Topic: The Unknown

The human condition as such makes wrong what is not understood, and the labyrinth illuminates a brighter, lighter realization of what is possible to understand moving unknown into a new appreciative holding space of great capacity to explore at many levels of knowing.

The  Message:
The unknown is a wonderful topic for the magical metaphors and messages of October. The unknown is always present with the known. In yesterday’s workshop that dealt with the joy of the soul, sole walking offered new interpretations of life from the knowledge of what we know, the sight of which we base that on and taking a detour onto the unknown path with blindfolds and a number of activities.

In groups of three, each triad made their own spiral labyrinth, without ever having done it before. They took the messages of the blindfold awareness from a previous activity to walk with greater insight into body mechanics and integration and realized a greater value in our three point message that began the experience. Each moved from knowledge, to wisdom

The Magic: 
The magic occurred in the realizations of what they didn’t think they could do in building the labyrinth, to creating a basic structure to use. In walking with blindfolds they realized how much more they could see and walking with the unknown became the messy labyrinth of miracles appreciating and learning to trust what was unknown, messed up or seemingly somewhat of a mistake to their preconditioned ideas. It became a higher level of insight that didn’t just understand, it expanded to see more realms of known from the largeness of the unknown.



Daily Insights : On this 281st day…
Walk in great appreciation of what is unknown. Don’t be in a hurry to make it known, allow it to innovate and percolate and then become more than just known.

Solution Path

TLS 365 Experience #156
Aug. 3, 2017

Getting a group on the labyrinth during a workshop was a wonderful way to get everyone connected.  I found a group that was just not connecting with each other in the material that was presented. As the material worked well with other groups, it was a question.

We had the thought to put everyone on the labyrinth and walk with a few questions. As they completed, we sat down for a discussion and found a very real cultural misunderstanding had occurred. Using the labyrinth helped everyone to understand the point, the process and the practical application as intended and also where the error in judgement had occurred without an issue.

If we had not thought to find a quick way to get everyone communicating in this way, we would have missed a valuable lesson into the cultural implication that had been misinterpreted. No one had a clue that this had not been part of our plan and without skipping a beat, we were back on the path of purpose and progress.
