A few weeks ago, I enjoyed a lovely walk through a labyrinth.
I experienced an expanded symbolism of this labyrinth… deeper layers than had before in other like experiences…
The stones that created the structure of the labyrinth came to life and took on a whole new symbolic meaning to me…
The stones are like life experiences… all shaping the multitude of experiences that make up the “life” of the soul…the structure of the path, or journey.
Some of the stones represent experiences of immense joy, while others may represent moments of extreme sadness.
And yet, when you step away and view it from a birds-eye view, you can see how it all congeals. How it all comes together and it “works.”
Just as it is.
Embracing every stone, every experience, as the structure of the life path. No revisions required! Just pure Appreciation for every stone (experience), that creates the structure of the journey. Embracing each and every one, as each one before the other led to what was, and is now… None of them “bad”, even the ones that were challenging situations!
Each and every stone, (representative of every moment, every experience), of value, that creates the structure, the artwork of the totality of the journey…
Sometimes, we perceive that we are getting further away from “center,” when in fact, it is just a part of the path, that can appear to the linear mind, to be leading us away from center. Like a labyrinth, the journeys of life, weave in and out, seeming to get closer and then further away from the center and back and forth it goes… when in fact, no matter what the physical eyes and mind perceive, we are all the while, journeying back to center and furthermore, are the entirety of all of it; one with it all.
Sometimes, we just need to take a step back, take a deep breath, allow all to be just as it is, free from judgement of our perceived “pit-falls”, embracing all of ourselves, aligning with appreciation of the entire creative “picture” we have created and continue to create. Every “stone”, every experience, every aspect of self, is of value, a gift to the Soul’s expansion.
You are the inspiration of your magical journey, your life experiences, the strokes of the brush upon the canvas called life ❤
