ART: NANCY HOLT “SUN TUNNELS”

 

“Close your eyes and turn all the way around, slow-w-ly. Sense or feel the open door, the one that offers you ease, that welcomes you to a new homecoming.
“Walk up to this doorway, still with your eyes closed. Feel the grain of the threshold under your feet, the doorjamb beneath the palm of your hand. Feel the life pulsing on the other side, offering itself to you.
“When you’re ready, step through. Breathe this new air. Feel who you are, in this unknown, deeply familiar place. Feel how you stand, how your feet hold and are held by the ground here.
“Feel yourself welcomed, embraced, in all your beauty and timidity, your power and grace. Feel all this place holds for you and with you.
“Ask those questions that glow steadily in your heart.
“Here are the ones that arise to my lips in this liminal space.
“Why am I here?
“How do I truly love?
“What is yearning to be born?
“How do I serve now?
“How do I love my world now?
“Stay here for as long as you wish. When you feel complete, for now, ask this place for a talisman, a reminder that the door is open for you, that welcome and belonging await you there, as they do here.
“Turn around, and step back into the present moment, bringing the gifts of this place with you. Place your talisman on your altar, or in the altar of your heart. Kiss it, bless it, be blessed by it.
“Write a note, a promise to yourself, to your soul, to your world: This is what I will do to live where I’m being called, to live where I belong.
“Then, gather your allies and resources. Make a plan. Put it into motion. Begin today.”
