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 Begin

TLS 365 Experience #194
September 10, 2017

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 smile.
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.
