After several months of change (during which I left behind my back yard labyrinth, and am still pondering how to create a large, portable one), I am returning to my online journal with a new focus: Ignite Delight. In case you’re wondering what that means, one of my “mentors,” Abraham, says you must “make a decision that you’re going to be happy one way or another – €”no matter what. – But if you are relying on the external world to make this possible, you are coming at it from the wrong direction. The happiness comes from within you, and is then radiated to the world around you. I invite you to take this challenge: each day, come up with one thing that you are happy about. It can be as simple as seeing a butterfly, or as profound as reconnecting with someone whose relationship you thought was lost to you. In the next weeks I’ll be journaling about some of my own delights.


Lighten Up

I dedicated my labyrinth on winter solstice of 2005. Several friends were present, as well as my 8 year old goddaughter, who ran and skipped along the path, laughing and singing. She reminded me that I often take life’s journey too seriously. Since then, I have begun dancing at the turns of the large, canvas Chartres pattern which Jeannette Stokes brings to Asheville each spring. I laugh more. I feel lighter. Delighted. Enlighted?
