The labyrinth at Krotona is a meander that presents a single undivided path, following the seven-circuit Cretan pattern. No choices are needed other than traveling onward through the winding pattern to an assured goal.
The seven circuits of the Cretan labyrinth correspond with the seven spheres of the sacred planets, the seven principles of the human being and the cosmos, the seven days of the week, and other such sevenfold meanings. The winding pattern of the labyrinth also represents the circulation of vital energies within our bodies.
Passing to the center of the labyrinth and returning to its circumference represents the involution and evolution of the universe, the coming into birth and the passing out of earthly life of an individual, and most importantly, a journey into the center of our own being, the achievement there of a quest for wholeness, and the subsequent return to our divine source.
In the labyrinth, as in life, there is no single right way to follow the path.
