Qualities of Giving

image of the segment one star labyrinth Its not often that we think of the qualities found in the gift of giving. To observe in the past year, the art of others who have build installations, artistic statements or simple designs from a place of purpose for a specific reason, each held characteristics and elements relative to their purpose in giving. Some made personal declarations, others made statements of the world and still others hoped to give inspiration for change and development through their contributions. 

Gifting a sister with a special labyrinth design on her birthday and in doing so inspired to create designs for others for their special occasions, giving becomes the art offering of ones abilities for the benefit of another. Helping a community to grieve by bringing them together to build a labyrinth in memorial is a gift that continues to give to the community to sort out meaning on the path of the labyrinth. 

Exploring a month for expression of what emerges from an experience gave a choice for the voice to articulate evidence of explored new dimensions. In each instance of giving this year, qualities defined themselves in  our steps. 


Daily Insights of this 337th day…
Define the characteristics and qualities of giving in your walk of today.

Review 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.

Welcome December

Day 335  December 1
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Honest Gifts

Welcome December

We’ve reached the 12th month and the 335th day of this inspiring year of many changes. We are completing the final quarter of the year (contribution) and embracing an interesting final 31 days to review, renew and redesign our appreciation of the labyrinth, and of ourselves in the gifts of realized potential the year has brought forward in the Year of Honest Living.

The year started as magical and allowing and has continued to presence much more than any expectation could have foreseen. As we begin this final journey of the year, engage with the daily experience for wonderful steps that bring a new look at reviewing. We’ve covered 11 monthly focus points and four quarterly ways to engage new awareness of gifts, education of abilities, application of expanded capacity and consideration for the ways we can understand purpose and contribution in a life fulfilling way. As we understand what we can bring to the labyrinth in design, programs, art, education or expression, we take away much in the realization of this useful tool and observe how synchronous it is to our own life journey.

Below the format for the review is listed in weekly applications of what we have discovered in our year long daily experience to adopt in this month. Consider what is real, true and aligned to be purposeful and useful to move more in life, and you can review your position about Honest Living more appreciatively for the ease and flow it brings to life. This is the month of gifts, and in this review, there will be much in the way of giving and receiving well.

The Path of T

Day 305  November 1
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Grateful Pathways

The Path of T

The Letter T as a Labyrinth by TheAmusedMuse.com

Walk the labyrinth today, design one, build, lead a group, share your writing, express some knowledge, invite another to join you or just walk alone and savor the first letter in the expressive word of thanks. Consider the beginning of your thanks and how it is expressed on the labyrinth. Think of all your thanks and all of the paths in front of you. At the beginning of all your thanks is the first path that begins a place for you to tell it. Who are you at the beginning of your thanks?

T is for Telling, tell others of the path of your gratitude

From a Thought Place:
Walking this simple labyrinth design of the T today was easy, quick and Thought provoking. It saved Time, felt Triumphant and reminded of the Truth and the feeling of Trust all with an effortless stroll from path with gratitude in the expression of thanks. Twas a telling thanks of truthful testimony.

  • Consider your thanks from a place of thought.

On the Trail:
Walking the labyrinth today and keeping this simple beginning in mind, the words of thanks showed up on the walk, in the same way a few moments had, in tracing in from the page. Seven paths of thanks to grow the idea of increasing it more in each step taken. Telling of the Thanks grows with Thanks as a Focus and not keeping it to ourselves. Tell yourself, tell a loved one, tell a friend, tell an acquaintance, tell a stranger… thanks is powerful. 

  • Consider the trail of thanks you have paved and the one you’ve left behind.

Of the Design above:
By now, one might begin to tell that design is an inspiration for me, whether words, art, programs, organization or the path of the labyrinth. Taking objects or people and assisting them to their highest use is a telling tale of transformation that contributes and enriches the planet. Having made several alphabets of labyrinth design. T is a Tall Thanks of gratitude for the insight, inspiration and abilities that keep coming. 

  • Consider the ways you have designed a path of thanks and how that path leads to you and from you.

