The Question of How

Day 2

January 2, 2019
Month of Beginnings
Quarter of Consciousness
Let’s Walk the World, a focus of contribution

  1. For Today’s Walk:
    How do you begin a labyrinth, is it the same for all or are there different ways and different days?
  2. For Today’s  Experience: 
    How is the ways you begin the labyrinth similar to the way you begin anything. Consider your personal experiences, professional events, labyrinth offerings. 
  3. Share Today:   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:

How ?
The question of how is one that can be confusing as there are infinite ways to answer the how. How to begin? For me, it is a different experience fitting the particular labyrinth. If it is a design, I might use beads or a device I created to separate the circuits and openings. I might draw it out on paper or lay it out in rope. I also might just use whatever happens to be handy. I also might sculpt or paint an image too. With a background in technology and design, software programs aid the drawing of lines, circles and shapes of creation too.

If it is a walk, it might depend upon what type of walk. With a finger walk, getting comfortable to be loose and experience is a must. If it is a physical walk, sometimes just walking in and letting the experience occur is important and sometimes some consideration of a question arises. What is common in all, is that there is always a beginning to everyday, so there is always a labyrinth walk to participate in some how, some where at some point in the day.

Daily Celebrations

Day 144: May 24
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration

Daily Celebrations with a labyrinth overlaid of rectangles and footstepsWhat 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. Consider our creative time, stress release or even better….joy increase and as we improve through repetition of a process or practice of it we inherently know it even more when we put an intention behind it.

It is in those practices that we can appreciate and celebrate what we are doing to promote new understanding and make improvements, particularly with an understanding of how it all relates to ourselves and our world existence. We might not even realize the small subtle steps we create as we practice and progress.  There are subtle appreciations and realizations waiting for you to acknowledge, take steps today to become more aware of them.

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 and gradually our abilities sharpen, strengthen and expand. The time you take today to realize how many little and seemingly insignificant things you do in the fullness of one day gradually point you to a purposeful and useful expansion of yourself. Each is a simple effort that when appreciated and realized becomes cause for celebration. The more you find things to celebrate, the larger you see the world around you.

In this design there are 196 different positive ideas of things you probably do everyday though don’t consider the celebration of them…. bserve 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.


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.

Purpose Love

Day 57: February 24
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

Each day offers a new opportunity on the labyrinth and in the suggestions for discovery of the honesty found in our walks, we already know that honesty is present in a walk. What is not always understood is the volume of potential that also exists in a variety of ways. As potential is limitless field of broad perspective, it will never be fully utilized in our lifetime, though tapping into more of what we have been using, that is our quest.

That is what is the honest to goodness truth for us to discover and while it might lay obvious before us on the path, recognizing, learning more and applying it is our great opportunity to find the heart in what we do and honestly love it too.

Today was a simple honest walk of looking into what I do and how I love it immensely. In all honesty it encourages, elevates and inspires others to wake up and take action, improving life quality. For me however it is a contribution to my own creativity and with each offering an introspective into my own understanding and relationship with the potential of the world. The more that is offered, the more the capacity expands and the more love grows. Barbara Marx Hubbard said it eloquently, “When a woman has found her purpose, it is as if she is in love.” There is a heart with spirit that finds its way into the everyday and I wonder that it is not the same experience with men too?

Be blessed in your discoveries today whether sorting out a few things or embracing something new or challenging. Find the arrow that hits your target and the love in it and observe the change in your walk.

—————————————————————————————

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 57th day…
Walk as you do when you are in love. Observe the changes when you walk in love with an idea or purpose instead of a person.

————————————————————————————–


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.

Giving Care

TLS 365 Experience #129
July 7, 2017

I am a Caregiver.

No one realizes how intense this can be until they find themselves in the moments of it. It is a rather spontaneous adventure and one that calls us to attention in ways we didn’t think possible, though it is where we find the possible and what lies even beyond that.

The path of curves and circles represents much reminder of choice as I can appreciate the care I give to myself in a daily way. The everyday focus keeps me more than grounded; it offers wisdom, patience and a profound sense of purpose in a meaningful and peaceful message. Daily I am met with new experiences and insights into my self and the role of giving care and with every piece of education I receive, I can apply it more appreciably in the care of another.

The walk of the labyrinth’s many paths also provides a regular time for the care of me.

Commitment’s Message

TLS 365 Experience #76
May 15, 2017

I love to walk the labyrinth and have made it might daily practice.

Over the years there have been times when I wondered why I had made such a commitment and what it was truly offering me on a daily basis. These would be normal questioning of anyone who makes a commitment to a daily practice, as I have many of them.

What I have noticed is that each practice and commitment walks with me through the living of my life. They make me consider, remind me of what is important and bring me into the moment. The more I walk in this way, the more I realize the moment is not something to come to, rather it is already present and the pause is the moment for gratitude. In the labyrinth, it might be the moment of the center or maybe the beginning or ending.

An everyday walk of the labyrinth then becomes an everyday expression of gratitude.
