Am I stitching with Ariadne’s Thread? Yes, I definitely think so. I am quite convinced that my prayerful labyrinth walking requires me to take personal action toward creating the peace I am praying for.
I have come to believe that Ariadne is about more than just the hero and the labyrinth. She was – and is – an incredible woman who demonstrated her resiliency by reinventing her life as needed to keep up with her circumstances. Never forget that she saved more people than just Theseus!
I have had an amazing and grace-filled life, and in the lead-up to this, my 60th, birthday, I have become more and more aware of the “Hearts of Gratitude”
Ariadne’s Thread has been slightly neglected of late. I didn’t mean for that to happen, but sometimes a break is good for the soul, and “Introducing: Walking in the World”
Merry Blessings from my heart and hands to you and yours!
Mythologically, walking into a forest is stepping into something unknown where all manner of adventure and danger might lurk.
If we were chatting together about pilgrimage, pilgrim to pilgrim, heart to heart, I would comfortably admit that pilgrimage can take us much deeper than we ever expected to go.
We began, as pilgrims often do, at the Tour St Jacques, aligning our footsteps with the ancient path and the hearts and souls/soles of those who have made the journey before us.
Jeff finds things. Walking with him always turns up interesting finds…
A few years ago, I learned that the people we “chance” to meet while traveling can become dear and lifelong friends. It’s as it the Universe conspires to cross our paths, and all we have to do is recognize those heart connections when they happen.
