New Beginnings

TLS 365 Experience #154
Aug. 1, 2017

The first of the month is a great time for new beginnings to emerge. The newness of the calendar month takes me out onto the labyrinth and it is there that my deepest desires become internationalized. There is a great ease to consider that this direction is only for a month, and if each day I take another step, I have realized something valuable, useful and attainable in the span of thirty days or so.

Each day is like a new step I make on the first and on the last of the month is a great appreciation and reflection for accomplishment, no matter how large or small… just what I created. In this way, the steps I engage become both practical and magical and create a more thankful and life directed month.

The Quiet

TLS 365 Experience #153
July 31, 2017

The quietness of a labyrinth in CaliforniaToday is a quiet day and as I reach for the labyrinth, it becomes a still and quiet walk. I find when I am in this kind of quiet, everything seems slower and more profound. Whether I finger walk or utilize full body, the movements I make are very purposeful as if I can feel the tense and release of muscles. noticing how  each is applied in the momentum. My awareness becomes very exact as the quiet is applied like a blanket, and rolls out in a complete way to encompass the entire body.

The quiet is internal and isolates the outside world from the experience. Each motion is observed for what it is, without any descriptive thought or plan from the mind. It is in these moments of the walk that the action of the leg striding to make its next step is complete with the natural force of the foot bearing weight onto the pathway. In the finger walk it is the extension of the arm and the texture felt under the finger as it reaches its destination along patterns and grooves.

To apply a deep quiet creates an expansion of awareness and greater appreciation of each chosen action.

A Birthday Labyrinth

TLS 365 Experience #86
May 25, 2017

How many consider creating a birthday labyrinth?

I suggested the idea of walking on your birthday and sharing the experience for our collective 365 Experience. Where I have created quite a multitude of playful and meaningful paths over the years, it seems only fitting to celebrate an individual commemorative or purposeful path  for meaningful meander in honoring this annual celebration of life that we engage with in a way that is unique to each.

Next year I will be changing decades, so it seemed an enjoyable idea for a celebration of the nine years I have been in this one. I chose a nine circuit path and reflected on the beginning of this decade and on each path wandered into the next year. What a wonderful review it was and a great way to begin this last lap with a last laugh in all I have waiting for me in the next 365 days!

As if led to this point without mistake, I step into this year with newness. Cleansed intensely by the old, I know this will be a prosperous and joyous year of cultivating creativity and imagination will find its service in and for the world in a most playful and profoundly planetary manner.
