Mirth’s Reflections

Day 120: April 30
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement

Folding triangle labyrinthAs we come to the end of the month and now a third of the way through the quarter of education , its time for reflections of what was created in the Year of Living Honestly. With three concepts this month, a broader perspective of education utilizing amusement provided discoveries to innovate, create and relate differently.

To innovate means to work with what is already established and develop broader insights and evolutions. The basic forms of the labyrinth; the ways to walk, the methods of sharing, the practice of design, artful redistributions, or our personal experiences all began with an idea and the more we appreciate, educate and amuse ourselves with possibilities, the more we evolve the realm of the labyrinth and its use.

Where innovation is redesign and redeveloping on a current element, to create is to bring into existence something new. Creativity can stem from innovation, though true moments of insight that bring a unique perspective are also examples of truth and development of our honest abilities too. Our third concept of relating mirrors everything of importance in the world, because as humans we relate to everything. How we relate is our great adventure, potential and life process.  When using a little humor in our walk of life or a simple walk of the labyrinth we can find it a happy catalyst of our abilities inspiring our creativity and firing innovation. We respond and relate to our own capacity for creativity and innovation as our body opens and our mind invites curiosity inspired from what amuses.

This month’s journey offered a joyful outlook and inspired creative ideals with thirty opportunities, one in each day to bring out more than we might think we were capable of. In the thirty designs and innovations used this month in this blog, each related to the labyrinth and life with amusement and brought a most insightful and rewarding way to relate to my own honest abilities and inventive process, I hope it was for you as well.

With much in amusement,

On this 120th day…
Reflect in your steps the month of your innovations, Creations and improved Relations with a lighter and brighter more amused outlook.

April's Banner Year of Living Honestly 2018April’s Focus

Let this month unfurl your creativity, spontaneity and jocularity. It feels good to feel good and while we have been conditioned to shush our good times, let the labyrinth be our own private creation station of amusement, enjoyment and playful experiments. This month educate with amusement and see how much farther you get. Have fun and be creative.  We have three opportunities to education your potential with amusement this month that involves either your personal walk, your ability to design and how much you can learn by sharing. On your Mark, Get Set…Go!

  1. Innovate – Walk Amused
    In the 30 days that grace this month, play with the way you personally experience the labyrinth. Let this season of education be one of personal bests and enjoy finding a new way to be innovative, creative, inspired and amused in your personal experiences. I’d love to see what you come up with!
    Please share your wonderful experiences! 

2. Create – Design Inspired 
To date I have created 95 different labyrinth creations and designs since the beginning of the year, let that inspire you to create something new this month that is inspiring and firing for your imagination. Einstein said that playing with ideas was the highest form of research and this is an education for all of us.  As you walk in new ways, share your designs as I have done with mine last year and this. Perfection isn’t what we are after, amusement is! I look forward to seeing what you come up with! I will toss out lots of inspiring ideas… stay tuned daily.
Share away and become a glad designer instead of a mad one!  

3. Relate – Share with Care
One of the best ways to learn anything is having to teach or explain it to someone else. Whether you facilitate others, teach or simply share with a few, spend the month discovering amusing new ways to help others get more out of their walk with a lighter attitude and a more earnest enjoyment in what you share. Anything you want to know more about, share and this month share with a fun flair and notice how much more you actually begin to understand. You just might find a side of yourself forgotten. To receive all that, be a great giver.
Share what you discover!

Christmas Walk of Presence

TLS 365 Experience #300
December 25, 2017

Wishes for PresenceWith Christmas Wishes with blessings we walked our local labyrinth today placing messages on Christmas Cards in the center for our guests. We used the simple concept of Christmas Past to enter, contemplating the moments of memory. Christmas Present was the center focus where indeed we thought of the presents of presence in our life now. The walk of return was for the Christmas Future.

It was a great opportunity to share in between our gathered meal and over coffee and chocolates we enjoyed wonderful reflections.  Every year we have offered this has been different and appreciative.  It never gets old!

Walking to Clarity

TLS 365 Experience #135
July 13, 2017

I went to the glass labyrinth today in Kansas City. It was a different application to walk enclosed and even though their was no ceiling and the walls were glass, their was a feeling of being enclosed. It felt maze like in the wondering, as I could see the reflections around me, though it wasn’t always clear where to go until I reached an endpoint. The eyes alone can deceive, though when we just follow the path, the way is quite evident.

Small children were stirring up the energy with their playful adventures running throughout and at one point a young boy ran straight into the glass and fell back. He was stunned at first though got up and continued running only to come to the same point later on and repeated the same experience. When he went around again, he avoided impact successfully.

We were on the same path with our distractions, yet on a path of clarity to resolve them.

A Long Walk

TLS 365 Experience #111
June 19, 2017

The Long Walk It seemed like such a long walk.
I was tired and here to walk the labyrinth with a friend. She asked if I would come with and where I had not walked a labyrinth before, I humored her and came along even though all parts of me longed to be elsewhere.

As I stood by contemplating my turn and waiting for the opening, it seemed like a really long walk that didn’t seem to end anywhere. As my turn came I joined in and stepped into this interesting circle. I looked down mostly to keep my balance and make sure my feet knew where to step and where not too. It became easier when I realized the only thing we had to do was follow the path.  I relaxed and enjoyed the outdoors and soon found my movement lighter and flowing and before long I had reached the center. Not long at all.

Years later I reflect back on that first long walk and my initial interpretation. Where I was resistance, the labyrinth’s turns and patterns relaxed and invited. What seemed so long so many years ago now seems so short… Am I done already?
