Walking Through HesitationJul 17, 2023
Why do you stay in prison when the door is so wide open?
Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
The entrance door to the sanctuary is inside you.
This door was from a small Cathedral Sanctuary outside of a town In Spain. I was walking the Camino de Frances. This place was about a mile off the Camino.... The Way. I was told about this place by another pilgrim and walked there with him. A storm rolled in later in the day and I ended up staying there for 2 nights. There were only about 6 pilgrims doing so, because most of the time you stay right along The Way.
This place ended up being one of the most shimmery places I stayed... The veil was very thin. I shared powerful conversations with both those seen and unseen. I was recognized and seen. Known.
All the other pilgrims and people I met there were men. Yet Mary, my constant companion on The Way was very present. The entire story is longer and I will share it another time.
For today, the dark of the moon, this message from Rumi came my way... And it returned me to this moment and this door. I took this photo early in the morning as I left, walking alone back to The Camino to continue on. Mary was at my back, this was her Sanctuary... It was a profound moment. As I walked over that threshold, with Mary watching, the words that flowed through my Heart:
'I Know Who-I-Am'
