Doors have been on my mind. This week I started a book by George Anderson. In the opening of the book, he mentions how life is like a series of doors or portals. We come into life through the portal of birth. We exit through the portal of death. In between, we are a met by a series of doors through which come people, influences from spirit, opportunities, challenges, etc. We are constantly moving from door to door as these portals align and bring us into contact with the experiences that make up our lives.
Sometimes, we feel like we are stuck in the hallway. There is that time when we’ve exited one door and another hasn’t opened. It’s hell in the hallway. I feel like I’ve been stuck in the hallway way too long. I keep reminding myself it’s not forever, even though it feels that way too often.
So, today on my walk, I look over to my left as I’m passing a neighbor’s driveway and I see this. A “free door”, just sitting there for the taking.
