Laura Bruno – “If There’s No Door, Then I’ll Make One!” – 26 January 2014

laura-of-the-rocksHiromu Arakawa: “If there’s no door, then I’ll make one!” I hear ya, sister and creator of Fullmetal Alchemist.

There have been times in my life when I’ve faced problems so tricky, so “impossible” that the only way out was in. Deeeeeep inside, through the inner rabbit hole, through the spiral and out the newly created portal. In those days, I’d paint a door, and you know what? It worked.

In ways known mostly to me, every single door that lines the walls and corners of our home, created the life I live and love. Carefully coded with Runes, mythology and symbols, these painted portals summoned unlikely realities into being when logic, prayer, and all my best Houdini efforts failed to free me from the chains of limitation.

Well, another door has presented itself for painting, along with another “impossible” situation that needs a way in and out the other side. This one’s more community based than personal, although it affects me as a member of this community. I can see that ordinary means will not resolve this dilemma, which would require undoing generations of programming and replacing those with feelings of overwhelming betrayal and a sense of sadness that people could knowingly try to do such things to one another. I see it; I wish to shift the path so that it leads to freedom instead of the intended trap, but I do not wish to inflict unnecessary pain.

Divine Doorway Number 17 will honor Elen of the Ways ~ the Reindeer Goddess who reactivates the ley lines and reminds us of the Ancient tracks. May painting this portal reveal the Middle Way:

 

Door 17

There Is a Way

The intellect says: “The six directions are limits: there is no way out.”
Love says: “There is a way. I have traveled it thousands of times.”
The intellect saw a market and started to haggle;
Love saw thousands of markets beyond that market.
