TLS 365 Experience #144
July 22, 2017
I recently shared the labyrinth with a family of friends I had been visiting. There happen to be one in the nearby park so we walked over and it was a first for all. They knew of it, though had not thought it more than an ornamental part of the gardens. I shared a little about it in the questions they had before we left and let them find their own way as we came to it. As I had led groups in sharing information and walks in the past, I had not realized how the personalities of people show up in their walk as clearly as I could see it with this family. The difference I realized was in how I knew this family.
As each took to their walk respectively, I could see the contemplativeness of one and the watchfulness of another. Where one had shared an indecision, the walk appeared to note the tension and release that came. Where youth were added the swirling energy of the youngest was an amusing perspective of difference and the headphoned, head down, approach of the teenager who appeared to slap the ground with his steps spoke volumes of his autonomous steps in taking ownership of his position in the world. While it was marvelous to see the personalities come alive in the walk, it is also a privacy to respect and a great insight into how we all show up in the world as we walk. Knowing this has given me a greater awareness and appreciation for the gifts of this application.
