Knock, knock, knocking on heaven’s door
I’m going to make a huge assumptions when I say that we all want to live a happy, fulfilled life and be immersed in love and acceptance. Yet, maybe it’s the truth – life and love connection is our goal, it’s our heaven on earth.
That is why each NYE we set resolutions, it’s why we look at people who have what we crave and try to uncover their secrets for ourselves. On a more practical level, we may search the web for posts that summarise our soul craving into a couple of simple steps: “5 steps to happiness” or “Fool proof way to love yourself”.
We all want a life of heaven right here on earth, in harmony with our hearts, connected to our inner passions and to those whom we wish to share our lives with.
Yet time and time again something happens and instead of taking the higher road of connection we self-sabotage, tripped out by our ego (yucky mind talk). We hope that no one noticed our slip up, and even deny it to ourselves. So instead of knocking on heaven’s door we pretend that it doesn’t exist and we never wanted it anyway.
But what if …
Instead of curling up in a world of failure, or heading into the deep forest of self denial or even turning to the internet to dig up those “5ways to” steps…
What if instead …
We all chose to be brave and speak out our truth, without judgement, without analysing how silly it would sound to other people.
Choose bravery and truth.
Be loud and proud to state that you really do know what is best for you, but once again you have been tripped up by your ego, your mind, your sense of worth.
What’s the worst thing that would happen if you owned your wonderful humanity and spoke your truth, told people about your perfect imperfection?
Would saying out loud that you really want joy but continue to settle for contentment or even sadness be the end of your world?
Or could it be your beginning?
Truth and courage, no matter how silly they might seem, are the key to opening heaven’s door.
Do you want to be standing and knocking at heaven’s door feeling unworthy, wondering why no one is letting you in? Or do you want to be in heaven every single day living in connection, joy and love?
The only way to heaven is trough truth and courage; acknowledging our mind talk, embracing our humanity and stating our truth loud and proud. Because it’s only by being honest, courageous and vocal that we will find our support network, we will have the conversations that will warm our hearts, we will meet those people who will offer us a helping hand.
Do you know why this kind of magic happens?
Because we are all humans and all have the same issues of self acceptance and the craving for love. It’s only that our issues have a different coating, but on the inside we are all the same.
Remove the coating by bravely speaking your truth and you will find yourself in heaven… connected to life, love and joy and no longer knocking on any doors.
