The doors are swung open. What we previously thought was too hard now becomes possible, even enjoyable. Even, a wonderful new life!
We are naturally afraid of the unknown, or of forces that may overpower us, or things that may go wrong. But equally we can face these fears, when we are sufficiently motivated to "do it anyway."

Our motivation may include success, power, pleasure, possession, control and so on. But the highest motivation is love, and that light will erase the shadows of fear and take us through all the world can throw at us.
We may find ourselves dwelling on such matters as our career paths and our vocational satisfaction, feeling trapped and unhappy yet afraid to break out and try something different. Take heart from Eleanor's words. We are stronger than we believe; however desperate circumstances may seem, there is a path forward whereby all things remain possible.
