The Ides of Humor – Mid Month Reflections

Day 105: April 15
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement

Mid Month Reflections ImageToday marks our mid month check in and as we reach the center of this month we can take a look back at what we have created in the way of personal experiences from our walks that have brought more light heartedness to the time spent. We can also explore any ways in which you shaped your walk, designs or experience in amusing ways and what came in the way of honest enjoyable insight. We asked a third idea this month in expanding how we shared our experience with others through design, teaching, walks, building, artwork, or alternative methods in which you educated yourself and others with the labyrinth in amusing ways for honest reflection.

April's Banner Year of Living Honestly 2018April’s Focus

Let this month unfurl your creativity, spontaneity and jocularity. It feels good to feel good and while we have been conditioned to shush our good times, let the labyrinth be our own private creation station of amusement, enjoyment and playful experiments. This month educate with amusement and see how much farther you get. Have fun and be creative.  We have three opportunities to education your potential with amusement this month that involves either your personal walk, your ability to design and how much you can learn by sharing. On your Mark, Get Set…Go!

  1. Innovate – Walk Amused
    In the 30 days that grace this month, play with the way you personally experience the labyrinth. Let this season of education be one of personal bests and enjoy finding a new way to be innovative, creative, inspired and amused in your personal experiences. I’d love to see what you come up with!
    Please share your wonderful experiences! 

2. Create – Design Inspired 
To date I have created 95 different labyrinth creations and designs since the beginning of the year, let that inspire you to create something new this month that is inspiring and firing for your imagination. Einstein said that playing with ideas was the highest form of research and this is an education for all of us.  As you walk in new ways, share your designs as I have done with mine last year and this. Perfection isn’t what we are after, amusement is! I look forward to seeing what you come up with! I will toss out lots of inspiring ideas… stay tuned daily.
Share away and become a glad designer instead of a mad one!  

3. Relate – Share with Care
One of the best ways to learn anything is having to teach or explain it to someone else. Whether you facilitate others, teach or simply share with a few, spend the month discovering amusing new ways to help others get more out of their walk with a lighter attitude and a more earnest enjoyment in what you share. Anything you want to know more about, share and this month share with a fun flair and notice how much more you actually begin to understand. You just might find a side of yourself forgotten. To receive all that, be a great giver.
Share what you discover!

Ides of February

Day 46: February 15
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

Today is the walk of reflection of what the month has defined in the growing identity and honesty of who we are and what we are purposefully here to do.  It is again, the Ides of the month and a time that marks our half way point through this month of love.  Where the first two weeks bring a suggestion and walks to consider that suggestion in each day, the second half of the month takes what we discover, realize and appreciate and brings the dimension of reflection and purpose to a broader perspective.

We might think of this month as the first half of walking into the experience and the second half of walking out of the experience. How much more aware and evolved do we become when we have had the first half to consider? I’ve often heard that children have second half growth spurts in their annual aging as if the first half of their year was studying, reflecting and contemplating the world and the second half was diving in and exploring what their awareness could be.  Where the concept of discovery and honesty is both simple and deeply profound, appreciate what you do discover and discard anything that isn’t about your growth and discovery.

 

Here are a few prompts to consider in mid month reflection:

How has what is right and working shown up in your walk?
What is more true today than it was when you began?
What greater appreciation of your walk and yourself do you have?
What has changed in your attitude since the beginning of the year?
What has changed in your life since the beginning of the year?

Always feel free to join in with your thoughts, sharing and offerings that bring more wisdom to this experience.   Correspondence:  365Experience@labyrinthsociety.org

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!

Last Definitions

Day 31: January 31
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Definition

Thirty days have gone by in this new year and as we come to the last day of the month that defines what honesty is to us, today is a day to review your findings. What did you create this month in the Year of Living Honestly?

Our first quarter of this program brings us into the focus of awareness on the labyrinth and in our yearly theme.  A simple walk can often produce so much.

Remembering that our perspective is all about what we can champion in our lives as we discover the power of honesty as the great step into discovering more of what we are capable of.

Here are a few thoughts to consider from the past 30 days:
1. Where did you find honesty in your walk?
2. Where did you find honesty outside your walk?
3. What made you most aware of what you are capable of?
4. What kind of affect did your experience have on you? Others?
5. If you were to define honesty, what examples could you give from this month?
6. Is your definition of honesty different after this month than before?
7. What was your most memorable experience this month?
8. What do you know more about now than you did before?
9. Did you  enjoy using the patterns, metaphors and exercise of the labyrinth in your discoveries?
10. What is your definition of honesty?

A brief review of the month:
Interesting ideas to consider and promote thought to walk on this month.
What does it mean to define honesty? Defining your Kairos time. Intimate listening. Observing what rises in honesty. Defining your design. Walking in solution. Where do we put our discoveries? What do we gain in honest service? Realizing the amusing and real moments. When are the honest moments. Dreams or Drama? Healthy transitions. Meaning assigned. Is it true? Mid Month Reflections. Where freedom and honesty meet you. Efficiency from honesty. Making things better. How mistakes help.  Working as whole. Utilizing acceptance. Honesty as a user friendly practice. The beginnings of endings. Earth Integrity. Predawn Honesty.  Walk with what you don’t have to find what you do. Tuning in. Dance with the truth. Patterns and metaphors in your day. Inspired honesty from what appears dishonest.

Kairos Moments

Day 3: January 3
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Definition

Today’s walk moved as Kairos time, the opportune time, which for me was found in the gentle hours where the conscious mind arrives in degrees much like our movement defines our walk experience. To the predawn mind, the soft fluidity of the marble that formed the portable personal labyrinth made for an excellent choice in connecting time as moment with purpose. It was an honest time for authentic moments. In the flow of finger turns, the labyrinth brought a coolness that awakened the spontaneous instance with reminders of definition. What moment could provide more honesty than this?

As we are often reflective with thought before or after a walk, these moments in the walk are the definition of Kairos time as the experience provides a source for past or future deliberations. These moments are without complication and in true form. They define an honest moment and experience.

Explore the Kairos Moments in your day today

Observations of Childhood

TLS 365 Experience #99
June 7, 2017

Every time I take a class of students out onto the labyrinth, something magical occurs.
I share the experience with adults often, though when children come to the labyrinth there concerns really get to the heart of the matter and their understanding evolves quickly. It seems as if the labyrinth is a natural resource for a child and what comes out of them is a sense of creativity and understanding that has a refreshing honesty to it.

I think when adults walk the labyrinth they discover that sense of childhood clarity again and relate to what is true. With a lifetime of carrying things, it just takes us a bit longer to set it all down. When we do, we are rewarded with this turning of ourselves it seems into something that sits at the heart of our being. That is when we seem most magical.
