Labyrinths In Life

TLS 365 Experience #132
July 10, 2017

Labyrinth sewer coverWhen your focus is about the labyrinth, they seem to show up everywhere. From the simple Greek Key design to a fully walkable permanent design;  we can find them in society and nature.

The geometric shapes become more plentiful and seem to be represented in pattern and fabric and over the years I have found them in the most interesting of areas and places I wouldn’t really expect.

Meanders in nature and design, clothing and architecture are really more common than we might think. Look up, look down they are all around.

Walking With The Body

TLS 365 Experience #83
May 22, 2017

I walk a lot.
I like to walk.
When I am on a long walk in nature it is a fabulous thing to be reminded of how natural we truly are. There is a sense of naturalness that I relate to as I walk the labyrinth.

As I move inward in a spiraling way and recognize the shifts in the turn that occur on my journey inward, I recogize the natural way our body flows. The brain and the belly each wind themselves inward to a central location, though along the way there are these turns that seem to take slighly different directions, only to return again moving inward. The fingerprints navigate in the same manner as does the fine circuitry of our inner ears, though looking at the design in our outer ear makes for wonder as well.

When we look more closely at the body design, there is much to indicate that it’s natural operation is very labyrinth in nature. So when I do place my foot upon the path to begin a walk and focus on the whole of my body, I find that everything about me is alert to the steps I take in a most natural way.

The Notice of Nature

TLS 365 Experience #43
April 12, 2017

One of the joys of walking outdoor labyrinths is that some aspect of nature presents itself in such a way that your attention is captured and questions arise.

For example, a twig with two pine cones crossed my path, followed shortly thereafter with a single pine cone that was half-trampled. Metaphors bounced around in my head as I contemplated a difficult relationship that stymied me.

I carried the pinecones home as the prompt for serious soul-journeying where decisioning became clear and flowed easily. Were it not for the walk, would I have so effortlessly dissected the issues and clarified my perspective?

Also often, in the walk I am accompanied by birds, rabbits, ants, cats, hawks, ravens, etc., all of whom provide reminders to be here now and pay attention.

Absorbing the Labyrinth

Hopefully all these ways that I am finding our of value to all of you. In the spirit of moving differently we are also moved differently in cognitive and socio emotional and spiritual ways too. How we are moved in the end might have something to do with how we also moved differently. The story of Insanity is to do the same thing repetitively and expect a different outcome.

The interesting things that are found when moving in different ways are as vast and varied as our minds would care to conceive as it can be something very small and seeming insignificant, or something life changing… it is all about looking for it.

AmazeME labyrinth

The AmazeMe Labyrinth

I came across this image online where the “AmaZeME” Labyrinth was created in a New York Library. Where the term labyrinth is often used loosely in literature to describe a maze or some kind of endless loops of confusion, the truth is that on every journey there is an education and something to absorb.

Imagine the volumes of books, periodicals and media substance that went into the piles and piles of material used to create it. Then imagine being able to simply open to received the variety of materials as you made your way along the path.

The labyrinth affords us that opportunity everyday. Just being open and ready to allow the walk to upload into our existence we can be that much more aware of the very nuances of the simple acts of nature, threads of purpose or what is drawn to the path. Simply using the word “absorb” we suggest a simple idea to draw into and deepen the meaning…at least for today.

I absorbed and it was the wind that I noticed. Mostly because it was subtle and light. It was the gentle exchange between movement and non movement throughout. At one point I simply stopped and listened and in the listening I let go and allowed the wind to direct me noting where on my body it directed and the course it plotted. It meant I didn’t walk all the paths and instead charted a new one. It made all the difference in my day and was a strong message for me about something that felt forced.

A deep breath with ahhhh – ha at the end,

Lynda
