Walking a free-form labyrinth

Good Evening, God!

Imagine my delight, God, when I was lead by a dear friend up to the the labyrinth at the Saint Anthony’s Retreat Center.  My delight was compounded by finding it was a “free-form” labyrinth.  It wandered in among the trees in a clearly marked path . . . but not with a clearly observable pattern.  Indeed, no pattern at all.

How much more like our journey through life is that!  Doubling back and then back again . . . I often think, as I make a mistake yet again . . . haven’t I been here before?

With an ordinary labyrinth you can see at the beginning where you are going to end up, And you can see the pending loops and the doubling back places.  That is comforting.  But not like my life.  This morning’s wandering through the trees was much more reminiscent of my life.  I suppose they constructed the labyrinth that way because they were fitting into the space available.  And again, God, that reminds me of my life!

I’m smiling, God.  What fun to feel the comparisons and to feel Your Presence here at the retreat on Centering Prayer.
