27 Jun Front Doors: The Sacred Transition Of Our Inner And Outer Worlds
Front doors form a sacred passage between the pace and the chaos of the outside world, and the beautiful and sacred spaces inside.
The front door of your home marks the transition point between your outer and inner. It symbolizes the crossing over into your private space, your anchor, your sanctuary. It shifts one environment to the next – and you can use it to express yourself and share your essence with those who pass through it.
The outside world can be fast, intense, and demanding at the best of times. The rushing pace of modern life can be restless and sometimes even a little chaotic. Your front door is not just an archway, it marks the magical and beautiful entrance to your world.
Front Doors From Far Away Places
In every corner of this magical world of ours, individuals and cultures have used front doors to share their wonderful inner spaces and lives with us. We need not even enter to understand deeply the souls that dwell on the other side. All we need to do is use our senses to connect and feel their spirit, their creative selves, their hopes and dreams.
What does your door say about you? Is it bold and robust, does it speak of tranquility, or is it grand and elegant like the sacred space inside? Does it stand or whisper quietly to the world?
It is golden yellow like the sun, black like the shadows of the night, or sea-drenched with hues of emerald and jade? Is built from forged iron, or the strongest timber in the land?
Does the paint shine proudly and deeply in the warm afternoon light, or does it chip and fade, revealing the wisdom, experience and character within?
Does it dare make a sound when it opens, or do the hinges turn smoothly and silently as is it turns, offering rare access into what lies on the other side?
Every front door is a path to a new, unique and magical world. Where does each one lead? Have you ever stopped to admire them, taken a breath, and wondered what lies on the other side?
Take a journey to the other side
I want to take you outside your front door. I want to shake you like a tree and take you firmly by the hand. I want to show you the world and engulf your senses as you re-discover your own connection with colour once again.
