What threshold do you stand on?

You cannot return to the past, the way it was. 

You want to move on.

You feel ready. 

You want to grow, explore.

You are bored. 

You have become complacent and a bit too comfortable. 

It makes you both nervous and excited. 

Some thresholds you do not choose but here you are. 

And you must now move on, somehow. 

You are on a threshold. 

Your threshold might be:

  • Graduation (high school, college, masters, PhD, other program)
  • Retirement 
  • Divorce
  • Death of a loved one
  • Marriage
  • Job change
  • Move to another part of the country 
  • Leave your church  
  • Chronic illness 
  • Empty Nest 
  • You fill in the ______

What will you do?

How do you move forward?

The first step is to acknowledge the threshold. 

Allow yourself to feel the vast array of emotions you might have. 

Here is when a Contemplative practice such as Centering Prayer might be helpful. 

Bring all of your thoughts and emotions to your silent sit. 

Then let them go and open to the presence and actions of God within. 

Let God and you together discern the way forward. 

Take it one day at a time. 

The silence of Centering Prayer is like a threshold.

It is a place in between the past and your future.

Centering Prayer is a nice place to rest and discern your path ahead. 

Let the silence of Centering Prayer spawn your next steps.

Let me know if I can help.
