The Last Beginning

Day 31

January 31, 2019
Month of Beginnings
Quarter of Consciousness
Let’s Walk the World, a focus of contribution

  1. For Your Walk:
    Walk into all the beginnings you created this month.
  2. For Your Experience: 
    Realize the variety of beginnings and how they are each a new experience.
  3. Share:   Share your message
    When we collectively offer the ways to begin, someone sees a new idea, thought or experience to enjoy. Today, share images, art, ideas, designs, tips, facilitations, building strategies, ideas from your book, poems, teachings, etc.

Today’s Experience:

We reach the last day of the month of beginnings with a last lap of the labyrinth. On this 31st day of January, never to repeat itself in essence or experience ever again, consider all the ideas, methods, and intentions that became new beginnings in this month and what they yielded as a result. Each day is a walk of the labyrinth of life, turning to move into a point or purpose and back out again, all day long. Each turn takes us into the main point, purpose or central concept in a way that spirals round and round until it reaches its apex. Every experience a new opportunity, even with the same path, person and process.

Sharing a number of labyrinths with a friend from France on this month’s journeys, this Arizona labyrinth was an old favorite that had new beginnings with an old friend, a medicine wheel and a sweat lodge that had been included. What was old was new again and when its shared with another, there is always something more to see and experience.

January: A Month of Beginnings

With a focus on sharing this month and the ways we set up our plans to the actual way we place our first step, beginnings can offer us a way to realize our outcomes.

  1.  Explore what beginning is like for you, personally or professionally in all you do.
  2.  Observe yourself in this first quarter of the year as a contribution.
  3.  Walk, design, teach, build, express yourself in sharing an experience this month.

A Review of Review

Day 365  December 31
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Honest Gifts

Segment Six: Review
Day 365

Looking Back to Look Ahead

image of the last day first day of 2018 Walking experienceIn review we find ourselves at the ending, beginning again. With seasoned eyes, there is a grateful recognition that something has transpired in between. On the labyrinth, a review becomes more than what we witness, as it involves our whole being transformed into experience mode. 

The 365 days of the experience of the Year of Honest Living, have moved us inward, shifted our direction, offered a new way to turn things around, and provided a series of paths to follow. while inviting us into a portal of discovery that spirals us back into reflective mode to digest the fullness of the engagement. 

As the year was one that began with a message and following through, what has transpired in thematic purpose each month has carried the message of honest living and the abilities that rise in great ways when we do. It’s been an adventure, an exploration and a journey of discoveries. There is much to appreciate in what has transpired as a year of insightful daily journeys that aimed for one purpose, to realize what more was possible.

Returning to the beginning on the walk of grace in the desert, a thankful richer walk transpires to appreciate what has been yielded from this engaged daily experience and noting the innate abilities that are an honest part of our existence, now realized for the greater gift they offer.


Daily Insights of this 365th day…
This day offers a reflection of reflections of the gifts realized and remembered this month and the ones that have risen in the year.

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

  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.

    • 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.

Qualities of Giving

Day 337  December 3
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Honest Gifts

Segment One: Giving
Days 335-340

Qualities of Giving

image of the segment one star labyrinth Its not often that we think of the qualities found in the gift of giving. To observe in the past year, the art of others who have build installations, artistic statements or simple designs from a place of purpose for a specific reason, each held characteristics and elements relative to their purpose in giving. Some made personal declarations, others made statements of the world and still others hoped to give inspiration for change and development through their contributions. 

Gifting a sister with a special labyrinth design on her birthday and in doing so inspired to create designs for others for their special occasions, giving becomes the art offering of ones abilities for the benefit of another. Helping a community to grieve by bringing them together to build a labyrinth in memorial is a gift that continues to give to the community to sort out meaning on the path of the labyrinth. 

Exploring a month for expression of what emerges from an experience gave a choice for the voice to articulate evidence of explored new dimensions. In each instance of giving this year, qualities defined themselves in  our steps. 


Daily Insights of this 337th day…
Define the characteristics and qualities of giving in your walk of today.

Surplus

Day 333  November 29
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Grateful Pathways

Week Four: Counting Your Blessings

 In the past weeks of November, we have offered six outer paths and a summary for the central and final seventh path of seven days. As blessings have been so bountiful, the seventh center path of this last day of the week has been devoted to the idea of surplus in the blessings that gratitude possesses.  

It would appear that there is an infinite vessel that pours forth when it comes to the essence of gratitude and the results oriented blessings. In their ever ready availability, they very reliably fit the description of surplus in the more than expected abundance that only benefit to extend the path an extra day and leave the summary for a walk of entirety in the blessings of gratitude

The surplus path of the blessings labyrinth by TheAmusedMuse.comThe Seventh Blessing: Surplus

We dream of enough and to know the concept of what it is to be truly sated and satisfied. Our society asks for more than enough instead which builds surplus. When surplus is shared there is enough for everyone and when it is hoarded, it becomes a lesson outside of the generous and affluent position of humble gratitude. 

