Seconds

Day 47: February 16
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

The flip side of love takes our experience into the second half of the month where we can focus on increasing our first half of the month’s experience. Most think the flip side of something is the opposite, though here are focus is on what’s better and increased in beneficial ways. Always move at your own pace, though if you have looked at what you love and how you love it in the first half, the second half can provide experiential or introspective at how it is related to our own sense of honesty, freedom and elevations.  What we yield in greater capacity when we love bigger, deeper and farther expands what we can love more of in what we did not so readily before.

In the walk of this morning’s adventure, the predawn darkness gave way to sunrise and it occurred that this was a new beginning; a reminder that on this day on the other half of the month a newness arrives. The enjoyment of new creations, exercised development and new looks at love as elevated experiences from the first half, are what dawn in a way that applies some of those designs for different uses and reflections. Repurposing, like the Conversation Hearts left over from last night’s love walk can be used for the school I will be going to in a few days. A fun way to orchestrate an experience of communication and conversation with the hearts as well as a chance to create their own seed patterns to reinforce the value of communication with heart! May your second half bring the happy heart gladness.

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 47th day…
Walk on the wonder of the second half, second chance and value of your seconds.

 



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!

In the Beginning

Day 23: January 23
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Definition

In the beginning, there is a point of intention, though sometimes we don’t always notice it. We want to walk, practice or just be in the experience and so we come to the walk in whatever way that serves us knowing, though not always knowing the truth that sits with us. We may ask a question and have clarity around it and walk to discover, though in that beginning moment the answer is already understood.

The walk serves to support, open and supply us with evidence that helps us to open and realize more perspective or reason beyond any doubts we might be questioning.

The walk we take helps us to believe more in our own ideas, abilities and inspirations. Each step becomes a clarity of purpose and the more we are open to it, willing and ready, the more likely what is at our beginning can be more visible to us in the ending. Our walk exercises our belief, truth and trust in what we know and in our own way, we find out the subtle honest nuances of who we are and what we are capable of in the steps we take.

Today’s walk in the desert was realized in the steps taken, solidified in the turns made and transitioned into a trust in reaching  the center as a place of holding space.  It deepened with perspective and materialized in the facets of realization that now sparkled with variety by the time the walk came to a close. At the end what was true in the beginning  remained and what accompanied it was an honest evaluation of its full value.

A suggestion to walk with:

How is your beginning more realized at the end?

Freedom’s Efficiency

Day 17: January 17
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Definition

With what I have defined so far, honesty is opening more doors and providing more opportunities. It isn’t that we aren’t good and right people, it is however a way to be true to what we are capable of and realize more of what we are not perceptive of currently. In life, we are always growing in one direction or another and it reasons that we will be perpetual students learning more of this vast world and of the greater depths in every meaning we acknowledge.

Walking in stride with this, we can feel quite ignorant, even with an expansive career or extensive studies and experiences. It is a happy ignorance that can humble and grant an audience with our potential. It is also with practice and consistency that we open doors. Honesty just keeps us moving more freely and takes away the constraints of conditioning.

The modest pewter finger labyrinth’s tiny paths created a greater call for attention in today’s walk. In the Dancing Lady Design of this Baltic Wheel Labyrinth, it’s measurement of three inches in diameter is pocketable for easy availability. With two openings, it also gives a choice in the walk and so offers a simple efficiency of a quick walk most everywhere.

Where I used to believe the effective walk was done with the physical body on a permanent structure, with this kind of portability, the small efficiency wins out. Its small power is in its handiness and that makes for a more frequent use, practice and culpability of honest intentions being met. Each labyrinth and type has their place and function, though when it comes to creating an understanding or a promise with ourselves, it is the practice that educates.

A suggestion to walk with:

What becomes more efficient with honesty today?

Healthy Human Moments

Day 13: January 13
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Definition

In the Calico Basin there is a double spiral labyrinth that is a curiosity for some and a haven for others. It is a refuge in nature laid out within the protection of the surrounding mountains and by those who seek its wisdom in intentional groups or hikers who happen upon it accidentally. In meeting an associate nearby, this was the early morning opportunity to make the most of the time available and recharge with the natural Earth rhythms. It is a place where nature is what is honest.

