Liminal spaces

From the Latin word limens, meaning threshold, liminal spaces are the ones in between, the blurry crossing points that are neither here nor there.

“It is when you have left behind the tried and true, but have not yet been able to replace it with anything else. It is when you are between your old comfort zone and any possible new answer. If you are not trained in how to hold anxiety, how to live with ambiguity, how to entrust and wait, you will run… anything to flee this terrible cloud of unknowing.” ~ Richard Rohr

What do you know about holding anxiety? Think of time when you had to be with ambiguity and trust some unfolding process. How did you manage that? How do you know when you’re just running away? What of your skills or memories or secret hidden selves could you call to your aid in this time of being in between where you have been and where you are going?
