Singing the Labyrinth

TLS 365 Experience #173
Aug. 20, 2017

For years I walked the labyrinth in quiet meditation. Then one day I felt like singing and it was a wonderful comfort to be expressive with a connected feeling of my body to the earth and my song to the sky. It opened up much and I found that there are times of silence and times of singing now and the more I sing, the better I feel after a walk.

Wee Hour Walk

TLS 365 Experience #128
July 6, 2017

Up in the middle of the night, it is dark and quiet and a mysterious curious stillness is present.

I step outside and tip toe to the labyrinth, as if my walk would disturb the silence. Lack of sleep wants to speak its peace and express a truth, a direction or an action. It is where the labyrinth will communicate what is caught up in the mind and restore the body in a depth of deep listening.

Stepping in, time disappears.The night holds a luminous liminal capsule to embrace, and in its application there is a blanket of acceptance for the message that awakens me from slumber and the movement that reveals its meaning and returns me again. Perhaps it is a dream and maybe a reality; its wonder is found in this time I infrequently visit and what I absorb while there.  Just as I reach my ending, I am brought back to a new starting point, knowing a little more than before.

The weight of tiredness now apparent tells me I have found resolve and as I tip toe back into the motionless around me and slide back into the covers, I am reminded of my fluid movement of mind and body as I slow them down to once again drift off and away into the path of slumber.

Illumination Time

TLS 365 Experience #103
June 11, 2017

It’s quite when I walk.

In the dark of the moon, I like to appreciate the silence and stillness. It is as if I am the only movement. The steady light of the moon illuminates the labyrinth just enough to lay out the path before me and my eyes adjust to the rest. It is a time to savor and often I walk barefoot just to feel all that is natural.

From the activity of my day, all falls away and I am just in the moment with the labyrinth, speaking to it with my footsteps and listening in response with the whole of my body. I become the walk and hear my day more clearly and all to often,  just the moment at hand and find it very comforting and very much, enough.

A Greater Communicator

TLS 365 Experience #51
April 20, 2017

Sometimes there is little to say and lots to convey.

That is when the feet communicate much, in the pace, the persistence, and the patterns that form on the walk. The body moves in accord to what calls from within and sometimes what moves from without.

Listening and learning, appreciating and receiving all in purpose with practical steps. The parts come together, beginning, middle and end and relate a mindful reflection that speaks clearer in the silence than voiced words or sound.

We might call it introspective silence, though that itself is the greater communicator.

Walking without, deepens walking within.

Labyrinth Center

CenterLabyrinthBetween the crackling calls of the crows

Silence

Between the sweet swishes of the wind

Silence

Between the questions questions questions

Silence

Between then and now

Silence

Between now and whatever will come

Silence

Between the body and the pulse

Silence

Between the open hands

Silence

Between all the names of mystery

Silence

Between the silence and the silence

Still deeper the silence

And the call
