Welcome May

Day 121: May 1
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration

Celebration confetti and balloons rising from the labyrinthIn this year of living honestly we look at the ways we can evolve our understanding of ourselves, our purpose with the labyrinth and our connection to others in the way we share it or comprehend larger meanings. We focus on quarterly concepts such as the awareness we’ve appreciated in the first and the concept of education for ourselves and the way we use the labyrinth with others in these three months. Our focus changes to add ways to appreciate that education differently and while we used the power of amusement to widen our focus, this month’s exploration focuses on the idea of celebration.

Life is a gift to celebrate daily. Life also offers us adversity and many of our former lessons have focused on overcoming and surviving that time for appreciating the celebrations becomes the thing we do for special occasions. Living the idea of celebration through appreciation and realization is an opportunity in the next 30 days to walk differently, share differently and care differently in the month of  May. Look forward to sharing innovations and creations, sharing in our mid month dialogues and taking steps to create a celebratory experience in this month.


The Month of Celebration, Appreciation and Realization
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:

  1. 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
  2. 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!  See Below
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

Marriage Equation

Day 83: March 24
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Discover

The wedding of two young souls brings together much joy in the moment of joining and an evolution of time in the greater perspective. Attending the wedding of a long time soul friend and celebrating the child we have watched grow into a woman now become ready for a new journey; the design of this day turned into a personal gift for her marriage. It was designed to hang on the wall and finger trace in the times of the marriage when a reminder of what each brought to it might bless the tears or cheers of the moment.

It’s simplicity made perfect sense with a focus on the spiral, the forming of the Vesica Piscis and the joining of two. The marriage is indeed the third element two can create and what better place to put a marriage than between the rings of power of the polygon and the sacred harmony of geometry and nature. With a plane curve marrying a straight line all possibilities are open. What an equation!

 

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 83rd day…
Walk with one thought in mind and along the way add another. What third thing develops as a result?

March’s Focus

As it is now the third month of the year and our last month of growing awareness before we delve into the ways of education, allow this month be one that creates both the light hearted discovery and profound realization. How can you create more awareness with the labyrinth personally or in the ways you share with others? Where do you notice a spiral effect that takes you to the point or away from it? Be on the lookout for the spiraling nature this month.

  1. Realize
    In the 31 Days this month offers, become aware of the daily realizations that you create and discover. Walking daily creates compound interest in what you look forward to and discover each day. Let March become your month of expanded capacity as you walk to make each day and adventure in exploration of what more you can explore. Seek to spiral into new and inspiring realization and whether it is rich and profound or light hearted and amusing… be open, walk with intention and you are bound to come away larger.

2. Surprise
One can realize and find much in the depth of understanding that awareness offers us, though when we look forward to realization of that depth and awareness, it can inspire new ways of appreciation and discovery in both our  process and capabilities as we are constantly growing, no matter what age. Invite the element of  surprise into what you realize as it can lift what you discover into seeing a bit more than before.  Notice the spiral effect of how you move from realize to surprise and make discovery more significant and true.

Mirrored Effect

TLS 365 Experience #270
November 25, 2017

There are times when I used to think that I could not do one more thing. Life can get pretty overwhelming and whether it is in all the things to do and complete, or in all the things I need to be, it just felt like there was no point in going further. It is when I learned to step back and evaluate what I am doing and whether it is worth it, that it became the first step all over again. Either I walked away from what wasn’t necessary or purposeful or walk toward what I began with a new appreciation.

I realized this one day on the labyrinth as I kept finding distraction and losing the path. I started over a number of times before realizing that I did not need to start from the beginning. That made me realize I could start from where I was at and go where I wanted..or not even go at all.

It was no surprise to me to see my kids in this quandry in figuring out homework, projects or just doing something they thought they wanted to do. When I began to change my direction, so did they. Of the things I learn on the labyrinth, this one opened up the gift of a mirror.

The Gifts Present

As the senses rise…

On my walk today there was a feeling of presence in all things. Somehow today I tuned in and found the growing as if it was happening in each step all around me.

The weather has made it’s own presence and what a rush of color that has shown up as a result. In walking my eye caught vibrant hues from the flowers along the fence that only a week ago were a mere suggestion.

As I walked by the lilac bush the gift of its scent stayed with me and each time I looped back near the bush I had the enjoyable reminder to simply breath in what was present.

Today’s walk was a simple blessing and a gift of presence.
