This page is a transcription of reflections written in the book at the entrance to the labyrinth since 2013, or put in the comment box since 2020. Written reflections are transcribed here about twice a month. This page contains no reflections during a period in 2019-2020 when an unhappy person repeatedly removed the book until the book was replaced by the comment box.
Italics (like this) indicate words that were not written by visitors to the labyrinth. If the transcription shows the last name followed by an initial (“Katie J”) then Katie provided only the initial of her last name. If Katie wrote her last name in full, the transcript provides only the first letter of her last name followed by an underscore: “Katie J_” (because Katie might not want her full name on the internet). Mis-spelled words have been corrected (unless the mis-spelling seemed deliberate), periods and commas have been added, and obscenities deleted. If you do not find your comment here, someone removed your page. The forward slash "/" indicates a line break in a poetic text. Many people drew hearts (♥), smiley faces (☺), or peace symbols (☮), and a few people drew a symbol for"om" (ॐ), yin-yang (☯), infinity (∞), ☼, ★, or ☾.
The transcribed comments & reflections:
(This entry was stamped on the front page of the book in early April 2013:)
You are never alone. Life is an opportunity. Feel it. Live it. You are capable of anything. Do not be afraid to show gratitude, no matter what it will always help you grow. We are all connected, and you are my divine. Through love we can raise our vibrations and bring this world to a higher place. We are timeless. Together we are everything. Namaste. KJ

Look ahead for hope. Look behind to know where you came from. But look where you are. Be present. Be yourself and be sure. Read and write your own story!
Hello Stranger, My day was hectic and I stumbled across this. It was really a way to clear my mind and reflect in the solace offered by this labyrinth. I hope it helps you too. Also, do not ever give up. Like this labyrinth, your life is forged by you and you go at your pace. You are a beautiful individual and I hope you find yourself, even it is not here. Do not forget to smile either. Love always, Bethanie ♥
Things scattered about – pain and grass, rusted trash, all these things scattered about. I take this journey on my way out which I knew nothing about. But it’s OK its just fear. All that I need is everything here.
Like attracts like.

The sun is but a morning star.
7/28/13. Today I encountered the labyrinth located near my home in Flagstaff. This labyrinth helped to give me a new understanding and perspective on the simpler things in life. When I first entered the labyrinth I felt nothing. The signs seemed to explain that it helps relax and focus your mind. Within minutes my mind was enlightened and all other thoughts and worries simplified. This process helped me not take for granted things that could be taken away tomorrow. Life is a beautiful thing which can be hectic and I left that this labyrinth helped to focus my heart and soul. Thank you. – Brian L.
I keep coming back to this special place & it warms my heart each time. Today I share this visit with my special lil’ sis. XO - Jordan

I have started coming to this labyrinth as a way to meditate and now it has become part of my spiritual well-being. Each time I complete a circuit I find my connection to it grows stronger and I depart with a feeling of peace and solace. I like to leave gifts in the labyrinth to bring a sense of wonder to all others who walk it. I come here often so maybe you’ll meet me here one day. – Anjel.
27 Aug 2013. Peaceful dawn after 3 days of rain. Blooming here today: scarlet gilia, scarlet gaura, orange mallow, snakeweed, thinleaf four o’clock, redroot buckwheat, pale aster, purple aster, wild geranium, goldenrod, wild chrysanthemum, white yarrow, wheeler’s thistle. Jah bless!
Inside these words of thought, I feel a connection to my fellow man. I feel a road must be traveled that has been changed by those who proceeded before me. – Flynn R_

What if humans could fly? The travel agencies would collapse. It would start out as an experimental procedure. People would try to shut it down. The people who would survive would be the people in small towns like Flagstaff. The world would change. Thanks to Link for the idea.

28 Oct. I felt walking the labyrinth was amazingly peaceful. It was nearly magical. I love the energy here and most definitely plan to return. – Taylor
I love how the labyrinth takes you on a journey. It represents our lives and how it takes us in all sorts of directions – the beauty in this, however, is that every step of the way is filled with hope and discovery. We reach our destination in time, but realize that it was the walk the adventure that was more meaningful. God had a plan for each of us – one filled with adventure and discover – trust that plan – trust that path – trust the light set forth ahead of you – understand that there is hope, that you are beautiful – and that you will find peace. CG
Life is a beautiful thing – cherish it, love it, discover it. The labyrinth represents how you have a path in life, take it as you go, trust God, because in the end he will lead you to what you desire. – Brianna D.

Dec 3, 2013. I’m 21 years old and I cut myself for the 1st time 3 weeks ago. I was at my lowest point and felt so alone. And afraid. But there is so much beauty all around – like this simple labyrinth – how can I not see love in it? I have rediscovered my joy and found my loving friends. I am thankful for them in this season. ♥ BRS

1-23-2014. Live is difficult. We must accept that. When you can accept that, the fact the life is difficult then becomes irrelevant. Life, then in a sense becomes easy. Kelan, in the end everyone will be happy. That is what I truly want the most. Love, Vinh L_
1-24-14. An analogy shared by a good friend… Many people view the heart as a cup that is filled with love, spreading the love sparingly so as not to run out. What is forgotten is that love is an endless reservoir… an ocean, that cannot be depleted. So, your heart can always be full of love to be shared… There is NO limit. I love you and you are always with me as am I with you. You are infinitely great. Kelan. PS Your dog is eating a tree right now. ♥

Welcome to the labyrinth. Lauren 1/25
1/28: Nirvana, Zen, locked in, the zone. All of these things come from one place. It’s a mind state. There are no pills no magic chants, nothing truly special that you have to do to reach these places. I have mecca built. It’s alive in my head. A sandy shore. A palm hut. Nothing on the inside other than a comfy chair to think and a sink with fresh water. It’s always sunny here. It’s the place I go when the rest of the world seemingly turns its back. And I never felt closer to my place than right now. The labyrinth clears your head. It reminds you that you can try to map out where you are going, try to look ahead. But as soon as you take another step, you’re looking a whole new puzzle. The labyrinth doesn’t make me feel lost and hopeless like the name might suggest. It reminds you that all you need for a new look on life is one more step. CTR.E 1/28/13
To think I first ran from my apartment and bolted down the Urban Trail to run away. Away from my problems, my fears, my inadequacies. And to my surprise, I find this place. I won’t lie, at first I thought the sign was college joke but what a pleasant surprise to find it wasn’t. I always tell myself I know it takes two to tango, that requires two people to argue. But I let the one I love most dance alone. How silly I am to have never noticed all this time. I believed I was the only one hurting but in fact I was causing it. I thank the labyrinth, the pleasure walk down corridors were a blessing, and once I reached the middle and the wind chimes started chiming as I gazed upon the trinkets, I came to realization. I am not alone. – Mimi, February 7, 2014

Thank you for a wonderful journey. Mine was filled with quietness, reflection, and truth. Not often do I find many experiences that fulfill those qualities. We are creatures of the earth but very often I forget this. I love being surprised and amazed by others, and this journey definitely accomplished that. Thank you again. Best, Corley B, 2/23/14 Phoenix AZ.

You’re still breathing. That’s enough.
Worst labyrinth ever. F***.

Came to show a friend how I escape from the madness in a beautiful place. All my love, randy 3-4-14
3-7-2014. Never been up here before, but I came here with my friends thinking it would be nice story to tell Chloe, a girl I like. Got to the center of the maze and left a Satyr token card from Magic the Gathering and the ticket I got from a hypnotist show I saw at the beginning of my freshman year. Left ‘em, prayed, and then I got a text from one of my underclassmen from high school who I consider a little sister. I love her so much like family. Frank F_
3-7-14. Today I took my best friend from Scottsdale here. I always like to leave something in the center. This would be a great place to geocache. NH

After a while I got this pen to work and I would like to tell you why I left Donatello in the center. I purchased him as a child and that keychain was my rock, my salvation, my redemption. As a child my stepfather mentally, physically, and sexually abused me the keychain represented something I idolized and wanted to become. I held it every night and went to sleep always thinking tomorrow would be better, I will be better. I finally have the courage to part with it because I have come to terms and found forgiveness in my hear. To whoever picks it up I it does same for them. Signed, a mended heart

Thank you, this place brought peace to me. After reading some of what people here said, I think everyone who comes here feels the magic in this place. Love is the key to everything, the meaning of life. Love yourself, love others, love everything. Appreciate the positive. Accept the negative. And be happy for the next breath you take. – M.C. K_ 4-27-14 5:27PM
I accidentally happened upon this place with a friend and a dandelion and I finally knew my wish and blew: I wish that my life manifests into a labyrinth that whichever path I choose finds me in bright, positive, beautiful places like here. I love you J ♥ Elyse J
5-3-14. I stumbled upon this place in the afternoon when I looked up and saw a group of people walking in strange ziz-zag patterns looking at the ground. At first I thought I was witnessing some strange cult but walking closer revealed to me the labyrinth. I kept thinking the whole time that I want to bring a dear friend of mine here to experience it with him. I think I’m still holding out hope that in such beautiful places as this he could fall in love with me.
Today Elyse M_ & Torey Z went on a wonderful adventure! More to come…
5-3-14. Dropped acid…

“I see God in their suffering eyes, which are reflected in mine.” So I will serve with Kayla’s conviction.

Kayla was murdered by the terrorists in Feb 2015 (5 months after this commenct was written). She was 26 years old.

There's nothing left to say anymore... She's right in saying that. Who knew you could f** up so many times in a year and 10 months. No apologies will win her back, no words can even wavr save a friendship. Sometimes things happen for a reason but I just wich this hadn't. I think that out of all the things I have ever missed, wheter it's basevall, my family, or my firends, I definitely miss her the most. The's right... there really is nothing left to say anymore and until I find the words again I will always feel completely lost. S ___
Lately all I've been thinking is how everything is my fault... all the pain I've been through, every person that's hurt me, every migraine and headache UI've gotten. So many people have hurt me and the only common factor in any of the situations has been me. If I'm the only common factor it has to be me that's the problem, right? I feel like I deserve all the pain I've been through. I feel like I don't deserve to be happy, I don't deserve my friends that hold me together when all I feel is broken. AB
9-29-2014 Today I came here with my second family because I couldn't be with my first & foremost. Can I admit something? I thought I was with some really good friends last year and they ended up leaving me. So is it bad that I'm scared the same thing is gonna happen again? I know they say the love me and will always be be here fore me but there's still a part of me that's afraid of getting hurt of left behind. I'm usually very open about just about everything but I'm afraid that's gonna hurt me again like last year at about this time. That's why I miss my family and my mom most of all. Family is forever. RIP Tanya Fay, extraordinary wife and mother. Proverbs 3.
Why do I use the word "I" so much. Why.. all I want is there to be an Us or We. All I want is there to be US, a group I can call my friends that I can trust. For now I feel like we are a group and we are all becoming closer every day. I am so happy to have found some friends. I don't want to disappoint any of them or be disliked or create conflict at all. I would hate that to happen... or my roommate who is becoming another brother and I want him to be happy and I want to be fair... I will do anything to show them, all of you if you reading this, I really want to stay in your lives and you in mine... I will do anything to make sure that happens because I'm not losing my best friends again. I know this sounds desperate. The thing I love most in this world is to see a smile on all the people around me. That is more important than my own happiness, but at the same time I am happiest when others area, thank you all for showing me this place. Let's stay friends. Daniel A. L.
I'm sorry to the people I've hurt. I'm sorry. I sorry grandma that you had to go through this. I will miss you.
I will become a better person. I will learn to love myself. I will learn to be happy.
Bertes 10-7-2014 & Maggie 10-7-2014. I love you.

It's nice to come to the labyrinth to do something besides smoke and drink and waste your life away. Refreshing.
Take in all things given from the universe. No question is why to the stars. Make a wish.... watch... them come true. And always give thanks along with praise to all things greater, You & Me. 5/30/95 Awake.
10-10-14. Today I was reminded that the shortest, most straightforward path you can take is not always as rewarding.

Allie - imagine life as beauty. This place defines it.
There are few words to describe the transformational beauty of the labyrinth. It is as if I have died and had a beautiful rebirth. I forfeited my soul to be cleansed by the labyrinth.

Nov 1st 2014. Tried. The word that had more meaning than Happy. Past, present, and no future hit my mind. You know words - use them. You have a brain - think. You have a heart - love.

As the wind blows and the sun shines I sit and listen to the bell chime. It was the first of November, I think you remember the night before, it was long burnt and embered. Bowls o' plenty, water bottle empty. This day need be easy, relaxation comes simply. A pabst blue ribbon blows in the wind. And the sunshine of silence, as the bell chimes in. - Uriah
Today I listened to the earth. I'm learning how to breathe. Let go and be happy and let the wind take away my worries. I'm learning how to calm down and how to love.

I would rather my spark burn out in a fiery blaze than to let it smolder in the ashes.
Dec 2014. Soaring in the skies that had always been beyond his reach, he felt like a champion, feet kicked the ground, arms bound in the feathers of his father's labor, which a little while later would be ashes, vapor. Cumbersome limbs, he heard the wind speak every time he made his wings beat. His father flew before him, and so the course was set. He said "Don't fly by the waves because your wings will get wet. But don't fly to high that the sun melts the wax, stay on my path son, follow my tracks. But Icarus, enamored with the feeling of flight, had to soar higher, get closer to the light. Beneath him was the world he left behind in search of better things, but to achieve that freedom he sacrificed everything. /Icarus, come out of the sky, you're flying too high. /Icarus heed your father's word, this isn't your territory. /No one even noticed when he fell and hit the sea. /If he needed help, would he have asked for it? /Probably he thought he was invincible, but on principle he burned. /So we who have never flown could learn from what he did. /If we burn, you burn with us.
On 3 Dec 2014, a jury did not indict the NY police officer who put Eric Garner in an illegal choke hold. Garner's last words: "I can't breathe." If I can't breathe, you can't breathe. If you can't breathe, I can't breathe. Breathe.
Today I learned that you may be expecting to go one way, but end up in the complete opposite direction. It's okay to have to step over puddles & duck under trees, because life has twists & curves & it's okay to take a wrong turn. When you struggle, you need only walk the path in your mind & remember that you always have a center, you always have a home, & you always have someone that loves you. Bee 12/14 PS Santa Claus is having a photo shoot below.
Today's experience filled me with calmness & closure. I have many wonderful memories in this space, shared with wonderful people. Flagstaff & this labyrinth have taught me a lot and will remain in my heart forever. Until next time... XO Jordan 12/14
My name is Flynn. I'm on my 11th tab and today I walked into the woods broken and left confident.
Jan 1 2015. Just returned to Flagstaff from the tropics and found a foot of fresh snow on the labyrinth. So peaceful. So lovely. The world is grand. Life is good.
I feel like you built this labyrinth just for me. Wow. You must really love me. But you have not met me. Well, it's a small town, maybe you have met me. But how did you know I would come? Thank you anyway.
Jan 8 2015, just after the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris. Imagine there's no countries. It isn't hard to do. Nothing to kill of die for. And no religion too. Imagine all the people living life in peace...
Jan 9, 2015. Je suis Charlie. Je suis Achmed. I am not afraid, at least not personally. But I am afraid that tens of thousands of people will suffer and die - most of them Muslims killed by Muslims - before Muslims and the rest of us find a way to live together in love.
All you need is love. I need love too. So does everyone.
Jan 11. What a muddy mess at the labyrinth today. It cannot be walked. Instead I stand here quietly and imagine walking it.... Hmmm, that works, kinda. I'll return when it is frozen.
Namaste. You are a beautiful being of light. Feel your soul and breath ignite in violet flame. We're all the same human consciousness expressing itself in so many ways. Lovely. You are here alive for a cosmic transformation. Be here now. I love you.

The labyrinth is like life itself. From moment to moment your direction, your path is changing. It is a long journey, but it's up to you to make the best of every moment no matter which direction you may be headed.
It's a pile of rocks! I walked immediately to the center. Get over your poetic h_s_ J

Friend, I have lost the way. /The way leads on. / Is there another way? / The way is one. / I must retrace the track. / It’s lost and gone. / Back, I must travel back! / None goes there, none. / Then I’ll make here my place. / The road leads on. / Stand still and set my face. / The road leaps on! / Stay here, for ever stay. / None stays here, none. / I cannot find the way. / The way leads on. / Oh places I have passed! / That journey’s done. / And what will come at last? / The road leads on. -- “The way” by Edwin Muir 1887-1959)

☮ To whomever may read this. It was written March 30th 2015. Hello! I take this walk, like you might, to understand myself, who I am, my worth, my limitations. I enjoy the quiet that the night brings, the peace it sets, the beauty the moon brings. Understanding tonight that as an Artist I am lost and blessed at the same time. Blessed with the ability to see beauty. Cursed with forever wondering. Know you are loved, blessed, and not alone. ♥ Love yourself always. Bless this world.
If you feel unloved, I ♥ U! Bring with your energy ♥!

