Day 12

January 12, 2019
Month of Beginnings
Quarter of Consciousness
Let’s Walk the World, a focus of contribution

  1. For Your Walk:
    Consider what and how you honor the experience of journey today.
  2. For Your Experience: 
    Notice how aware you are of the steps you take and why you take them alone and with others.
  3. Share:   Share your message
    When we collectively offer the ways to begin, someone sees a new idea, thought or experience to enjoy. Today, share images, art, ideas, designs, tips, facilitations, building strategies, ideas from your book, poems, teachings, etc.

Today’s Experience:

We are called to take this path in the company of like minded companions.

Our joint task and sacred obligation is to effect radical hospitality with each other, so each of us may be fully welcomed for who we are and who we must become together. We do this in the spirit of compassion and with the intention to honor both  our individual and collective journeys.

January: A Month of Beginnings

With a focus on sharing this month and the ways we set up our plans to the actual way we place our first step, beginnings can offer us a way to realize our outcomes.

  1.  Explore what beginning is like for you, personally or professionally in all you do.
  2.  Observe yourself in this first quarter of the year as a contribution.
  3.  Walk, design, teach, build, express yourself in sharing an experience this month.

Courage of Conviction

Day 347  December 13
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Honest Gifts

Segment Three: Fortitude
Days 347-352

Courageous Convictions

Five pointed star labyrinth image for Segment 3 by TheAmusedMuse.comIn a year long theme devoted to living into our honest ability, it would be remiss to miss a focus on fortitude. Courage is a natural feature of fortitude and when we think of what it represents in the walk of our lives, we can discover it by being honest about what we truly hold value for and what we honestly love. Those are the things that bring our courage to a conviction level. 

When we love and honor, we find our greater resolve to stand up to anything that would threaten its well being, just as we would a loved one. It is where courage is called to an internal place to stand behind what we choose from love and persevere through what is necessary to see the course of a natural path completed. 

Standing up for ourselves is most likely more difficult than standing up for another as a personal stake is involved, though when there is value, there is conviction to stay on the path and make more meaning in the steps from beginning to end, no matter how the course winds. 

Our year long adventure has brought this message to a heart place as each month, trusting and allowing the design to form was much like the design of the labyrinth, one path, one turn and one point at a time.  In considering the design of the Chakra labyrinth, it had always been purposeful to walk it differently and its interesting never to have walked one that began in the standard fashion. 


Daily Insights of this 347th day…
Note the ways in which you stand up for yourself, no matter what in the turns of your walk today.


December’s Focus

Refresh, Renewal and Redesigns of Your Year

31 daily walks. ideas, topics and considerations for personal appreciation to professional sharing will be focused in this month utilizing six five-star labyrinths and a summary day to encompass what the magnitude of what has been discovered this year and bring it forward as gifts realized in the ways we gave to ourselves and others and received for ourselves and others. Following the five pointed star labyrinth this month in five points:

  1. Follow along Daily or as often as you can
  2. Consider what you have created or developed this year in regard to honest abilities
  3. Reflect on the five day segment focuses throughout the month with those abilities
  4. Review, journal, create or develop your own reflection in a daily experience
  5. Share your experience and add to the Daily Wisdom of the 365 Experience

Review the Gifts in Five Day Segments:

    • Giving to ourselves as well as what we give to others is a reminder of what we do possess in gifts, capacity, ability, skills, and talent that bring us fulfillment. The first five days will focus on what has been developed in this year and what it gave.
    • Inspiration in the inner motivation we possess, the focus of looking back at our discoveries to notice over the next five days about what inspired our capabilities into actionable realizations will be a great topic to select meaningful moments this year.
    • Fortitude in the courage, resilience and mettle that have risen this year when in consideration of the ways we understand, use, and apply the labyrinth and relate it to ourselves either personally or professionally, the next five days will be reflective.
    • Talent is something everyone possesses, discovering natural gifts using the labyrinth in a variety of ways reveals depth of talent to reconsider and perhaps discover something new over the following five days.
    • Skill is learned, developed, and practiced through desire and the more we can apply it in various ways, the more we comprehend with new levels of learning. The last five days will be an opportunity to renew, remember and redesign skills.

