A Case of Compassion

Day 364  December 30
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Honest Gifts

Segment Five: Skills
Days 359-364

Considering Compassion

Image of Star Labyrinth for Segment 5 of Skills.Of all the skills we can improve and engage our natural abilities with full honesty, compassion is a skill we may wish to embrace more of. It is an essence that is a container for our character, feelings and how we regulate ourselves with it for the well being of what we relate to. 

Sympathy is the status of feeling for another in their hardships, empathy is a way to endorse another’s experience by standing in their shoes, yet compassion offers us a place to elevate ourselves to and invite those who might need a hug from humanity into. With compassion everyone is elevated and its quality is so expansive, that it may also engage others who are nearby in an energetic embrace. 

Tapping into the potential of our abilities through our skill capacity will always be a beneficial improvement with a walk of compassion in our life. It helps us to care in an efficient manner and provide effective strategies that become magnified in our ability to be steadfast in our own grounding while acknowledging what might not be. 

Our walks of the labyrinth, designs, facilitations, creations and offerings this year have provided 364 days thus far, in cultivating a relationship with it, ourselves, and our abilities that are yet to be discovered. This message of honest living has employed a great sense of compassion that sees past being right or wrong and asks us to reveal ourselves and what we wish to be. A lesson in personal compassion.


Daily Insights of this 364th day…
Observe what compassion feels like. Notice how much more of it has risen this year in the discovery of honest abilities. 


December’s Focus

Refresh, Renewal and Redesigns of Your Year

31 daily walks. ideas, topics and considerations for personal appreciation to professional sharing will be focused in this month utilizing six five-star labyrinths and a summary day to encompass what the magnitude of what has been discovered this year and bring it forward as gifts realized in the ways we gave to ourselves and others and received for ourselves and others. Following the five pointed star labyrinth this month in five points:

  1. Follow along Daily or as often as you can
  2. Consider what you have created or developed this year in regard to honest abilities
  3. Reflect on the five day segment focuses throughout the month with those abilities
  4. Review, journal, create or develop your own reflection in a daily experience
  5. Share your experience and add to the Daily Wisdom of the 365 Experience

Review the Gifts in Five Day Segments:

    • Giving to ourselves as well as what we give to others is a reminder of what we do possess in gifts, capacity, ability, skills, and talent that bring us fulfillment. The first five days will focus on what has been developed in this year and what it gave.
    • Inspiration in the inner motivation we possess, the focus of looking back at our discoveries to notice over the next five days about what inspired our capabilities into actionable realizations will be a great topic to select meaningful moments this year.
    • Fortitude in the courage, resilience and mettle that have risen this year when in consideration of the ways we understand, use, and apply the labyrinth and relate it to ourselves either personally or professionally, the next five days will be reflective.
    • Talent is something everyone possesses, discovering natural gifts using the labyrinth in a variety of ways reveals depth of talent to reconsider and perhaps discover something new over the following five days.
    • Skill is learned, developed, and practiced through desire and the more we can apply it in various ways, the more we comprehend with new levels of learning. The last five days will be an opportunity to renew, remember and redesign skills.

Consider the weekly and daily focus presented this month in review and rediscover through the many ways you have used or ideas below that you can use the labyrinth with:

• Personal Walk
• Group Walk, Program, Workshop, Education, etc.
• Designs, Artwork, illustrations, photos of labyrinth you walked, etc.
• Building concepts, tips, techniques, design ideas, etc.
• Personal Development, Guidance, Growth orientation, etc
• Writing, poetry, creations, installations, etc.
• Learn something new about yourself, others or the labyrinth this month.

Intuitive

Day 297  October 24
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Message, Metaphor and Magic

image of double finger labyrinth and Intuitive metaphor by the Amused Muse

Topic: Intuitive

A non conscious state of perceptibility offering an opportunity to
explore more of our natural ability.


The  Message:

A natural part of every individual’s faculty is to trust, tune in and turn on an increase in capability. Intuition is our guiding directive that to some may appear at first as a guess, hunch, sense or feeling, without prior conscious comprehension or reasoning, though with use and application, it can offer higher level functioning. Instinct seems to be more pattern oriented and based on familiarity that makes a guess. Educational and scientific studies have researched and tested precognitive understanding and for those in highly interactive decision making skills, such as in law enforcement, it surfaces as a highly functional skill to develop. Developing intuitive games and play for potential ability and function, the labyrinth becomes a tool for development and practice.

The Magic: 

We walk the labyrinth to become better acquainted with our intuitive quality. The more we relax, deepen and surrender, the more we are able to grasp a sense or direction of an inkling of an idea to follow. By turning and unwinding as we spiral to a central point, the more we may allow what seems hidden to magically appear. 

 


Daily Insights : On this 297th day…
Step into an unexplainable understanding today and allow your paths to reinforce a simple knowing without reasoning.

