Thinking Twice

TLS 365 Experience #186
September 2, 2017

It is interesting to notice my notice.

As I walk into the labyrinth there is an opportunity to become aware of what is present on my mind and I am surprised at how much is often there. With each step forward another thought or idea presents itself for consideration, clarity or clearing. As the turns increase and more time is spent, those thoughts tend to come less quickly as if the whole of my brain was easing and moving not calmer, just in a more relaxed way. In the center there isn’t much thinking, just notice being more in a full body listening mode.

In walking out of the center, the thinking returns reflectively. What is different in this thinking is in how I summon an idea to ponder and in the beginning thoughts just pop up. There is an effortless flow about the return walk, where a question of the mind is now answered with ease.

As I come to the end of the labyrinth, where thought is concerned I am of two minds it seems and in one, it thinks for me and the other I think for it. As I surrender thought, I am interestingly more in control than before.

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?
