Dandelion Delight

Day 124: May 4
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration

A sharing from Ellen of the Midwest:

Labyrinth of Dandelions

Labyrinth of dandelions. Photo Credits

Walked among a Labyrinth flanked by dandelions today. I wanted to rush back home for my camera to post it to the TLS 365 Experience, but realized a photo really wouldn’t capture the beauty nor the essence.  Instead, I feasted my eyes on this lovely site, every once in a while wanting to bolt to retrieve my camera.  I  soon realized how my zeal to share removed me from the experience of savoring something for the pure pleasure it provided me in the moment.

I thought maybe I was copping out, though, as soon as I returned home the sky darkened and there was a torrential downpour. Nature spoke wisely and I am glad I listened to the still small voice that told me to enjoy the experience and when to simply go home.

Celebrating the dandelions, the reminders, the walk, the appreciation and the realizations with happy synchronizations to listen to, trust and allow! An honest walk that satisfies.

On this 124th day…
Step into the petals of possibilities today with what you have around you. Use that to discover your appreciation and see what you step into next.


The Month of Celebration, Appreciation and Realization
May’s Focus: Celebration

Life is a celebration to explore in the next 31 days. With the idea of walking the labyrinth and its tri-focus on releasing, receiving and reflecting, let’s shift the perspective to one that walks in with appreciation, finds the honest realization from each day and walks out in celebration.  Observe what 31 days of this focus might reflect and how it elevates our life condition.

Four focus points to expand your celebration of this month’s experience:

  1. Share your ideas, in your personal experiences, how you share the labyrinth with others, art, design or method of construction or in other ways that it may be utilized. Let others know about this daily experience and opportunity by sharing it. Find us on this blog and on the Labyrinth Societies Facebook page
  2. Join our Mid Month Dialogues on May 15th at 2pm CST for a lively look at what you have created and will create in the idea of celebration. This month’s theme was a direct result of our last month’s Mid Month Dialogue!
  3. Participate in the daily opportunity of this educational focus of  your personal journey, how you lead, teach or share with others, and what you create for contribution or purpose with this theme.
  4. Remember that our theme is about finding our greater capacities, abilities and true realities in being honest with our potential. We focus on what we can do as it is inherently more useful and productive.

The Spiral View

Day 90: March 31
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Discover

The Spiral ViewOn this last day of March, the 11th day of Spring and the ending of the first quarter of the year in Awareness, we come upon the end of a fascinating month of realizing the value in comprehension of the spiral and the surprise in discovering how relative they are in our lives. In our year of living honestly, we are essentially realizing and surprising what we are capable of and so with great appreciation we come to the end of the spiral…. or do we?

We defined a spiral at the beginning of the month as a curve in a plane or what occupies the space that moves around a center point in a gradually expanding manner. We’ve explored a number of different components of a spiral and many different types as well as a variety of applications that are easily identifiable and some that require a new perspective. We have also considered in this month a greater relevance for the spiral in our mere existence within ourselves and within the geometry of our universe.

Walking this day in great reflection of the spiraling nature of our existence and ability in review of this time in exploration, what is revealed is a vastness of potential that is open and available to us, were we to only take it in stride. We have this greatness of existence, for but a mere 100 years if we are fortunate, and yet we find much of what we can do untapped. It is the paradox of life to find our abilities on one hand and then discover a new realm of ourselves in sharing them on the other.  In this quarter of awareness, we have looked at how we begin, how we love and now how we integrate universally with all. As it comes to a close, review your realm of awareness and notice how it has grown, adapted or evolved. Prepare for the next season in how we educate what we are aware of.

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 90th day…
Marvel in the presence of your steps in review of this great month of spiraling exploration and this season of awareness. Where you have found truth and honesty with your efforts?

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.

Inwards In Words

Day 75: March 16
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Discover

Day75_InwardsInWords_TheAmusedMuse2018As we move from mid month into the second half our focus after our Monthly Dialogues tends to raise consciousness to take what we explored in the first half of the month of realization to expanding, deepening and enjoying the value of each experience that comes with the wisdom of what was gained.

That is what this month’s focus of Realize and Surprise is all about. Surprise yourself in this last half with what is possible by going a little farther, looking a little deeper or enjoying another aspect of this month that is an awesome appreciation in the study of spirals; math’s moving  magical mystery.

Today was a writing day and in going a little farther, even our words can become a spiral of purpose and practicality that move us into the point.  The design created today was a direct result of the direction the words inspired.

 

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 75th day…
What words spiral you into deeper insight?

