Pass through the portal
Go through the gate
Enter and be re-born.
That which is remembered never dies.
All things change....

Pass Through The Portal
(by Abbi Spinner McBride)
Audience Count: 27,592
It's interesting, the title of this piece is a directive to take action, when the way this piece came into being- well, it felt really passive to me. This chant, like some of my others, fell from the skies. It, like so many of my others, was inspired by an all night alchemical fire circle... but it started months earlier.
"Pass Through the Portal" began to come into being at MayFire 2011. We were marking a death in the family of fire, and in the midst of the tears, and the collective grief and sorrow... the beginnings of the lines "All things change, " and "That which is remembered never dies, " both began to come through.
It was as the next BoneDance, as I was contemplating the ritual structure of how and when to burn Katlyn Breene's portal structure, that we had the idea bringing the portal in, letting people pass through it, and then burning it...
That's exactly when the repeating phrase "pass through the portal, go through the gate, enter and be re-born" fell into place, and all three lines synced up and interwove around the Fire.
So I brought a few sparks back to share with you. Happy Samhain!
Recorded: Las Vegas, NV, at the House of Mystery
