It is a sacred tool of prayer and meditation. It is something you can use for relaxation and reflection.
It looks really cool too.
Whenever I see something really awesome at a thrift store that I really don't need, I take a picture of it. I take it home. I look at it later to remember how cool it was and how much I really don't need it. When the nagging urge to go back and buy it anyway starts getting to me, I use my labyrinth to make that voice shut up.
I also like it for a nice little before bed relaxation. Helps to calm me down as I reflect on the fact that my air conditioner is broken.
