Open doors

That we are here is a huge affirmation; somehow life needed is and wanted us to be. To sense and trust this primeval acceptance can open a vast spring of trust within the heart. It can free us into a natural courage which casts out fear and opens up our lives to become voyages of discovery, creativity and compassion.*
(John O’Donohue)

We talk about risk like it’s a bad thing. But all forward motion involves risk. You can’t find a risk-free way to accomplish much of anything.**
(Seth Godin)

the door is open and
we need only pass through –
our humility, gratitude and faithfulness making this possible.

to know who we are, what we have
and to find small ways of expressing these means
we are more than enough

the open door is our calling

That’s how you’re going to fix the world – with your own gifts and talents.^
