I was in Toronto yesterday with Katherine again! After we shopped and shopped and shopped for the perfect dress for my sister’s wedding, we were naturally tired. Exhausted! We took the back door out of the Eaton centre to rest outside in the beautiful weather and I am so glad we did this because we found the Labyrinth of a Million Dreams!
Okay, it wasn’t exactly the Labyrinth of a Million Dreams, but it was a labyrinth none the less, and a very interesting one at that.
It started when I saw a women walking strangely around this huge cobble-stone circle. “What is she doing?” I thought to myself, “She looks so lost!”
In front of the circle there are two signs explaining what it is and what to do with it. Katherine ran over to it and then ran back, “It’s a labyrinth!” she excitedly exclaimed, “What? A labyrinth?! I love labyrinths!” I replied. This is a true story, I actually do love labyrinths! I went to Hawaii this past December, and there too, was a labyrinth similar to the one we were facing in front of us.
The labyrinth in Hawaii was painted on a wooden floor. This one was cobblestone. A path is created in their design. You are to enter the labyrinth with a question or intention and by the time you have completed walking it, you should have some sort of answer. It’s very meditative.
I was soooo tired though. Walk the labyrinth? Umm, ummmmm. The Katherine said, “It originated from France.” Call me obsessed with that country, but that was the necessary push to walk the thing.
Here is the entrance…
I went in with a question and an intention. I was putting a lot of faith in this walk way or sorts.
What is interesting is that halfway through, right when I asked my (personal) question in my mind, I looked up and this is what I saw…
We finished walking the labyrinth and Katherine said to me, “Did it answer all your questions?”I wasn’t sure if it had because I was missing FBF and part of the intention was that if this thing really worked than he would call me at the end. No phone call, oh well, it was a little hockey anyways.
We grabbed our stuff and ventured back into the mall to make our way back home. A soon as my mind left the thoughts of the labyrinth (like three minutes after we left it) my phone rang. It was FBF!
