The Twelve Paths of Labyrinth

TLS 365 Experience #276
December 1, 2017

Twelve Paths of the LabyrinthOn the first path of Labyrinth, I found a place to enter
and knew if I kept pace, I’d find my center.
On the second path of Labyrinth, I adjusted to the walk, and silently began my inner talk.
On the third path of Labyrinth, I swung into great stride, stepping confidently and with no need to hide.
On the fourth path of Labyrinth, I noticed what I learned, with new perspective and directive when I turned.
On the fifth path of Labyrinth, I recognized a spiral
moving back and forth and inward all the while.
On the sixth path of Labyrinth, it led me to the middle,
and once there, easily resolved a riddle.
On the seventh path of Labyrinth, as I prepared to leave, the way back home would indeed include a weave.
On the eighth path of Labyrinth, as I began to focus,
I left behind the story and the hocus-pocus.
On the ninth path of Labyrinth, I noticed more,
now with open mind, ideas began to soar.
On the tenth path of Labyrinth, from all the winding change,
broader vision and depth, expanded range.
On the eleventh path of Labyrinth, I considered steps I made,
and all the choices that had been conveyed.
On the twelfth path of Labyrinth, I thought that I was done and then realized in life, I had only just begun.

Opportunity Invited

TLS 365 Experience #267
November 22, 2017

Laying out the canvas labyrinth for a walk later on in the afternoon, I set up the room and then went about finishing tasks. Sitting in an adjacent room working, small light hearted could be heard and as the sound escalated and endured, it piqued curiosity, so I went to investigate and nearing, the sound of children playing were coming from the room with the labyrinth. Not wishing to disturb, I peeked an eye around the corner and found three young children skipping about and playing on the labyrinth. Observing from a distance it brought a smile to see then run around and stir up the energy.

Walking back to the work at hand, the thought occurred, when you lay out a labyrinth, you invite all kinds of opportunity.

Bless and Be Blessed

TLS 365 Experience #172
Aug. 19, 2017

I had a lot on my mind as I went out for a walk, all family oriented. By the church there was a labyrinth I would pass on my walk and at times it intrigued me enough to walk and at other times I preferred to walk the terrain to where I was going and back again. In walking today, I thought I would invite the family and when I came to the where the church was in my walk, the labyrinth seemed to be my path of progression.

I recognized right away that the separate paths were walks with different family members and now understand why the labyrinth drew me in.  As I brought up the conversation of one, it led into the conversation of the next family member until I had reached a point of conclusion in the center. There I noticed what was similar in all and how everyone of them could benefit by my blessing and not my confusion.

As I walked back out, each path was a family member’s blessing and when I came to the end, just being in the blessing mode made me feel the blessings too. Grateful for this walk.

Adjustments

TLS 365 Experience #153
July 30, 2017

Experimenting with groups, I asked one who were walking the labyrinth with me on this day to really take notice of the way they walked in the labyrinth and to be keenly aware of the labyrinth, their body movement and the way they took steps inward and outward. Then we walked again and I asked each to walk differently than the last person had, to adjust or change in a natural way the way they stepped in the labyrinth.

The conversation after the walk was rich. It made them more aware at first of the way they moved in life and where many held tension, it was released and noticed. Their was a greater appreciation in just becoming mindful in the first walk. In the second it became inventive and many found that they improved their walk by adjusting their posture and noting their bodies. Others found that they extended themselves in a way that was uncomfortable and adjusted throughout and others thought it playful.

Of the many epiphanies that were shared, the ones that were most moved realized how much they move themselves and their minds to adjust to please others. It became a metaphor of how we walk in life.

Many Ways to Walk

TLS 365 Experience #72
May 11, 2017

Today I shared the labyrinth with the members of a class I was teaching.

They had never walked and found the experience exciting and curious.

It was just the right outdoor moment to shift our day from consumable knowledge to the remaining experiential activities planned. As they completed their walk I asked them to walk in silence back to our classroom and there, they found printouts of finger labyrinths to then write out their experiences.

Many shared they wanted to walk again and found that the writing gave them both that choice and a voice of expression that they may not have shared out loud.

Of Labyrinth Awareness

TLS 365 Experience #26
March 26, 2017

Of footprints and stones and what ever is plentiful,
a labyrinth can be created.

With purpose a design forms
and with perspective it develops
to unwind in the mind
and then
into the available material.

Where the walk can create the labyrinth,
the labyrinth can create the walk.

Be open,
curious
and play
with what comes.

This is my Awareness.