Consider the weekly and daily focus presented this month in review and rediscover through the many ways you have used or ideas below that you can use the labyrinth with:

• Personal Walk
• Group Walk, Program, Workshop, Education, etc.
• Designs, Artwork, illustrations, photos of labyrinth you walked, etc.
• Building concepts, tips, techniques, design ideas, etc.
• Personal Development, Guidance, Growth orientation, etc
• Writing, poetry, creations, installations, etc.
• Learn something new about yourself, others or the labyrinth this month.

Day 331  November 27
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Grateful Pathways

Week Four: Counting Your  Blessings

To learn what we possess and are inspired to explore is our life’s purpose, to share it is a blessing and fulfillment. To learn of our own blessings in a more complete sense is to honor and hold them with humility. When we know and apply, we can share more fully and gratefully from known experiences. The more we appreciate, hold with great fullness and give thanks for the blessings that are a direct result of our gratitude and a completing part of it, the more we can share from a whole perspective. 

Sharing is a blessing and blessing is for sharing. We become more of ourselves when we share of ourselves. As we live on a planet of over seven billion in population and growing, we know ourselves more when we care to share.

the sharing path of the blessings labyrinth by TheAmusedMuse.comThe Fifth Blessing: Share

Begin with a personal walk and share yourself with the labyrinth as you share the labyrinth walk with yourself. In this way it is a complete appreciation of what it offers married with what you offer to create a completely new and inspiring experience as a result of being fully into the experience. When we know how to do this for ourselves, others easily benefit from what and how we share more of what we know. 

There are many unique designs of this unicursal path that evolve the ancient beginnings with contemporary endings. Had they not been shared in the world, we would not have the appreciable blessing of experiencing them now in permanent, temporary and portable opportunities. Their differences express unique approaches of a common thread made richer by sharing principles given and blessings received.  

 


Daily Insights : On the first path of Appreciation in this 331st day…
Share yourself with the experience to feel the fullness of your walk.

The H Pathway

Day 306  November 2
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Grateful Pathways

The H Path

The Letter H as a Labyrinth by TheAmusedMuse.com

H is the second letter in the word of thanks, so today enjoy a second helping of gratitude. Standing as a labyrinth itself in this design, you can enjoy its simple trail of sloping lines or walk any labyrinth with the idea of gratitude and the expression of it. Let the bottom of the H become your centering.

H is a pathway for Helping

Help others to know and navigate the path with your assistance, education or insights. Helping naturally elevates the expression of thanks for the helped and the helper. Walk into the labyrinth in the the ways you have been helped and walk out with the ways you have helped others. It naturally brings a desire to thank, raising the essence of our gratitude in a simple walk.

A Few H Words to consider to raise the expression of Thanks:
Take a walk around the labyrinth of your choice today with the thanks in mind and consider how these seven words that begin with H might assist you in the way they convey thanks. Use one on each circuit of a seven path labyrinth and walk mindful of the way they serve and the thanks they naturally bring.

Honor is an esteemed place where gratitude is known, enough thanks and we honor the essential nature of gratitude more fully.

Having might also feel an abundant and expressive of thanks. Having is a general indicator of being in the possession of something and when we are, we often extend our thank you.

Happiness can bring a sense of gratitude forward by the jubilant feeling presented in being happy. We say thank you more when we are happy.

Heart focused is a place that aligns with gratitude as when our heart is of concern, focused and centered, thanks is not far away.

Healthy is something we are all grateful for, as with our health we can do more and better. It is reason enough for great thanks.

Humility is a great source of uncommon peaceful presence in the face of great experiences. It is a place for a heart full of thanks.

Heroes play a role in shaping our lives as we follow those we respect, admire and hold gratitude for. Our heroes big or small hold our thanks given in showers.

 


Daily Insights : On this 306th day…
Consider those you honor, heroes, who have healthy humility and heart and you will know a happy walk of thanks in this day. As you walk in with these, see yourself as these on the walk back out… and know greater thanks.

