Day 98: April 8
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement
The holidays of the Christian Easter and Passover have completed and are followed by the Orthodox Christian Easter that begins today as identified by the Julian calendar that sets the date after Passover. This Easter is the result of the excommunication of the Pope of the Catholic Church and the Eastern Patriarch of the Orthodoxy back in 1054 AD where the adoption of the Gregorian calendar by Catholic and Protestant Christianity set a new date for the Easter holiday. Easter is a time of resurrection and freedom added by the newness of Spring reminding us to begin anew and rise.
The use of the Greek Key is a great appreciation for the consistent pattern that moves the tide of flow. It comes from the ancient river Meander and symbolizes the natural order of movement; and when it comes in the form of a circle, it is a reminder of how we are connected in the bonds of friendships and families. The Greek Key has been an important iconic geometric pattern that flows throughout Greek history and is a symbol of infinity. The custom of the red eggs denotes the blood of Christ and the designs can be as simple as a pure red dye or as different and intricate with patterns depicting the cultural basis and beliefs of the different Orthodoxies.
It was fun to create this element of time with 24 keys to walk each hour of this day in one instance to elevate the flow of possibility that exists in review of what we can make free with the honesty of this year’s program and amusing to add the design of the labyrinth to the depth of meaning that the red eggs symbolize humbly honoring what we can set free and realize within ourselves.
May the joys of connection, rising and infinite flow enhance your walk and exploration of ancient meanings for conventional times today.
On this 98th day…
Meander in the ease of natural flow in your walk and notice how much more at each your natural flow becomes.
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!
- 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!
