“I should embrace the unknown a little bit…” – Vancouver Public Labyrinth – False Creek Seawall

View this post on Instagram

@i.amavocado Sunday, we came across this cool little labyrinth stone circle by False Creek. Intrigued by one of my friend’s friend explanation of how it is meant as a reflective meditative journey/walk to contemplate and to feel, we of course had to try this fun little exercise out. The 3 of us tried it. I was surprise – it worked. The 3 of us came to the exit with very different thoughts and emotions invoked: a sense of peace with decisions made, an openness to what the world is offering followed by noticing three simple words ‘Love is Everywhere’ etched on a log ahead, and oddly the rush of anxiousness wondering when am I going to get the heck out of this circle. Perhaps it is the slowing down to realize how far we’ve come along. Perhaps it highlighted the present moment. Perhaps it is the unknown of how many more turns before I get there; I should embrace the unknown a little bit, lol. Fast forward. Today I did the grouse grind after work. My mind was only focused on the goal at top. There was no musing, only pushing myself harder, faster, stronger – feeling my legs and my lungs. The circle, the grind, and the musing! Try it, if not for the musing, for the curiosity. It’s good to slow down once in a while 🙂 #musings #labyrinth #falsecreek #grousegrind #meditationtime

“Sunday,

We came across this cool little Labyrinth stone circle by False Creek.

Intrigued by one of my friend’s friend explanation of how it is meant as a reflective meditative journey/walk to contemplate and to feel,

We of course had to try this fun little exercise out.

The 3 of us tried it.

I was surprise – it worked.

The 3 of us came to the exit with very different thoughts and emotions invoked:

  • a sense of peace with decisions made,
  • an openness to what the world is offering followed by noticing three simple words ‘Love is Everywhere’ etched on a log ahead,
  • and oddly the rush of anxiousness wondering when am I going to get the heck out of this circle.

Perhaps it is the slowing down to realize how far we’ve come along.

Perhaps it highlighted the present moment.

Perhaps it is the unknown of how many more turns before I get there;

I should embrace the unknown a little bit, lol.

Fast forward.

Today I did the grouse grind after work.

My mind was only focused on the goal at top.

There was no musing, only pushing myself harder, faster, stronger – feeling my legs and my lungs.

The circle, the grind, and the musing!

Try it, if not for the musing, for the curiosity.

It’s good to slow down once in a while 🙂 “
