What if there was a place here on earth that is blissful, peaceful and filled with love, a place where the spirit is fulfilled and from whence it is reluctant to leave? I believe there is such a place, but it is impossible to get there and to find it alone. It takes teamwork to get there and teamwork to stay for long. I almost found it and I’m trying to write about it, but I can’t do it alone.
I saw a place here on earth. We all think of heaven as a place to go once you’re gone, but there is a place here I saw, and I want to tell you about it. A garden of Eden with a fountain of youth. A place filled with love and inalienable truth. Where the days last forever and the nights do too. It is what it is and you are what you are. The irony of this story is this place is not that far.
I can go there and you can too. But the way to get there requires us to drop some baggage to lighten our load. There are some things better left in the past. You are not alone. Drop the facades, the false pretenses, the trauma and all of the preconceived notions. You can’t find it without my help and I can’t get there without your help. I have to join with another in prayer to get us there. We were all made in God’s image. He is within us. We find Him when we find our true and authentic selves.
It is a world of virtual reality. In the deep recesses of our minds lives a spark of spiritual grandeur ready to ignite and catch fire, ready to explode and satisfy our every desire. We need a password to enter and I forgot mine. It’s a secret place, but I can take you there. I saw the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. I know I’m not making much sense. It’s hard to explain the inexplicable. It has to do with feelings. Feeling good. Feeling pleasure. Feeling bliss. Feeling blessed. You know the feeling. You felt it before and now it’s time to feel it again.
It has something to do with our unmet childhood needs. It has something to do with the golden rule and the reset button we all get, the one that opens the door to a secret passageway that lets you feel your way in through the darkness to a warm and brighter day. We can go there together, but it takes teamwork. We have to work together toward this worthy ideal.
I forgot my password, but I can get it back. If only I can remember the answers to my security questions. Yes, my mother’s maiden name. Got that. The name of my first pet. I remember. The city I was born in. Easy peasy. And then they asked me about my first love, my true love, the woman of my dreams. Why did your name pop up? Why did you come into my life? Was it for a tease, to momentarily show me beauty and delight only to fade away and disappear in the dark of the night? Feelings. You felt like my savior, my redeemer, like an answer to my prayers. You gave me so much. You took me there. You were the wind beneath my wings. Now I want to go there again. I want to find it again. The mystery is revealed and unravels in your snippet of spiritual love.
When I see you, I’m reminded of when I saw you on that heavenly day, when I saw you differently, in your own special way. I felt alive! I swear I saw the image of God in you. I felt it. My blood curdles and my heart skips a beat every time I think about it. It was real. It was surreal. I can feel it again in my world today. It’s all about the emotional triggers fueled by authenticity. Revealed in the short description of a time of joy in my life is a schematic of triggers that bring joy and delight. The feelings you get when those intimate buttons are pushed are important to identify and catalog along the path on this journey to find heaven on earth. The triggers are key, the ingredient in the secret sauce that creates a unique flavor we both can savor.
Do you want to go there? Reveal the triggers. Do you want to find the good feelings you miss from your heavenly bliss? Push the buttons. You’re special. I’m special. You can do it if you set your mind to it. So start. Name the feeling your felt when you stood at the door, when you were whisked away in pleasure, when you longed for more and more. You can get it again. You can go there again. And now there’s only one simple question for you to answer.
Sharing yourself completely brings a whole new level of gratification into your life. What are you feeling, right here, right now?
