The difference between a labyrinth and a maze is important. A maze is a puzzle. You may or may not find the solution…or your way out.
A labyrinth on the other hand is a single path that winds around a center but always brings you to the center, if you keep walking; and will always bring you out if you stay on the path.
Labyrinths were originated as a spiritual discipline. Some say to replace being able to go on pilgrimage to a holy city. Others say they are more ancient than that and simply replicate the holy journey we all take that is our life.
Today I realized that taking the corporate job was like when you walk a labyrinth and you think you are reaching the center but suddenly the path takes you way out the outer boundary again. Still circling the center but further from it and at the same time closer.
Taking the corporate job feels further away from living in the center of who I am, but intellectually I know that if I keep walking the path, I’m actually getting closer to the center every day.