1st of April 2015: For a moment, I found peace in a lifetime where peace is almost nonexistent. An artist found inspiration. A muse when I had lost it. Love the earth, yourself, this energy! ♥
Embrace the beauty this world gives you. Man is lost without being able to appreciate it. I come here to clear my head. When I need peace, I find it here. Love lots, A stranger, a sister the Artist.

April 5th 2015. You start the labyrinth looking at the overall picture. Trying to determine where goes where, if there's and easier way, but then you place one foot in front of the other and begin to walk. As I walked everything faded away, the overall picture of the maze, the beautiful woman who had brought me to this spot, the world. I started noticing the small things along the way: pieces of pottery, beads, glass, tine. The small broken bits of brick, broken sticks in the path. Funny, this is like life. The small things, the journey. It is not what is at the end of life's labyrinth that matters; it is the small things, the memories, the journey itself that is the prize. It is the moment I shared with this beautiful woman, watching her hair brush her face in the breeze, the sun glisten on her skin. It was the wind through the trees, the beautiful memory I just made. Life will always be about the little things, and the people we share our adventures with. - Stacy K.
April 5th, 2015. On this beautiful Easter day, I decided to walk the labyrinth for my second time. This time with better company who would take it more seriously. That is the key. Relax... listen to the wind, the birds, the trees swaying, the wind chimes. Let them be your music. ~Enjoy your time...~ It's truly about the small things in life. Let the wind play with your hair as a lover should. Release your inner hippie. Let your worries blow away, just for a moment. Live your life... ♥ B.

4/21 Today while walking to the labyrinth I witnessed a woman rock climbing up a cliff and struggling to get to the top, questioning herself. Her guides just kept telling her she could do it, and as I got to the center of the labyrinth, I watched her hoist herself to the top. She clearly had not done this before. She just said "Wow, knowing how to climb and actually doing it are very different things." I was so fortunate to see her triumph and apply it in areas I'm still learning. - Shannon A.

April 30th 2015. I moved out here from NY about 2 months ago. I've walked along this trail many times before and just stumbled on the labyrinth today. I have been seeking inner peace and forgiveness for the wrong I've done in my past and I have found it. Life is beautiful in all of its aspects. Humans together can create such incredible energy when shared with an open heart and mind. Thank you for bringing such a peaceful spot for everyone to enjoy. May all beings be happy and free. ॐ Namaste.
April 30, 2015. It was so so so spiritual. Like f* j* in the a*. Love, Black Velvet

(Note left on center rock): Under the light of the moon, I can't see what I'm writing, but to all humans reading this, this is a reminder that you are cosmic energy expressing itself in a physical body. Sit down somewhere and breathe because it's so beautiful to be alive, every cell in your body bathed in golden light. What you imagine is real, smile on this day because you are expanding human consciousness just by being aware of your breathing. Fill yourself with light because it feels good. I love you. Many blessings on your journey.

5-4-2015 ♥ CNL Life is the labyrinth and the labyrinth is a metaphor for so many concepts. When you begin you can see the goal (the center) so clearly and feel very close to it, as if you are right next it it, but you are really far away. Then when you are traveling towards the center there are times when you feel lost and can't seem to see how close you really are. Ironic. The outermost circles are the farthest away from the goal but then you are actually closer to it than you'll ever be (until you get there). Then after 155.5 Roman paces (for me) the center/goal has been reached. Now what? Circle around in the ceremonial, reverent manner. Kneel, reflect, realize I am here and the possibilities in front of me are endless. Now going back: a different type of journey, not just the reverse of getting there. See it all from a different view. Remember the things I know I can do and how I want to do them. Can't wait to write it all down. Focus on the steps I take and being mindful of the young oak tree growing between the rocks. Back out... Strange, it took more paces coming out than going in.
5-5-2015 I've stopped on my way back to write this. It's the second half of my journey. Feels a bit like my life. I've already hit the mid point at age 50, and now I'm 64 walking out my days to their conclusion. I'm told that is another beginning, where perhaps I start a second big journey. I must say I'm very thankful to have a guide and guides, to have a companion and companions on the way... Also I'm very glad this isn't a maze designed to confuse, but rather this has a destination, even a helpful purpose, even when it seems the opposite. Thanks!
5/9/2015... Day #14. Still trapped in the labyrinth. Danny passed out from dehydration. We had to eat him, it was the only choice. Food supplies are dangerously low, who knows who will die next. The voices have gotten louder. They whisper for me to abandon those who are left and come back and drag them away in the dark. The labyrinth calls to one. It's twisting walls say to stop looking for the way out and just make this place into my new home.
May 9, 2015 Walking thru the maze, found something amazing along the way. Snow fall became dark and mystery - a land of fairies we came across and led us this way and we found...???? Sophia, Chad, and Kayla

May 21st, 3:03 PM. Hi I have been sitting on this bench for a bit listening to the windchime, cares, and people passing by. The sun just sent behind the clouds making the breeze really chilly. When I first arrive here today, some creepy guy walked straight to the center whilst talking to himself, then turned around and went away... I've been trying to think while sitting here but so many thoughts cloud my head I don't know where to start. I'll continue walking. J Bye, Sophie

The whisky is warm, the conversations are good (feminism, video games, toe shoes?). We're going a bit further down the trail. But it was good to gather the spirit of the labyrinth, basking in the light of the faint rainbow around the moon, a cloudy crown for a sleeping goddess. Good night, world. ♥ SJW (& BS & GW, I guess)

Aug 3. One of my favorite authors once compared life to a labyrinth. And we search for a path to follow as a means to seek a great perhaps. Some of us have grand moments spent well. Others have small gestures that make life bearable. But whether we seek a great perhaps or seek only to find a quick way out, we all must remember that people will come & go. We will walk alone - a lot. But all we can do is make the best of every m7oment and be at peace with who we are and how we act. - Dice.

Even though it has been only a year, I feel like we have known each other for a lifetime. We were simply waiting for the right moment to meet. That would be the center of the labyrinth for me. I was wanting/waiting to find you and now that I have you I'll never let you go. I feel like my whole world has changed with you here. Every day is a new and exciting adventure.

9-12-15 Today we took a stroll on this beautiful day and walked the path. We collected flowers and pretty rocks along the way to offer at the center. When we were at the center the grasshoppers began to buzz. Interestingly, they quieted after we left. They don't like us. Oh well. We'll return on another day. J

September 14, 2015. I am intensely burning bright. I am divine energy and purpose, and so are you. Yet in this tiny litter facet I've created and decided to express myself as, I feel so alone, despite the oneness of the universe. I'm not complaining or seeking pity. I just wonder why I express such sadness, pure sadness over such a perspective. I know when I was reborn into this world, I decided to live life with my chosen challenges of emotional, physical, and spiritual nature. To some degere all of our challenges are very much alike. That is unifying, isn't it? Haha. Anyhow I say ignore the naysayers, even if that naysayer is you! Be who you were born to be. If you don't like who you are currently, change yourself for your personal betterment. I can do it. You can do it. Let's all be as epic and beautiful as we can be. J And thank you, thank you, thank you.♥♥♥ Kayra.
Peace in my mind and freedom in my soul. 9-16-2015
What would Bob Dobbs do? Get slack.
♥ 9-18-15 I don't know if I'm going crazy or if the world is actually changing. I feel different from everyone I meet. I feel strange attractions to others. I feel as though I have awakened. I am in the process of awakening. There has to be more to life than what society is feeding to us. I'm tired to working and going to school every day just to be too exhausted to follow my true path. I want to be able to trust people. I wish the world wasn't so cruel. I know I can make a difference. I started to wake up when I met my twin flame. He is married to another. So it's unlikely that we'll ever be together. But he is the reason I started to see the world differently. There's supposed to be a mass ascension on Sep 28. Who else out there feels similar to me? So far, I feel alone in this. --Striving for ☮ ☯

(Night of the blood moon total eclipse)
9/27/15 Super-blood-moon eclipse hike that's off to the moon on acid what an amazing experience except I just had to smash a spider with my phone. That was awful. The first time I saw an eclipse I was really young, like six. My parents explained that a shadow was coming to cover the moon. While they told me this, I watched the blinking lights of a plane flying towards the moon and I assumed that the plane cast the shadow. Something like a large guided blanket coming to obscure the moon. SJW.
It is truly daunting to experience the vastness of a shadow cast on the closest foreign body to our planet. A shadow in the night to snuff out our light. A peek at the beyond.

October 24, 2015. Tequila sunrise/NAU homecoming day. On my run today, I saw drunken college boys (definitely not men, but dickless boys) at the labyrinth. They broke the metal box that holds the visitor comment book, smashed the sign, and took away the comment book. How pathetic. A loser is someone who tries to destroy something that other people find beautiful. A loser thinks that being destructive makes him powerful, but it makes him weak and pathetic. A winner is someone who tries to make the world a better place. A winner always succeeds because by the very act of trying, the winner does make the world a better place.

You are made of power. You are made of light. You were made to make manifest those feelings and mysterious brilliances that you glimpse in yourself when you are truly at peace. To all those spectators who watch you of for all those who don't... Do it for you, because you are worth it. Inspire, Love, Help, Lift, and Encourage. Love, Me

Circumstances change, material possession lose their luster, and all you are left with is who you are and the relationships you have built. What seems like a disaster today might be forgotten before you know it. Live like it matters.
Nov. 1, 2015. Grateful for the peace and serenity of this moment. 11:45 AM
I came and this is the only mark I leave other than footsteps, both soon to disappear. With gratitude. November 1, 2015.
Nov. 5, 2015, I came across this while I was walking. Today was a hard day. I don't really know where I am walking or why but I feel lost. Falling, faster & faster towards the cement. I feel as though I am alone all the time. Like I can't breath. I feel as though I am surrounded by people who don't care about me. I try to do stuff for people. If they need me I want to be there. Though I feel like if I were to ever need them, or to tell them how deeply depressed I am, they wouldn't be there. I know this is irrelevant to anyone, but since no one will ever know that it's me writing this I feel like I can be honest. I cut myself today. It's been a while since I last did that. I don't know why I do it. Maybe because it make the pain dissipate for a minute, or maybe because I'm so good at hiding the pain that it's a remembrance that it's still there even though no one knows about it. I already covered it though, because pain scares people. People don't want to be around someone who hates themselves. So to everyone around me I'm happy. Don't worry friends, insults don't hurt me. You can call me a slut of make fun of how I look or dress. I just laugh it off. They all think it doesn't bother me. They don't know how much pain their words cause. I just stay quiet. I don't know where I am going to walk right now but half of me hopes I get lost.
Nov 13. (on same page as Nov 5 note) You are not alone. I feel very similar. I suffer from an anxiety disorder and it plagues me every day. But know sometimes we manufacture our own problems, problems that aren't really there. In reality we are not alone and there are people who care about you. It just takes time to open up to your surroundings. It's hard I know but everything will be all right.
9:18 PM Nov 5. I'm alone and I'm stoned and I don't know what to do. My mind is going crazy. Constantly thinking of you. J
9:20 PM, Nov 5, 2015. I came here earlier today when I was walking around alone. Now I brought my friend J to see it tonight. I was pretty depressed because a lot has been going wrong recently. I just have been having a bad few weeks. I really hope things will get better. I wish you all the happiness I can. ♥ me

11.11.15. I loved you with every ounce of my soul, with every breath, heart beat, and step I took. You consumed me in every way... But... you left me. Took it all with you. Every memory, laugh, and smile. I plunged. But today, I grew, I learned to love myself, love each moment of each day. I LOVE ME. This is for every girl, boy, man, woman who has ever doubted their self-worth. You do not need anyone in your life who does not need you. Today I have been set FREE. ♥ K.S.

3/23 I have passed this place nearly every day on my walk to and from work since moving here in August, and have never once stopped. Tonight on my way home I felt the spirit move me to stop, and I did. I have walked numerous labyrinths similar to this one in my life, mostly in churches, and it feels comforting, simple, peaceful, like I am at home. There is god in this place. It is so simply clear. I have abandoned my meditation practice, but this walk reminded me so simply and clearly of the importance of presence in the moment, compassion, patience, and peace. Thank you a thousand times over to whoever created and maintains this place. It is a gift.
3-24-16 Spectacular! ♥ Thank you - Donna V.
This is what I needed - a straight path. Lately I've felt to indecisive. This gives me the time to reflect and enjoy the spring air. Thank you Flagstaff for these four years. - Victoria, March 24, 2016
The best decision you can make is to be in a good mood. Look at the trees around you. Life is amazing.
March 26th 2016. I've been here to this special place before and I've had great days but if feels really good to sit on a rock sometimes and reflect on all of those good things. And not take it all for granted. Focusing my energy on the good things in life only will create more. Today I'm grateful for the two people sitting beside me. Life if pretty good. And so is yours if you decide it is. I love you. ♥ Elyse PS I became a junior park ranger today!

The heart does skirt the desert and dives in the shaded pool.
A panic racks the sickened mind. The mind no longer minds. the body's fragile egg enters torrents of terror like waves of fury Bent down the soul that resides within each thought, births new ideas all which seem to seek a gray place of understanding. each mistake manifests itself as terror, a fear designed to steal the soul. life comes to a head like a volcano the pressure has built. Once the mountain blows it will never be the same. Pieces can be found littered form miles. what's left of the passion and pain. If life was meant to be perfect it would be so. The evidence on an existence born of chaos ingrained in every person. The desire the magnetic pull towards destruction chance and impulse. So main beauty born from the depths of change. The most beautiful flowers that smell so exotic, the effect is immediate intoxication, a sensation without rival. a feeling of freedom known only to the winged beast. A passion so pure to partake is to be nourished, through love a freedom is found without depth. Pure freedom flows like a river for those who would take the plunge. A word to the wise... hate looms like a shadow. Always trying to pervert the beautiful. A cunning spider weaves webs for the unprepared. She sits in wait as beautiful as any goddess. As lethal as a bullet through the heart. to see her is to fee lust, a perverse desire so consuming many can't look away, after that first glance. an unforgiving goddess showing loyalty to none, those that worship knew power, fame, and fortune that only a god or goddess can supply. Her price is high.
Like spring. /a place demands your attention /a full step in color /walk slowly /to the refrains
It's not unusual to be loved by anyone. ♥ It's not unusual to be hugged by NE1.
Walk through the labyrinth with a partner. /see your pathways wind /parallel and near /suddenly here /Suddenly far /All the while weaving /threads into braids /loose ends into knots /what a pattern you'll trace /from the same distance apart.
16 April Thank you for this today. Much needed peace. Nothing inspiring to say but I'm just letting you know I'm here, universe. Cheers! - C____

IF, by Rudyard Kipling. If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue /or walk with kings nor lose the common touch /If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you /If all men count with you, but none too much. /If you can fill the unforgiving minute /with 60 seconds worth of distance run, /yours is the Earth and everything it in. /And -which is more - you'll be a man, my son! -- Calum & that girl from the last page.

4-22-16 I came up to visit my girlfriend and we found this place, decided to give it a try. Didn't really feel the place was all that special till reading these notes with her and seeing her smile. I'll definitely be back with her again.
4-21-2016 Full moon. We discovered this through some fellow travelers, shortly after we arrived in Flagstaff after getting a ride from Winslow. Everyone we encountered was a treat and a blessing. Our new friends brought us here and we shared a meditation and herb. It was very grounding and connecting, so very refreshing after a long 10 days since leaving home, 1500 miles with no direction. This helped remind me to be patient, and mindful with my actions, to be open to explore and share love and union, having the wisdom to filter the energy in a positive way. I feel so blessed to be here in the state I have grown. This journey may have pulled me into the current of a powerful river, though I have my raft and I know how to swim and am ready for the ride. I call for love, community, creation, and healing, for myself and the greater whole. May we all find the connection to each other and our home, spreading light in the darkness... -Chelsea Sherwood, Denton TX

Please read - I hope I can help. J Stay away from the temptations of evil. Money is the root of most. Do not fall into the system, Do not pick up the patterns of bad peers, do not let others control your life. Nobody but you can become you and what you want yourself to be. Follow dreams not instructions. Nothing should restrain you from living the life that you want to live, but most importantly, love life. Love yourself, what you do, where you are because you were meant to do so. Love others, it's the only proper way to receive love back. Pay attention to karma.