Energy

Day 289  October 16
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Message, Metaphor and Magic

Image of golden labyrinth design with Metaphor of Energy by the Amused Muse 2018

Topic: Energy

Moving energy with energy for energy


The  Message:

Always in existence, energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can be stored however as potential energy. The movement of energy is Kinetic and where it changes from one form to another including gravitational, nuclear, electric, chemical, elastic, atomic, mechanical and sound, changing from one form to another is motion and Kinetic. As everyone moves, whether it is through thought, brain activity or bodily function, kinetic energy is an essential function. When we walk, we identify ourselves uniquely as studies show that our gait is independent of all others and can be used as a source of personal identification. Technology has even jumped on this idea to use it as a way to authenticate ourselves. This makes for an interesting walk on the labyrinth, knowing we move and transmute energy, while we uniquely identify ourselves in the walk, with the walk and as the walk, differently than any other in the world.

The Magic: 

A walk on the labyrinth allows us to feel, reveal and heal the energy to a more purposeful form and function. It occurs in the simple energy field of our movement on an energy field to produce a third frequency of energy. Like rubbing sticks together to create a flame appears magical, it is simple science, yet the effect is energetic magic, making something appear from an apparent nothing.

 


Daily Insights : On this 288th day…
Observe your Kinetic energy of movement and as you walk in step with it, open to the energy found moving in the labyrinth, and as you walk in step with it, realize the third frequency of energy present.

Legend

Day 288  October 15
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Message, Metaphor and Magic

Partial turns on a SouthWest Labyrinth of stone in the desert with Metaphor of the Legend

Topic: Legend

An epic tale of time unfolding in stories remembered, shared
and verified by the heart. 


The  Message:

Embellishing a tale to explain its origins or purpose that leave a lasting trail in triumph or truth are the epic narrative of legend. The labyrinth has left many a legend of curious telling in the origins, purpose and practice that it provides. One must find their own way of this winding path for their own truth telling. Legend creates a story to fill in the blanks and adds heroic qualities to explain the unexplainable. The steps that create a personal legend on the labyrinth can reveal epic truth without need for embellishment. It can be a simple walk of truth or a revelation into the triumph of a new honest realization of what is possible.  

The Magic: 

Larger than life realizations have occurred on the labyrinth and while epic in proportion of the moment, can be captured in the heart as a marker of time when possibility came to meet potential and the unbelievable became magically believable. These are the moments when the HOW of life arrived in an unseen manor and championed an opportunity.  The path of the labyrinth has a magical way of stealing what isn’t to reveal what is. 

 


Daily Insights : On this 288th day…
Let your walk of this day pave a path of epic realization.

Thresholds

Day 115: April 25
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement

The labyrinth of doorwaysWaiting brought attention to the environs of the room in which participants acted as waitees, each with a unique way to pass the time. It seems when we wait we forget the opportunity to simply communicate. We have the commonality of why we are waiting and what we are waiting for, though engaging people into simple conversation can sometimes seem a challenge. Finding no need to push beyond the boundaries of receptivity, the mind can be entertained with an engaging experience of imagination in the use of what surrounds us that we don’t often see. What became present was the doorway.  59 rings displayed the natural origin of the wood in age of the hallowed tree that it was produced from and amused by the circular nature of the rings, the design of the doorway became a new threshold experience for the labyrinth.

Passing time with amusing pursuits invited the creativity to see beyond mere rings and into the wisdom of this doorway. It brought opportunities to discover more beyond its stationary position in the wall and left to imagination and inspiration of what possibilities might lay just beyond the door frame. Always inspired by doorways and the invitation to live on the other side differently, each doorway holds that opportunity. Yet, why wait to go through with waiting being the operative word for the day; seize the potential of play and beyond the mind of design and like this new doorway, waiting can be a productive and potential building bit of amusing insight. The labyrinth can be a doorway to unlimited possibilities.

 

On this 115th day…
Step over the threshold into the labyrinth today and notice what is opened, how wide its opened and what is welcomed. Notice the doorways of your day afterwards for an insightful day of possibility

April's Banner Year of Living Honestly 2018April’s Focus

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!

  1. 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!

Welcome April

Day 91: April 1
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement

National Humor Month Begins on the LabyrinthWe find ourselves in the second season of the Year of Living Honestly, discovering the truth about what we are capable of in our walk of focus on the labyrinth. We move from becoming aware of our capacity, to educate with it and be educated by what we chose to do with it. The next three months give us the opportunity to honestly expand turning possibilities into probabilities. Use the labyrinth to educate yourself and also to educate others, as the more you share, the more you become aware of understanding something new.

April is National Humor Month and one of the proving points for great intelligence is in the ability to use humor. It sharpens our wit, invites a greater perspective and elevates our attitude and changes the way we relate to everything. Those who find the amusement in life use more of their capacity and potential as they understand the genius of play and light hearted living. Our world is looking for answers and when we have an elevated perspective, we can access them more efficiently for more effective responses.

