The Symbolic Nature of Doors

doorwayThe simple doorway–an everyday object that goes unnoticed most of the time–is symbolic of a transition between one world and the next. Such a doorway may take different forms, as a dolmen, a torii (traditional Japanese gate), a gateway, but the meaning remains the same.  Both Heaven and Hell lie beyond a doorway, and the threshold of such a place is seen as the place where two worlds meet and sometimes collide. Many rituals involve the initiate stepping through a doorway of some kind.  The visica piscis (the intersection created by two overlapping circles) represents a doorway where the world of spirit enters the world of matter.

The spiritual meaning of a door denotes a passage of communication with the divine.  An open door signifies a message is coming through. A closed door can denote a break in communication.

A door is often depicted as a portal for the righteous to enter. Doors are also signs of deliverance.

Katherine Ann Moss
16 January, 1974

“Kate is human and divine; powerful and vulnerable; glamorous and earthy; Ophelia and Lady Macbeth.  And our feelings for her are contradictory, too. They are blameless: we love her.  They are impure: not to put too fine a point on it, but we would like to fuck her.”  ~ Alex Bilmes, Esquire online

“She’s the kind of girl you wished lived next door, but she’s never going to.”
~ David Bailey
