"[I]ssues we avoid return, sometimes with different faces, but still, we are brought full circle to them, again and again. Regardless of how we may try to skip over or sidestep what we need to face, we humbly discover that no other threshold is possible until we use our courage to open the door before us. Perhaps the oldest working truth of self-discovery is that the only way out is through. That we are returned repeatedly to the same circumstance is not always a sign of avoidance, but can mean our work around a certain issue is not done." 
~Mark Nepo

Opening doors on the journey to Self can be an arduous task. The image that comes to my mind are big, heavy, wooden barriers with forged steel locks and hardware. Having to approach, unlock, open, and move through them is so important though, if we are passionate about change. When we make a choice to meet our issues head on, whether they are coming to us the first time or have been nagging for years, and we commit to making our way through them, we yield more Self knowledge. Another door has been opened.

As we enter the New Year, perhaps take some quiet time to recognize some of the doors in front of you. What themes and challenges keep recurring? Which big heavy locks haven't you been able to release or even be ready to approach until now? 

Of course, a "key" in all this involves acknowledging where you are on your journey. Reflecting on the thresholds you have already crossed and the change and growth brought upon by moving through them.... but, most importantly, being open to what's in front of you right now.

What doors will you open... what thresholds do you need to cross?
