3: Letting Go

Posted by occwebsite
02nd Apr 2021
Take some slow deep breaths and relax. Begin to let go of the tensions in your body. Feel the pressure and busyness slipping away.   As you draw breath think of how your body is using oxygen. It is being carried to every part of your body. Feel the life it brings.   As you exhale, you breathe out carbon dioxide which you don’t need. Trees and plants take this

7: Outward Journey

As you journey out of the labyrinth take your encounter with God with you. Reflect on how this encounter might affect or change you.   John says that God became flesh and blood and moved into the neighbourhood. Think about how you might allow God to be made flesh in your life and in your neighbourhood.   Freely, freely you have received. Freely, freely give... Take: eat. Take: out.

You are out in space Floating, weightless, calm and secure Seeing things clearer than ever before   Watching the earth Listening to its uninterrupted stream of noise From the silence of infinite space   From here there are no visible countries It’s not like a map or a globe There are no lines for territories No colours to mark out countries, historical separations, human definitions... Just rock, sea, forest and

You are on a journey, a journey towards the light that is God. A journey towards the centre of the labyrinth. And out again. A journey towards God. And out again. A journey of receiving... and then giving. Walk with expectancy. As you journey, reflect on what you see, hear, think. Expect to discover the wonderful, the fantastic. Open your eyes wide, Use your senses This is no senseless journey.

11. Impressions

In front of you is some sand You remove your socks and shoes Tread in the sand to leave your footprints Step back and look at them Where you have walked has left an impression   What will be left of us when we’ve left, when we’re gone under down into darkness, the earth and memory? When our dust and ashes have shaken themselves down and reverted to their original

Sound engineers speak of two things – signal and noise.  The signal is the meaningful part of a transmission.   The noise is all the unwanted stuff that interferes with our ability to hear and understand the signal. Our lives are full of noise: so much information, so many messages, all competing for our attention. We find it hard to find the signal.   Take some time to identify the

“You created my inmost being   You knit me together in my mother’s womb   I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made   Your works are wonderful, I know that full well” When you look in the mirror what do you see? Do you, like the psalmist, see someone that is “fearfully and wonderfully made”? Does what you see make you want to praise or cringe? What
