Hi dear reader,
The doorbell rings. A challenge is standing in the doorway. Do I let it in? I light the lamp in the hallway, open the door and welcome the experience.
Did you ever notice that you enter into a different world, when going through a door? The door is always the beginning of a smaller or larger adventure. Therefore, the door has become such an important symbol.
Doors open in dreams, giving you access to a different reality. There are also doors in life. I recognize them in the language, such as ' the door to the future ', or ' I came at a closed door '. There are worlds full of experiences behind doors.
Sometimes, such a door is a narrow passage. In Alchemy it is called a bottle neck. This resembles suspiciously the current economic situation: captured in an event where the road to the door narrows into a kind of birth canal. As you get closer to the passage the pressure increases. You're being squeezed through it, as it were. That can be a scary experience.
Right before the bottle neck you find yourself in a crisis of trust; Do I take the right decision? Do I have confidence in the right people? Is the image that is portrayed to me correct? Behind which door is illusion, propaganda, truth? What door do I open, which one do I keep closed; and even not choosing is a choice!
The pressure increases in that narrow passage. Is there light at the other side of that door? And all of a sudden ... a sea of space and a birth in a world full of new challenges.