Hello, This is my first time at the labyrinth and I am trying to write something motivating and inspirational. Circumstances change, material possessions lose their luster, and all you are left with is who you are and the relationships you have built. What seems like a disaster today might be forgotten before you know it. Live like it matters.
Dear You, In this crazy thing we call life, I want you to know that you are enough. You are incredible! You are made of so much more than you think you are. You are made of power. You are made of light. You were made to make manifest those feelings and mysterious brilliances that you glimpse in yourself when you are truly at peace. To all those spectators who watch you or for all those who don't... Do it for you, because you are worth it. Inspire, Love, Help, Lift, and Encourage. ♥ Love, Me

What is this?
If you learn anything from my words, know to never give up. I know it sounds cliche' but somehow most of us forget. Live is a blessing. Whether or not you believe in afterlife or religion, understand that this thing we call life is a gift and on earth it does not last. So find your purpose and never stop believing in what you want achieve, Remember that failure is a man-made concept. One cannot fail if they never give up. By seeing "failure" as a temporary setback we recognize that our journey is not yet complete. You have complete control of your destiny. Take Charge!

I have faith in the good things, even when they are hard to accept. Why wouldn't I deserve anything but love and happiness?
Have you ever felt so much peace? Well I started out that way the first few steps into the labyrinth. I tied my dog to a stone to make my journey to the center seem more spiritual and find my center in silence. But my dog chewed through the leash and I had to run after her. Well now my dog is running around nearby. I will come back and try this again. D.
Chimes jingle. it is sunny... rocks and dirt... wind is blowing... god is watching. It is like a forest but we can see houses from here too. By accident people come and see this, and read the sign, and walk the maze and write in this book. people come here and play and have fun. J Thank y♥u, ♥

Luke and Angela and Peter and Opal. Beautiful sunset walk with smoke from controlled burns turning the sky peach and purple. June 5, 2016
This is something like a promise. I write to solidify my ideas by allowing them to exist. I'm here as a promise to myself that I will be. I will consciously create my reality rather than let it be defined by other agendas. I have chosen to be BE. To Manifest Light into this world. Today a raven flew so close I could feel my hair move -- the universe was sending me a message to BE. Watching the orange sky and the peaks has me thinking about past mistakes. Past decisions that ended wrong, and some started out wrong. I'm a cheater, a liar, a slave to my desires. She is the only one who completes me but I long for other lovers. I'm sitting with a cigarette on my lips but I have yet to light the flame.I choose to live my life based on what I want and need. I'll be a better person.
If you need some beauty in your life. "I am vertical" by Sylvia Plath: I am vertical /but I would rather be horizontal. /I am not a tree with my root in the soil /sucking up minerals and motherly love /so that each March I may gleam into leaf, /Nor am I the beauty of a garden bed /attracting my share of Ahs and spectacularly painted, /Unknowing I must soon unpetal. /Compared with me, a tree is immortal /and a flower-head not tall, but more startling, /and I want the one's longevity and the other's daring. //Tonight, in the infinitesimal light of the stars, /the trees and the flowers have been strewing their cool odors. /I walk among them, but none of them are noticing. /Sometimes I think that when I am sleeping /I must most perfectly resemble them -- /thoughts gone dim. /It is more natural to me, lying down. /Then the sky and I are in open conversation, /and I shall be useful when I lie down finally: /Then the trees may touch me for once, and the flowers have time for me.

June 30, 2016. There once was a bird who got too cold and tried to keep flying south. His wings few heavy and he landed in a pasture. The bird closed his eyes, his flock flew on without him. He passed out. He awoke to find a cow was pooping on him. The poop was warm, but now he was trapped. He chirped loudly while he was trapped for hours. A passing fox heard his chirps, dug him out of the poop, and ate him. The moral of the story: Not everyone who poops on you is your enemy and not everyone who gets you out of poop is your friend. Most importantly, when you are in deep poop, keep your mouth shut and stay calm. - Damian

So me and my friends were at a park and we spontaneously did acid, we ended behind another park and Sage was mumbling all this mad scientist mumbo jumbo but it was spontaneous and that was part of it. We said in the beginning of the night we weren't going to the labyrinth and yet here we area. Completely spontaneous.
7-14-2016 Today I discovered this book, no idea it existed. I feel an immediate peace and happiness just sitting here appreciating this beautiful mountain town that I am so lucky to call home. Enjoy the little things in life. "Don't you wish there was a way to know you were in the good ole days before you actually left them?" - the office ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Always treat strangers kindly. you never know when you are in the presence of an angel or alien.
July 15, 2016 I just happened upon this labyrinth... beautiful view. Same from Rio. Viva la resistance! Catch 'em all! Mechanical pen died on me.. Much love..

7-16-16 I've been alone and pretty bored in Flagstaff and happened on this maze after walking around. Found this book and read the amazing stuff people have written and listened to the windchimes and didn't even feel bored, just peaceful. It's been a long year and not super great, but sitting here made me realize - you don't need a lot of friends to appreciate life. Don't let the bad days get you down. Now I feel cheesy, but I kinda needed to hear this myself. Love you all ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (shout out to the other 17-year-old in this book!)

July 20, 2016 Love is around even when you don't think it is. J It's a funny thing, love is, it comes and goes and stays for a while when it comes. Don't be discouraged when it leaves, it come back around.

Change is inevitable.
Only two laws govern the universe. Love and Peace.
"I feel liquid but square."
I am my universe.
We would go on a hike but we literally did that.
What would happen if people took LSD instead of caffeine in the morning? Sage's case study. (5 page stream of words too illegible to transcribe.)
You are the reason and that's good because I'm always looking for a reason and the reason is you.
As I sit here in the labyrinth watching the sunset and enjoying the beautiful sounds of nature I think of all the beautiful people who have written in this book. I love you all. Thank you for your poems, drawings, and thoughts. You are beautiful and I love you.

It's okay not to be okay. I have to remind myself of that a lot. I fake being okay and I'm not sure anymore if I do it for other people or myself... I wish for once that I could say I'm okay and have it not be a lie. When do things get better?
(added on the same page in early September 2016) I know how you feel wanting to be okay... Try stepping out once in a while to feel the sun on your skin and enjoy the breeze and take a deep breath and say to yourself... you are alive. You are beautiful in every way possible inside and out. You are loved especially when you don't feel like it, I promise you. On one knows if things will get better but you will have days when you feel on top of the world, so hold on to those okay? I love you and so will everyone else.
Mellow with age - Don't rush it!
7-24-2016 This is a beautiful place. I've felt so disconnected lately, but I came here, found this book and sat down, and that at once a dozen very noisy grasshoppers started flying around. It's still again. I feel better now. We are all connected.
Life is never as you expect it. Blood family can turn on you. Friends aren't who they say they are and probably only wanted you for one thing. Your family is whoever you want it to be. My family is my boyfriend and 2 sons. I love them and can't live without them. Love as much as you can and as often as you can. Love!!! PS. I want my boyfriend to propose but he won't propose if I ask! This is me asking for the Universe! ♥ BHD 7-28-2016

My daughter Petra and me are here now. We are together now as I once was with my father. Soon it will be her turn to walk with her children.
You've reached the end. Here's an aquarium. Add some animals.
Some kids are bumping trap music in the neighborhood nearby.
Born here 63 years ago, 2 streets over. My Dad worked at the sawmill. I heard the steam train every day. The mill horn sounded at 4:00 every day too. Dad would be home in 15 minutes, smelling like axle grease and pine. My cousins and I would trap small animals in this canyon. Noise, traffic, too many people. Yea, good ole days gone. Luv u anyway!

Day 1: I somehow found myself wandering this labyrinth, got to the center and can't find a way to leave... Please help!
Day 2: I have decided to camp out at the center for the night. Maybe even sleep and wait for someone to venture upon me.
Day 3: Haven't made it out. No sign of people at all. I've decided drinking my own piss is my only survival. If you can read this... look for me.
Day 4: Stuck here, no one that's walked the labyrinth seems to sense my presence. I now know I'm forever trapped. I notice nobody uses both sides of these pages... Please do...
Day 5: Never thought it'd come to this... eating my own poop to keep my stomach from eating itself.
Day 6: I asked you to use both sides of the pages. Is that so hard? If this continues, instead of allowing you to enjoy your peace with the universe, I might keep the stress flowing till it eats you alive!
Day.. it doesn't matter: I've now accepted this as my fate, I watch over the labyrinth so that none may abuse it. - Good Day - PS I'll look over you all on your visits.
You are strong, purposeful, and loved by many ♥ Let love manifest your mind and you will be the most powerful wealthy being.
Life is a journey /Life is continual /Life is renewal /Life is a Circle /Life is giving and receiving /Life is about the open air /Beyond that and back on we are all opportunity.

8-22-2016 It's the start of my last year here at NAU and I am trying to come to terms with having to say goodbye. I'm saying goodbye to a lot of different people, memories, and locations. It's hard to accept. I have had many ups and down with NAU and I am a different person than when I started. I am not sure what I should take away from this experience. I will miss Flagstaff. I met my first love here and I'm graduating without him as we have gone separate ways. It's a whirlwind. I am glad I came to this place - it always makes me feel at peace. I hope I still feel that way when it comes time to leave. - M
8-24-16 Back to Flagstaff. /The fresh yet brisk aire as your elevation increase. /The clouds increase, the warmth grows as you get closer /The endless trees and infinite nature to appreciate /The random storms from nowhere precipitate /The great future to anticipate /The mountains magically relieve stress /The welcoming beauty and the friendly strangers /The grand majesty of Humphreys holding tremendous dangers /The green trees compliment the blue sky /The smile on my face when I don't need to try. /The fog resting waiting in the valleys /The dark storm clouds lingering rumbling waiting /The rain falling to the soul of the soil, replenishing /Recreating through precipitation ("waiting, waiting on the world to change") /The beautiful botanist accompanying me here today. /The peace and blessing the bees brought before they blew away /On a good day I usually have more to say /But today's a GREAT day so this labyrinth my attention must pay. Namaste. -- MC IN

It's a Sunday, a very nice day. I don't want to be here, but I am. To be honest I don't want of need to be anywhere. No place to call home. I don't want to live anymore. I feel alone. I'm only 19 but feel incredibly old. I've been engaged, homeless, and heartbroken. I thought Flagstaff would be a new start but my demons followed me and I tired and don't want to continue. Will you help me? There are things I want to do. A road trip to New York, eating spaghetti, someone to say "I love you" with all their heart, waking up for sunrise on a beach with a cup of coffee and cigarette. Remember me when you walk the labyrinth.
(response to previous) I want to meet you. No one is alone! We are all here! Look for help.

Scents of fall are on the breeze.
I sat watching a flower as it was withering. I was embarrassed by its honesty and I see the same fate in my own body.
Hi. Hey nice to meet you.
10-9-2016 I miss you. After all this time, the only 3 words that come to me. You killed my heart not by leaving but the person you became. I feel nobody there, nobody to connect with. You my my soulmate, best friend... you were my person. I sat with you thru everything.. every hospital visit I was there wishing you would get better, praying, hoping, loving, but nothing worked. I am broken now. My I miss you, I pray for you, I still love. -- Until next time - forever heartbroken. have no idea what I am looking for so somewhere something is waiting for me. I feel the pull. I hope I find it soon.
Some days I feel tired, lost, alone, helpless, confused, and unable to get out of such thoughts. I fell death and wish it would come to me. Suicidal symphonies play all around me. Today I breathe. Today I love. Today I am trying. Today I am strong. Life is mysteriously blessings in disguise.
Time don't wait for nobody.

10-28-16. It is easy to fun about the labyrinth just to make it out the other side. If one is skillful and unafraid, one can embrace its mysteries and enjoy paths taken previously. There is no goal to achieve in it, if one listens and slows down enough to enjoy it, the labyrinth will unfold its many paths. Love, Robert
It's always darkest before the dawn. The substance that we are longing for has always left us needing more. Take a moment to realize what you have, and leave no stone unturned in your pursuit of the beautiful in yourself. You are the only thing keeping yourself from having everything that you desire. Take every mment to enjoy this life you've been given. This is all temporary. Happy trails, AJC
10-31-16 Happy Halloween to all the lovely souls! ♥ Feel the warmth and cold of the day on your skin. It's a beautiful one, right? I mean how could it get simpler? Sitting here on a rock with the sun shining on the trees that dance in front of me. All I can hear is the wind-chime singing with the wind. Living with now... no longer planning to live, but just doing it! We all share this planet. We all have to learn to live in harmony and peace with each other and nature. It's possible -- we are the future. Share your knowledge on how to love and live through truth. It's a way to achieve immortality in this world. -- Madison S__
The Golden Hour. I always appreciate this spot. The sun is arcing low in the south. Winter sun. I feel the dry air. I smell fires burning in the windy morning after a long cold night. I can taste the crispness on the breeze. Dry grasses rustle, dry leaves blow, slow trains haul, and Flagstaff live on into the receding timeline...

You look down to read this, now look up... what do you truly see? - For me, it is spiritual energy.

15 Nov 2016 Nature is cyclical. History is not a straight line by a an irregular spiral circling back on itself. We perceive everything as a first time because we want it to be ours alone but there is nothing that has not happened before and will not happen again. It's a lesson laid out before ue ready to be learned, but so few of us are ready to see... But not me... How about you? -JDC
The trees dance, the grasses say, the golden leave flutter. It is another beautiful day in Flag. The colors are fading out with the heat. I can see the eternal in a whisper, a blade of dry grass as the sun shines through. All is one, one ball, one love, one heart, one soul. ☮

It's not so impossible.
Nov 28, 2016 Well it snowed and this pen is dying along with the bushes and animals around me so I'll make this quick. Sometimes things spiral out of control in life, like yesterday. Both of my roommates and myself had troubles and by "coincidence" dumb luck or miracle saved our lives. After looking death in the face, unimportant things drift away and you know what is important. Don't let fleeting things occupy your thought and time. Live what you're passionate about, all the way, roll with the changes, and embrace the struggle because it will make you stronger. Death is one of the most important parts of life. Eventually people and habits and things die, and yet something new continues. And its more complex and it's even better than before. This happens in nature, in yourself, in your relationships, and just about anywhere you think of. So have hope because it gets better. Gotta go, cold as hell out here. - Happy Trails

The winter sun is faint and low /and the grasses grow pale with cold. /The clouds are still /the air is cool /yet again the church bells toll. /The shadows are long and it's only noon. /I see the eternal in the glowing bare branches of scrub.
Red. Dec 3, 2016
You will eat /by and bye /in the glorious land above the sky /Work and pray /live on hay /You'll get pie in the sky when you die!
I can see the mountain rolling deep /and the grasses flutter as the plains weep. /I've spent many a moon here in Flag / but I may be on my last. /The open roads of the country are calling /The time has come to go far. "But having gone far, it will return." ∞
The old tilted structures of Flag are visible from the street and yet glossed over by the passerby. A museum is not needed. the crumbling houses are inhabited. One can walk and observe a bygone era. What is it about this town? The foundations of the city are still visible. No need for pictures when we can see these buildings and alleys. Step out on a cool clear night. Smell woodsmoke in the air. Look: a classic house with smoke billowing from a metal chimney into the starry night. A crescent moon thru the trees. The night is still the stars are endless. The smoke smoke greets the stars and the stoner drags his joint and the band plays and the trains roll and wayfarers wander and the cats fight and the trees sway as the stars twinkle and the city is alive.
11:01 PM December 9 2016 I used to come here a lot last year and tonight is my virst visit this year. Always a good spot to stop. Scary how all the memories come flooding back when you see a spot for the first time in a while. I'm 99% sure my ass cheeks are frozen and if I had a penis it'd be cold and shriveled and begging for mercy, I'm not even on drugs this time. College if fun. - Jewl

Hello brothers and sisters! Welcome -Alien.
(paper left on center rock Dec 11) You exist distinctly from other people. You do not have to think their thoughts or feel their pain. Your experience of life can be uniquely your own, your needs can be different than their needs. Yet you can be empathetic to their needs and experiences. You can put yourself in their shoes for the moment, but you don't have to stay there. "Good boundaries are knowing where you stop and the other person begins."
You will never find happiness unless you reach out and grab it.

What is dead may never die.
How is it possible that a being with such sensitive jewels as the eyes, such enchanted musical receivers as the ears, and such fabulous arabesque as the nerves of the brain can experience itself as anything less than a god? Grateful to every grain of the Universe contributing to the very moment here.
We can surround ourselves with people all our lives but at the end of the day the only person you have is yourself. Your mind is yours and that is a beautiful thing.

Jan 11, 2017 “This is what you shall do; Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body.” - Walt Whitman.

