THE DOOR THAT OPENS INWARDS
It takes one kind of strength to break down a door, and entirely another kind of strength, to sit patiently and wait for a door to open.
The reason patience has always been seen as a great virtue, is because the transformational doorway cannot be opened by any amount of force. Total surrender is the only key which can unlock this particular door.
Every journey through the unknown is challenging. If we are afraid of the unknown, the journey will seem much longer, and more perilous, than it really is.
If you want to travel by train, from Paris, to Venice, you would be required to travel through several long mountain tunnels. There is no light inside a mountain, but would you jump off the train just because it got dark outside?
Every journey, especially one through a mountain, requires us to have faith. "if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you" Matthew 17-20
Light consists of photons, and because light carries no electric charge, light can never directly interact with other light. Therefore, light cannot block other light, and so light cannot cast a shadow.
"When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change".
The metamorphosis of a caterpillar to a butterfly is living proof that it is possible to break the bonds which hold matter together, and then re-assemble them in a completely different order. and live to tell the tale.
How incredible is that?
"The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge, but imagination".
The tongue, is considered by many, to be the strongest muscle in our body. While I cannot deny the power of the spoken word, there is a greater muscle and it is the one which begins the process of ‘life’. The human heart.
When a human egg is activated, it explodes in slow motion. One cell divides into two, two into four, four into eight, and so on and so forth. The controlled explosion eventually results in the existence of a living being. The heart is the first organ to form. The song the heart plays, forms the rest of the body.
Every muscle in the body is a posterior attribute of the heart. The heart creates the tongue, so it must be the heart which regulates its use. A tongue can break a heart, but a strong heart cam silence any tongue.
An explosion in the outer world produces chaos; the consequences are almost impossible to predict with any accuracy. An explosion in the inner world produces a highly predictable result; with a very high degree of accuracy.
Every aspect of a human ‘being’ is meticulously, and impeccably engineered, to perform exactly as intended. Your heart is unique; there has never been one like it before, and there will never be one like it again. Your creator gave you a heartbeat no one else has, so you can leave an imprint that no one else can.
In the case of a human egg, the key which starts the engine is the male spermatozoa. In the case of the metamorphosis from caterpillar to butterfly, the key which triggers the deconstruction and dissolution of the former self, is still not entirely clear. What we do know for certain is that there can be no significant transformation without the complete deconstruction of the original form.
The transformational doorway opens inwards, and once the process begins, there is no stopping it, no turning back, and no half way house. It's literally all, or nothing.

God is waiting for you”
