Within the Losss

Day 57: February 26
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

 

Hearing of a loss today was a heartfelt reminder of what was valued, appreciated and engaged. In this gift of life, nothing is guaranteed or deserved. There is nothing we are entitled to or any real expectation until we assign it and when we have opportunity for such a life review, the grateful moments appreciate lost life much more than any thing not completed or accomplished. Those appreciates convey the true worth of life, always in what was accomplished, and more importantly how we love and were loved.  If we have contributed well, we might see evidence of why the world was better with us in it, though for many, that wisdom is more readily found in the people left behind with their memories and feelings. That is what is so important about gatherings of goodbye, it is the opportunity to share, speak and survey the many perspectives of a life.

Today I walked on the loss, the life and the contributions that were honest and heartfelt over the years and by the comments of others, grew a little more in the understanding of this individual who graced lives in her own way. Urgency arises when we see a life that had many years left to explore, though at the core of it all, each comes into this life for a prescribed amount of time to explore and expand in their own unique timeframe and style. Accepting and appreciating are the two things that might be most heartfelt and true. It is what I walked away with and what grew in perspective for the remainder of the day.


A suggestion to walk with:

On this 58th day…
Walk in your own appreciations and acceptances made, noting the truth and expansive nature in doing so.

February’s Focus

As it is the second month of the year, enjoy two opportunities… discovery and realization.

  1. Discover your Love capacity:
    This month’s 28 days will focus on how we are loving the moments we are creating. Learning to be “in love” with our focus, it expands who we are beyond the partnered relational aspects and into the focus of loving what we offer the world, who we are in community, relating at a higher level to everything and everyone; and most significantly,  elevating the relationship we have with ourselves. Prepare for a wonderful experience of exercising the power of love with the freedom of honesty to realize a greater look at possibilities and potential n a delightful way. Discover how capable you are!

2. Realize synchronous evidence:
Inspired by the variety of heart shaped labyrinths, this month capture your experiences with images of the heart. Be on the look out for where the synchronicity of the moments where your heart is in focus and then look around to see where you can find the shape of a heart in symbol. Your awareness will expand and you just might be surprised to find that when we look with an open heart, we can find it in reference near by. It does require a bit of imagination, though the findings are wonderfully worth it. Share all the heart shaped labyrinth images you find with images, links or comments and I will be happy to post the images and moments.

Virtual Sharing

TLS 365 Experience #281
December 6, 2017

When in the busy of my day online, I would take a few moments to regroup walking a virtual labyrinth on my computer at work. There was an online site in particular I was more partial to, as it gave a variety of walks and it only added the option to include music on the journey. This left the experience of the walk totally up to me.  Where other online sites that popped up over the years were well intentioned with messages, guides or stopping me with reflections; simply sharing the design as the creator intended and leaving the walk up to me became a noble gift.

In turn, I shared the site with others in the office.  There would be a random moment of familiar music that brought a smile to know that another was finding similar benefit and a moment of peace into their day. Grateful for the designers who share their simple gifts that give so much to others like myself.

Community Love Walk

TLS 365 Experience #274
November 29, 2017

Walk of Community, Walk of love, light, healing and blessings There was such love for our friend in the community beyond family and friends that we all discovered quickly, as people began to show up at the hospital making our private family waiting room grow so much that we had to be moved to a larger space.  We waited with many emotions present as our loved one clung to life support and as it became news, more people appeared.

As there was a labyrinth outside, a few of us decided to create a walk of prayer and hope and invited those in the waiting room to join us. We asked for all to have hope, send healing wishes and blessings with light and I have to think what it did for our friend, it also did for those who walked. They had to allow and bring it up in themselves to send it on and on this very tragic and scary day, we created community for our community member.

We are so grateful for this labyrinth that brought us together in such a purposeful and special way. It gave us a place to do something with the grief and a way to turn it around into something better for everyone. I have to think that this body of love and light of hope made all the difference as our loved one found her way back to us.

Something Waiting

TLS 365 Experience #259
November 14, 2017

Traveling, I look for labyrinths on the path of where I am going. Ever grateful for those who are paving the way in the world by creating, designing and developing these small journeys, I bring something of myself to each and take something awat from each. I began noticing what comes to me on the path, whether it is a leaf, stone or feather that found its way into my journey, I note its significance and take it to the next labyrinth as a gift of being and from what appears on the next keeps the cycle of going. It is an interesting adventure knowing something will always be waiting for me on the labyrinth.

Story Walking

TLS 365 Experience #220
October 6, 2017

My mind opened a little more today in attending a walk of the labyrinth with a local woman who was part of the Labyrinth Ministry at a nearby church. Happy to see a ministry for the labyrinth, I just wanted to gather with others and walk what was on my mind.

She told a tale that was woven into our walk of days long ago in mystery and lore, though it fit perfectly with the idea of walking with its message in mind. Forgetting of the pressing need to figure out what had been on my mind, I enjoyed the idea of walking a story and later on in the day, that which had pressed was revealed.

Truly it was a part of the story then and now. Grateful for the experience, being open and learning something new from another.

A New Rhythm

TLS 365 Experience #158
Aug. 5, 2017

Many tines in walking the labyrinth I have had thoughts on my mind as I entered. Some were questions of what I wanted to know, others were of people I wanted to pray for or focus a concern for and well wishes. Other times I just wanted to sort things out, and often just to walk and become aware of what occurs in feeling or ideas that emerge. I’ve come to the labyrinth with a busy mind.

On this day, I came to the labyrinth with a chant that I wanted to express and memorize. As I walked I began the verbalization and continued to repeat as I moved into the walk. The chant became fluid the more I moved and by the time I realized the center, there was a rhythm to my walk and the chant. The stillness in the center seemed to capitalize on what was required of the moment and the quiet prevailed. As I walked back out, the chant seemed to be lighter and more relaxed. It wasn’t something I was saying, it was something I was becoming and when reaching my end, I leave the labyrinth grateful, peaceful and knowing.

The Temperature of Gratitude

TLS 365 Experience #141
July 19, 2017

It is so hot that the air seems to be sitting on top of a furnace unmoving allowing the atmosphere to swell and take up what might be left for natural breath.

I came outside this evening in hopes to cool a bit, though it is just as hot outside it seems and as I sit wondering of a way to cool, I look out upon the labyrinth looking for a switch to relieve the intensity. I am used to asking questions of the labyrinth and find a gratitude of the heart in what it answers, knowing it is but a sequential structure for my mind to relax and inner knowing to flow, though it is nice to be able to extend the gratitude outward and get my heart and mind reprogrammed a bit.

It is in this thinking that I rise and move toward the labyrinth in this question of cooler solutions. I walk in and consider that maybe stillness wouldn’t work up a sweat, though I move on. As I move more in quite and subtle ways I begin to consider coolness. As I traverse the paths I remember my body in cool and relaxed ways. I seem to find a calm and a cooler perspective by the time I have reached the center and with much gratitude I begin a coolness meditation with my focus and breath as I walk each pathway and when I arrive at the end.

I find that this discussion has changed my inabilities and found an inner reserve that adapts, speaks and blissfully relaxes the anxieties of the heat. Mind and body are relaxed, ready to rest and appreciating the opportunity to question and answer.