In walking in on the outer pathways, the nature of the double spiral directs us to skip every other path into the center and skip the paths we walked in on as we walk out. It always offers a path we haven’t yet taken and an opportunity to examine what we didn’t know before or move to a new depth of understanding than we had before. Such was the case in the walk of this day. I found myself corresponding with a sister later, which directly correlated the experience. Like landing in Sweden when you’ve prepared for a trip to Italy, embracing the change happens, though the honest moment of shock and realization is to be afforded and acknowledged.

The path we walk out on will be different in this labyrinth than the one we walked in on and by acknowledging the difference; we just might be better at appreciating the nuances that it provides. The healthy honest moment of adjustment isn’t always understood for its value or afforded us. It’s called being a human and when we understand and give ourselves the moment, we walk the path of life more whole.

A suggestion to walk with:

Appreciate your healthy honest human moments of transition today.

The Gift

TLS 365 Experience #302
December 27, 2017

gift of a finger labyrinthThere is a moment of utter delight when opening a gift that was carefully selected and offered with the love. This holiday I received just that gift and I think just watching the opening of it was quite of love for the recipient.

A recent injury sidelined me from daily walks on the labyrinth and while it gave me plenty of opportunity to draw, create and follow the finger paths, at this point in my journey of the labyrinth, I hadn’t owned a finger labyrinth that had any dimension. Opening this gift and discovering the fine marble design was truly a gift of love as it came from my husband and kids who didn’t seem to have much interest in it.

I couldn’t help but experience the first finger walk out loud expressing gratitude in each path for each member and as I turned sharing how each had made me feel. Somehow I filled each path with all that I felt and in reflection shared how this gift had brought the love of family, the joy of delight and the peace of goodwill forth.

Asked and Answered

TLS 365 Experience #204
September 20, 2017

“Calm and Collected.”

This was my response to an individual who inquired of my experience after walking the labyrinth. They had observed though not intruded as I took steps on the path and where I felt my reserve flowing, they sat with inquisitive wonder.

They asked about the labyrinth itself having read a little, though wanted to know the introspective of a walker and I was happy to share my experiences. I found myself called to service in my explanation and listening to what they wanted as I responded about the basics of a labyrinth. It seemed they wanted more, so shared a story and some insights and that is what made a difference.

I noted a sense of dipping of the toes, like the first step of the labyrinth and then a comfort in the walk to share the information desired and the turns from the questions to answer more fully. Deepening with personal introspection neared the conversation to finding the center point that brought their inquisitiveness and my sharing to a conclusion. Asked and answered fount a mutual completion, like the goal or center of the labyrinth.

It takes the walk and the practice to notice how much we operate as the labyrinth over time.

The Intensity of Intention

TLS 365 Experience #201
September 17, 2017

I wasn’t sure what makes one experience more significant than another on the labyrinth, except for possibly the intensity of my intention. Some walks just create ideas and some walks solve an issue or situation. The common factor in either, is in how I am present to the experience. I notice that I move either into a walk with intention to begin it, or walk in a mode of discovery, observing or realizing what comes forth as I do.

As the path progresses, intensity arrives to comprehensively listen more deeply into the experience. I become aware of how much more intently I observe and notice when I walk without intention, as if there would be clues I might miss if I did not.   When I do have a purpose or intention, this point drives what prevails and my awareness into a more significant and appreciable moment of understanding and purpose.

In walking, I realized that intention is always present and choosing to have something in mind or not is an intention. The intensity is fueled by my curiosity and desire to know.

I beginOnce I step in… I Begin.
I begin to feel.
I begin to see.
I begin to experience.
I begin to explore.
I begin to remember.
I begin to understand.
I begin to know more.
I begin to appreciate.
I begin to realize.

I begin to be.
until I come to the end.
Then I complete… and begin again elsewhere.

Peace is Present

TLS 365 Experience #134
July 12, 2017

Today I walk for peace in the world. Actually everyday I walk for peace in the world. I just don’t think about it. When I walk, I just become part of the experience and there is nothing but being in the experience. It is a meditation in this way. Whether I am the peace in my mood or action, how I walk in the world is my reflection. My moments on the labyrinth are a way to reflect that alignment. It is there I connect and remember that peace is always present and only when I am not in it do I seek it.

Sharing is the Experience

I had two labyrinths built and completed on the 22nd of May in 2016. They are a tribute to two of my sisters who were killed.

I chose the labyrinths as a dedication because my sister, Nzinga Janna, first introduced me to the labyrinth. I recall my first walk on these two special labyrinths, where I invited a friend to join me.

The experience was powerful where my words are not. Let the walk, guide.
