Realized Walk

TLS 365 Experience #290
December 15, 2017

This is the happy walk of realization!
When working on a project, idea or creation, walking on it over the months has produced little bits of important information. Where walking on it more has created new and different insights. Walking even more in those curiously blocked moments has developed a range of perspective not otherwise noticed. Then when all those moments, in those walks of inquiry, release and prayer have found their saturation point, there is one more walk left. It is the moment of happy realization in the completion, appreciation of the struggle and affirmation of the goal. This is the walk we wait for and when it is said and done, we look for the next idea or project to come.

A Walk with Ribbons

TLS 365 Experience #285
December 10, 2017

As I wrapped another gift, the box of ribbons tipped over and landed in a pile on the floor. Sitting down to re sort them in the box, I realized how easy it’s become to see circles in circles and understand the nature of the flowing ribbons of life.  As I sorted the ribbons, I played with them a bit creating a labyrinth of ribbons. It brought back a time out on the labyrinth with others twirling silk ribbons and feeling the wonderful flow being created.

Putting my fingers through the walk, I enjoyed the idea of ribbons winding and unwinding resembling the weaving and movement that is all around us.  Stories have a way of unraveling to create meaning. Events can just trail on in the meandering way of a ribbon, noting that they all have a point that one gets to, even if it isn’t in the center. I find unwinding is often the point. From the release or increase of mind or body and the greater mysteries of  the flow of life life to the simplicity of adding a ribbon to enhance and decorate, the ribbon can be a quiet symbol of significance.

As I completed and put the ribbons back in the box and reordered life, I stood in the realization of the enjoyable moments and memories made in the moment of mishap.

Exercising Variety

TLS 365 Experience #283
December 7, 2017

Coming out to find some air, the labyrinth in the garden seemed to invite some blood circulation with a walk. Rubbing palms together and pulling the scarf around my neck, I enjoyed the cool snap of crisp air as I entered. Thinking of it as an exercise, pumping arms and marching steps became part of the movement.

As I was getting into the movement, another joined me on the labyrinth. I had a moment of hesitation as it seemed a private experience and interruptive of another’s quiet time. Just as I was about to surrender my large movements, the other woman did the same arm circles and called out, “Great idea!”.  As we both continued to exercise the labyrinth, we were joined by others who had been watching from inside and soon we had to watch out in our thrusting of arms and legs, not to make a harmful connection.

It became a cheering experience of movement and amusing connection that invigorated all of us. It was also a chance to realize a different experience of the labyrinth, rather than the quiet mindful walks I have known. Realization on the labyrinth comes in many forms and today I moved myself in a variety of ways.

Change on the Path

TLS 365 Experience #227
October 13, 2017

In our classes on Prosperity and Abundance we thought to bring the community into an exchange idea, so for the month we invited our participants to walk the labyrinth everyday or as many days as they found possible. When they did they were to bring change in their pockets and based on ideas we were sharing, leave some change on the border of the labyrinth where the moment of realization occurred. Whatever they pulled from their pocket was to be left and the walk was to carry on.

As they circled around with the ideas, each time they gravitated to the new ideas being shared and could see the way they could incorporate it. At the moment of realization they were to notice if change was on the path or border where they stood, if so they could pick it up and take it with them, noticing what the total amount was to carry out their plan. Money was left out all month and there was always something on the path to resemble both the changes being made and the change they were concentrating on in a monetary sense.

By the end of the month this simple concept worked well in our ideas and goals and many realizations had become new thoughts and realities for many. We proved our point that change was always on our path and when we let go of what we didn’t require, others might be able to use it to inspire at different times and at different times, we might be those individuals either releasing or increasing.

Unwind and Unbind

TLS 365 Experience #126
July 4, 2017

blue labyrinthOn this day of Independence,  I walk alone bringing back a memory of a group that had a focus on coming into their independence. The labyrinth was a natural compliment as it allows for a sense of liberation and freedom when we release the mind from the busy matters and unwind what is tangled in the body too.

There are so many different ways in which we feel we lose our natural ability and many times we constrict it ourself with tension or closing our mind. The walk of circular spiraling energy that moves us with purpose in an unwinding fashion naturally relaxes our grip and offers us a sense of freedom.

Where the group I led created their own dialogue from the question of what gives you freedom and what takes it away; the messages ranged from what was personal to world concerns. The metaphor of their messages came down to the realization that if we each take care of knowing what binds us and move in this way that unwinds us, our individual independence becomes world liberty.

A Path of Metaphor

TLS 365 Experience #108
June 16, 2017

Metaphors become simple realizations on the labyrinth.

The walk of the labyrinth offers awareness with a  glimpse of perspective, and as we continue on each step has a way of bearing proof and an easier acceptance. We can’t really hide from ourselves on the labyrinth, our truth has a way of showing up. In the metaphor, however the truth becomes a gentle suggestion and the path provides time and reinforced direction to comprehend and appreciate.

Where people aren’t always able to tell us the truth, the labyrinth has the metaphor that helps us to be grateful for it.