For Toya ♥ - Marcella, March 8 2017
Sweet pine, you lent your branch while the weeping willow wept in the cool spring air. You drank up my sorrow like a river that washes all the silt downstream. But your wilted branches became dry and troubled like me, and although you don't know why the willow weeps you felt it in your roots trunk and branches, and when your pollen blooms, you will understand.
Star daze, star dust, lotus flowers burst thru musk. Wherever the wind melts thru the shadows white lies to reveal the echoing heat of sunrise, it is really my heart revealing her innocent skin and diving in.
March 9, 2017 I'm back with the boys up in Flag, feels great to be here. Any ways shoots! - Brando
I ♥ you SOOOO much. Love & light. Boots & Cats.
No one (2017) know what they're doing. It's okay! You're good, bru. - DEM
March 11, 2017 Referring to the weeping willow, I see none... but should cry & C & I, I am convinced she's bowing to her creator... Likewise, though not bowing, rather standing at attention as mighty soldiers diligently seeking His return are mighty oaks and pine. --Pilgrim Douglas.

If you only got one eye, then oh my! If you got one eye on the destination, you only got one eye on the road. Peace.
I have found so many places similar to this on all my travels and all of them have the same familiar grand feeling that takes you for a moment out this world to one that helps you reflect on life. Enjoy. It took me too long to figure out how but its more simple than anything -- just let go.
How long is this? I had to stop about 2 hours in due to shortness of breath. I got up to finish and found myself lost. Still unable to escape... Entered about 26 days ago, I think. I can't keep track anymore, is it still 2001? I have a pair of brand new bell-bottoms I still wear. Hopefully someone reading this can help. I'll write my eulogy soon if I can... ♥ pHeve

Life is so incredibly beautiful. Each moment is perfectly filled with love and bliss if you actively choose to show up for the universe. Dismiss everything that insults your own soul. Life is too fragile and short to spent it doing things that do not fulfill you.

Mar 29. Ruby, Ivan, & Savannah ♥ Taking some awesome pictures. Really love this new little gem in Flagstaff ♥
It's been a long time since I last saw you and walked this path it's a trip through the past. I see vision of who I was and what I once thought. This maze has triggered many reflections. People can be so close yet unreachable. Everyone is see is following the path as best they can. When you pass by, pass by with a smile. Love is the purpose of life, give love and you are a being of light, let some of that light shine on yourself. As I walk the maze I find what I need. She speaks to me through the wind and sun and raindrops and says "If your path has spun your around and left you weary, take a second to reflect. It could be as easy as walking right on. If your path takes you nowhere, step off the trail. Open your eyes, let your spirit drive your feet." Good luck, friends. Brandon S__ 2017 almost April.

Dying to Live #1. I think I'm only happy when I'm sad... I love the idea of love.. but push it away when I have it. I'm in love with the world.. but I'm always harsh to me. I'm a hopeless romantic, and perhaps that's why I get high... I never wanted to hurt anyone else, only myself (slightly). You (whoever read this): I love you. unconditionally. this system failed us, don't fail yourself. - Trouble" T.K. on a lonely afternoon.
Dying to Live #2. I live on O'Leary and come her often to play my guitar for the birds and trees and those who stop to hear. I've been shooting up to try to fix my broken heart... it doesn't help. In trying to live again, I'm killing myself a little each time. You can see me downtown almost any day: I'm the punkrocker with sad eyes who smiles at strangers who often won't make eye contact, but that's OK I smile anyway. "I shoulder my loneliness like a gun, I refuse to aim." (Leonard Cohen). Some drink is yelling at me, I feel bad for him, like me lonely and unable to meet life.... Think what you will... I love all of you... Stop being a-holes to each other, this ride is so short. Laugh loud and often. Love as hard as you can. It's such a beautiful day and the fact it's finite makes it beautiful, like you. --Tyler Kimbell. April 13 2017.
April 14. Stop and take a moment to listen to the trees. You might find you don't need any other music. - PJ

Why picture a dream in the mind's eye that turns out to be a waking nightmare? Let go of this world of expectation.

I'm dying to live #5. Sunday afternoon, around 6 PM. Today was beautiful. The light, the colors, the feel of the wind in my hair as we played kickball in the spring sunshine. I am in love with the world! I come here to play the blues... I am so happy. I feel loose and it moves me to play music. I sound like a fool, but I write truth. I strike like the memory of a missed lover in the night. Raw, unfiltered. Thank you for showing me i am able to feel. You can forget this little note, but I will never forget writing it. I always flirt with death. It will kill me, but I don't care about it. The only one's another girl and/or planet. 1971. I love all of you with all my heart. Tyler K. 4-22-2017

June 8 2017. Nice. Keep it up. Loved it.
June 7 2017. I came here to remember where I started before moving on. Now in my last summer here, I live closer than ever to this place. Not for long though. These last 4 year have been the best of my life. Love, friendship, memories, family have all been shared here. It has been a wonder to watch this labyrinth evolve. I love coming here for some peace from this crazy world. Goodbye for now, Flag. xoxo. Natasha F.H.

Breathe deep and you will find your way.
Not everyone will be there for you, but that's not a problem, but an opportunity to grow, become more independent, be who you are without worries of what other think. In the end, your the only one in the coffin, right?
June 22nd. Take three breaths, listen around you, take everything in. And.. it will pass.. find your Being, find your space. -Lori
You can sense positive energy flow here, do not be ignorant to it. - ED

12:08 PM Thursday June 29 2017 . As always, I'll write my honest thoughts. The older I get the more I realize everything is temporary. I've been focusing my time and energy on accepting this fully. So far I've learned to really live in the moment and soak in every experience. People teach lessons to carry throughout life. Don't be bitter when old friendships die. Cherish people even though you won't always have them. Tell someone you love right now that you appreciate them. We don't do enough of that. From the bottom of my heart, Ashley P.

July 1 2017. The ideological concept of this labyrinth is awesome, it's both spiritually and mentally invigorating and is truly remarkable.
July 1. I've had a lot on my mind lately. This is the only place I can sort out my thoughts. Endless appreciation. -E. ♥
July 2. I am rejuvenated by this wondrous place. Restored. From this place I received balance as if every stone played a part, contributing like a symphony pounding out a blessing to my body soul and spirit. Love and light from the earth to my shakra centers and pouring out of me like a supernova. Thank you father and whoever was the vision behind this sacred place. Love and Light. -JM & JT

Be careful how you trust people. Fake people will tell you things to gain your trust. Real friends are goo, you can tell them everything. You can make fun of each other and feelings don't get hurt, you treat them like family. Once someone breaks your trust, you would maybe think everyone will hurt your feelings. It happens to a lot of people. Be strong. -Joe
Don't let people on the sidelines rule your life. Do what you want when you want because your life is determined by you.

July 6 2017. It's a beautiful world we live in. I first stumbled on this place some months ago but this is the first time I got to walk through it and sit here to enjoy the peace. I had to show my boyfriend this spot and here we sit. Our lives have purpose. Our thoughts have power. Show love to everyone, we're all people. Metakaye oyasin. Listen to some Nahko Bear and enjoy the musical medicine. I thank god for this life & all the blessings. Use your purpose. Shine on, and when others damper your purpose, love & shine stronger. ♥ Vanessa L_

Dying to live #4, July 11, 2017. This year has been trying to say the least. Lost love, addition, finding a reason to go on every day. I think you you still, always. I've learned to love myself and others. But I will never love another the way I love you. Thank you for everything. Tyler W K__ PS A quote from Goethe's Faust: "Lie an aeolian lyre, shuddering note on note, tear on tear fall burning, and what I possess seems far away, and what I've lost becomes reality."
Starting over is easy, persistence is an art... Thanks Flag. - Amanda C_
Every rainstorm has a rainbow. - 100% ∞
Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain. ♥ I thank the creator of the labyrinth, for it made me realize that life is not about hustling and hurrying about. Some people forget to stop and smell the flowers. Completing this labyrinth gave me time to think about life and what I want for the future. Once again, thank you! B_ W_
July 14, 2017. This trail is amazing, so much to look at and find.

July 17 '17. Whatever you do, wherever you go - make it better... please!
July 18 2017. To the guy said you are looking for a soulmate: I came to the labyrinth today because you said we would meet here but you never showed up - or did you. I came because my mesas/my hearts, they are missing, they won't come out to play. I came because I have a special praye that needs to be prayed. I was supposed to bring my mesas with me to the labyrinth and you must ask permission and they did not give consent.
Dying to live #5. "I only get sleepless nights sitting on the edge of my half-empty bed." Each day is more beautiful than the last, and time is never promised, that gives everything an urgent beauty and imparts (for me at least) a tragic sense of life. I'm only happy when I'm "sad" and love the idea of love, but the picture always looks better than the meal. - Tyler W. K___, July 17, 2017

July 20, 2017. Being alive is a blessing every day. Putting today first, leaving the past. Free at last, free at last. One love. --D Weezy
July 20 2017. This labyrinth is amazing! I have had a hard year and I started to find myself this summer. My depression slowly leaves me every time I take this walk. I learn to appreciate more and take things slow. Not all things need to be rushed. Today Chester Bennington (lead singer of Linkin Park) passed away; his songs always help me, but today hit me like a ton of bricks, so I came here. I have never felt so low in my life. I hope friends will come back and help. For now, I am all alone. Not sure if that is bad or good. Ta-ta fro now. With love, Ashley Chenoah L___. PS Song for today: One more light - Linkin Park ♥
July 22. There's nothing at the top but a bucket and a mop and an illustrated book about birds. - Meat Puppets
July 22 2017 It's amazing how this labyrinth draws in those who have been struggling and allows them to re-evaluate and recalibrate. I have appreciated such an opportunity. --JTR
♥ I agree
I believe happiness is a byproduct that results from being otherwise engaged in things like hiking, learning, exploring, communicating, dancing, loving, anything! Putting happiness as a goal to be reached keeps you from it.
July 23 2017. Thank you for this space. A time to reflect and give thanks for what we have. Thank you for good health, thank you for people in my life that I need, and that need me. I'm grateful. --JB

Very nice labyrinth! 3-year old crying, doesn't want to leave!
July 30 2017. It was no accident that I wandered into this remarkable place this morning. I've only lived in Flagstaff 2 weeks. The last 2 days I've been seeking reflection and peace in nature as I make a difficult decision about living more authentically. As I explored the labyrinth, the thought kept coming back "you are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars. you have a right to be here, and whether or not it is clear to you, the universe is unfolding as it should." Thank you for this space. -Noah B. ♥
I just want to be happy.
Why do I feel so lost? There's no room for growth when I carry so much. I need to go back, back to love, back to excitement, back to passion, to who I once was. I need to let go of insecurities, of fear, of hate, of doubt. I love myself. I can make a change. I will make a change. ♥
july 30, 2017. A lovely drizzly and green day. Life is good.

Dying to Live #23, Tyler W. Kimbell September 7 2017. The world evades us because it becomes itself and if time frightens us it is because it works out the problems and solutions come after. If man realized that the universe like himself can also suffer, he would be reconciled. I regret hurting those who cared enough to love me but I wouldn't have this tragic sense of beauty without my experiences. I am almost 30, alone, and more myself than ever before. But ideals won't soften reality's blows. To love is the ultimate selfless act, is to see and know your time with a person is finite, which lends it great beauty. Cultivate love and compassion and gain strength from a solid foundation on which to build your higher ideas. We can't always be heros. Yet we can always strive for humanity. I can view going thru life with sharing it, as the ultimate tragic denial of will to power, with laughter and tears and life and each death we come a little closer to our potential. I miss you my love and I am thankful for the time.

I came here with the knowledge that my mother is dying... it's a lovely fall day. I brought 2 friends and we each brought a fall beer. We left them as a reminder that in the best and worst of times we will always have good folks and beautiful days to keep us laughing. Live, laugh, love... -Corndog
Nice to see all the natural beauty here in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting. By enjoying life and spreading love, we will all push through tragedy and come out stronger and more unified. ♥ Spread love. -- Cassidy
I absolutely love life. Everything is beautiful, everything.

8 Oct 2017. Aloha.
October 8th Blessed are the forgetful ♥ for they may never learn the full consequence of impulsivity. There is no such thing as too much love in your heart. Breathe safely in nature, letting your body melt into the earth. Melt into the touch of pretty creatures. You are never alone. Find your way back to the center again. Bear roots yet carry on the legacy of the person you dreamed of being when you were small and things were simple. Lay back and listen to the sounds of life. The vibrations of strings marching across miles of skin, laying claims to your bones. the end to isolation. I wish you many first kisses and restful sleep, Speak your truths. - KPD ♥
Oct 8, 2017. The day after Michele's wedding, we walked the labyrinth with Carson and Bay for their very first time. Carson slept, Bay did not. Some girls sat in the middle having a ceremony and thanked us for giving them time in the center.

When you are kind, people will be kind to you. Life can be fun, smile, go with the waves. If someone is hurt, show compassion. Truth, loving connections, and heartfelt intentions above all.

Oct 14 2017. Our journey might feel like it took forever, but life finishes in the blink of an eye. As you get closer to the middle (end) the maze shoots you back out. Stay positive and conquer life's challenges. Life's a journey. Commit and make that change. - P.E.

Oct 30 2017. Dying to Live #23, Tyler K_. I live on the edge of future but my mind strays to the past... how can I ever be present? I live live in a world where the odd is everyday and normality is laughed at, and in an attempt to live beautifully I've followed unusual paths which lead to the present. Make the best of yourself, the world is full of a-holes, be the toilet paper. Everything is worse than it seems and more bizarre than we think. That being said, don't worry about BS. Life happens.
Nov 4 2017. When I came at the end of September I was cursed by "rock Boy." A month and 2 headless rodents later, I brought him milk and cookies (spirits and Santa have the same rules, I guess) and 2 marigolds. Hopefully we're cool now. I replaced his head. Maybe Rodent #2 was a call for help.

Just found this place by chance and will come back soon with a special rock I have at home to set in the middle. I can hear the road nearby but the place feels serene.

This place is cool to do at night without lights. You don't see what's coming next on the path, just like in life. You don't see the next obstacle but you keep going and make the turn. Once you get to the middle if feels like you went on the whole journey to find happiness. Nov 10 2017.

I feel completely different. but is that what we were looking for? I feel completely different, but I recognize the face in the mirror. I feel so god-damn DIFFERENT. I tell myself "I love you." I take the time to take care of me. I feel different but I know there's more. November 25 wg

Dec 05 2017. This is my second time here and I love it. I discovered this place with NAU meditation club. I love how it appeals to all my senses. The beautiful rocks and tree, the nice smell, the chimes on the tree, touching the rocks and drinking Dutch Bros coffee. I will come here more often, alone or with friends, to study or enjoy nature. I am lucky to be in Flagstaff ♥♥ Emma from Tunisia.
I want to make my mark here but I think I'm just too damn high!
I am changing the world around me.
Whoever destroyed my artwork at the labyrinth, you hurt my feelings. I did not build my art for some drunken NAU students to knock it down. Please respect and do not destroy. (obscenities and false claim to have built the labyrinth were deleted)

December 12 2017. Oh lord how majestic is your name from the highest windblown heights to the lowest lows of my bedroom floor your reverberations find me everywhere. I scream too loud to hear the whispers of who I am. I wonder if there enough air in the world for me to breathe and still I run away. Am I too old for such things or should we all run away more? On the wind your love carries me home to the place I have been running to my whole life long.
"Be still and know that I am God." "Peace, be still." Home is all around you, for in who you are, I am found. Peace.
Life flows around me. energy light flows within me.

I love it.
Two days ago, my second abortion. I was sick a lot between them. The love of my life an I burning up. Grades dropping. Lies. My full truth cannot be told. Friends, parents, lover unable to see the demons on my shoulders, if if they could they didn't bother to shoot them. I walked a rocky path and came on this bench, this journal to write in, some thoughts freed from my prison cell. The wind is getting cold. Time to keep walking with the rest of my thoughts.
(comment on above) Hey I want you to know. I think you're incredibly strong. You deserve to be happy.
March 17 2018. The labyrinth is 5 years old today. It is wonderful that most visitors respect the labyrinth and the other visitors. Peace to all.

