Day 81: March 22
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Discover
The spiral continues to fascinate in its expansiveness and it is no surprise that the spiral of honesty evolves as we grow into our capacities as human beings in the same kind of fascination, to discover we are more than we think we are. It can also be a spiral in a different direction when we aren’t discovering or have forgotten our values; the key is that the spiral moves as we do. As human beings we can begin to discover that we are completely full of spirals in our natural design. Today this design came about as a direct relation to the research into the spirals of the protein molecules, as it is both a labyrinth and a protein molecule. Our bodies are made up of mostly water and protein molecules, so understanding the non fluid side and its relation to the spiral and our walk of the labyrinth becomes a natural curiosity that expands our understanding, which grows our capacity… and the honesty we live with ourself.
Protein molecules are sophisticated in the complexity and function of their structure, having adapted in chemistry over billions of years; our evolution is a spiraling growth of adaptation. There are 20 types of standard amino acids in each protein molecule that give it shape and size. They form into chains becoming unique and different. These chains tend to twist, spiral and turn and when observed, the spiral is evident giving an interesting rise to the labyrinth of human origin.
Today’s design is formed from the microscopic four subunits of peptide chains of protein molecules known as a tetramer. In its circle upon circle connected format each of its quadrants has a purpose that join together to produce something greater. As we walk into a new season it might not be such a stretch to realize how the four seasons indeed create a year. That is the nature of the Tetramer to find value in its role and contribution to the greater whole. Similarly where our molecules automatically know what to do to help us grow, as humans we are quite often confused about our role and our contribution. Connect your molecular spirals and internal labyrinth as it seems when we walk in circles, we figure things out.
A suggestion to walk with:
On this 81st day…
Walk in the value of each part you play in many roles of your life and realize great value independently and to the whole.
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.
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.
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.
