closed doors

Whenever a door is closed to you, forget the idea that it was not meant to be, but instead think…..perhaps whatever is behind that door, is not yet ready for me to enter. Perhaps the people and places beyond that door ,are still readying themselves in preparation for me, and although it seems that I myself am ready to enter, perhaps I am not. Perhaps there is more growing to do, more wisdom to learn, before that door will budge in readiness for you. So be not dismayed and be not deterred from your dreams, for they remain steady and true. It may simply be a time and times perhaps, before the door will open, and in the meantime, you must ready yourself and prepare for the moment you cross the threshold. Beware of other doors that lure and tickle and draw your heart away from it’s purpose. Sometimes, it is not another door we should seek, but instead be preparing for the one door we know to be ours. Blessings….Karin

Artist's Description

I say this after seeing someone I love struggle for years, only to find that the door is now being opened…i believe the door opens when we are receptive, willing and able to embrace all the changes and demands that going through that door will entail, if the door seems closed, it is perhaps that either we, or what is behind that door…may not yet have reached the state of readiness required. In past, I had only ever known the idea, that if one door is closed another will open…however, it is only in hindsight one can see that perhaps there is a reason why a door has not yet opened. Even if we are ready, perhaps the circumstances/people behind that door are not yet ready for us. So it pays to be patient and not give up on our dreams too easily.