Daily Insights : On this 305th day…
T is also for Testimonial. Walk in the thanks you are, give and receive and let each path grow in the thanks you tell of, leave behind and design.

Thresholds

Day 115: April 25
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement

The labyrinth of doorwaysWaiting brought attention to the environs of the room in which participants acted as waitees, each with a unique way to pass the time. It seems when we wait we forget the opportunity to simply communicate. We have the commonality of why we are waiting and what we are waiting for, though engaging people into simple conversation can sometimes seem a challenge. Finding no need to push beyond the boundaries of receptivity, the mind can be entertained with an engaging experience of imagination in the use of what surrounds us that we don’t often see. What became present was the doorway.  59 rings displayed the natural origin of the wood in age of the hallowed tree that it was produced from and amused by the circular nature of the rings, the design of the doorway became a new threshold experience for the labyrinth.

Passing time with amusing pursuits invited the creativity to see beyond mere rings and into the wisdom of this doorway. It brought opportunities to discover more beyond its stationary position in the wall and left to imagination and inspiration of what possibilities might lay just beyond the door frame. Always inspired by doorways and the invitation to live on the other side differently, each doorway holds that opportunity. Yet, why wait to go through with waiting being the operative word for the day; seize the potential of play and beyond the mind of design and like this new doorway, waiting can be a productive and potential building bit of amusing insight. The labyrinth can be a doorway to unlimited possibilities.

 

On this 115th day…
Step over the threshold into the labyrinth today and notice what is opened, how wide its opened and what is welcomed. Notice the doorways of your day afterwards for an insightful day of possibility

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!

Formulating Your Year

Day 108: April 18
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement

The Tax LabyrinthThe tax year officially ends as of yesterday with the due date for filing returns. In the happy aftermath of relief or returns, how many played with a few deductions, had the joy of discovering loopholes or  got excited over new exemptions?  It feels good to find new ways to have fun with your forms and make the most of what could otherwise prove to be a taxing experience.

This is a design created last year when the filing frenzy became a little too much, taking time out to play with the 1040 form, it solved a few puzzles with a finger walk and became a way to remain true to the process while developing creativity in the confines. Inspiration as well as insight showed up to make the filing experience one that was honest, satisfying and amusingly complete.

On this 108th day…
Walk in the aftermath of your taxing experience, reflect and consider what you might do to be more creative in the coming year?

The Inspired Uninspiring

Day 95: April 5
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement

The linear labyrinth of NebraskaNebraska is the gateway between two important personal destinations. Selected for its time saving feature, the duration from one point along Interstate 80 from the Colorado border to the Iowa border is a straight point from end to end. On either side of the expressway lay open fields with an ever expansive open sky that appears to make it last forever. The state of humor might well be Nebraska as the drive from west coast to the midwest encounters the uneventful nature along this route and creates cause for imagination to occupy the monotony of what seems an endless voyage. The view from the expressway appears to be a moving picture that simply does not change for just under 400 miles.

Finding the humor in this day was discovered in finding inspiration in the uninspired surroundings. Drawing a labyrinth included the straight six hour journey, though realization of the spiral occurred in the use of the off ramps that provided a circular reference for leaving the highway to refuel, spiraling back  afterwards to resume the trip. The off ramps provided opportunities for food, sanitary necessities and stretching the body and with each, what seemed dull, suddenly had lively possibilities.  The double spiral at the top suggests a centering point before returning again…. or freedom to the other worlds of Iowa, Colorado and beyond though only temporarily as there will be a return home again.  The repeating process through the double spiral and back down the straight highway of spiraling off ramp diversions awaits when ready or time permits a brand new path elsewhere.

Making inspiration out of the uninspiring has made an amusing difference in perceptions of Nebraska.

On this 95th day…
Discover an imaginative way to walk the same path differently. Be amused by your imagination and the variety of ways you find.

In the Beginning

Day 23: January 23
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Definition

In the beginning, there is a point of intention, though sometimes we don’t always notice it. We want to walk, practice or just be in the experience and so we come to the walk in whatever way that serves us knowing, though not always knowing the truth that sits with us. We may ask a question and have clarity around it and walk to discover, though in that beginning moment the answer is already understood.