Design of Sacred Union

Day 160:  June 9
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Exploration

The Sacred union Labyrinth by Robin Clayfield
The labyrinth has become a basis of union for the Woodford Folk Festival of Queensland. It was designed by Robin Clayfield in 2011 and has been used to bring the spirit of the feminine and masculine together. The Folk Festival creates its design with tributes and ritual each year and walk with the hope of strengthening relationships. Robin cites her inspiration from designer Mark Healy and whether an individual walks for better self understanding or couples walk intent on building more solid ground, the sacred message is in the way it unites two differences into one common thread in its special five circuit path design.

The Festival even takes place at the end of one year and extends into the beginning of another to bring the thread of continuation in its design. The festival adds pieces to the design over the length of the festival including archways, flowers and lights to bring a ceremonial feel to the reconnection of souls. As it is also used in marriage encounters, it brings together couples of all make up and might one day be used to connect groups, communities and differing factions within each for a peaceful harmonizing of what is true within each. Walking the path of our program explores the possibilities of ourselves, though it can also open up the ideas and connections for others.


On this 160th day…

Explore the relationship that comes to mind, what questions do you have of it… walk with wonder.

Interactive Map Progress
A great Interactive experience this month will include a google map to track where we have been and what labyrinths you submit.

Earth Integrity

Day 24: January 24
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Definition

To hear the story of creation from Jeffrey Bale is to hear an honest man’s endeavor for truth. Sharing the story of the creation of the Islandwood Labyrinth in Washington State,  Jeffrey shared the respect for nature honoring each stone for its significance and placement in the thousands he instilled into the heartfelt crafting of his design. Honoring where each element came from and thankful for their participation in the humble beauty of his art, it gave participants a deep regard for the single placement of their feet upon the pathways.

The sheer quantity of stone and story that poured into this design will remain a historical element of unassuming  wealth borne of the artistry of one man’s relationship with the integrity of nature’s gifts. Its natural abundance comes in the humility of its design and its modest residence nestled just off the roadway trailing down a very short distance to discover a serenity in seclusion amidst the lineage of tall trees.

One does not often encounter such a deep and abiding honor of an encounter with Earth and art in this way. It’s memory will live long and its meaning will live into a higher regard in the way of development and creation for myself and most likely those fortunate enough to have experienced the venerable honesty of this artist’s message and mission.

A suggestion to walk with:

Focus upon where and how you use your Earth this day.

 

 

TLS 365 Experience 2018: The Year of Living Honestly
Whether it’s a daily walk, teaching others, sharing an experience, expressions of art, building or design, we explore the questions of what brings us to honesty in our use of the labyrinth. 

In a world of emerging truth, the labyrinth is a great experience to discover more of what is right and true about ourselves and humanity. Join us in sharing the honest moments it reveals.

 

Daily unfolding the process:
Next Mid Month 365 Experience Gathering on February 15th  to explore the monthly focus. Share your posts from your walks and experiences with our theme this week at: 365Experience@labyrinthsociety.org

Grandma’s Walk

TLS 365 Experience #107
June 15, 2017

Yellow Rose Labyrinth for Grandma's 99th BirthdayToday is Grandma’s birthday.

She would have been 99 years old and while she wouldn’t have liked the old part, the 99 years would have impressed her.

I walked on this day with Grandma, mindful of yellow roses and a sweet feeling that she seemed to share without even knowing it. At first I felt alone, though soon knew she was there walking along side me, smiling. She holds my hand and my heart and while I seem to wonder about her and miss her at other times, today I know today she is my heart and mind.

I just wanted to walk and honor what she meant to me and somehow what was heavy on my heart infused unexpected emotion in the winding of the paths.  With Grandma in mind, the sudden comfort and outpouring of love was like a blanket that held me in the moment. Somehow it came and passed quickly, and curiously helped me see the next step in many ways.

I wanted to walk for her, and she ended up walking for me. Isn’t that just like a Grandma!  I think when we remember, honor and love, loved ones are always with us to give something and open to receive what we offer.
