The Game is On Foot

TLS 365 Experience #100

The round stones of the Theosophical Society Labyrinth

The Theosophical Society labyrinth makes me want to play.

The round stones that make up the borders bring the idea of the circle wholly into place. Though with so many laid out next to each other, I always want to hop onto the stones instead of the path. The adult in me stays on the path, though the kid in me is leaping from stone to stone playing the imaginary game that I seem to understand will take me on to an adventure and back again.

I’ve hosted a number of programs at this location, and can’t think why I haven’t yet created a game out of the experience?   I imagine it would be both educational and playful.

A Willing Walk

TLS 365 Experience #73
May 12, 2017

Years ago, I wrote an article on the value of finger walking the labyrinth.

I had been busy all week long and finding it harder to maintain a daily walk. As I sat enviously looking out the window, the labyrinth was sitting in the yard and I put my finger up to the window screen and found myself walking the labyrinth, right in the middle of my busy schedule. There is always a way it seems!

Today, a similar experience was occuring as I set up for a retreat. The labyrinth was in the distance, though when I went inside the cabin, I could view it clearly through the upper window and amusingly took the time to fingerwalk it.

There is always a way when the willingness is open.

Two Worlds

From Timeless Productions by David Blonski

Imagine there are two worlds, and for some there is the knowing of many more, though for now just an imagination of two worlds will do. One of these worlds we often find our self in and the other a place we know exists. Some may long for it, some might deny it and some just might make it up differently each day. For some it might be seen as the reality of the border of the labyrinth or the path.

Be great in your imagination and consider the way in which we live, are we some days taking the journey of the border or is it indeed of the path? Reason to question this is in how we might know our daily reality. Maybe it is just a day and then it might be months or years of seeing the world in a specific way. Awakening daily to a world of trials or a world of triumph. We can all speak about this with much more ease than actually living it. That is until we begin to walk in the world as if we had a choice and a conscious awareness of how we carried ourselves and what we believed about our current existence.

This thought occurred on the labyrinth today about the steps taken and are they in the consciousness of abundance or scarcity? From a deeper perspective if one were to not only think it, but go to a place of believing it they might return to the childhood state where anything seemed possible. In the imagination of childhood one returns to a place of simplicity where the world is as big as they can imagine it to be. In that world the eyes grow bigger and brighter and the body begins to hum with an exciting vibration and manifestation becomes easy.

Of course we could walk with the woe we know and be immersed in figuring out the day ahead or behind us solving it like a puzzle where the piece has to fit and logic must rule the way. Life of course presents us with choices and it occurs that IF we were to consider that each day we walk the path, that it might indeed be the border or what if it were flipped and we walked the side seldom seen?

And at the end of the day, we did not dismiss the wild eyed wonder of imagination, yet returned to it the next day. What if….

“Labyrinths are images of snakes guarding the entrance to the other world”
Vladimir Burov Psychologist
