Labriynth lesson




What the brochure says:

The labyrinth is a sacred path that will bring you to new understandings in your life journey. It offers a quiet retreat from the hurry up pace of daily activities. The labyrinth is 60 feet in diameter and more than 100 feet long and follows the 11-circuit pattern of the labyrinth inlaid on the floor of Chartres Cathedral. It doesn't matter where you enter the path but follow it through to its end.  Start again if you have to.  Reflect silently and exit the same way you entered.

My experience:

La la la  I am walking, La La la la da di this is fun. La la la  am I almost there.  WHAT - I am being redirected. Aargh,  La la aargh where do I enter now. REDIRECTED AGAIN??  the center is right in my view.  Aargh this thing goes on forever. La la new path. Oh wait (insert deep breath here) I get it. Slow down. Be patient. You will definitely get there soon. I wonder what is waiting when I get to the center. La la la what a peaceful, beautiful place.

 My take away:

In this beautiful thing called life - stay focused, surround yourself with people and places you love, stay calm and be patient.

I love labriynths. I'm glad you were able to take something away from your experience.
