Recently I led a retreat at our church where one of the options was to walk a labyrinth. I made some notes after I had walked it myself and came across them again a couple of days ago.
A labyrinth is not a maze, but a single path that leads to the centre. If you follow the path you cannot get lost. You will eventually get to the centre if you persist along the path, but there are lots of changes of direction along the way, and sometimes you seem to be heading directly away from where you want to go.
After walking the labyrinth I noted that there are stretches of straight road that we travel for a while. At other times the road twists and turns and it feels difficult to keep up with all the changes in direction and to keep our balance. Sometimes the change seems to come more quickly than we can cope with.
What changes are you facing at the moment?
Whether they are large or small, they can still make you feel off-balance. Hang on in there - you'll get there in the end.
I shall be linking this with art journal every day. Hope to see you there.