March 30 2018. 6:55 PM. All I hear are cars, all I see is nature. This is something you don't experience much... walking along the trail and finding this beautiful place is rewarding. I'm with my love sitting next to me and we are silent. This is bliss. Pure bliss. Anything I could ask for an more. I can't wait to be back again. - K.
March 31 2018. It looks pretty. ☺
March 30 2018. Amazing... sitting here in the middle of a city, between a university and a police station, near houses and restaurants, yet all I hear is wind in the trees and an occasional hiker on the trail below. I never thought I'd find so much peace in the middle of a city. I wonder how long this place will last. I'm glad that a part of this city has been preserved as the land it once was. How many more years before Nature collapses under man's crushing weight? "Nature speaks in symbols and sighs /Catch them while they fly /Let her tell you what's in her heart /the truth that never dies." -- Kyle
March 31 2018. There's a lizard watching me write this. There are 3 rocks between the one I'm sitting on and the one it's standing on, still as a statue, and nearly the color of the rock... I almost didn't notice it. We're both watching each other, basking in the sunlight. It's peaceful here, and I needed that. I have a lot on my mind, but coming here, meditating as I walk, and then sitting and drinking the sights and smells and sounds... this place emanates calm. After every visit, my worries seem small. Like waking from a nightmare to feel sunlight on your face and wonder why you were terrified. Always grateful to the creators of this labyrinth. And to the earth, our first mothter. May all who find there way here...
April 1 2018. 7:30 AM. Running down the trail. Open to anything. I saw a small sign. I followed it up... To this beautiful Earth art. Thank you, thank you, thank you. ♥ Stephanie
The air is still /and silent still /ravens and songbirds /the willows are gaining buds and spring in in the smell of the air. I am blessed by this moment.
April 1 2018. Nico C_, natureboy_11. There are nice spirits here that are welcoming. Don't disrespect Gaia because it can affect you later on. Walk to find your freedom. You can conquer the visible but what of what's within? To seek outside the norm is no sin. The words of the ancestors are not mine to tell. Herb is for us to connect with them. Life exists out here and also does your death... an arm's length in reach. Live with him close by. In your honor.
April 1 2018. I remember when this place was new and fresh and exciting. We traveled at night thru the woods. Every moment passed so quickly becomes nostalgia. I come here now with a different heart, a different collection of people. I come here now less to indulge and more to escape, to remember places and people outside my tiny world. I wish you all light and love, emotional intelligence, satisfying sex. I send you courage to take on your dreams. Meditate a moment and carry on. ♥ KPD
I honor the mother that birthed me whose face I've never known. /I honor the mother that raised me whose earthly time has flown. /I honor the grandmothers, wisdom-polished, paper-skinned. /I sing in praise of all the women teachers who have ever been. --The Crone of Ni Cara, Mothers' Day 2018

Oct 31 2018. I recently started getting more into paganism, and today I came to the labyrinth for a small samhain ritual -- smudging with sage to cleanse negative energy, mugwort for divination, and rosemary to remember by ancestors. I left an apple slice, hazel nuts, almonds for spirit visitors. Thank you to whoever maintains this labyrinth, it's a place I retreat to and have depended on for 2 years now, thru life's ups and downs. Walking it and meditating, and then leaving an offering in the center and staying to reflect or just chill out has helped me more than I can say. I hope this labyrinth will be here a long long time so it can help others as it helps me. Blessed be, and Happy Samhain! ☺

Nov 29, 2018, 5:20 PM. I am 9 years old and this is my second attempt at the labyrinth. I did it once when out on a run with m dogs and they were going bizirco! So sadly I could not finish.

Nov 30 2018. The labyrinth is a great place for people who want to think. Just walking in it makes me inspired to think of stories. Who built this? Why is the labyrinth shaped like this. It's beautiful and a true symbol of Flagstaff. -Edward
Dec 1 2018 5:05 PM. Today I came to the labyrinth for no purpose but to find one. It's a beautiful snowy day and I'm listening to "Homage" by Mile High Club. This is a beautiful place and I'm so incredibly thankful for it. Walking thru it is such a treasure, and nothing beats being able to sit here and clear my mind. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do. - Devon.

Dec 9 2018, 11:12. Decided to go on a walk with this awesome girl I met recently, just out of the blue. It's a beautiful sunny day with icy snow on the ground. I love how intricate and soothing the walk was. It was a therapeutic experience, good to clear the mind and just focus on the journey.
Dec 9 2018. I come here a lot and I love reading everyone else's experience. This place is truly calming and soothing, lots of angels watching and protecting.

Dec 20 2018. We came here once - not that long ago. I thought closure would come from your words "No matter what, you set me free." That was after all how I justified everything. I think you & I both know know you'll never be "free" in that sense. What you did was wrong. What I did was wrong. I just have to find my own closure - not live helping you fulfill it.

I walked toward peacefulness to carry it with me after I finished my walk. Namaste.
March 20 2019. It was a good exercise☺and fun to do with my friend. Sincerely, random 16-yr boy ☺

March 20 2019. I found this place by accident. If you are reading this I want you to open your mind. FBZ -Zonk
3-21-19 This isn't a labyrinth. It's a single line that if you follow leads you to the finish. I was expecting having to make choices but there is only one path to follow. - disappointed labyrinth enthusiast.
Wow I feel bad for this person (comment with arrow pointing to the previous comment)

Monday March 25 2019. I found this while on vacation. It is quite peaceful. If I go to college here I look forward to many walks through this, but until then I plan to make a labyrinth of my own in CO.
lovely location - anonymous
3-25-2019. I loved walking this with my favorite Jaci, Hazel, and Jules.
Monday March 25. Years have come and gone - time transforms this place, adorns the path with ice and dormant things and then with summer flowers and strange buzzy bugs for which I have no name. Yet the energy of the labyrinth endures all. This place continues to bring me peace, spiritual healing and a strange but mystical connectedness with the flora, fauna, and beauty of Flagstaff. With love, N.G.C.
March 25 2019. Really enjoyed the trail. It gives a lot of time to think about the importance of existence.
This reminds me of a movie "Letters to Juliet." If you haven't watched it, you should ... Cecile B. 2019
March 27 2019. Came to this place out of curiosity and I was not disappointed. Great place to hang out and get in tune with ones self. - someone disapointed about their spelling errors. ☺
This place was nice and has a great view, everyone can enjoy it. Plus it has the best weather if not the only place close enough to a enjoy a trail close to school... this is a movie scene!

We smoked dank weed at the labyrinth. 10/10 would recommend - your local 420 enthusiasts

March 29 2019. When there's no other reflection to reflect at yourself, who do you see? Is this the eye that sees beyond preconceptions of various states of being? Is this the eye that is authentically self without judgment for oneself or other. What does freedom of self expression look like to you. - Siva Shiva

3/30 Yo dawgs shout out to the birthday 19th ya boi
I've been coming here for years. In the past with friends, on several Thanksgivings with my family so we can all think about what we are thankful for in silence, and today in spring with my son. The chimes have lasted so long and always make me smile. Definitely one of the magic spaces in FLG! Thanks for helping care for it!
March 30 2019. Came out for a run and found this place. Kinda cool but also not!! Pretty view! Thinking about how bad life can be. :(
March 30 2019. Been here before and it was cool to see that the labyrinth is still here to escape from the university. Stay the course that is this life.
Love, Love, Love ♥ Very healing meditation, reflection, freedom, manifestation. Thank you for this labyrinth. E.
March 31 2019. Thank you rocks & earth & mother nature for being here for us. Erika. Hermosa Beach CA
April 3 2019. second visit to this labyrinth. It's a time to think and de-stress. -- From Jennifer & Jasmine, California
April 5. The first time I came here a few weeks ago was really hard. I wasn't calm and even though I tried to feel peace, I didn't. But Kevin told me it was OK, even if I was angry I could just stump it out in the circuits. But today I feel calm and peaceful - the day is beautiful and I feel the power! ☼
April 6 2019. Wonderful place, beautiful views, a good place to bring your dog.
April 9 2019. Live the adventure! This is great L & F ♥
April 12 2019 Seeing this labyrinth, the signs leading up to it, cool experience. Felt like something out of Skyim, with quest markers. Life can be depressing sometime. - college student, 21, M
great for cult activity
THis is my second time coming here. It is very beautiful here. Shen you come here is is like home.
April 13, 2019. We found this book while hiking, wanted to leave a message. ♥ - S & C & T & J
If I were a poet /I would write a poem that would make the oceans clean again. /I would write a poem so pure it would rain for days and when the skies were clear again, /a million stars would fill the summer night. /I would write a poem to make the people see guns are bun and unworthy of our love. /I would write a poem to make all the bullets disappear. -from the inexplicable logic of my life by Benjamen Alire Saenz ☼

April 16 2019 Lilly wants us to know she no longer Lilith, she is reborn as Aetemis, Mary Magdeline, and mother Mary. The Inanna is as balanced, blessed, and pure as each of the child goddesses who have walked this path!
Leave your guilt and shame and fear behind, we are one, you are sources, and your are forgiven. ☼
We can no longer think of this as a goddess portal, we are not learning to balance masculine and feminine.
April 17 2019 11:10 AM. What change my life is at. I came here asking only for love as I found it within myself. I have found love but not the kind I deserve. I deserve better. But I feel struck when I hold all the power. I don't want to leave another human on the streets. I want to see the world thrive. I keep asking for guidance, strength. I surrender. Please, Highest Good for all.
Divine put your power in me and speak thru me.

April 19 19, First actually warm day of the year. We took a walk because I wanted to show him this place. A beautiful day. ♥ J
4/20. Ya bois again. We've been here a few times now and it gets better every time. Remember to drink water, smoke bud, respect women, and all out just have a good time. PS happy 420, be safe.
Happy Easter and 420. Blaze it and praise it! ♥ C & C of the Radiant Circle.
Nothing is ever as it seems but through open mind, heart, new realms of perception begin to open.
Blessed are the ones who walk the path rather than waiting for the path to open.
4/21 Happy easter, thank you for the peace and quiet.
4/22 First time in Flagstaff and decided to come up here on a whim. The sound of the wind and the chimes really set the mood. Might be falling in love with the place but I'm not sure I really belong here. This may be a stretch to draw this conclusion but it seems the things I love the most are those I'll never truly have or understand. peace & be well
4/22/19 Awesome day for a walk. ☺

Thanks so much Noah! Today is my 30th birthday and I'm grateful to be in such a beautiful place with reflective spaces like this. It's also mile 575 of 800 on the Arizona Trail which I've been hiking since March 14. How vital it is to connect with nature - life - of which we are a part. How magical is a single breath, which really isn't so simple after all. The inhale which melts into an exhale. Reminders for this new decade: keep breathing, keep speaking, keep loving, keep being you. Say no. And say yes. I'm starting a new project - the idea came on the hike - called "The Encouraging Times" a newspaper/zine of uplifting stories. I'd loive to a include a stroy of yours! Page will be up in few days with info: rebeccarosethering.com/the-encouraging-times. Keep on living - being present - and loving! Warmly, Rebecca.
Don't overthink it! Just do it! And also I LOVE YOU. - Amber

ACG. April 30 2019. A poem for inner conflict. /I like to hear the wind /whistling by my ears. /Take heed of this landscape /have no fear. /I can seem my demons growing /in the rear view mirror. /I shake, I stumble, I quiver and quake /like a lone aspen in a meadow, stuck to the ground. I tremble but I I will not mumble. /I will not go quietly into this ramble. /I will rage, rage against the dying of the light. /I will not go into that dard night. /The rocks stand strong against the storm /the trees bend but never break. /this will not be my last take. /fate has brought me into the fight. /So I put my shifter in reverse and hear the good ole wind whistling by my ears. /and if I end up the a hearse, the eulogy will say. /he gave his demons one hell of a fight.
George. May 3 2019. I just moved here from San Diego by train. I arrived early morning on the first and had picked up a stomach bug on the way. I've spent 2 days in bed, and today I left the house. I am in total awe. This place is truly magical. I came to Flagstaff to start over. I am 31 years old and have been addicted to drugs most of my life since teen age. Coming here is a chance for a new life for me, and stumbling on this labyrinth is a sign.
Warm out and tanning nude as a nudist does feels perfect. I hope all are having an awesome day. Stay smiling it's good for the woul. @wixarts.
When fear is entertained, genius is suppressed.

Never knew of this place and I've lived here 3 years. Wow!
26 May 2019 Beautiful day with birds singing and sun shining. Days like these or even rainy ones remind me how peace and simplicity exist in all forms. I believe "Earth is law" in time of creation of destruction. We live only once, with no heaven or hell to go to. Always remember we have One body, One mind, One soul, One Love, One Heart.

June 1st 2019. We (myself and my 2 young daughters) just found the labyrinth by chance and are so excited to be here. I believe human life a about growth and transformation back into the angels we once were and that still exist in us. This happen by fully embracing the human experience, life and death, and all the while giving yourself to God. ♥

3 June 2019. Sometimes I walk the path and sometimes the path walks me and sometimes we walk together in love.
June 3 2019. I have not walked here in a few years but I just lay here in sprinkles of rain. It was very therapeutic, especially with music. ♥ a lonely heart.

June 13 2019. I miss my little girl... my best and only girl... the labyrinth is my solace. I love you, Fennie ♥
June 14 2019. I'm really struggling mentally, physically, and financially. I hate breathing, living.. feeling. But I just found the place and I feel oddly calm here. I wish I could just sit here all day and listen to the birds. I'll be coming back... I'm just so depressed, I always have been. I can't sleep wither. I hate feeling like this. Hopefully this is a turning point. Soaking up all the Vitamin D must help. I doubt anyone reads this and if someone did they'd probably make fun of it but if you relate to how I'm feeling you are not alone. Never give up, no matter what.
(response to above) You are not alone. - Max & Sam.
(another response on same page) I've been in your place before and still haven't entirely escaped it. Start new, live simply, do things out of the ordinary, and speak positivity into existence. Who are you! Answer that question and question your answer. You will survive this... time stops for no one, move with it.
June 14 2019. Beautiful labyrinth! The wind chimes and tower bell in the distance added to the experience and then the crows joined in. Thank you for such a beautiful place.☺ -Echo Dawn
June 14 2019. The beauty. The calmness. The peace... All as one brings back memories with happiness and joy. My good friend Cato and my girlfriend Savie smiling, shines rays of happiness off the sun and their smiles. It's a good day. -Ty T_

June 16 2019. Your thoughts and projections tells the universe what to do. If you believe bad things will happen to you, she will hear you and give you bad things. She hears you but does not control your life. You have the power and words and she supports them. She'll bring reunion with an dold friend when she hears "today will be agood day". She will bring loneliness when she hears "No one invites me anywhere." Pay attention to your mental power on your reality and start controlling it. PS: Thanks to whoever left the bag of Ruffles, I ate my share and left the rest. Whoever finishes the bag, please carry it out. Leave no trace. PPS. I'm gonna start bringing food too.

June 20, 2019. Going thru changes is never easy and sometimes you need to stop and remind yourself that it's part of something bigger. I hope you you find pace in this labyrinth like I did.

June 22 2019. I first came here a year ago when I boy I loved moved away. He loved birding and would solo camp for days to see a rare bird for a few moments! I came here and walked the path silently, listening to the birds, I knew he and I were both free. He was a bird and I was the wind. We sent different directions. And that's OK. Today I was walking by and the labyrinth called me. I sat on the this bench to slow my mind. I have learned to fall in love every day. Maybe with a beautiful stranger, the swaying of the trees, or a new poem. Even on the worst day, I fall in love. The journey & uncertainty of life is beautiful. Stop & listen to the birdies. - xx Jasmine
I don't know how to say goodbye. I can't get myself to say how much I love you, when it means you'll hang up the phone. Saying goodbye is hard even when the trees, wind, and clouds are rooting for me. Every day I try to do what scares me, so if you haven't heard it yet... goodbye. I love you.
To the clouds, the new me that emerges each day, the people I love, and Arizona.
Take care of yourself - LU ♥

Time sure goes faster as I get older July 28, 2019
July 28 2019. I needed this today. Walking in silence is always a good thing. A moment to reflect on my life was the medicine I needed. What you put in life helps you get more out of it. If you go in with a goofy thought process, you have a good time. But if you want to grow from it, go in with a meditative thought process. Today I felt peace, strength, and loved every moment. Thanks for the break from life. ☺ Chava. JM.
July 29 2019, Hi my name is Edgar A_-M_ and I will be a 2020 olympic gold medalist.
F* the government and false institutions. Show compassion for each other and the environment. Don't be too hard on yourself.
July 29 2019, Today is now and will never come again. So I set an intention to receive guidance before "the walk" and I got it. I learned to love your own mind and trust it. If you get lost, it's OK, you get back up again. I also processed what was holding me back in life to I could let it go. I left behind doubt, fear, and self-limiting beliefs. Then I read other people's comments in this book and as I read I thought "I love you. I you were here, I'd hug you. I felt moved by their honesty, and it inspired me to share. We all crave connection, and if we're not getting ti, we need to change ourselves inside or by seeking the creative god of love. -- Chara
Aug 2 2019. Went on this walk today to find my courage again. Lost it when she asked me if it was in. I feel worthless. Couldn't give her pleasure, and now I can't even give me pleasure. Maybe I'll get a growth spurt but not likely for someone in late 40s. I'll return to finish this page if I ever get my courage back...
Aug 3 2019. Hey, it's raining. That's meaningful, right?
It's fund to fill in the hearts.
Happy to celebrate a lovely sunset with friends and conversation. woof-woof. ♥
Night is falling. The party member whose birthday we are celebrating is off to heed the call of a cat he thinks may be in heat. The other two are doing a Pisces-Virgo dance of one smashing the other. The one on the bottom is a massage chair. which one is whic. Meow. ♥

March 30 2020. I've only been here twice but every time I came after a big change in my life. On the walk in, I remember the things that got me through the journey. The tears, the pain, the smiles, the people. Then on the walk out I imagine the years to come. I don't know if it is supposed to be as emotional as I make it, but I always leave with a clear mind and a new ambition.
March 30 2020. Thanks to the labyrinth caretakers who repaired the bench and created a new way to leave comments. It is so sad that Flagstaff has one frustrated, unhappy, powerless person who finds vandalism the only way to express himself. I hope he gets well and becomes a caretaker himself someday.
March 31 2020. The real experience was the joy of peace and quiet with my mother. Now I have not seen her in 3 months and with this awful pandemic it was great to fell wonderful quality time with her today as I walked alone. I hope to return to the labyrinth in a year or two and reflect on the beautiful woman I spent time with today. I'll do another walking meditation with my distant mother's presence.
April 1 2020. Inner peace. ♥ If you read this during COVID-19, I hope you are finding calm during this havoc. ♥
Blaze it T/B. Thank you for the labyrinth!

