During the summer of 2011, I quite literally stumbled upon this labyrinth while on a morning walk with my mother-in-law in a remote location, about an hour outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico. We had not set out to find this destination. The circular shaped barn and labyrinth seemed to spring up out of nowhere.
This photo captures the healing essence, the beauty, and the awe of all it all — of walking side-by-side with God in nature, of the mystery of the labyrinth. It also reminded me of a Sufi poem by Rumi:
But where is this gathering?
– I don’t know, my little angel
But do the others know?
– No, they don’t know either
How can you go to a gathering without
knowing where it is?
– It suffices to walk, just walk
Those who are invited will find the way.
I invite you today — Explore your inner labyrinth. Trust you will find your way. Love, Leslie
