Day 129: May 9
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration
Remembering the Equestrian Riding Club that came to demonstrate the agility of the horse on the labyrinth. It was quite a demonstration of grace that allowed both horse and rider to come to a moment of truth in the elegant ease of which both navigated the turns in flow with the labyrinth’s path. There is much wonderful work done with the horse and the labyrinth and much to celebrate in the accomplishments of creativity and innovation that continually find new uses for this ancient path.
In my travels I have met individuals who rehabilitate horses using the path of the labyrinth and one might think they are wide paths, however the path is purposefully narrow and the size of a regular labyrinth. This really shows the honest ability guided to its fuller potential. There are others that rehabilitate people with improved health, elevated emotional fortitude, reconnecting physical ability and restoring cognitive function on horseback. When they take the horse to the labyrinth, what has been reported is that both rider and horse experience beneficial improvements.
On this 129th day…
Celebrate your own navigation of the path and step into awareness of the improvements made in your physical body, attitude, aptitude and overall connected realizations.
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:
- 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
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