From a position of enough, we can learn from an experiential walk on the labyrinth what we can do with enough and how much more than enough is really inefficient in make the scarcity of hope our master over the knowing abundance of gratitude. Walk on the difference and consider what you would do and could do with a surplus that would make sense for all and contribute to a purpose filled world.

 


Daily Insights : On the first path of Appreciation in this 333rd day…
Walk to realize what you have enough of, are satisfied with and complete.

Treasured and Invaluable

Day 324  November 20
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Grateful Pathways

Week Three: Appreciation

Adding more appreciation to our days because it feels good to do so can be a slow and gradual building that reflects upon what is important and matters.  If we find our day realizing the moments that bring out our best, we’ll be less likely to examine or fitting into the ways of others. It becomes an effective use of our time and an active opening to more of what we have available to use.   

Feeling is magnified when we look at the power of the words we use. When we walk with those words into a natural spiraled concentration that winds the way the labyrinth does, we amplify our focus. Appreciation rises in what we treasure and hold invaluable.    

Treasured to Invaluable


Treasured to Invaluable Labyrinth Path by TheAmusedMuse.comWalk in as Treasured

Life’s purpose is to discover what we’re all about, what abilities we possess and the ways in which we can utilize, grow and add them to the world. To know our value is to know what our treasures are. As we walk the labyrinth in self discovery, we see metaphors of our life showing up on the paths before us. It is a way to exercise ability and explore potential capabilities. They are our gifts and our treasures to mine and excavate, like the gems of sunken treasure we can find ways to bring them to the surface. As we realize the gifts within ourselves, we can more easily and readily see them in others. The more we treasure, the more we appreciate.

Walk out as Invaluable

 Stepping into something we treasure, our senses heighten, anticipation is felt as a wiggle within the body and our outlook rises with curiosity. The value we create for our well being is immense as our mind is relaxed and open, our body receptive and our soul is affirmed knowing we are activating our higher abilities. The feeling is invaluable, as no price can be put on elevating well being with wonder. To explore or expand what we can do and be, brings a usefulness to life that make our life worthwhile. Embracing our treasures is life fulfilling and calls our invaluable priceless nature to light and appreciation in sight.

 


Daily Insights : On the first path of Appreciation in this 324th day…
Walk in as treasured and appreciate walking out more invaluable.

Sacred

Day 277  October 4
n The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Message, Metaphor and Magic

image of stone labyrinth with Metaphor of Scared to Sacred
Topic: Sacred

In walking, one finds a great rearrangement occurs enabling simple ways to see complex purpose.


The  Message:

A venerated space for divinity is the realm of the sacred, a place to allow the presence of our humility in the face of a magnitude we merely understand. To walk in that space it to be willing to take in the moment as a morsel of the limitless availability and apply it with a mountain of meaning. The nature of our reverence grows in our ability to not understand, but to trust and abide in this implicitly.

The Magic: 

Walking realizations provide expansion from being one person to being one person in the world. In the moment present, walking with any tenacious feeling inward with turning movements of mind and body, a rearrangement from stillness to motion to stillness occurs and changes what’s moved to be moved. In mere steps, what is unsure can become sure and more reverent of the magical change as scared opens wonder of the sacred with respect and reverence. Walking in can move an element into wholly different perspective as one walks out. 

When writing scared instead of sacred, is it a message to trust?

 

 


Daily Insights : On this 277th day…
Walk in a little unknowing, a little scared to walk out a little more knowing and more reverent for what is sacred.

Expressive Beginnings

Day 244 September 1
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Application
In The Month of: Labyrinth Expressions

We enter the final month of the third quarter in September of our active applications in this year long experience of exploring a year of living honestly. After eight months of observing, educating and applying an honest truth to what we do, say and become in our walk, we may begin to realize a transformation of of realization occurring on this grand and purposeful adventure.

Our final application of the labyrinth in the next 30 days will complete this quarter and prepare us for the final quarter of the year in reflective contribution. Enjoy this month of application as it takes what we have become aware of and what we have questioned and learned and applies the test of truth in exploration and experimentation of an honest expression. As we have seen in the past eight month, art is an expression of what is happening inside of us and around us. In September our focus shifts to using the labyrinth as an expression and in doing so, bring more choice to our own voice. 

Explore the ways in which you wish to put out discoveries about yourself, your work, your community or your purpose, discovered with the labyrinth. Each week we will shift into how the labyrinth comes alive in expression and relates from personal to professional to passion and purpose. You do not have to consider yourself an artist, just use the labyrinth to make your statement. It may be an interpretation of how we design a labyrinth or a labyrinth design or drawing. It may be a program or walk of personal or group reflection. Let the ways you use the labyrinth come alive in expression.  Consider the tools used and the elements that are brought into use on an individual level or in the ways we share with others. How you express will be your curiosity spoken in creativity and cultivated in visual form.

 


Daily Insights : On this 244th day…
Applying an honest expression to what we create today, is a path to freedom and joy. Explore your creations with expressions that come from within today and note the feeling that arrives. We are always creating in every minute.

