When we live in fearless consciousness and an openness to the consistency of change, we will find ourselves often at the threshold of a new adventure. This figure, who is about to enter a portal, is acknowledging and honoring that a change is taking place. It is a brave act in that they do not know what lies ahead. In fact, it appears that there is a steep edge and nothing on the other side. This rite of passage, from what was to what will be, is taken in a act of faith. Even if there is nothing on the other side, there will be something that has not yet been imagined.
