The threshold

The threshold: a point of beginning or an entry way.
Some of the spiritual implications of the threshold are captured here in these powerful photographs.
What thresholds have you chosen to cross or not cross in your lifetime?
How is a doorway a path to a new beginning? In what way can it also be a path of no return?

May all of your crossings bring you renewed joy, excitement and purpose. May the fear of crossing new thresholds fade away, leaving only intrepid impulse.

  1. Incredible, amazing and poignant!

    The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
    Don’t go back to sleep.
    You must ask for what you really want.
    Don’t go back to sleep.
    People are going back and forth across
    the door sill where two
    worlds touch.
    The door is round and open.
    Don’t go back to sleep.
    Do you listen to that which the breeze tries to tell you?
    What do you want and are you asking for it?
    Is your heart open? Is your mind open? Is your life open?
    Rumi

    Hope everyone enjoys this post I did nearly three years ago. Very interesting to see how I feel about thresholds today, versus to how I felt about them when I posted this. I do see doorways from a different perspective, having worked a year on a book that I hope will open new doors, and thereby, new horizons,.
    HAPPY BLOGGING TO ALL
    *** will you share a post from your first year of blogging?

    • Thanks,
      So does your name post.
      I’m surprised by how many people have never bothered to look up the meanings of their names. Last and first.
      As if their origin and story is not interesting. Or shouldn’t be known about.
      Happy to know we are curious as cats about such matters. I think asking questions and getting answers is a great personality trait!! We share.
      Hugs,
      O and om 🐱

  5. Btw, I was there… at Angkor Wat… (one of the doorways) I love that your post reminded me. I have many photographs that need to be scanned and uploaded, old negatives that need to be treated with the proper care they deserve.
