Doors to the Way Out
This door opens to the birth of confusion and the reality of loss.
This door opens to the road to certainty
and to the certainty of contradiction.
This door opens to the pain of chaos and the truth of vulnerability.
This door opens to the mystery of love not fathomed,
and love unrecognized.
This door opens to the experience of nowhere,
and the reality of somewhere.
This door opens to the pain of too much and to the welcoming of empty.
This fear leads to our shadow, only seen because there is Light.
This door opens to exquisite sanity and sweet compassion.
This door leads to the path of consolation and the mystery of Grace known.
This path leads to humility and the magnificence of realization.
And this road leads to the Heart.
