Day 149: May 29
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration
There is this way and that way, the right way and the wrong way, the spiritual way and the scientific way… and an abundance of directives that move us one way or another. The word way is simply another form of the word path. When first learning labyrinth facilitation, there is a respect and reverence to holding space for others that can hold many captive in the how of the way or processing the manner in which a walk is to be accomplished. The HOW of anything invites hundreds of ways and like the many paths in each design of the labyrinth, learning the ways tends to be about listening and service to the needs of the group. Though the real exploration of imagination is in finding that there are many more ways than that.
In walking the labyrinth, like walking in life there is the way around, the way through or even the way out and where each of us may offer The Way of the Walk, it is only one way to consider. Individuals find the best discovery when they find their own way. It is in finding the way that works that is the key as all else is just the way that works for someone else. When we can find a way that works for all, we will have really found something!
We have been exploring the way of celebration in our month and while it can be unique to each, focusing on celebration, communicating about it, practicing it and experiencing it have brought realizations of appreciations that can deliver us onto paths of possibilities and ways of wonder into the journey of human capacity… and that is way cool! May your way be blessed with a way that works!
On this 149th day…
Celebrate the ways of your days to discover your many paths and where celebration focus has taken you.
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:
- 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.
