MORE LESSONS FROM THE LABYRINTH

I've been walking in the #Labyrinth with Kazalette Kiepiel here at St Francis Health Centre.  As always, it presents itself in many ways as an allegory for Life.

As I walk, I find myself every now and then wondering how I got to a particular place and how I will ever get out of the labyrinth.  Then I am reminded that the labyrinth, like Life, brought me to the place where I am at any given moment and the labyrinth, like Life, will provide a route out again.  That is because you can never get lost in a labyrinth - either you retrace your steps to where you came from or you go forward to your destination.  Even if you are not sure where you are in your life, you need to remember that you are here now and that you cannot get lost.  As with the labyrinth, sometimes I just need to remember that I don't have to keep figuring Life out for myself, because perhaps it has already been figured out for me.

When I am walking the labyrinth, if I start anticipating reaching the centre or the end, I find myself getting impatient.  When I just enjoy the walk and place myself in the present moment, the walk become timeless and each moment becomes light.

If you've never walked a labyrinth before, I strongly recommend you find one and do so.  It really is a walk of discovery.
