Day 11: January 11
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Definition
The idle moments can provide a useful reflection of what we do in the waiting periods of our lives. Today was met with doctor calls and hospital visits. Lots of time in between and no labyrinth to walk in the waiting, though there is always a way when we get clear about our intentions. Labyrinths in hospitals provide a benefit to waiting family members, patients, staff and community in a variety of ways. On the other side of town, there is a labyrinth at one of the hospitals so the pattern has been established and the labyrinth made on paper today might well become the labyrinth of this hospital in the future.
The test of time and patience walked in my fingers today and with the reflection in being honest with myself about expectation and defining the results, the clarity of the walk wasn’t about whether I would find function with my time or more patience, it was about how much I would create with the time in between. Once the question of being honest with the circumstance and myself was on the table, there wasn’t a need to search; leaving only wide open wonder to explore with what was available.
A suggestion to walk with:
Between drama or dreams, which is honest?
TLS 365 Experience 2018: The Year of Living Honestly
Whether it’s a daily walk, teaching others, sharing an experience, expressions of art, building or design, we explore the questions of what brings us to honesty in our use of the labyrinth.
In a world of emerging truth, the labyrinth is a great experience to discover more of what is right and true about ourselves and humanity. Join us in sharing the honest moments it reveals.
Daily unfolding the process:
So far we have a daily blog and an unscheduled mid month podcast to explore the monthly focus. Share this week at: 365Experience@labyrinthsociety.org