The walk serves to support, open and supply us with evidence that helps us to open and realize more perspective or reason beyond any doubts we might be questioning.

The walk we take helps us to believe more in our own ideas, abilities and inspirations. Each step becomes a clarity of purpose and the more we are open to it, willing and ready, the more likely what is at our beginning can be more visible to us in the ending. Our walk exercises our belief, truth and trust in what we know and in our own way, we find out the subtle honest nuances of who we are and what we are capable of in the steps we take.

Today’s walk in the desert was realized in the steps taken, solidified in the turns made and transitioned into a trust in reaching  the center as a place of holding space.  It deepened with perspective and materialized in the facets of realization that now sparkled with variety by the time the walk came to a close. At the end what was true in the beginning  remained and what accompanied it was an honest evaluation of its full value.

A suggestion to walk with:

How is your beginning more realized at the end?

TLS 365 Experience 2018: The Year of Living Honestly

Chapters of Inspiration

TLS 365 Experience #258
November 13, 2017

We might never know who we affect when we share the stories and experiences of the labyrinth and it isn’t really important to know, more to share and grow in what we know by doing so. Sometimes, we do get a glimpse of the difference it makes when we share.

A client who was curious about the labyrinth, met me on a quiet local labyrinth and found that was where she wanted to grow in our time together, so we met regularly and used the labyrinth in our understanding as its location offered a place of refuge where we were undisturbed. Over the time together, many ideas were raised and issues resolved. I could see how the results of the walks played into our sessions regularly. As she moved successfully into her own steps in life, guided by her own resilience and understanding, I would receive messages from time to time about success moments, though not much about the labyrinth or if she still used it.

So it was both surprising and delightful to hear from her in depth, learning how she had enjoyed the labyrinth in our sessions but fallen away from regular use in her daily life. It wasn’t until she began writing and fell into a slump that she remembered one of our technique’s and by using it, found herself back out on the labyrinth. As she walked, the last three chapters for her book were revealed. Even greater,  she realized now the depth of some of our earlier work and how the labyrinth was much more than a tool for coping and has since found inspiration a way to walk.

Bonafide Fun

TLS 365 Experience #245
October 31, 2017

The Labyrinth of Chicken Bones, Cobwebs and things that Go Bump in the night... LAT2010It’s always fun to work with kids, they have wonderful imaginations and I often find their creativity inspiring as it is playful, limitless and speaks to their truth.  As Halloween approached I asked a teacher to gather chicken bones and secured more at the local butcher shop during the month. Chicken bones tend to be small so work well in the building of labyrinth in pieces. The teacher brought the kids into our nearby center for an afternoon of discovery with the idea of appreciating the imagination and inspiration and in a world that can be unnerving for kids;  finding the fun of tethering on the edge of the unknown.

On dark table tops the illuminated circles brought light to work with as the kids played a game in teams and got to pick out the bones from a bucket as they guessed correctly. We played a variety of games with the bones and part of the fun of the day was in building a labyrinth with them.taking away the myth and the monster to add magic and meaning.

The Voice of the Labyrinth

TLS 365 Experience #229
October 15, 2017

Expressions on the labyrinth, a voice for the labyrinth. LAT2012Having painted the outline of a classical design onto a canvas cloth for a walk, I had intended to add other features after the walk completed. There was much in release and discovery in this walk that was offered and participants in the walk asked if they could inscribe their thoughts on the labyrinth.

It seemed like a good idea and though not what had been planned or considered for this labyrinth, it felt right to allow. People wrote messages of hope and inspiration. There was encouragement and truth and a heart that showed up in many places. Peace was a natural expression and the messages of the journey began to be inserted around the labyrinth.

Where I had ideas of what would be added to this, walking and allowing the process to unfold is a bigger and better teacher. Since that time of inscription, others have naturally been drawn to share something on this without being directed. This labyrinth has a voice and expressive quality and it allows what first came out of the experience to continue.
