A Treemendous Heart

Day 43: February 12
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

Today was another natural day and where it may be snowing in the East, the warmth and sun bringing pleasant days to the desert are welcomed joyfully.  Outdoors with a small group exploring labyrinths and natural areas of the local outer community, trees became a fascination as most stood erect without leaves. Their bark was smooth and the intricacy of the thin branches created an atmosphere of lace that hung from the limbs in a such a way that one understood the natural artistry and insight of jewelers and weavers.

As we hiked along to the labyrinth, a most magnificent tree made its appearance as we came around the bend. It stood spreading its wealth of ages in a circle that seemed to have been cleared just to allow its lineage the opportunity to expand and stand in all its elegant form. The ground beneath was completely open and rock free and it appeared that circles of interested individuals had sat speaking to the elder wisdom from time to time. The group was taken with the spectacle and so we decided to shuffle a labyrinth under the welcoming branches and allow for our heartfelt discussion to emerge like the impending season that would bring the leaves.

Feeling called to the center, the space between the two main branches opened to a small center and placing a hand there, the smoothness revealed a closer look. A heart shape had grown into the very heart of this tree. Looking closer the natural rings were similar to our natural pathways in the labyrinth, though not all as connected. It left its impression and a small design came to mind to appreciate the naturalness of this day, this discovery and a symbol of where the heart is.

Branch out and find your natural roots in your walk of this day, when you do what shows up?

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.
Care to Share and Share to Care!

Exercising Variety

TLS 365 Experience #283
December 7, 2017

Coming out to find some air, the labyrinth in the garden seemed to invite some blood circulation with a walk. Rubbing palms together and pulling the scarf around my neck, I enjoyed the cool snap of crisp air as I entered. Thinking of it as an exercise, pumping arms and marching steps became part of the movement.

As I was getting into the movement, another joined me on the labyrinth. I had a moment of hesitation as it seemed a private experience and interruptive of another’s quiet time. Just as I was about to surrender my large movements, the other woman did the same arm circles and called out, “Great idea!”.  As we both continued to exercise the labyrinth, we were joined by others who had been watching from inside and soon we had to watch out in our thrusting of arms and legs, not to make a harmful connection.

It became a cheering experience of movement and amusing connection that invigorated all of us. It was also a chance to realize a different experience of the labyrinth, rather than the quiet mindful walks I have known. Realization on the labyrinth comes in many forms and today I moved myself in a variety of ways.
