn this day of 11, comes the double benefit of the singular and significant number of one. Offered in the spirit of oneness, is the 11 labyrinth. Sitting in school, I had to come up with a design and nothing came except the number 11, which was the date I had put at the top of my paper. So I began to draw the number eleven on my paper in different directions. It seemed only natural to find a winding path through them and a point at where one reached the center or an end. Since this time, I’ve made a number of numbers and added to the eleven labyrinth, though this is the original simple beginning. Happy Day of Eleven!

A Path of Change

TLS 365 Experience #226
October 12, 2017

The leaves are changing and change is always a great topic for the labyrinth as it is something that is constant and flowing yet so hard to accept for what it brings. We offered an all campus walk and made it all about how each sees and comprehends change on the inward walk, how each invites it or resists it and the results in the center and what change each would like to make on the exit walk as a result of their experience.

We left a writing board up for people to write out their ideas and make their personal declarations for the calendar year at school. It opened up doors and avenues for our administrative boards to get behind the idea of what individuals were seeking and a place for us to engage our entire campus on one platform with individual directions. Throughout the year we will keep tabs on the progress, create events to support those ideas and keep it an open running dialogue in our classes.
