Love Review

Day 59: February 28
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love


Enjoy the last day of this short month as a Love Review. We have had four solid weeks of looking through the lens of love to explore the qualities at the heart of honesty. When we love what we do, what we have and what we are, we do more…and in better ways. That is what we are after in this quest of discovery.

This month in looking for the heart, I found it in design. Creating a number of different designs with different materials reminded me of the vivid imagination and spontaneous creativity that seems to frequent the days that hold the most fascination, feel good and inspire a natural curiosity. When in this place, it is at the heart and core of what I love to be and do. In the two points of focus for this month, this combined both in the synchronicity of mind and design in looking for the heart and feeling the essence of love.

Today’s walk was a love walk, full of gratitude and realization of what the past 28 days has offered. As you take to your path today, consider how this daily focus has opened or awaken some abilities and what type of hearts synchronistically opened or showed up for you.

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 60th day…
Walk in review of your month’s discoveries and explorations, becoming aware of the result of the fullness of your daily experience.

February’s Focus

As it is the second month of the year, enjoy two opportunities… discovery and realization.

  1. Discover your Love capacity:
    This month’s 28 days will focus on how we are loving the moments we are creating. Learning to be “in love” with our focus, it expands who we are beyond the partnered relational aspects and into the focus of loving what we offer the world, who we are in community, relating at a higher level to everything and everyone; and most significantly,  elevating the relationship we have with ourselves. Prepare for a wonderful experience of exercising the power of love with the freedom of honesty to realize a greater look at possibilities and potential n a delightful way. Discover how capable you are!

2. Realize synchronous evidence:
Inspired by the variety of heart shaped labyrinths, this month capture your experiences with images of the heart. Be on the look out for where the synchronicity of the moments where your heart is in focus and then look around to see where you can find the shape of a heart in symbol. Your awareness will expand and you just might be surprised to find that when we look with an open heart, we can find it in reference near by. It does require a bit of imagination, though the findings are wonderfully worth it. Share all the heart shaped labyrinth images you find with images, links or comments and I will be happy to post the images and moments.

The Heart of Breakfast

Day 44: February 13
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

Everyone starts their day differently. This morning Mom requested some cereal for breakfast and was curious about the drawings of the labyrinth that were in the next room. Bringing in a few of the designs, she finger walked the boards that the designs were on while her cereal breakfast was being prepared. She was still curious about the designs and how each were different. So as she finished her breakfast we created a little fun playing with food.

We made a number of designs with the cereal, though the one she liked best was the heart shaped design. Even though she had eaten a regular sized  bowl of cereal, we both munched along on the Cheerios as we  designed and laughed at playing with our food. We thought if we had a tray with a lip or edge to it we could have poured milk in for the path and just grab a couple of spoons for an instant labyrinth breakfast.

It was an unplanned moment of spontaneous creation and curiosity; enjoyable for both. This is a new design of a heart within a heart that we created and both appreciated.  As we grow in age, the time we have together is more treasured and when we can enjoy honest moments of spontaneous fun with what is at hand, they become the quality moments that remind us about what is really important and what truly matters in life.

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 44th day…
Walk on what you can put into your day that will make it worthwhile and nourishing.

Kairos Moments

Day 3: January 3
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Definition

Today’s walk moved as Kairos time, the opportune time, which for me was found in the gentle hours where the conscious mind arrives in degrees much like our movement defines our walk experience. To the predawn mind, the soft fluidity of the marble that formed the portable personal labyrinth made for an excellent choice in connecting time as moment with purpose. It was an honest time for authentic moments. In the flow of finger turns, the labyrinth brought a coolness that awakened the spontaneous instance with reminders of definition. What moment could provide more honesty than this?

As we are often reflective with thought before or after a walk, these moments in the walk are the definition of Kairos time as the experience provides a source for past or future deliberations. These moments are without complication and in true form. They define an honest moment and experience.

Explore the Kairos Moments in your day today

Giving Care

TLS 365 Experience #129
July 7, 2017

I am a Caregiver.

No one realizes how intense this can be until they find themselves in the moments of it. It is a rather spontaneous adventure and one that calls us to attention in ways we didn’t think possible, though it is where we find the possible and what lies even beyond that.

The path of curves and circles represents much reminder of choice as I can appreciate the care I give to myself in a daily way. The everyday focus keeps me more than grounded; it offers wisdom, patience and a profound sense of purpose in a meaningful and peaceful message. Daily I am met with new experiences and insights into my self and the role of giving care and with every piece of education I receive, I can apply it more appreciably in the care of another.

The walk of the labyrinth’s many paths also provides a regular time for the care of me.

The Practice of Practice

TLS 365 Experience #87
May 26, 2017

I love the spontaneous nature of life and find myself resisting the routine or scheduled more and more. It feels contrary to tie myself down to an obligation when the flow of just being with is calling.

As I find myself following the call of the labyrinth, as if it is by magic,  I discover or rather remember something as I walk through its interesting array of turns. I see both the expected that is found in routine and the unexpected spontaneous in what I call each new direction. By the time I reach the center, I begin to realize that the scheduled or practice got me here to explore the spontaneous.

As I reflect I understand in small steps that the call is my curiosity and having a value for that is what schedules the time to honor it. I realize now the practice is what allows the flow to be more fully realized, step by step.
