Day 133: May 13
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration
Celebrating Mother’s Day is an opportunity to celebrate the many mothering moments in our lives. Whether we gave or received, it wasn’t always about the relationship between mother and child, it can also be the act of mothering and caring for others and ourselves. The nurturing of Mother Earth is a great example of an abiding love we can have for our planet. Whether you celebrate your maternal relationships or simply the nature we all have to care, let it be a celebration of how we each have the honest capacity to care and share with each other.
On this Mother’s Day a tribute to Mother Earth’s labyrinth in the Red Rock began the fullness of the day and caring for my own aging mother. My daughter’s who I was fortunate to spend more time with during my visit inspired this labyrinth of the feminine symbol. Where the three rings can signify Mother, Maiden and Crone, or any aspect of the divine three, to me it is the trio of femininity within my family in counting myself and my two daughters and somehow there is always a heart at the center of a mother’s love.
On this 133rd day…
Celebrate your ability to care and share in realizing the moments when you have done so and felt the joy in receiving a gift in what you gave.
Life is a celebration to explore in the next 31 days. With the idea of walking the labyrinth and its tri-focus on releasing, receiving and reflecting, let’s shift the perspective to one that walks in with appreciation, finds the honest realization from each day and walks out in celebration. Observe what 31 days of this focus might reflect and how it elevates our life condition.
Four focus points to expand your celebration of this month’s experience:
- Share your ideas, in your personal experiences, how you share the labyrinth with others, art, design or method of construction or in other ways that it may be utilized. Let others know about this daily experience and opportunity by sharing it. Find us on this blog and on the Labyrinth Societies Facebook page
- Join our Mid Month Dialogues on May 15th at 2pm CST for a lively look at what you have created and will create in the idea of celebration. This month’s theme was a direct result of our last month’s Mid Month Dialogue!
- Participate in the daily opportunity of this educational focus of your personal journey, how you lead, teach or share with others, and what you create for contribution or purpose with this theme.
- Remember that our theme is about finding our greater capacities, abilities and true realities in being honest with our potential. We focus on what we can do as it is inherently more useful and productive.
