Pouring Honesty

Day 38: February 7
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

Asked today about the not so honest moments and the question of how that fits in this program offers a gentle reminder to love yourself well. We will find many areas where we aren’t as honest as we might like to be, though this program assists us in achieving better results by noticing what happens when we are.  Making that our focus and practice, we move into something considerably more effective as we shift to moving in our life instead of being stuck with worry or blame about what isn’t.  Being on purpose with what we are doing and what is working offers freedom to work with solutions.  The doors to what we can do then fling more widely open and we can spend time focusing and interacting with what is possible and use more of our abilities and capabilities well.  Infinite possibilities lay beyond that and we can’t really get to them when we are looking elsewhere.  Love and honesty seem to go hand in hand and with a focus on the great capacities of love, honesty is just inspired.

When you fill your cup with what is working it displaces what isn’t and a continual pouring creates continued results. Let your cup runneth over with what is true, worthy and great about what you do and who you are. That’s when the doors open to capabilities, possibilities and solutions become your optimized practice and what’s honest is what’s real.

Today’s walk met with this principle of pouring more into the walk and where love is an eternal faucet, the group became awash in fluid commentary of the peaceful change and the heartfelt connections made by leaving the tap running. Several noted that by habit alone they felt like turning off the faucet to conserve when they arrived at the center. Feeling the greatness of the experience they hoped to conserve the rest for later; though no sooner were the words out, when realization occured of the futility in stopping infinite flow and a pattern of doing just that. What a blessing to walk and realize the fullness of our lives in such an honest appreciative way.

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 38th day…
Love how you flow in all your steps today, remove your finger from any dike that blocks and just receive what pours naturally.

February’s Focus

As it is the second month of the year, enjoy two opportunities… discovery and realization.

  1. Discover your Love capacity:
    This month’s 28 days will focus on how we are loving the moments we are creating. Learning to be “in love” with our focus, it expands who we are beyond the partnered relational aspects and into the focus of loving what we offer the world, who we are in community, relating at a higher level to everything and everyone; and most significantly,  elevating the relationship we have with ourselves. Prepare for a wonderful experience of exercising the power of love with the freedom of honesty to realize a greater look at possibilities and potential n a delightful way. Discover how capable you are!

2. Realize synchronous evidence:
Inspired by the variety of heart shaped labyrinths, this month capture your experiences with images of the heart. Be on the look out for where the synchronicity of the moments where your heart is in focus and then look around to see where you can find the shape of a heart in symbol. Your awareness will expand and you just might be surprised to find that when we look with an open heart, we can find it in reference near by. It does require a bit of imagination, though the findings are wonderfully worth it. Share all the heart shaped labyrinth images you find with images, links or comments and I will be happy to post the images and moments.
Care to Share and Share to Care!

Seasonal Path Order

TLS 365 Experience #247
November 2, 2017

The autumn season in the Northern Hemisphere provides the opportunity to move beyond distraction. It is a time when many things not originally intended appear on the labyrinth.

Leaves of Spring and Summer release and deposit different stages of their change to join the labyrinth. The winds take up their wiles and pick up simple objects to carry them over. The rapid growth of summer’s weeds can also leave behind the dried and dying residuals between the cracks. Where our once clear and present path can be strewn with a number of objects, it is a time to discover what it is that meets us on our journey through the labyrinth.

It is interesting to look at the synchronicity of what emerges onto our path in a metaphoric note as we realize the days of summer have gone, leaving remnants of the change for us to step in stride with, negotiate, remove or avoid.

The walks of autumn can provide us with possibilities, problems or perspectives and sometimes all three at once.

Showing Up

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.

Teach and Learn

TLS 365 Experience #121
June 29, 2017

I wonder how many stop to consider the many experiences and ways they have shared and educated with the labyrinth. It is a moment of appreciation for all we actually have learned by what we share.

Aside from personal development I continually appreciate the many ways the  labyrinth becomes teacher. I have coached others with the labyrinth in group and individual session and experience. There are great meaningful messages in our walk and our talk that ease individuals into new perspectives and a sense of appreciation for each to realize their own discoveries. It is like a path of permission where we both teach and learn.

A Dialect Detected

TLS 365 Experience #93
June 1, 2017

Love the feeling of a newness. To come into something for the first time or with new eyes.  Having made my travels include labyrinths found in the locations I visit, I will also travel the extra miles to find one nearby when there isn’t one waiting and include them on my trip.

In this way it is sometimes telling of my travel and purpose, laid out in metaphor  waiting for me to walk its message into my mind. But what I find is that when I do take to the road for what is work or to get away, the one thing that takes me the farthest is knowing that I included a visit to the labyrinth.

To me its my personal talk with the Earth from different perspectives and it creates a kind of labyrinth dialect in what it has to say.
