so i got a assigned a little project.
i love a good challenge, don't you?
you need to go to grace cathedral. walk the labyrinth. mediate. what comes up for you?
i learned that the labyrinth can be used to quiet the mind, find balance, encourage meditation and insight, and even be used for celebration. it's a non-denominational and cross-cultural tool for well-being.
seems about right to me. in light of celebrating twenty six years around the sun and true to libra form - finding balance, oh yes please! - this exercise was right up my alley.
there are three stages of the walk. as you walk toward the center you are releasing and letting go of the details of your life to shed distractions. once the center is reached this is the time of receiving what is there for you to receive. and finally, returning on the path in which you entered where the healing forces at work in the world are felt.
each time you walk the labyrinth you become more empowered to find and do the work for which you feel your soul is reaching.
i love this.
it was a peaceful and sunny fall weekend afternoon. things were still. and, quite calm. everything is as it should be was the feeling in the air.
i have the potential to be so happy. i have the potential to be so happy. i have the potential to be so happy.
that's all that came to me. over and over.
