I was interested in labyrinths, mandalas, and mazes and was thinking how they are similar, different, what makes them special and so forth.
To be honest with you I thought a labyrinth is a lot like the path one takes in life. It has a definite beginning point. Simple. The path is for you and you alone walk through it.
Along the way there are many twists and turns, but it's still just your path. When you reach the center you turn around and begin the return along the same path, but a different direction--hopefully after your life is half over you can look back at it with new vision.
And finally you get to the end, which is where you began, and exit. Thanks.
