Journey Inward

The symbolism is one of paradoxes. Labyrinths appeal to the basic human desire to create order out of confusion. Labyrinth walkers get lost to find themselves. They become disoriented to the world around them to become oriented to their higher selves.

Also, labyrinths are just fun in the way that all puzzles are fun. They lure passersby into a game, a dance of diversion and engagement.

In the era of smartphones, GPS and geotagging it’s a wonderful gift to lose yourself for even a few minutes. So next time you want to go hiking, instead of going out there, try going within. You may be surprised by what you discover.

    Beautiful! I walked a labyrinth at the last meditation retreat I went to – it is amazingly restorative.
