Last year in April I walked the labyrinth at the basement of Marble Collegiate Church.

Labyrinth

Labyrinth

This is what I wrote during that walk:

 

Go forward in sacredness

 

You do not go forward

without the sacredness /

unless you invite the sacredness

 

How sacred and special

this Life is

 

Every part is just as

valuable as every other part

Before you know it,

you’re there.

It’s the journey that is sacred

There is no piece that is more valuable than any other

It is all sacred space

This is a sacred walk.

Life, is a sacred walk.

Stand still, until you

feel, acknowledge,

Breath the sacredness

with every breath:

If the breath is not sacred,

stand still until it is,

until you can walk with

sacred breath again.

The path will always have

difficulty, that is the

nature of the path.

Relationship With Yourself

This is so important. So important.

To build and have an ongoing compassionate relationship with yourself.

You know you are trying hard. And if you’re not trying very hard, and this is bothering you, then start, love. Try harder to do what you need to do, and be what you need to be.

When you are trying, either from the beginning, or further on a certain road, you need to be ok with who you are, and where you are. Your challenges, or positive traits, may help describe how we live our lives, but we are not the culmination of everything we do. We are deeper. This is to say, you are more than what you think and see, and dont beat yourself down for what you observe. Change it, with an understanding of our humanity.
