Fun Receptions

Day 92: April 2
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement

Fun ReceptionsAs we move into this new month and season in our program and year, the events of yesterday included the Easter Holiday as well as the beginning of National Humor Month and April Fool’s Day. The rising of the Blue Moon seemed to be a message as well to take opportunity when it occurs and to rise. It is time to simply be reminded of all we are honestly capable of. Humor helps us to take it all in a little more lightly and to delve into an insightful intelligence that humor provides.

In honor of a whimsical look at life and the recent holiday, rise and multiply with this design of light-hearted levity. Allow it to assist in adjusting the rabbit ears of reception. Listen more keenly, enjoy what is available, and let what comes your way appreciate more richly in your life. Enjoy the fun.

On this 92nd day…
Walk with a new learning of finding amusement with what is available in your day. Tune into receive and allow it to add to your day’s adventures.

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!

Welcome April

Day 91: April 1
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement

National Humor Month Begins on the LabyrinthWe find ourselves in the second season of the Year of Living Honestly, discovering the truth about what we are capable of in our walk of focus on the labyrinth. We move from becoming aware of our capacity, to educate with it and be educated by what we chose to do with it. The next three months give us the opportunity to honestly expand turning possibilities into probabilities. Use the labyrinth to educate yourself and also to educate others, as the more you share, the more you become aware of understanding something new.

April is National Humor Month and one of the proving points for great intelligence is in the ability to use humor. It sharpens our wit, invites a greater perspective and elevates our attitude and changes the way we relate to everything. Those who find the amusement in life use more of their capacity and potential as they understand the genius of play and light hearted living. Our world is looking for answers and when we have an elevated perspective, we can access them more efficiently for more effective responses.

Today is April Fool’s Day and while a great many pranks and good natured stunts are being orchestrated, it reminds us that we all want to have reasons to smile more and feel good. Let’s find the fun in our days and ways of walking the labyrinth. Remember that ancient stories tell us of the dances that took place on the labyrinth in ritual, tradition, art and expression. Labyrinths with children and in schools remind us of how to play with it to explore what is possible, just like our year long program here. Might I say here that jokes can be subjects, though enhancing a sense of humor is brilliance in action! 

Innovate, Create and Relate 
You may have noticed that I have been creating daily designs, so far it just felt good to be creative and after each walk, a new idea emerged. The creativity of this year of living honestly is inspiring and I hope it is bringing more of that out in you.

See below for the details of this month’s activities with three fun fabulous options to expand the truth about what more you can discover about yourself when focusing on amusement… just watch your abilities awaken. 

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 91st day…
Celebrate your humor being. Walk and remember how good it feels to feel good, increasing the feeling by being honest about what really feels good.

A Fool’s Labyrinth

TLS 365 Experience #32
April 1, 2017

The April Fool's Labyrinth

April Fool’s Day and a reminder of the Great National Humor month upon us. Where a sense of humor isn’t automatically granted, we might appreciate building more of one this month in the passages of the labyrinth.

It is often quite amusing to see ourselves in the metaphor in which we arrive and when we give ourselves permission to chuckle, we appreciate a healthier sense of ourselves.

To fool is to play and to play cleverly and contribute rather than detract is our education.

Welcome to the second season of the Labyrinth and the theme of Education for the TLS 365 Experience.

April Fool’s Reflection

April heralds many things including the practical joke. The legend of April Fool’s origination might be considered back in 1392 in the Canterbury tales by Chaucer. He quotes a date of March “thritty two”, which would translate to March 32nd or our April 1st.   Or it might come from the new Gregorian calendar initiated by the Pope in 1582, where many ignored the new calendar and continued to celebrate the New Year’s on April 1st instead of January 1st as we do currently.

A design I created for National Humor Month

There are many ideas as to how we began this tradition of pulling a fast one in the name of fun and some of them have been quite amusing, the left handed whopper being a favorite or when Big Ben went digital. Behind it all is a little sport and fun and when the jokes are harmless, the fun is found more heartedly.

April is National Humor Month and so fitting when we have our US Tax day situated squarely at mid month… beware the Ides of April!

Let this be the month you pull a fast one on yourself, shift your walk to embrace something new, fun or just different than normal. Walk backwards to see where you’ve been, dance periodically down a path or two or start at a different point than the beginning. Let this be a month of getting out of routine.

Frequent a little fun and put some frolic in your step or add a little whimsy or light heartedness to your design if you are a creator. Enjoy 30 days of new creation in whatever way you walk, skip or sashay on your path in a metaphor of mirth.  This month, of the 12 words of the year focus, regards reflection… see your reflection in the walk and if it has become a little too serious, let this month represent a little of your light hearted nature.

Skip… and see where it takes you.

The April Fool’s Labyrinth…No Kidding!

JestersLabyrinth_WbkgToday one will do well with a sense of humor. It is after all National Humor Month and anyone that would seriously put tax day in the same month as April Fool’s Day does have a sense of humor.

Humor is a wonderful tool for coping and when we can combine it with the tool that is the labyrinth, there is a meditative coping or an exploratory mirth consciousness. As Humor is a function of the mental cognitive mind, it is usually thought of in the terms of joking and good-natured revelry. Laughter will be your emotional response and your body, mind and soul will appreciate you all the more for enjoying yourself with it.

Today walking the path, breathe in and enjoy the start of bringing on the levity in the daily walk.  Remember when you used a little good natured ribbing to get you through or how you’ve grown your personality with a little humor and walk the labyrinth as a humor being. You may be aMazEd how enjoyable the walk becomes.

Of course as April Fool’s Day reminds us to let go and joke around with pranks and situation that catch us off guard, I could be kidding about all of this now.
Fun and fortune for you that I am not.  Though maybe you might… The legend of the labyrinth as retold humorously by you!

Laughing Along singing my song…No Kidding,

Lynda
