Day 62: March 3
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Discover
The most ancient spiral in our universe is being discovered and researched at the Australian National University and known simply as Galaxy A1689B11. It appears to be 11 billion years old and is considered to be very rare, as spirals are not often found in the early stages of Universal origins.
The importance of this ancient spiral holds a key to unlocking the sequencing of galaxies in their formation and expansion as expressed by noted astronomer Edwin Hubble in 1925. In a spiral galaxy the arms that extend and wrap around the center are categorized by their tight circular formation or by its looseness. Stars are formed in the arms and the center is known as the great bulge. It is where old stars are located and black holes exist. One can perhaps better understand the nature of labyrinth design in this tight or loosely structured circular circumference and relate to the black holes with infinite curiosity of what seems to be similarily in the center of the labyrinth; perhaps as a vortex of possibility.
Taking in the vastness of this ancient universe and our spiral shaped Milky Way galaxy, steps on the path today were more infinitely more expansive in consideration. While the majority of galaxies are spiral, there are also elliptical and irregular varieties; each circular in nature. It makes the labyrinth’s similar qualities more interesting and curiously significant. Walking into the labyrinth offers a universe of possibilities and finding a black hole of infinite wonder in its center can become a repository for release or an endless supply of imagination. To walk larger and become more than we currently know is the ultimate in honest realization and whether it is a small realization or a large one, the surprises of discovery always make it more delightful and insightful.
A suggestion to walk with:
On this 63rd day…
Walk each step larger than the step before in infinite wonder and expansion relating to a larger universal design.
As it is now the third month of the year and our last month of growing awareness before we delve into the ways of education, allow this month be one that creates both the light hearted discovery and profound realization. How can you create more awareness with the labyrinth personally or in the ways you share with others? Where do you notice a spiral effect that takes you to the point or away from it? Be on the lookout for the spiraling nature this month.
In the 31 Days this month offers, become aware of the daily realizations that you create and discover. Walking daily creates compound interest in what you look forward to and discover each day. Let March become your month of expanded capacity as you walk to make each day and adventure in exploration of what more you can explore. Seek to spiral into new and inspiring realization and whether it is rich and profound or light hearted and amusing… be open, walk with intention and you are bound to come away larger.
One can realize and find much in the depth of understanding that awareness offers us, though when we look forward to realization of that depth and awareness, it can inspire new ways of appreciation and discovery in both our process and capabilities as we are constantly growing, no matter what age. Invite the element of surprise into what you realize as it can lift what you discover into seeing a bit more than before. Notice the spiral effect of how you move from realize to surprise and make discovery more significant and true.