Hear the Spiral

Day 61: March 2
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Discover

The spiral is a fascinating natural phenomenon as it can be found in the largeness of our galaxy or in the mighty force of a hurricane and yet exist in the smallness of a seashell. We can find them within the structure of our DNA and human composition and we can find them throughout our culture in civilizations of both past and present. We can see them in nature, art, design and in the patterns of the labyrinth. We can also experience the wonder of the spiral in our natural sense ability in the way we walk through a labyrinth.

With the spiral in mind and in body, an innate sense of hearing was activated today. Listening for the spiraling sounds around and in the depth of listening came the ring of a church bell. Listening took on a new form as each step held an echo of weight and balance in the motion of body and sound. Listening intently, the sound swirled into the cavity of the ear meeting a natural spiral and reverberated through the brain and down the spine. It brought greater notice of the swing in the step and the joint and muscle placement of the walking movement. It was as if an opportunity to become the sound, spiral and the labyrinth all at once presented itself. In this moment a realization occurred of a way to use the Tibetan bowls a bit differently as a listening exercise on the labyrinth. A nice surprise followed as an uplifted feeling spiraled through brain and body at the same time.

—————————————————————————————

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 62nd day…
Walk with observance of how the spiral within you moves within the spiral of the labyrinth design.

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.

Journey Into You

TLS 365 Experience #244
October 30, 2017

 

Journey into the Center of You LAT2007

Wherever we are in the world, the one place we can always go into to get away from others or out of a discomforting place is within.

For some it is not a known destination or one that may be fully welcoming in the moment, though it is the place where our truth exists. That can be liberating, encouraging and wonderfully reminding of who we are and how we are meant to be useful in the world.

It is a journey to appreciate and love, one step at a time. Know the gifts are both deep and priceless. The labyrinth’s journey unwinds us slowly to discover more in each step and to wind our way around to realizing its center and it is a journey of steps to get there.

Realize a significant prize is in the steps from here to there.

Fitting In

TLS 365 Experience #214
September 30, 2017

In a hurry and having much to do, I wanted to fit in a walk in the morning. What I learned is that a walk is not fit in, it is not just another thing to do because it is on my list. All the hurry faded away and things just made sense with ample time to do all I wished. I realized after reaching the middle that I was reaching my limit and my inner wisdom spoke in remembering the labyrinth when all seemed to be over whelming.  This middle point in my being knew I was walking other peoples hurry and not necessarily my own and wisely brought up the idea of the labyrinth. The calm and gentle feeling after the walk gave me a good reminder, that walking other’s schedules made me not fit in to my own.

Sad to Glad

TLS 365 Experience #202
September 18, 2017

Very sad today. I am not sure how to explain the depth of what brings me to this sadness, though it is heavy and deep. I choose to walk the labyrinth today however in honor of this sadness as it’s pain and discomfort is a reminder that I cared, loved and was involved. So I walk the labyrinth in this way in observance and appreciation. As I walk I am reminded of the actions I took and efforts I made that brought me to this point. I turn the corner and turn my thoughts from fault to appreciation that I made the effort. I am reminded of the importance of my efforts and the importance of myself and I walk on. I consider the feelings I have had and as I make another turn, I am finding myself noticing both the uncomfortable pain and the fact that I have feelings.

I notice where and what hurts and I realize the throbbing and pulsing and still myself with hand over heart. There is throbbing and pulsing and I am aware of how this beating heart allows me to care and flow and that I did.  As I continue I find my thoughts arise and a diminished perspective sees the habits I have outgrown revisited and the ones that still evoke self doubt and sabotage. Interestingly these thoughts mount as I come to make another turn. On the other side of it, I realize what has been, what is and what I wish to think beyond. I realize worth of self in these steps and the thoughts that support what I can do, what I offer and what I am.

As I come into the center I come into the choice of the way I appreciate my life and how the sadness becomes my teacher and a reminder of my gladness often. As I leave the center, I move onto each path in the thoughts and feelings of what I hold dear and how it heightens my heart and moves me into a gladness for my sadness and an appreciable sense of well being.

The Voice of the Labyrinth

TLS 365 Experience #161
Aug. 8, 2017

I got stuck today. Ideas that normally seem to flow were not and my focus was off. I couldn’t seem to concentrate for any period of time and even my focus could not seem to be narrowed down.

I picked up the finger labyrinth and thought it might shift my focus as it often is a place where I find new direction.  As my finger traced the path I began to feel a heaviness in my body and as I circled around, a sense of slowness crept in. By the time I reached the center I recognized how tired I was. The reflected return brought awareness to my breathing and as it’s slowness created a calm peaceful appreciation, a choice presented itself. In my attempts to accomplish a number of things, I had not been enjoying adequate sleep, my body was simply tired and I had not honored it’s message.

Not until the finger walk, did I stop to realize fully, the very thing that would bring back focus, function and creativity, sleep. The voice of the labyrinth is found when we engage with it.
