Many messages come to us as we walk, meditate, contemplate, go about our business. In busy times and quiet we can gain insights. Often, when we are deliberative we become aware. Below is an entry from a pilgrim who recently walked seeking clarity and insight.
“Dearest of friends, The Labrynth (sic) told me clearly many things but the final message was “just because you can’t see the finish line doesn’t mean you are going the wrong way”. Reminds me of Grandma’s Marathon nine years ago, I new I was just 3 miles from the finish line but the buildings blocked the view! With Todd’s help, I carried on across to finish the 26.1miles, injured but laughing.
This autumn I have walked the labyrinth just to walk it, trying to seek nothing, look for the beauty in the natural elements, and to just “be.” I often take the camera and capture interesting angles, pretty colors, a view with a mood. I placed the geodes and rocks from late summer trips and quarry outings.
Today Susan Elliott-Bryant and “Buddy” walked the labyrinth with me.
She pointed out that this is also a good exercise for a dog to learn pathways.
