The journey to our personal healing is much like a walk from the outer entrance to the labyrinth. Visually it looks like a short distance to the center but you discover that you go forward, back, left, right, all the way to the outer edge…not a straight line. Along the way, you will discover hidden trenches that you fall in and then must extricate yourself from. Try not to be disheartened when it appears that after all of your efforts you are moving backward, or you’ve found yourself in a hidden trap that you are struggling to free yourself from. And notice that your imagination is very powerful, sometimes placing you much closer to the goal, sometimes much farther away.