Amazing experience on acid.
It was fun, Made me have positive thoughts. A great place to enjoy nature. Sophie T.
I enjoy walking and running through the maze, having happy thoughts. Good energy when I made it to the finish. Chad T.
April 13 2020. It's been a hard day. I learned my roommate has COVID. I ache and long for my family, the comfort of community, even if just in the form of a cup of joe from firecreek. I was moved to feel the earth under my feet, and the cairn at the center of the maze... to know that there are form older, wiser, and stronger than I. I lean to these teachers. PS. I love Drew F_.

April 23 2020. I somehow always find myself here when I'm looking for some guidance. I'm kind of lost in life right now, but I am also at the most peace. Life has gotten a lot more quiet. I graduate in a few weeks and have to figure out my life. But for once I just want to live without desiring to reach some end goal. I want to fly.. I want to be free.. I want to spread my wings without the thought of a final destination. I'm listening to the wind and I'm dreaming big dreams.
April 25 2020. Tom Noga, my best friend from 1970-1980 died 2 days ago in Virginia. On my run this morning I encountered 2 pronghorn in the woods about 2 miles SE of here, for the first time in 14 years of running that route. Romance blossoming among house wrens, house finches, nuthatches, red-winged blackbirds, and flickers. Life is so beautiful and ephemeral that I cry with joy and sadness.
That was intense! I feel freer! I feel my problems are going to get better
April 25 2020. H & D ♥ This is probably the first time my head has been completely completely empty when I'm alone. I feel like time just fewl by. Also I realized that I'm definitely going to spend the rest of my life with my person.
April 25. D & H ♥ I was trying to use this walk as a time to think about problems in my life but I had a hard time to think about things and walk the maze at the same time. I realized that my restlessness and need to always be active or productive comes from me not wanting to think about the problems I am facing. But being productive also is also me passing through these problems. Just confirming my feeling that there is not a second to waste.
April 28 2020. I had a question of how to heal... The answer given was "learn to use what you do not understand." Just do it anyway... learning comes with action not contemplation, no need to grasp it mentally if you can enact it.
May 2 2020. This labyrinth is super dope and it inspired me to go out more. I'm gonna show this to my mom, she will love this.
May 4 2020. Crazy how bigger strides get you to the same destination quicker. Also crazy how this paper is blinding me.
May 4 2020 Although I remember the beginning fondly, I can never return to that moment for I was a different person.
May 5 2020. Out walking our dog in this great weather with my amazing girlfriend.
(attempted translation from childlike printing, few spaces between words, and unique spelling such as "epresh eat" for "appreciate") It was fun too I so.. and most in got it. this is famole mas we we appreciate your help Yours Phoebe G_
May 5 2020 My son had a great time. As for myself, it's great to spend time with my family but mostly to be in the open.
May 6 2020. After training in the labyrinth I find a sense of spirit. A calm joining with the air and the sound of the wind. After hearing a response from an old friend from 30 years ago I was happy to experience Facebook. Today is a good addition of my grieving process. I grew up in Flagstaff, came her in 1983 and stayed. Didn't finish high school, tried other cities but not more than 7 months away led me back here. I lost my mom last week. And I pray with her now. Thank you so much to the City of Flagstaff.
unknown day in Coronaville... A simple day, in a simple time. Thoughts can be the energy of actions. Keep your loved ones close. Never stop working here on happiness. Asi P_
I didn't follow the path because it took too long. I can't wait to show more people this labyrinth.
May 7 2020 Finding solace in being present and enjoying the warm sun on a body that has been cold for too long. Today is a good day. - K. C_
Running is hard
May 8 2020 This is one the best things ever!
May 9 2020. As a white trail runner since 1974, I am immune from being murdered for running while white. Today I ran with Ahmaud Arbery, a young black man murdered for running while black, and whose murderers were not prosecuted until the video went viral. Today I kept imagining that I was approaching a white pickup truck stopped in the street, and then passing it on the right...
May 10 2020. As a teenager in Augusta, Georgia in 1968 I saw 4 cops walk up to an (apparently unarmed) black man and immediately beat him to a pulp. When I asked what was going on, I was ordered to leave. I called the police station that evening and again the next day but they said no incident occurred at that place and time. I wrote a letter to NAACP offering to testify if the case came to their attention. Nothing happened. It has haunted me all my life. Now 52 years later, white thugs killed a black man in another Georgia town, and would've got away with it but for the video. This may be progress, but it is damn slow...
May 9 2020. My main struggle recently has been letting the illusion of my ego get the best of me. It creates needless fear and anxiety that hold me back. So today I grabbed a rock from my room and brought it here. I let it hold all the negative thoughts that hold me back. As I walked to the center, I thought of the pain I've been feeling, then in the center I prayed to leave it all behind with the rock. As I walked out I played my favorite song. I am ready to be myself. I am ready for love.
May 12 2020. I've heard it before, yet it is so easy to forget. "It isn't about where life takes you. It is about the journey along the way."
May 12 2020. Well here I am. There I was. Making car noises in the labyrinth because drifting am I right? High as a kite. Right here. Right now. ♥ vspec
May 13 2020. In the midst of COVID-19 quarantine, I found the love of my life. She is precious, sweet, strong, tenacious, incredibly intelligent, compassionate, relentlessly supportive, and my soul mate. She is beautiful beyond belief, the most gorgeous person to grace this planet. the love of my life. rjs ♥
May 13 2020. Coming back here two years later, I reflect on my my life has been and I'm grateful on this experience I am having on earth. Peace & love.
May 14 2020. We stumbled upon this place by accident. Before we left to explore I set the intention of adventure. What were the the chance we actually found it?
I love my girlfriend, she's really cool.
A lizard told me "there is one way to happiness. live in love and light."
May 16 2020. Cool.☺ It was nice.
May 16. Today I reflected on being happy and enjoying every moment with my family. ♥
May 16 2020. I shouldn't wear my brand new vans in the woods.
I was directed to listen to the cosmos. We are one with Gaia and every plant, animal, mineral, and spirit of the vast universe or universes! I was directed to hold my hands out to receive energy from the lava rocks as I walked - my hands were abuzz! One my return the plants called out for blessings and to add their energy. Three lizards wanted to play - they are from my lemurian ancestors! So bright and lively! Blessed be this place. Thank you for your knowledge, and my remembrance of my mission and service.
Water would've been nice during the labyrinth.
May 17 2020. I am in Flagstaff because my daughter was hit by a car here while out running. She has fractures and a traumatic brain injury. Thank you for providing a quiet place outside to walk calmly and reflectively. Thank you to everyone who values peace, good energy, the earth, and the goodness of the universe.
May 21 2020. I am especially grateful for the two girls who experienced this journey with me, Sara and Rachael. I am grateful that I will have my own apartment in about a month and will make it my own space. ♥ I am grateful for all the friends that I now consider family. They bring me towards the happiest I've ever been.
May 21 2020. Where to begin? The connection to nature through this experience is astounding. What a useful tool to practice observance, patience, and faith. The spiritual energy is strong here. I gained perspective here today. I am grateful to have experienced this with my friends and also to have an intense personal experience with myself... Trudge on, you curious minds... this world has much to give you. ♥
Thank you. Today I am grateful for life. The labyrinth represents life starting with being born and ending with death, and I was captured by the energy here. Gratitude is everything.
I'm leaving Flagstaff soon. Flagstaff and the labyrinth have always been a safe place for me. This place had served its purpose for me. I only hope it serves others too. I hope to come back someday. - Hayley
May 23 2020. I feel connected to ancient, long-gone people who also walked labyrinths. I feel connected to nature watching the lizards dart around. I feel connected to beauty seeing the wild roses and listening to the chimes. I feel connected to Flagstaff byr the lava stones I walk through. I feel connected to Flagstaffians as I hear the traffic on Lone Tree Road and see bikers and hikers on the trail below. I feel connected to mother earth as I feel her beneath my feet. I feel connected to those individuals I hold in my heart as I walk. I feel connected to those whose hands carried and placed the rocks to build this labyrinth. With gratitude, A. N.
May 25 2020. I saw the future. D. Lex. ☺Get lost in the labyrinth.. it works. I didn't know better than to jump the wall - L.S.
May 28 2020. After going for a walk on the FUT with my partner, we came across the patch leading to the labyrinth. We walked to the center, enjoying the space and energy that resides here. We will revisit soon! Thank you for this space.
May 28 2020. I think I saw a fairy but I haven't slept in over 24 hours so I don't know. Cory ♥
May 28 2020. There are bones in the labyrinth and a poem about "the way." /Death has been signified, I hear the message every day. /And while my soul longs to be hear I don't know what it has to say. /But the comfort of the labyrinth reminds me that everything will be okay.
Our journey started here and along the way we learned about ourselves and others!
May 31 2020. I grew up in Calaveras ("the skulls") 2 streets west of here. Dead peoples' bones exhumed a few years before my birth surely influenced the neighborhood. A woman in a white flowing gown and "La Llorana" were occasionally sighted in the Rio de Flag. As NAU encrouaches on the dearly departed on its eastern border, will a high tech old age vision of age old reality emerge? - S.G.
June 2 2020. God loves tortoises. God loves unicorns. - Raven, 3 years old.
June 2 2020. Today I fell a little overwhelmed by school. Just moved to Flag, then found I got into med school in Michigan. I'll miss being able to go outside all day and enjoy beauty surrounding me. Regardless I'm grateful to be here, to be healthy, to be in nature at this moment. Day-by-day you will get through.
June 4 2020. My heart is heavy. I will transform the heavy sorrow for COVID-19 sufferers and the violence related to the murder of George Floyd. I will make it heavy love (Mali Music). Resistance is futile. Stand on the side of love. As Mamuse sings "we shall be known by the company we keep /by the ones who circle round to tend these fires. /We shall be known as the ones who sow and reap /the seeds of change from deep within the earth. /It is time now, it is time now that we thrive. /It is time we lead ourselves into the well. /It is time now and what a time /to be alive in this great turning /we shall learn to lead in love. /In this great turning we shall learn to lead in love!" --Amy
June 5 2020. I wasn't expecting to come this far today, wasn't expecting to go on a hike and find this place I didn't know existed. It was nice. The farther I went in, and the more turns I took, the more things I noticed... a fallen tree in the distance, a flower at my hand slightly taller than the others. It was fun, and a nice break from the streets.
June 5 2020. This has been a hell of a year. Very grateful to return to this spot that years ago brought me and those around me much solace. Thank you Universe, Father Sun, Mother Moon. I am grateful to introduce myself to another generation of labyrinth walkers. ♥
June 6 2020. Black lives matter. June 6 2020. Takes a good soul to appreciate the efforts. Takes a good soul to love, understand. Be a good soul. We need more. Much love.
June 6 2020. I felt sad when I came back out - for a split moment, then a hummingbird cam to greet me. The native vegetation, the location, the birds, wind chime, signage - everything about this experience makes me grateful. Thanks to those who created and maintain this space. Especially Dr. B. ☺
June 6 2020. Watching my dog hop from path to path as I remained on my own path to the center and back out. I am reminded that we are moving through time and space but always in the body and at the present moment. Perspectives change but the constant consciousness remains. - Juan V_
June 6 2020. Today I reflected on my want to structure and compartmentalize my life. It's more important to enjoy the ride than stress about the journey.
June 7 2020. L Dogg appreciated the green trees and landscaping. Also disturbed by the used COVID mask in the center. B noticed L Dogg talking a lot. And was cute.
Three steps in I kicked a rock and broke my toes. What does this mean for me? I was pulled into the rock by my dog Karma.
June 11 2020. I'm leaving Flagstaff soon, and the labyrinth was one of my favorite places. Close enough that I could take a lunch break, and the epitome of Flagstaff beauty. Though it is time for new adventures, Flagstaff will always hold a precious place in my heart. ♥ CH
June 12 2020. I feel so guided and loved by the universe. -- the Avatar ♥♥♥☼
June 14 2020. I will be moving soon, this is one of my last visits here. There four years have been a blessing and the path ahead is beautiful. There is always more truth ahead of us and I'm honored to have shared in the journey of the labyrinth.
June 16 2020. This is where I come sometimes to take Canela on walks. Canela is god's gift to the world if there is one. She loles to run the maze and eat the ants that live here. But something shady is foing on here... the gree in front of me has a santissima muerte (death statue) under it, and two skulls in the middle of the maze. I saw various keychains, a pen, a mask, keys, a deer bone, pricess Elaa... ?!? Whatever cult this is, I hail to thee! - Natalia G___
June 20 2020. I am impressed that 1/4 mile path fits in such a small space. I tried to make it metaphor but I stayed in there too long and realized it was just some well-placed rocks. not everything has to mean something. Nice trail.
I love you.
June 25 2020 The pandemic continues.
June 29 2019 ♥ Love & Light. It's so hard to just enjoy the fleeting things around you: nature, joy, happiness, just being alive. This place helps me be here now and appreciate the gift of being alive. I wish to be like this all the time. - Andrea
Matt wuz here.
July 2 2020. I'm a long time vegan, working at McDonalds. Will the karma come back to haunt me? Or will my pushing of flesh to people suffice as a sacrifice to my beloved yellow lag, Hark? Since working at McDonalds I have numbed to cooking sentient beings, but I still remember my initial shock. How do people numb themselves to cruel and painful acts? I don't know if I can keep working at McDonalds but he may have other plans.
July 2 2020. In remembrance of grandma we walk the labyrinth. Coming to it for answers, comfort, and peace. May we continue to live our lives with the strong quiet force she always had.
Thank you. Meditating and praying at the labyrinth has brought me much peace and joy this summer.
July 5 2020. ♥ I am at peace. While walking the labyrinth I felt many different energies... peace happiness, sadness, brokenness. Many beautiful item in the path including paper quotes, amethyst, a figurine, 2 skulls, several big rusty nails. As I stand here I can't help but imagine the labyrinth as a giant walk of life that we all follow bu experience differently. I will move away from Flagstaff in the coming weeks but knowing that special places like this exist reminds me that I will always have a home here. ☮
You wouldn't get it. -- Joker

July 25 2020, 6:24 PM. To get to your goal there may be an easy way. Get to work and go thru the path, you get to see the beauty and also the ugly but at the end you made it. ♥
July 25 2020. There is no right way. I am what I am. I am where I am. I am happy.
Thank you!! I'll come here when I'm 50. Watchu gigglin about? Zepplin.
I am so happy. ☺

(early August 2020). Someone left $12 cash in the comment box for the first time since this project began in 2013. The money will go to Flagstaff Family Food Bank.
Aug 7 2020. I think people leave stray thoughts here. As I walked the labyrinth, I wondered how many people had the exact same thoughts... "I'm so incredibly lonely" "The path to understanding is never straight." "Look! a lizard!" "These flowers are beautiful" "When will this be over? I'm tired of being alone with my thoughts." I suppose we all have these thoughts whether they happen in a labyrinth of not. Such universal feelings, such overwhelming meanign. -E.A.D.
We are probably cursed because two of us cheated! -Lily

Aug 31 2020. I hope for peace and love for all the families I serve. I hope for health and healing for myself and all the people in my life. May you also find peace, love, and healing.
I didn't mean to fall out of love with you. The dark days still overwhelm the good. Happiness is a mindset I'm not ready for. Being sad is all I know.
"You are hard to read" "You have to do what you say you're going to do." "She's made me depressed in this relationship." I'm obsessed with bringing myself happiness; however I have destructive habits. I don't want to explore the world right now. I enjoy living a simple risk free life full of adventure.
Sep 13 2020. This stupid pandemic tore you and me apart. It wasn't anyone's fault. That's the worst part. I was so helpless as we had to put more distance between us. I thought that one we were back here together again it would be normal, but you already made up your mind.
I worry that I am responsible for my clients but they are not my problem. I'm sad that I can't always fix the hurt that is in this world.
To: People of Flagstaff. From: a girl that is 8 years old. Please pray that the virus will go away and pray that my tics will go away and help the doctors can do the best they can to help people not be scared. "I did not give you a spirit of fear." Timothy 2.

