A Thought for Today...

The Gateway at Russborough House, Blessington, Ireland

Visualize yourself standing before a gateway on a hilltop. Your entire life lies out behind you and below. Before you step through the gateway, pause and review the past: The learning, the joys, the victories and the sorrows-everything it took to bring you here. Observe it all, bless it all, release it all. For it is in letting go of the past that you reclaim your power. Step through the gateway now.
 ~ Ralph Blum

   A perfect thought at the end of my threshold pilgrimage, don't you think?  I saw this quote ages ago and filed it away and when I saw this gateway at Russborough House it popped back into my mind....its time had come!

Here is a link to my second post on A Sacred Journey:

What a photo of a wonderfully symbolic threshold! A clear passageway into a new "reality" - a new way of being. I can feel it! Gave me goosebumps... Such a visual invitation is hard not to miss! :) And those clouds in Ireland are something else - so "expressive."

Yes, I love it when an idea and an image comes together, sometimes months apart. The skies in Ireland and Scotland change moment dark and threatening, another filled with shape shifting white clouds.