The Unity in Unity

Day 243 August 31
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Application
In The Month of: States of Being United

Image of the perennial labyrinth in Unity, ME

Today we complete the many states of exploring our perspective of the ways we can be united in ourselves, with our abilities and in the ways the labyrinth offers. We’ve crossed the nation moving through a great many of our states and even creating a labyrinth of lines that for the first time have to step over a line we’ve crossed before on the map. It reminds us of the many lines we step over and beyond in order to find the honesty of our abilities and purpose. In a year that has had us questioning what our truth is, this experience has led us to discoveries and explorations of ourselves and our relationship with the labyrinth.

As we complete the coast to coast journey, we arrive in the northern and Easternmost state in our nation, Maine. There are a number of beautifully designed labyrinths for private individuals that take in the impressive coastal nature of Maine, and a variety of bed and breakfast, spa centers and botanical gardens that embrace the walk of the labyrinth as well.  The Labyrinth Guild of New England incorporates Maine’s labyrinths and unites the individuals and enthusiasts who are part of the curious circles of support and resource too. A graduate student did a remarkable job of exploring and uniting the passion and purpose of the labyrinth in a thesis report as well as became an instrumental part of the building of a labyrinth at the University of New England in Maine.

 labyrinth image in the shape of the state of MaineAt the end of our walk, we can be impressed at finding so much that unites the interest in the labyrinth with the people who cultivate it in Maine. What better way to end the month and the theme than a walk in Unity. The Maine Organizational Farmers and Gardeners Association is a uniting of those who dwell with the land in form and function with education and advocacy for a growing community of the better ways to use our land for our people. This association, interestingly enough located in the town of Unity, Maine came together to build a labyrinth of perennials for the annual Farm and Homestead Day utilizing 800 square foot of land to build this three circuit labyrinth that will continue to bring life growing forward.

To end our month on a note of unity in Unity was intentional, though very much a gift of divine discovery on this last day of the month. It seems when we are focused intently, the way of the path appears.

US Interactive Map Progress

While we did not travel in all fifty states of the USA, we traveled from Alaska to Maine in coast to coast exploration. While a few of our paths might seem to encourage a new step to stay on the path, the rest made for an interesting unity of one line of labyrinth walking.  Link to our United Path for August

Opportunities for August

As we traveled the globe in search of exploration and returned with an abundance of realizing the consecutive connectives of the world in June and July, we touched the mere surface of our planet through the eyes of the labyrinth.  In the month of August, we continue the explorative nature looking for what insight brings us to unite. It can be a  discovery of the united purpose that we connect with others, or in the way we bring who we are with what we can and want to do.  What August brings is a focus of how the labyrinth brings state of being united, within ourselves within the United States. Send along the labyrinths, programs, art, and offerings within the United States that you feel best represents this for daily postings. 

  1. What Unites
    Reach out and share the unique labyrinths in this month within the United States that serve to unite. We look for the unique design, interesting purpose, connected message, in the labyrinth or in the ways we share with others in message or program, art, design and education applied. Share your ideas, programs, purpose images and experiences at the 365 Experience on the TLS website providing some detail of why you design, share, create, build or simply walk, who benefits and how it helps us unite. Personal insight or National perspectives are welcome.
  2. What brings Insight
    As we take each day of the 31 available in August exploring what brings us insight with our selves or as a nation through the paths of the Labyrinth.  This quarter focuses on the ways we apply the insight we gain and as we are united with our own insights, may we use them as well in a way that unites us personally and also purposefully with others as a nation united.

Of the many things we can do with the labyrinth, sharing it with an insight into how people live is one of the best ways for others to understand its purpose and practical uses to enhance the quality of life.  The Bart Rea Learning Circle is a wonderful example of utilizing the fullness of the labyrinth in a variety of educational practices that teach about alternative methods of health and improved well being.

In The Month of: States of Being United

50 states of labyrinths imageWelcome August!

As the world seems to be coming apart in some ways, designing new in different ways and shifting in still other ways;  these great directions, might seem to be taking us away or questioning where our path is. In the summer months of June and July, the 365 Experience has explored the labyrinths of the world and their greater purposes and uses while growing in our own explorations as a result. August presents a great way to end the summer season with a national journey exploring more of what brings us together in united purpose with insights from the labyrinths of the land that calls itself the United States.

Exploring the insights of what unites can provide a useful path with common interest in the ways we come together with the path, with ourselves, with our communities and with the world. Consider all the ways that the labyrinth brings insight about uniting. Whether it is the program you have developed, the new design you share, someone who has made a big difference  or just the walk you have with yourself; consider the labyrinth and our messages that unite this month that you might like to showcase in the United States that stand out as applying great unity.

Each day a new focus on the states of what unites will be focused in the United States. Read along, share your perspectives and hone your own states of unitedness this month and elevate our year long focus of living into greater abilities using the path of the labyrinth.
