Love to walk in labyrinths. Each is really unique. I used to walk in circles! Lot's could put me into a tailspin! Now, each new turn in a labyrinth offers a different point of view, a shift of perspective, an opportunity for a new vision. I give great thanks to so many met on this journey. Great family, teachers and friends. Two white cats then two white dogs (among others) all have brought me to the edge of awareness. They speak forever thru my heart of the love and connections we share with each other every single sacred now moment of our lives. They defined 'unconditional' for me and brought it gradually into my everyday.
Thanksgiving Day labyrinth walk, cloudy, mid-afternoon... gusty, it was... the southeast wind lifting the tarps of the wood pile, blowing the rest of the Linden and Cherry leaves around the paths in swirls... little vortexes (vortices?) of wispy energy twisting around the curves of the stone-lined paths. Wind walkers dancing along the path reminding me of hay twisting into floating spirals in a hot summer hay field... dust swirling up off the dirt road, water spiraling between rocks and trees in a local stream.... or below the old river dam... How easy it was back then to get 'caught up' in those little swirls... and just drift away for a moment.... hhhmmm.... maybe in these moments, we move closer to who we really? I walk in the wind, along the path... I AM THAT, IAM! I give thanks! :)