Today is April Fool’s Day and while a great many pranks and good natured stunts are being orchestrated, it reminds us that we all want to have reasons to smile more and feel good. Let’s find the fun in our days and ways of walking the labyrinth. Remember that ancient stories tell us of the dances that took place on the labyrinth in ritual, tradition, art and expression. Labyrinths with children and in schools remind us of how to play with it to explore what is possible, just like our year long program here. Might I say here that jokes can be subjects, though enhancing a sense of humor is brilliance in action! 

Innovate, Create and Relate 
You may have noticed that I have been creating daily designs, so far it just felt good to be creative and after each walk, a new idea emerged. The creativity of this year of living honestly is inspiring and I hope it is bringing more of that out in you.

See below for the details of this month’s activities with three fun fabulous options to expand the truth about what more you can discover about yourself when focusing on amusement… just watch your abilities awaken. 

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 91st day…
Celebrate your humor being. Walk and remember how good it feels to feel good, increasing the feeling by being honest about what really feels good.

Relative Einstein

Day 73: March 14
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Discover

When we take ourselves to the labyrinth we are creating a unique relative experience. Where the labyrinth as a container might equal the mass in the structure and space of the experience, we also bring light energy in our movement.  When we multiply and expand our ideas, dreams, questions or thoughts, it expands our relative experience of light energy. In this way we always get out of the experience what we put into it. Today is Einstein’s birthday and as the Spiral of Theodorus is often called Einstein’s spiral due to his expansion of appreciating equalization. There are many formulas and theorems that have risen out of the growth of this moving plane curve we know as the spiral, many of which Einstein added solutions to, though he is one man among many that have contributed to our knowledge and wisdom through the curvature of the spiral’s equations.

Today celebrate your own genius abilities, which is also the nature of our year long program of living honestly. When we are in the celebration of possibilities, we are in the realm of our honestly. As Einstein was essentially a man of potential and possibility, he was also an advocate of rising what will educate and help us to understand to really know peace.  Happy Birthday Einstein!

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 73rd day…
In your capacity for peace and honesty, what grows in your light energy of imagination as you walk with possibility in mind?

————————————————————————————–

March’s Focus

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.

  1. Realize
    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.

2. Surprise
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.

Welcome March

Day 60: March 1
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Discovery

Welcome to the 61st day of the year and the new month of March in the calendar year of 2018. Let it become a month like none other in the exploration of the quarterly theme of Awareness to both realize and surprise yourself in what you are honestly capable of.

Let this become the month of Discover, and become aware of what you put into your explorations and what you receive as result.
Focus on the design of the Spiral to inspire a reminder of what you put into this month and come away with.

March brings with it a changing time of seasons. We welcome Spring in the last half of the the month and shrug off the winter weariness in pursuit of new growths and direction. Let it be a time to consider change and what we want to seed for the future. Our theme of honest living, reminds us of being true to exploring our greater capacities and reveling in what we discover as the rich reward of our efforts and belief. In today’s walk, the spiral intently became a focus of the walk and an introspective look at the nature of the labyrinth in use, ability and design broadened, thinking of the natural spirals in our life and Earth design.

March forth into this new month eager, ready and willing to discover something new, something more to realize the natural gifts within and around us that are the simple definition of honesty.

—————————————————————————————

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 61st day…
Walk with the newness of this month and observe your relationship with what you realize and what surprises you.

Purpose Love

Day 57: February 24
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

Each day offers a new opportunity on the labyrinth and in the suggestions for discovery of the honesty found in our walks, we already know that honesty is present in a walk. What is not always understood is the volume of potential that also exists in a variety of ways. As potential is limitless field of broad perspective, it will never be fully utilized in our lifetime, though tapping into more of what we have been using, that is our quest.

That is what is the honest to goodness truth for us to discover and while it might lay obvious before us on the path, recognizing, learning more and applying it is our great opportunity to find the heart in what we do and honestly love it too.

Today was a simple honest walk of looking into what I do and how I love it immensely. In all honesty it encourages, elevates and inspires others to wake up and take action, improving life quality. For me however it is a contribution to my own creativity and with each offering an introspective into my own understanding and relationship with the potential of the world. The more that is offered, the more the capacity expands and the more love grows. Barbara Marx Hubbard said it eloquently, “When a woman has found her purpose, it is as if she is in love.” There is a heart with spirit that finds its way into the everyday and I wonder that it is not the same experience with men too?

Be blessed in your discoveries today whether sorting out a few things or embracing something new or challenging. Find the arrow that hits your target and the love in it and observe the change in your walk.

—————————————————————————————

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 57th day…
Walk as you do when you are in love. Observe the changes when you walk in love with an idea or purpose instead of a person.

————————————————————————————–


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.

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.
