ASBURY, NJ - For the 11th year, Unity Spiritual Center will celebrate World Labyrinth Day on May 6 in its own backyard.

At 1 p.m., everyone is welcome to "Walk as One at 1" for the good of all. The church is located at 453 Bellwood Ave. here.

“Walking the labyrinth is a form of meditation, and just as the path of the labyrinth moves us closer to the center of the labyrinth, walking the labyrinth brings us closer to our own center,” said the Rev. Carmela Vuoso-Murphy. “We move through the external distractions and difficulties of life, to the center within, where we commune with God and find peace. When faced with a difficulty, I have walked the labyrinth in prayer and mediation, and have found peace and guidance in the center.”

Labyrinths have appeared on every continent and in every culture for more than 3,500 years. They have been used for prayer, religious rituals and symbolic pilgrimages.

People are discovering the benefits of walking a labyrinth for stress reduction, problem solving, grounding oneself, working through grief, healing, accessing intuitive guidance, letting go of anxious thoughts and worries, and communing with the Divine.

A labyrinth is not a maze; there is only one path inward that always leads to the center. It may have twists and turns, and it may appear sometimes that we are moving away from the center, but the labyrinth represents the spiritual Truth - that we are always on the path to God.

The Psychology Behind My Vote for Peter Jacob

To the editor:

Maslow's hierarchy of needs is a motivational theory in psychology comprising a five-tier model of human needs. Maslow stated that our most basic need is for physical survival, and this will be the first thing that motivates our behavior. Once that level is fulfilled the next level up is what motivates us, and so on.

Peter Jacob, Clear Choice for CD7

To the editor,

In the fall of 2016, I was driving down Main Street in Flanders. As I always do before an election, I was conferring with my sister about the available choices for voting on my way to the polls. The last thing I said before I hung up, “You are going to want to make sure you check out Peter Jacob.” He is a 30 year old social worker who works with the ...
