In honor of completing my website and opening a new location in San Francisco I decided to spend an afternoon in quiet refection walking the beautiful labyrinth at Grace Cathedral. If you haven’t been there I highly recommend it. They have an indoor and outdoor labyrinth and both are lovely. I walked them both. It was a nice way to spend the afternoon, stepping out of time for a bit and letting my mind rest.
As I walked, occasionally I would pass others on the labyrinth. I enjoyed these silent meetings of my fellow human, deciding without words how to pass on the path. There was always a kind smile to be had. There is something so soothing and rejuvenating about labyrinths. A sense of calm expansiveness, focused energy and a quiet mind.
When I arrived at the center of the labyrinth I stood there for some time, soaking in the stillness of my mind, the quiet of my body and freedom that I felt. Anything is possible was the message to me that day.
I stood there longer and allowed that message to really take root in me. When I felt I was ready to leave the comfort of this space I began my journey back into the world. I again followed the winding path, leaving the way I had entered. My intriguing discovery – the path was the same, I was different. I rejoined the world with focus, excitement, and strength.
