Day 4: January 4
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Definition
Meditation is simple. It is being in the moment of whatever you are doing in a full and present way. Not always easy, but simple in its plan. The flow and cycle of breath can be a simple meditation, though keeping one’s focus on the breath is often distracted by thoughts from the mind. This is where the labyrinth in its walking form keeps one in the flow of meditation as the focus is on the movement where the busy mind unwinds in the traversing pattern and relaxes interruptive thought.
Today’s walk used the double intuipath finger design. Meant for the connection of two, it can serve as a quieting or connection of both hemispheres of the brain. In the dark all sense is heightened, and touch, our first sense, is magnified. Tracing the pattern becomes a synchronized movement that unites what opposes and in the dark the definition of both labor and labyrinth, also become one in experience. It creates a deep listening that encompasses what lays beyond sound. In the dark, feeling is intensified and breath finds a slower more efficient rhythm. It defines the experience, realizing more of the intricate and finite nuances that blend and in this way arrives at an honest and complete expression of the moment.
It is a definition of an honest use of our faculties and an appreciable way to intimately know the lines and patterns of the labyrinth. It is a falling away of everything that is not truth for a great revealing.
What is defined in the intimate listening in the walk of today?

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.
