     I appreciate Sam Keen's essay.  A threshold moment is a crossover moment, a moment of transformation.  It's the point when the water reaches 212 degrees and transforms to steam, or when the caterpillar breaks through the cocoon and emerges a butterfly.  The threshold moment is the moment of entering a new reality.  Moving around during a group therapy, I was tiptoeing and someone asked me, "Do you tiptoe through all of life?"  That was a moment of awakening for me, an aha moment, a threshold moment.  My taking in a therapists's words that I have a right to be powerful was a threshold moment for me.  What helped me open up to the immense mystery was feeling safe, seen and encouraged, and once I had a personal threshold moment, I wanted more.  The first one was the critical one.  They're addicting.
