11.14.17 … Cynthia Bourgeault’s The Wisdom Jesus: the 10,000 intrusions when we meditate and that each pushing away of the intrusion is a attempt to reach back to God …

“Solvitur Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2017 Labyrinth Walks, private labyrinth – Charlotte NC:

Walking together is sometimes food for my soul. And today I enjoyed a walk with a labyrinth friend. She picked me up and we went to this private labyrinth that I have walked several times but not in the last 18 months.

The labyrinth is located in the private backyard of a very enthusiastic labyrinth facilitator and artist. And the labyrinth reflects her personality. This labyrinth is a full Chartres but on a diminished size. The paths are grass and moss and the boundaries are small river stones. There are chimes, water features, sculptures, etc.

This morning the weather was forbidding, but we made it as hospitable as we could. As we walked, my mind repeatedly wandered and I thought of the lecture from Cynthia Bourgeault’s The Wisdom Jesus where we talked about the 10,000 intrusions when we meditate and that each pushing away of the intrusion is a attempt to reach back to God. Today my walk was interrupted by thoughts of … the compass orientation of the labyrinth, whether the moss was “planted,” whether the sun would break through the overcast sky, the noisy garbage trucks, the wonderful forested garden …

Thank you Catherine for sharing your labyrinth and Toni for sharing your time.
