“A spiritual discipline is designed to release control to the ego so the ‘Light behind the mind’ can come into focus. This is the silence of the ages that gives us rest. This is where we meet God.” A clear statement by Lauren Artress, author of Walking a Sacred Path, about the Divinity of the labyrinth.
I have experienced the power the labyrinth ~ the silent weaving in and out, the magic of Divinity coming through. I hold it to be a holy experience. So it was a treat beyond treat to walk on the labyrinth at Jeannette Howards home! Wow! to have a labyrinth at your house, to have the opportunity to marry together heaven and earth in your own backyard!
I can not express strongly enough how important it is to bring ourselves into a quiet space to receive. It is in that space that we can let go of our ego desires, our grievances, our fears and receive an essence of the bigger picture.
A few weeks back, I was having a floor sanded and refinished. A miscommunication happened and the young man in charge of the job made a mistake. I became exasperated. But, not because of the mistake, but, because I was exhausted, in terrible physical pain and behind in my work. I went outside and worked in my garden a bit. Being so connected with the Earth calmed me, brought me back to balance and reminded me of what truly matters. I went back into the house and apologized, baked homemade cookies and made peace with the young man. He was so happy to have the cookies, but, also to not have been made wrong. I said to him “it is just a floor. It’s not world peace that we are trying to achieve here, it’s a floor…” We both laughed, the fissure was closed and harmony was restored.
