For living authentically and fully, we need to be quiet , clear and open to see and relate to the beauty and receive the blessings of life, to hear the silnce of sound. If I keep myself bound by the fear of the unkown I restrict my growth and development. If I keep myself bound by the self created threshold and refuse to go beyond the threshold, my life will be stagnant. I do not need to hide my face behind the veil. I need to remove the veil to see the beauty of the unknown. Fear of the unkown and reluctance and restanace to go beyond the known keeps me bound and stagnant.I nee to remove the veil to see the splendor and beauty shining right in front of me.
There have been times in my life when I was reluctant and hesistant to go beyond the known and familiar landscape. I felt this fear of the unknown when I came to this land called America. It was hard for me to go beyond the threshold to relate to the new and different world-different in climate, food, culture, and relgion.
What helped me go beyond the threshold is my curiosity, courage, open mindedeness and open heartedness. Whenever I am at a threshold and whenever I am reluctant to cross it, I gain my inner
strength by quieting and clearing up mind so that I can see the light to walk on the unkown and untraveled path. Life is a blessing if I keep my mind and heart open to receive it.
