Day 144: May 24
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration
What practices or commitments do you make on a daily basis? Walking the labyrinth is one we can do to compliment our meditation, intentions, prayer, exercise, focus time or conscious presence, creative time, stress release or even better….joy increase. Where we want to improve, repeating a process or practicing it helps us to know it more and adapt to the lesson or desire to understand more. It is in those practices that we can appreciate and celebrate what we are doing to promote new understanding and make improvements with our understanding of ourselves and the world. We might not even realize that each time we step forward into a practice or commitment, we are celebrating the forward movements we make.
From eating to eating in a healthy way, to walking for discovery or improvement, the many simple things we do all day long may have a sense of repetition that we often don’t think about that are what allow our abilities to sharpen and strengthen. Take some time today to realize how many little and seemingly insignificant things you do for your own well being and as you do, appreciate them and celebrate yourself. As we make improvements and cause for celebration in our own lives, we can help but interface with others in this better way and elevate the world too.
In this design there are 196 different positive ideas of things you probably do everyday though don’t consider the celebration of them…. Observe the change when you do.
On this 144th day…
Walk with all the things you do daily and celebrate those things that you do to improve and appreciate your life.
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:
- 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
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
