Karmic Truths

Day 30: January 30
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Definition

We have a first hand look at the world of honesty from the spam invasion that seems to have found the comment area of our blog. Thanks to those who are sending earnest commentary, questions and sharing. The spammers send complimentary notes, though raise all kinds of ethical questions of taking content with little regard to our purpose here. Whether it’s a technology invasiveness or human transgression, we can find the world around us appears to have moments of dishonor and little regard for our earnest efforts;  walk to re engage what is true, what can be done and what it is that we really do have to do. Sometimes these things take care of themselves, other times we seek assistance and in other situations, we find the lessons of the experience to be telling.

Invited to a few marketing forums already this year, it is surprising to realize how many individuals do not use their own content and rely on others to say what they mean. From idea to implementation it appears possible to have others create your life for you to sell to others.  When participants in my workshops spoke of “stealing” my ideas and activities, it came as a surprise to them that I offered a better way that might keep them more honest, I let them know we engaged to inspire individuals to their own truth and ability. It does seem we are a world asleep to our believing in our own ability and honestly living into what is possible. When one takes on the idea of honesty as we have here,  it is a likely reality that we’ll encounter the opposite side in our experiences. How and where we walk with that can establish the depth of our determination to simply realize something that will service us as much as it will service others. When we discover what we are all about, small minded acts seem to become trivial. We all have our own karmic path to travel and paying attention to the bounty that shows up on ours is a full time experience of greatness.

A suggestion to walk with:

How do dishonest actions inspire your honest ones?

Learning Service

TLS 365 Experience #165
Aug. 12, 2017

Having traveled the breadth and width of Illinois years ago on my own labyrinth tour, I discovered there were about eight labyrinths built by Boy Scouts who were each independently earning the highest distinction award of Eagle Scout by building a community labyrinth.  It surprised me that there weren’t any built by Girl Scouts here or that any had endeavored to develop this for their Gold Award. Though in understanding that their aren’t as many High School girls that stay in scouting as boys, it made more sense.

The Girl Scout labyrinth Project Illinois 2013So, years later when approached by a small group of Girl Scouts who were in eighth grade and High School, I was delighted to mentor them for a year before we actually built the labyrinth for our community.  It was an honor to help them understand how they might personally use it and where it could serve a community.

We held many sessions to learn and appreciate more about the value they were considering offering. While not for their Gold Award, they did receive a badge award for their dedication and service. As they became more familiar, they began searching location options, drawing community interest, securing materials and considering design and purpose. As they planned and prepared they drew in support and assistance and discovered requirements and ideas for what to do once implemented.

The building took only a well planned week to plot, dig, surface, lay materials and develop and in all, members of the community were on hand to service and support the project throughout cheering the girls efforts from start to finish. Happy to be a part, it was great to see community come forth to accept, appreciate and support the labyrinth and the young ladies who learned much about service in the process.
