The Open Door – Danna Faulds Inspiration

A door opens. Maybe I’ve

been standing here shuffling

my weight from foot to foot

for decades, or maybe I only

knocked once. In truth, it

doesn’t matter. A door opens

and I walk through without a

backward glance. This is it,

then, one moment of truth in

a lifetime of truth; a choice

made, a path taken, the

gravitational pull of Spirit

too compelling to ignore any

longer. I am received by

something too vast to see.

it has roots in antiquity but

speaks clearly in the present

tense. “Be,” the vastness says.

“Be without adverbs, descriptions

or qualities. Be so alive that

awareness bares itself

uncloaked and unadorned.

Then go forth to give what you

alone can give, awake to love

and suffering, unburdened by

the weight of expectations.

Go forth to see and be seen,

blossoming, always blossoming

into your magnificence.”

~ Danna Faulds. From “From Root to Bloom – Yoga Poems and Other Writings”

Be alert to doorways and openings. After years of pausing and considering, it becomes the right thing. Follow the calling of your soul. I will meet you on the other side.
