We must let go of the things that would drag us back the way we had come, the things that would hinder us from passing through the gateway and prevent us from moving forward. This dying place generates a deep sense of loss, the loss of what was, of what was known. It is a place for grief and sadness.But the dying of liminality is a promise of new life, a promise of rebirth.

Liminal: A Dying Place
Being liminal is being in a dying space. There are some things that just cannot come with us onto the threshold. As we walk through the doorway and stand on the stoop waiting to enter the new place, some old stuff has to go away and die. It is in the liminal place where these things die.
