Day 113: April 23
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement
Just as the amusement can be found in your day when you are of mind to look for it, the labyrinth can be discovered in the most interesting places too; often that can be an equally amusing encounter to appreciate as well. In today’s adventure both amusement came and insight in discovering first the four way pattern in the flooring of an apartment. The landlord shared that it had radiant heat flooring so the floor would always be comfortable in the winter time. At first glance the grain of which the tile moved adjacently to the next tile in a different direction brought the back and forth traversing of the labyrinth paths to mind. In viewing four of the squares, the traversing pattern changed direction and focus when moving around the four squares, similar to the concept of the Roman Labyrinth with each square completing before moving on to the next.
This design moves back and forth again in each square for a forward and seemingly backward motion that propelled a forward motion. The traversing is not unlike the radiant coils that lay beneath the surface of flooring and only after completing the design did the illustration of the flooring arrive to demonstrate a similar pattern. When we follow a feeling and flow with it, we can often learn how on track with a certain path we are. In those moments, we become most honest with ourselves in what we are capable of and often humbled by the synchronous factors that come together to remember to trust ourselves more. On this particular day, the intuitive met the creative and together the radiant experience brought a new warmth to the path laying under our feet without our having realized its value. How amusing to focus and discover how much is truly apparent about what lays just below the surface.
On this 113th day…
Discover the patterns that appear today and recall where else these similar patterns show up in other parts of life.
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!