Oct 10 2020, Justin P_. Come up here often from Tucson to visit family and this is always a place for me to realign. Thank you.
Oct 10 2020. I come here whenever I visit Flagstaff and family. Most times I'm in good health and spirits and today is such a day. I don't believe in tragedy without comedy in balance, You can suffer in life or laugh about your faults and change for the better. We don't need sadness or hate to consume us, but strong feelings help us see the best in life. I love you even if you are not here today, I will see you the future. Lates. Justin Paul aka gaap66
Oct 10 2020. Dream come ture. Happy family big house all together and everyone will have super powers. Godzilla will be real, Giving and having a good time.
Oct 12 2020. The universe put this labyrinth in my path just when I needed it. It's humbling to know I am on the outward ring of my journey. The center is my reflection point - peace. I have seen the road ahead because I have taken it before. I will take comfort in the twists and turns. -TD
Oct 13 2020. Ecclesiastes 3:1-8. For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.

Nov 4 2020. Grateful for family, friendship & opportunity. To walk this labyrinth and express these feelings is a blessing. Life is good. Aloha, Alicia
Nov 6 2020. Once again JPZ is up in Flagstaff. Went to Grand Canyon and picked pinyons and reset my spiritual battery. Had some hardships but today is one of the best mornings I've had because I've gained insight to what I need to do to be at peace. Righty-o "JPZ"
Nov 6 2020. Might be Nov 7. Oh well. Anyhow, much love to those who have passed this year and those that need love in their souls and hearts. I love you all...
Nov 7 2020. One day, everything will be OK, You're on the right patch. Biden won the election today. Take your time. Alden
Nov 9 2020. I like to walk while I think. Regular meditation doesn't always help me. The rock border allows me to simply walk a guided path and concentrate on other things and not worry about where I'm going.
Nov 9 2020. I think I will come here more often. This really hit the spot.
11. Dear self, I know you are anxious and traveling through tricky divets in the mind but I assure you you are amazing. I promise you will gain what you seek and more. Your perserverence and strength is great. You have faith from everyone around you, and more importantly from yourself. You have such great powers that have he to surface, and when they do, know that you deserve every gift.

Nov 14 2020. I don't know where I am or how I got here. But I was meant to be here. I am alone, I am quiet. I am not afraid. I have never seen a labyrinth before, but here I am. I hope peace may one day find me again. I hope it my find me here. Thank you.
Nov 14 2020. This too shall pass. Feel the love of the earth surround you and bask in it. We need you.
My muse is unraveling. I feel present, happy, and attentive. I wish you good health.
Nov 14 2020. Found on a whim, really glad I did. In 3 words, I can sum up everything I've learned about life. IT GOES ON... I hope you find peace again. This might be a start. Audrey ♥
It does get better. -Grace.
You are enough. - Sam S_

Nov 20 2020. I leave and find a part of myself everytime I'm here. Today, I left anonymity. I succumbed to the terror of life that is being known. I found pain. Repressed pain. A pain I had not let myself feel yet. I entered a part of myself I had not yet explored. I have not felt this before. I hope not to feel it again. xx Rose

Nov 23, 2020. Someone I care about took me to this spot in a time of sadness and stress. As I walked through the labyrinth I thought about how lucky I am to have her in my life. I would do anything to return the favor. Someday I like to think I will be able to do so. Thank you for the insight and clarity on what really matters in my life.
Nov 23, 2020. Sometimes even when everything else falls away, a few simple things remain. Nature. Music. Simplicity. Sometimes people are just a distraction.

Take your time! - Alix, Cody, Mellow
Being gay in public is more top secret than I thought. Time slows down in the labyrinth.
Dec 25, 2020. There's a beautiful stillness and calm special to Flagstaff that I hope is preserved thru all the expansion and building. On this day (Christmas) while I am missing the snow and biting cold, this opportunity has undiminished spirituality. I have finally the peace within to let go of the burdens I've acquired over a few years in my current residence, and I think I'm ready to move on to my next adventure. Thank you for letting me experience this place.
Jan 1, 2021. 2020 was not the best year. May people died, many families broken. For 2021 I hope for happiness, love, and financial stability. Many people may be left in 2020 but I wish love and light for everybody no matter what life has thrown at them. 2021 is our year, it's going to be better. ♥ Love, freedom, wealth and happiness!
Jan 1, 2021. hope for a better year. 2020 was not the year for everyone. Reflecting about what I have done good and bad, wishing for a better me, work on me, care for me, and most important love myself ♥ and be forgiving to everyone who hurt me.
Jan 1, 2021. I have not been here in a while. I forgot how fun and amazing it is. I also forgot about all the great memories here. I am glad I am back. - Autumn, 4th grade
Jan 1, 2021. I remember walking this labyrinth with my now almost 1-yr-old daughter strapped to my front in a baby carrier. So much has happened since then. So many joys and beautiful memories. And sorrows too. I'm thankful that a place such as this exists. I's so glad to walk it with my daughter who suggested we come here on New Year's Day 2021. ♥ with love and gratitude ♥
Jan 1, 2021. This year has been a tough one. But even through the trials and tribulations, I've had a great year. Graduated, got close to my family, and wen to the Army. If life got you low, just take one step, and once you do, you'll want to take another. Don't give up!
Jan 6, 2021. Holy! Holy! Holy! Where the ordinary meets the sacred. Thank you. - Stacey W_
Jan 9, 2021. Art is unnecessary, but so is seasoning. Art is involuntary, as is breathing. Art is seeking, finding, delivering, expelling. Are is community and solitude, a blanket and a breeze. Art is nourishment and starvation. Art is an upload and a download raging quietly, for all an none to hear. Ark asks nothing of you and requires nothing. Art is fury. Art is joy.
Jan 10, 2021. What's the purpose of having a partner or companion? What is added to life than one can't achieve alone? What is it about the human experience that wants/needs to be shared? How much is instinctual and fundamentally natural about that need and how much is indoctrinated or learned thru lived experience? The more I learn about myself, the more I realize how much our perspective is a choice. What we tell ourselves shapes our understanding and manipulates our experience of life!
Sometimes you just gotta give up and it just be like that.
It is nice to see such a beautiful view when the world we are living in can be so ugly. The melting snow is creating something new and beautiful.
Tried manifestation. hopefully it works. ♥ Happy 2021. ∞
14 Feb 2021 Came from Colorado, wife, husband, 2 dogs. Happiness is better when shared. Enjoy existing, be mindful, soak in the love, and don't be cruel. -- Scally crew II
When I was a boy, my fate was certain. I had to become a pickle. I never understood why this became my fate, but such it was. Nah but I really do want to be a pickle. I don't think my dad gave me love as an infant. If you are interested in my work, call me today at Joe's Barbeque and foot massage.
Forgive yourself. We on drugs, Thank you, I love you. Beautiful words she wrote.
This was hard! I liked it. Could be taller, like a corn maze.
24 feb 2021. Life's good, sun is shining, good people all around, no complaints.
Peaceful and fun! When I saw footsteps I pictured others walking and felt like I made friends. Loved the center. Will definitely return to meditate.
10 March 2021. Life is what you make of it. We are shaped by the good and bad moments. When we laugh and cry, and all the big and small moments. Life is beautiful and messy. I want to focus on staying present and enjoying all of it. I want to let go of negative energy. I am free and this is my life. I will attract things that are good for me and release the rest. Let's live a lot. We only got one life, so we must make it count. Don't sweat the small stuff.
16 March 2021. Just like a labyrinth, there's only one way into life and one way out. All you can do is walk as purposefully as possible between the two. The hard part is letting go of what the experience "should be." Thank you for the safe space you've created here. - Mary.
Be happy where you are, stop seeking better and live in the moment. Don't live for tomorrow because it might never come. Never stop challenging yourself to be the best version of you.
25 March 2021. 4:55 PM. The world is kind of ending be we're doing alright. Mica M_, Madison R_.
28 March 2021. Hi I'm Emily, I'm 21 and I need to pee.
28 March 2021, Saturday. ACE VSP. Spicy Mary HDD, Possibly Tan H_, Christus, Embers. I can't believe you can sit for 0.05 seconds and relieve yourself. This is just a lower-grade savers.
28 March 2021. Who knew there could be so much in the forest, makes me happy and excited and relieved.
Came to Flagstaff for the first time, it's pretty.
31 March 2021. I wish people would stop putting things in the center of the labyrinth. It is trash. Stop littering ! If I was going to make a movie, it'd be called "wAck."
31 March 2021. People ask me what I'm smiling about... Probably because I've never felt this high before. For one in my life I feel free of the mental manacles that once held me. Everything is new, the sights, smells, and sounds. It felt like I was in a game and any decision could be done over. But now life is more like a book - thought out, methodical, and often a bit of a bore just before the good parts... better keep reading. It will be interesting to see this chapter unfold.
4 April 2021. Wow I don't know who I am, which parts of myself to connect with and which to reject. But do I need to know? So I just keep looking forward and doing my best, but I can't shake the feeling that I need to resolve something inside me. I salute those who can manage the demands of the world and the complexity of the human brain. - DTTT
10 April 2021. In the last 2 weeks I have hugged 3 different friends (outside my household). My first outside hugs in a year. Ahhh...
Mushrooms are good. Life is god.
15 April 2021. Dear family, be happy and be so kind to other people. Love, Raven (4 years old)
17 April 2021, 544PM. While walking the maze I felt I was going in circles. I thought I'd never get to the center. But to be honest, to have life is to take small steps toward success. Sometimes you want to give up and sometime you feel you are in one place. Never give up. One day you will be at your success. Jocelyn R_
17 April 2021. This is a reflection by 2 visitors. At first glance, this looked small and quick. After some time we realize this was longer than we had expected. Mind was empty but felt full by the end. We were shocked that no one else was here. Although a road is nearby, it was very peaceful. We wonder how many people have passed thru this labyrinth. --Andrea R. and Fernando D.
21 April 2021. I am so grateful to be in a place where I'm always discovering. It never end in Flag. ☺ - Abby
22 April. Very cool. I had 3 cheaters with me, but I enjoyed!
It was really calming and therapeutic. I never knew when it sould end, but I pushed through. --Bianca R_
Walking the labyrinth gave me peace. I can breathe and allow myself to be in the moment. Something ancient, hard-wired in the human brain, taps into something deeply spiritual in the spiral shape. Thanks to those who had the wisdom to build this for our community, to those who maintain it, and to those who enjoy it. --Gary L_
30 April 2021. Fresh air on the skin /like water to the lips /All of us see the same /Yet interpret different. /Look outward and you will see inward. Look deep enough, and you will see it within you, too! Life is a sweet symphony these days, I am learning to love myself, and this path I am on. I am grateful for the people surrounding me. I remember to breathe and listen to the birds... Peace and love to all! ♥ (I love the springtime).
2 May 2021. Graduation done. Family together now. Happy times ahead. - Sarah, David, Beth, Bekah ☼ Thank you.
9 May. Came with 3 generations of strong women for mothers' day. Love the time and thought this area offered. ☺
10 May 2021. I found myself thinking of the wonders everyone knows but has never seen, wonders like magic, creatures of myth, fantastical journeys. While everyone knows these as fiction, all myth comes from somewhere. Stories of fantasy ring with truth. And this small reminder keeps wonder alive.
Some people (like my brother S) have no respect for the tranquility other people feel here. But yet, they always leave in a better mood than when they came.
Don't rape women. Help your friends. Take care of each other. Love one another. Protect one another. Leave the people who hurt you. Sometimes loving someone causes harm. Listen to the sighs your body makes when something isn't right. Love yourself the way you want to be loved. I care for you the way you care for others. Hold yourself up. ♥
Just because you fail does not mean you should end your life. You are better than that. You are worth more than that. Death is not the answer. xoxo ♥
15 May 2021. The windchime at the labyrinth has been repaired... how wonderful to hear so many tones again. What a fine day. Life is good.
15 May 2021. Beautiful, magical, serene experience. I just graduated from NAU. I love Flag and will neve forget memories like this. ♥
15May 2021. I first came here about 3 years ago for a class at NAU and I've found myself beautifully stunned and silenced by the the labyrinth's energies time and time again. In the past I've come for peace & clarity but today I came for the anniversary of my relationship and it left me feeling more love than I thought possible. And our Baby Yoda was adorable in it. ♥

