Darkness

Day 295  October 22
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Message, Metaphor and Magic

Topic: Darkness

The essentiality of darkness proves its value everyday of our lives by being present to renew ourselves in it over and over again.


The  Message:

The ominous nothingness is often confused for darkness. The duality of light and dark has a singular purpose, where each provides a portion of what brings the oneness. Darkness is the place that absorbs and holds the light and the space of creation, where seeds are planted, babies mature in womb and sleep restores our condition. In a visual world, the unaccustomed darkness offers the unknown and to the cautious, the unsure. Light is not absent, its energy is absorbed for the great night work that is birthed in the light of day. Light reflects and white light absorbs little of the light it shines on all else. It is little wonder then, that darkness is so necessary for the balance of energy and the harmony of two resources for one purpose.

The Magic: 

Darkness may seem eerie or magical, yet it invites our walk on the labyrinth to see more by not seeing. Our candlelight and moonlit experiences offer a quiet retraction to listen a little deeper. Aware of the subtle nuances we can appreciate what is unknown as a growing experience in walking away with a little more that becomes known for having walked. Darkness is where we trust in a great way that it is ok to sleep and refresh. 

 


Daily Insights : On this 295th day…
Where in your walk do you absorb the most, in the knowing of light or the unknowing darkness?

Finding Balance

Day 117: April 27
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement

A Yin and Yang LabyrinthAfter long periods of exertion comes the balance of restoration, whether we seek it or not. Our body knows the wisdom of rest that mere humans often do not. After a long drive cross country, the days of rejuvenation now rise to spiral away the extended efforts of energy consumed while conversely spiraling inward a remembered natural restorative resilience. In what we release, the wisdom of our human condition is to increase and beyond the idea of balance, is the opportunity to evolve harmonic equation. Im making a labyrinth design out of the balanced Yin and Yang symbol, the labyrinth design overlaid gives a new element and dimension to balance and evolves its purpose.

Today’s message becomes one of amusing creativity with what is called for and what is available and in looking around from the resting place, the Yin and Yang symbol came into focus, it’s natural message of balance was just the right communication for the day. Creativity can be a way of realizing a quiet restorative and bring all sides and viewpoints into one focus.

 

This walk through of the yin and yang can take us on the ride of our differences, yet it also reminds us that it’s symbol is one whole and like our walk of the labyrinth, it is one walk to awaken, respond and realize in steps to fully realize the whole.  In this labyrinth walk of Yin and Yang, begin at the bottom and find your way to the top, cross over the border of duality between white to black at the top instead of exiting and you will end where you began.

On this 117th day…
Amuse your many parts with a walk today that brings the seemingly different sides together as one.

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!

The Oneness

Day 111: April 21
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement

the labyrinth of onesYears ago the day of November 11, 2011 invited a design of elevens for a simple navigational experience. Today in adding one more one, things took off with a binary beat of lines and circles or ones and zeros. With a few circles for circumference symbolizing the endless singular line, the copious amount of ones became tracks  laid out on a path of length and width in a direction that goes both this way and that.

With all the talk of oneness these days, we seem to be more focused on the duality of this side or that, this way or that and this and that. Even choice is a division of oneness. How does one get to oneness with the acceptance required? Play with the honest capability of what we can do and who we are as it is the one truth that lays within. With a little amusement, in this design, to find the oneness, one must go within.

On this 111th day…
Reflect in your walk, what is within today that symbolizes your appreciation of what oneness is in your steps.

HeART Communication

Day 35: February 4
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

 

Art is found in the heart, expressed from the soul and displayed in a variety of forms. The labyrinth becomes a truth of tapestry for those who dabble in its design.

For some it is merely for the drafting of an outline for an expedient finger walk and for others, it is the walk of inner creativity, of strokes and pathways leading us to an appreciable pivotal experience.

The lines and movement converge in the walk to relax and reduce what is unnecessary and deliver a reliable conscientious experience that is what honesty is all about.

 

This design began of two minds and ended with two ways to walk, perhaps to rise or soften each side independently. Where I am seeing heart evidence in my walk and walk of life, it is interesting that the past few days have also included drawing and designing ideas of the heART too.  After a walk weighing the duality of many things, some of which were merging and others offered a harmony of differences.  One labyrinth in art brought them both together.

—————————————————————————————

A suggestion to walk with:

On this Fourth day…
Discover the way of your heart and what it leans toward today that is creative or heART centered. Find evidence and truth in your walk and reflections of hearts in your day that symbolize your truth.

February’s Focus

As it is the second month of the year, enjoy two opportunities… discovery and realization.

  1. Discover your Love capacity:
    This month’s 28 days will focus on how we are loving the moments we are creating. Learning to be “in love” with our focus, it expands who we are beyond the partnered relational aspects and into the focus of loving what we offer the world, who we are in community, relating at a higher level to everything and everyone; and most significantly,  elevating the relationship we have with ourselves. Prepare for a wonderful experience of exercising the power of love with the freedom of honesty to realize a greater look at possibilities and potential n a delightful way. Discover how capable you are!

2. Realize synchronous evidence:
Inspired by the variety of heart shaped labyrinths, this month capture your experiences with images of the heart. Be on the look out for where the synchronicity of the moments where your heart is in focus and then look around to see where you can find the shape of a heart in symbol. Your awareness will expand and you just might be surprised to find that when we look with an open heart, we can find it in reference near by. It does require a bit of imagination, though the findings are wonderfully worth it. Share all the heart shaped labyrinth images you find with images, links or comments and I will be happy to post the images and moments.
Care to Share and Share to Care!

Two to One

TLS 365 Experience #232
October 18, 2017

The labyrinth’s message may be internal though externally is where it shows up. Like night and day the two sides are equally balanced as we move in and out in what appears to be a system of duality.  It is the wholeness of the experience that offers us a oneness in the completion of both parts.
