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:
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.
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:
- 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
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