18 May 2021. There's always a road forward. Even if you don't know the destination. But you don't have to take a pre-made path... you could be like the lizard scurrying from rock to rock, or to a new unknown. But no matter what you do, there will be tight places... don't give up! There is always something to look forward to. Keep pressing forward. Even if the narrow road is huddled by boxing trees or a dark crevice beneath the greatest rock, just keep pressing forward. You'll find something good along the way.
18 May 2021. Today was a good day because I got to hand out with my friend. We haven't done much together because of the pandemic so today was nice. I will miss her when she goes to Cali. But everything happens for a reason. Today made me happy and I hope summer is similar to today.
22 May 2021. Didn't ever plan on being here, but somehow here I am. That has to mean something, and that is all I need to keep on this righteous path.
22 May 2021. I'm grateful for the tears flowing down my face. It means I am alive. What better gift? Thank you Flagstaff for everything you brought into my life. I will miss you... But until then, stay Weird!
These fungi are sure fun guys.
23 May 2021. Happened upon this and it was a fun surprise. 1 Samuel 16:7. - Colemans
Hi! My name is Cora and I have a little bid of a cold. I am having a drippy nose right now. I also love mermaids and the color blue and I hate pink and unicorns (mermaids are cooler). I'm a girl and I hate pink.
25 May 2021. I've been feeling off today, probably because I got zero sleep last night. But my brain fell into a place that I don't like and thought was no longer part of me. It makes me anxious that people may see it an abandon me, but I think I've abandoned myself. From this point on, I will work to get her bac and never let her go. She deserves love and liberation. I deserve love and liberation.
Every rock, like every face, tells a story. And both show through their weathering.
Dear strangers, I don' t know what to write about other than honestly live your life according to you and what makes you happy. I've been going thru a lot recently, trying to change myself to make others happy and it exhausting. Writing in the rain right here is oddly comforting, so thanks to whoever built this. Y'all make my heart happy. - Stranger
14 July 2021. Feeling good today! Took my friend to my favorite little spot here (this labyrinth) and she seems to be enjoying it. The rain today adds to the peace. I feel relaxed and at ease for once. I'm so glad my friend is here today. she's made me and my summer a lot happier and fun. I'll miss her once I leave town in the fall. Best.
18 July 2021. I am here. Sometimes that's all that matters. I am here. You are here. And today I am with you the love of my life. I don't know what the years will bring, but I can't wait to experience them with you. I hope we never lose this love, and that we only grow it stronger.
21 July 2021. There's something terrifying about not knowing where you're going. You know you'll get there, but still knowing that something waits for you at the end.
I have a place in the universe. I just haven't found it yet. And I refuse to give all my time to others, I will instead use my time to find alive out my purpose. A little bit of space is healthy.
The labyrinth made me have to poo.
Let go of labels, they don't own you. You own the labels you give yourself. Cultivate your authentic self and anyone who doesn't like it - you don't have to interact with them.
Love and forgive. Yes, again.
I want to let go of the weight of Pleasing people and doing things for other people, putting on a facade that I'm OK when I'm not. I need to let go of always being joyful. It's time to embrace every emotion and be me!
I love you, friends. ♥
I moved to Flagstaff to start over. I've been on many journeys. This is the happiest for far. I think I love a girl... I'm sober now. This place is beautiful. I will come here often to meditate. - Jake.
Odd my snap silent blur. I'm 22, always trippy hippy happy.
6 August 2021. The labyrinth was really cool. It made me appreciate nature more. And my boyfriend. ♥ - Irving and Adela
15 August 2021. Beautiful reflections in a beautiful place - a chance to connect to my new home. (Please do not leave trash here).
(child's scribbling with adult comment:) Translation: I miss you, granddad.
This was such a cute location! We want to return with others to share the beauty of this place. We might plan a group activity where we leave small painted rocks in the middle for others to take. I hope this continues to prosper as the years go on, and thank you to whoever created this! Love, Jerrica
Distractions and worries do nothing but distract from the beauty and blessings in front of you. Let that sh** go! You are on the right path - forever and always. - 222
21 Aug 2021. Respect others. KSC ☺
25 Aug 2021. peace & love & happiness
Take a moment. Close your eyes. Feel the sun shining on you. Feel the breeze. Listen to the birds and bugs. Fully feel every sense of your body. you are fully experiencing the moment. You are one with all. Peace & blessings. ♥ ॐ
Late August. What's up? This is a good walk for All.
28 August 2021. I dropped my girlfriend off at the airport today. I miss her dearly. She will be gone about 12 weeks on eschange to Costa Rica. I will count down the 87 days until I see her. Sadly I don't have anything to leave at the center. Maybe she and I will come back later.
28 August 2021 I took the path. It was longer than I expected. I got two bug bites.
I love you all. See you. ☺ I love myself and all
1 September 2021. There was a bug chirping loudly throughout my walk thru the labyrinth. At one moment I realized the noise was coming from the center. As I kept walking, I felt close to the bug. I sat down in the center and listened to it.
After this walk I felt maybe life is worth living an extra day.
2 September 2021. I think this structure was interesting.
5 September 2021. I don't live in Flagstaff any more, just visiting a friend for the weekend but I was adamant that the labyrinth had to be part of our steps around town. It always brought me such peace during a turbulent period of my life. Thank you to the wind and the rocks and whoever built this space. When I walk the labyrinth, I recognize many plants by name, and it feels like old friends are here to greet me. I love the labyrinth. ☺ ♥
5 Sept 2021. Plants need to be trimmed but it is amazing~ 1/4 mile! -CM
6 Sept 2021. I came here before and its been something creative to do in Flagstaff. This time I came with my dog and boyfriend. It's nice to see the sun and flowers surrounded by rocks.
This is my first time here. I've known it was here for a year. Very interesting. I enjoyed the realigned path at the wind chime.
I think each rock in the labyrinth is one dead person. It's just what I think.
6 Sept 2021 I do not have much other than thoughts about how beautiful Flagstaff is. IT has the ability to put you in a trance. ♥
Bob Ross painting in real life. Come at the right time and the sun blends perfect thru the trees. Go outside! Enjoy nature!
10 Sep 2021. It was fun & interesting. The flowers and weeds were a nice touch. ☺
Family. Connections. Peace - inner peace. Breathing. Acceptance. Allowing. Being.
Arlo and Erez - M&D
11 Sep 2021. Very beautiful. Not sure I felt anything spiritual, but this was a very pretty work of art.
11 Sep 2021. Life is short so live it for you. No one else should direct or correct your life. Love you all. - Jeremy C ☺
28 Sep 2021, 5:51 PM. Thought it would rain today, but it didn't! Just cloudy and cold. We tried to discover a new trail, and heard screams... Dutch and Sushi joined us! C is doing midterm art project on today's adventure. A is having a great day. B = head empty, no thoughts. C needs to pee - seek medical attention. D feels full of adventures.
23 October 2021. After walking this maze, I had an epiphany about my ex-best-friend and my husband. They have been screwing around behind my back. Now I going to set his closthes on fire and tell her boyfriend. ☺
27 October 2021. The only reason for me to come to Flagstaff was to walk through this labyrinth. Thank you. ♥ It brought clarity to me. You are Beautiful, Brave, and Bright! Aloha and Mahalo ♥ Bless us all ♥ I feel gratitude. ॐ
30 October 2021. Walking the labyrinth is reflecting on the path of life. I started out curious and unable to focus on any one thing - excited by everything around me. I got quiet. I had to take a picture of everything. Then I slowed down, focusing on what was directly in front of me. Walking the labyrinth allows me to feel different emotions, curiosity, hurry, slowing down, boredom, not wanting it to end. Sometimes I feel I already been in this place and I wonder if I'm going in circles. Once in the center, I trust the path even when I don't know where I am and how much further I have to go to make my way back out.
1 November 2021. The labyrinth is one of Flagstaff's best kept secrets. I find inner peace here. ♥ Very well maintained. Thank you for the magic. ♥ ☺
4 Nov 2021. I am falling for this dumb !@#$% - and there is nothing I can do about it!
You brought me to this labyrinth once. This time I came alone, to think about what my life would be if I set out on my own. I took one step after the next on this path of stones. I thought about my years with you and how time has flown. Although we've been together for years, I now feel so alone.... At the labyrinth today, I came to see that I am already on my own...
5 Nov 2021. Melissa, George, and baby George (4 weeks old) visited on a fine autumn day.
Tammy I am so sorry for how I hurt you. But I need to let you go now. Thank you for everything. Love, KG ♥
29 Nov 2021. Today during my path in & out, I was with my partner and we were able to reflect and remember what our love is and why we appreciate and need each other. It has been a whirlwind of emotions for us for the last month and I am grateful we found serenity on our reflective walk in the labyrinth.
29 Nov 2021. My partner and I have gone thru a lot this last month and decided to go for a walk. Our walk led us right here to the labyrinth where we walked to the center and thought about ourselves and how we love each other. I will always be there for my partner, and I learned how to do that today.
30 Nov 2021. I only recently discovered the power of labyrinths from my mother-in-law. I am so grateful to have this in our community. Before I started my walk today, I asked "How can I become a happier person?" As I walked I learned "Let go. Stop trying to control everything." this was hard to hear but I know it will do me good. As I looked up I saw a windchime with "222" written on it. 22 is my lucky number, and 222 is an angel number for positive change and new beginnings. - Avonlea
2 Dec 2021. A lot has happened in the last year, Dad's in jail, Mom is abusive and manipulative, but hey at least my family is still alive. I am grateful that they taught me how blind I was, and not every experience is the same. I like some people and don't like others but when it comes to C I have no idea. I like having sex with him but I don't know... I come here every morning with my dog Rowdi. We love the labyrinth. He's getting good off leash. I did mushrooms the other day; I wish I had gone outside instead of listening to Jesse. I'm mad at myself for not standing up. Some a-hole kids just threw ketchup over the labyrinth signs - they won't realize how sacred a place can be until their minds grow. - KG
3 Dec 2021. Tommy, thinking about what we could have had makes my face warm. You could have loved me, but you didn't even know me when we had a young fling on that rainy day. I should've known it was you, and I'm sorry I robbed you of a more intimate first. You might hate me for that. I will happily say I loved you. I couldn't admit to myself what I felt for you until it was too late. You were also dealing with me at start of life-changing trauma. I needed to find myself. Yeah, I slept with a lot of people, but that was then. I wish you could see me now. I wonder how you would react.
gotta stay hydrated
8 January 2022. The highlights of 2021? visiting Flagstaff. good health. a family filled with love! I put snow for a glittery decoration. with love and peace K2RJ
10 January 2022. You can't change how people are. you can only change how you react to them.
14 Feb 2022. The labyrinth came as a surprise as we took our senior dog on a walk. We walked the labyrinth and at the end I needed to pee and he needed to sleep. Overall, a cool place to b, and brings what you need I guess. -Charlize & Griffin & Chubs ♥
18 Feb 2022. Came from Tempe AZ. 21-year-old girl just trying to find my path by continuing my journey... there's a long way till I succeed but I will leave my mark. Today was fun day, I went to snowbowl with Alonso, my first time his second, it was a blast.
19 Feb 2022. The memories you make with the people you love is the definition of happiness.
Interactions among consciousness are often seen to manifest as ubiquitous give and take. This is counterintuitive to the intent of the earth. We as humans must acknowledge our nature. all these interactions are temporary. Why perpetuate the proposed requisite negative?
I am currently here visiting my beautiful girlfriend and her college friend. It is my birthday today and I am so glad I can spend it with her. She is the love of my life. I hope I have a future with her. Other than that, life treats me well. I hope to focus on people and things that make me happy.
Things come and go. People come and go. All that remains are memories.
13 March 2022. Thinking about observing a lot. Thinking about growth and endings and beginnings. about art. and rocks and plants and so many things you can notice in one area before you stop noticing. It's nice to walk because you know you are going somewhere.
14 March 2022. Another year another bounty of memories. You part was with some people and let others in and receive the blessings or lessons they offer. Bearer of the curse... take the darkness form others, hold them high, and let their light outshine the sun. Their weight is that of a feather because they will take your hand and let you feel the warmth too. This curse is not what it appears, because the path is less treacherous with those who have seen the darkness. They will be your beacon, your lantern, your blessings. - C. H_.
18 March 2022. Grateful for my hometown and my mom. thankful for Julia that we're friends. Happy birthday Jake you know I love you. I'll keep pushing forward for myself and everyone else. See you again in the summer.
18 March 2022. Strange how my trip to Flagstaff has made me appreciate the sound of birds. I remember being young and being overwhelmed by their songs and annoying calls. My dislike grew when my phone alarm was the sound of a swarm of birds. I went to Sedona this week, I'd never heard of the city and didn't like their festive commercial streets. I liked the skate park, I don't skate but I liked the presence of skaters and bikers and hikers as I enjoyed crackers and cheese with my Flagstaff friend. Nice, sunny, mountains,... and the sound of birds! a beautiful moment. In a Gilmore Girls scene, Loreli says she only likes poptarts because her mother hated them. My old house was surrounded by bird feeders and birds. My mother loves birds.
19 March 2022. I stumbled on this site by accident while on a run. I hadn't run in a while but a Tiktok said if you ain't in a gym, they're f-ing your wife and I can't have that. I'm in love with M_. I 'm so happy when she's around. She's clever and her laugh is my favorite thing to hear. Sometimes she'll scratch my head or drum on my arm and it makes me love her more. As I walked the labyrinth I noticed I was getting closer though I seemed further away and I was getting further as I got close to the center but still leaving. It made me think of M_. She is such a free spirit, it felt symbolic. As I get closer, am I pushing her away? Will she just treat me as a friend like she always has? I've tried to get close before only to be friend-zoned. I love being her friend but I sometimes she seems more than friendly, but I can't be sure and I can't be sure and I can't risk losing her by making a bad move. I hope someday we'll be together. I love you M_. Hope you never see this but if you do I hope you feel the same.
I wonder how these woods and this area will feel after these drug-fueled hazy days are over. sober except the 4 leaf clover, am I ever getting closer? Yes, but what I take dilutes life. Tried to quit but highs are pinned to other highs. Controlled the one in the middle of my thighs but still I'm here again on an unplanned night. Told my dog I'd be by her side but drugs now reacting inside. Know I'll be fine but I never really make today the day I quit falling into this grip. It's my last step to take my life in directions few people do. I should enjoy food at the same time as people in my house do. Look Another payment for something due.
Not a suicide note. not a suicide note. not a suicide note. not a suicide note. not a suicide note. Pray for my friend, J&A
24 March 2022. It was a nice walk, and took my mind off my trouble holding on to life. Then some young rich a-holes in a pickup truck truck shouted catcalls at me. But I like this reflection sheet. Next time I will fill one out. If I am still alive!
26 Mar 2022. Came here with my girlfriend on a spur of the moment hike. We almost walked past the labyrinth when I saw the sign pointing the way. My girlfriend thought it was a curse symbol, but we are glad to see it. I was feeling stressed by school and life, and was nice to be in the moment. I found an unlit cigarette at the end, and picked it up, but then threw it out. This was a great find, will recommend.
27 Mar 2022. I went on a walk with my future husband today. It is a nice day outside. Wheeeeee!!! I love Jake.
Sky & Mac ♥ 4-ever ♥
I like how quiet it is, and seeing what others left. I left a giant spoon. I did backtrack because I was not paying attention.
I'm working on myself, and that brings reflection. I want happiness and moments like these to provide moments of calm happiness. Than you. ♥♥♥
Be present. It's all we really have. It's a gift (a present) to ourselves. ♥
My new favorite place to come.
3 April 2022. mindfulness, peace, love, joy, spirit.
Very fun! ♥♥♥
3 April 2022, 6:23 PM. Didn't think of much. It was neat just to walk and not have to be somewhere at a particular time. it's a beautiful labyrinth.
2 May 2022 ♥, I reflect on my past weekend with Zach. My love for him is beyond all experience. But this weekend I realized I've lost my emotional attachment to him, and he feels the same way. When I got home I cried. I need to let him go, for my sake and for his. I love you forever. I hope to keep a simple relationship with you. (How I felt this weekend). Goodbye my love. ♥. - Your bulvarian sugar cookie.
2 May 2022. I've recently been caught up in my Job, alcoholism, and just not living in the moment and being healthy like I used to be. While walking the labyrinth I was more present. I forgot my problems and noticed the smell of pine, an interesting lizard, the sound of the wind and wind chime, cars in the distance. I should come out more now that the weather is warm. Grateful for this moment. ♥
4 May 2022. So difficult to clear my mind, but a beautiful location in which to try doing so! It was wonderful to take a break surrounded by beauty, and to reflect on all I am thankful for.
13 May 2022. Today I came here with my boyfriend. our first activity being back together. I hope we share many more days together like this. The air, the clouds & trees , the sun, the breeze, the warmth, everything.
15 May 2022. Today was great. I f* love everything right now and I am so grateful. ♥ - Kayra.
15 May 2022. Today was a great day. I bowed to a rock. I've never bowed to a person, but I bowed to a f* rock! I respect that rock!
24 May 2022. when bad things happen to you it is OK to to let yourself cry and deal with it in your own way as long as your remember that you are loved and strong and you can get through it even stronger.
24 May 2022. Sometimes I forget that outside of my room there is a world of mystery and beauty. Moments where I find peace, moment when you feel love and a quiet happiness in just being alive. I am grateful I am alive and I am lucky to share what it means to live.
25 May 2022. Magic and wonder are always here. Do not doubt it. Beautiful synchronicities all around us. Enjoy. Slo-o-o-w down... I am ok ♥ 222
25 May 2022 . Here with my sister and there is no one else I'd rather be here with. Grateful for the time an experiences we have together.
There's nowhere to go because there's nobody to go there. (This is "fake deep")
29 May 2022. Briana, Andrew, and Phineas. My boyfriend isn't very spiritual but he says he feels at ease here and that really means this place is a place of healing.
There's nowhere to go because there's nobody to go there. (This is "fake deep")
1 June 2022. For the last 50 years I do long trail runs 3 times a week, typically 5-7 miles per run. On the Sinclair Wash Trail and AZ Trail since 2006. For the last 2 or 3 years, about 10-20 minutes into my run, I look at nature and blurt out loud "I love you." I get the same feeling here.
2 June 2022. Today was a late start. We had amazing pancakes, Sadie was obnoxious but cute as always. The labyrinth was decent but could have been more traps.
4 June 2022. So on the trip I saw lizards and a letter. So I got so scared I thought Itaxp was a dead bear and I cried. I like the maze. It was a fund tip. I enjoyed finding tree houses and watching my kids get scared. Fun adventure, PS. Hello yellow butterfly following us along. I see you mom and hear you. xoxo. MS HS LS MD RD
5 June 2022. Lovely plants, bird song and lots of lizard today. To to break away and walk with intention after too much work. I though of work but able to come back to the present through my walk.
6 June 2022. GAAP was here!!
23 June 2022. Love lives by no definition, make your own. Your people will come and go - the right ones will stay. Even so, live in your own. You are supported, you are see - even in the reflection of the gentle breeze. Everything is yours, take the time to listen and you will be heard. All the love, Ava, Andi, Nate. ♥
24 June 2022. On a day when the Supreme Court made a devastating decision, there is little solace in reality. But nature provides reflection. For all people affected by this decision, I am sorry. I believe in the anger, strength, and love we have to continue through. - Rachel L.
Longest shurest day... trust in the universe, everything will work how it is supposed to.
3 July 2022. Mind centering, reflecting on family. It was nice, when it is the end/centers always somewhere to keep going hmmm ump brmmm ump hmmm. Thank you for the beauty you have created. For the work - effort, time, expense. Beautiful way to connect to nature and our center - our superior being. I loved doing this and learning about it. I love the peace.
10 July. July in Flag. Taking time to reflect on the journey this place brings me. Taking the time to be okay and with all good and bad. To make some life-changing changes!
13 July. It was nice. Ian, Noah, Isaac.
