Our next labyrinth walk Thursday February 2, falls on Groundhog Day, a day associated with shadow. For some weeks I’ve been feeling a shadow of uncertainty lurking in the question what do we do now?
Omid Safi, Director of Duke University’s Islamic Studies Center: Let us love one another, for love is God. Let us become this strong, fierce, and unconditional love. Let us keep track of this love, because it is when this love moves into the public square that we call it justice.
Rumi: You and I have to live as if you and I never heard of a you and an I.
Wolfgang Agotta: Imagine a time and place where you can discover your own path to inner peace, where you can temporarily suspend the insecurities of the world and go forward on a path that you can trust: one which will not deceive you or lead you astray. Imagine traveling this path with full assurance that you will safely get to the end of your journey even though you may feel lost and not know what is around the next turn. This is the labyrinth experience.This is a metaphor for trusting in the process of life.
