Doorways hold a certain mystique, an invitation to venture through, to explore. If it's a door in a wall, there may be no other choice but to move forward. A doorway that stands alone will make you think.
The arcaded passage at the Temple of Angkor Wat represents a journey in life or time. It is straight and narrow. You can't see what is at the end of the tunnel of doorways, as is usually the case. It's the unknown. A path of discovery.
It is an open door. It is a choice.

The way out of the killing fields led to safety and freedom, and an escape from enemies.
Standing at the threshold of the doors and looking in from the outside, you may see obstacles or infinite opportunity. Or you might just see a doorway like any other that we come across in our lives. Or a piece of art?
Throughout history, doorways have symbolized such things as a portal out of the earthly realm, a crossing between two worlds or another level of consciousness.
Let the doorways represent a gateway to peace. Dare to make an entrance.
"I can only show you the door. You're the one that has to walk through it." ~Morpheus in the Matrix.
