There Is No Back Door to Paradise - a Humble Offering to Chitrangada Sharan!
God dwells within me as My Self.— Sean Dragon
A Common Question
One of the most common questions my students ask me is this one:
"I don't want to spend my life living in vain! What should I do?"
My answer is always the same:
"Fill your Heart with Love until there is no room for anything else. Then, you not only will have a meaningful life, but you will also live it in Paradise!"
Memories of Paradise
When God, our Father, created us, He gave to each one of us a wonderful gift. He placed Paradise at the core of our existence, giving us the opportunity and blessing to live in it. But, unfortunately, we locked Paradise's door, and we threw the key away. Eventually, we have even forgotten its existence because we have been burying its memory under tons of material passions, selfishness and illusions since then.
Fortunately, however, there is a beautiful light still coming out of this Paradise. There are colours, fragrances and Angels' melodies, that transcend all this junk and reach our souls. Awakening memories of our origins and forcing us to look again for the door or some entrance. But as a result of our desperate need of going back and while we have learned to live in the easy way of minimal effort, we look for a back door to Paradise!
But there is no back door to Paradise. There is only one entrance, and the key we have thrown away, and we need to find again, is Love. Therefore, we have to walk the long way back to this Inner Entrance.
We cannot bring our wings into this earthly world. But we can spring them up again with a life which chooses Love in any decision.— Sean Dragon
Love Is the Key
Let us start by taking the first small steps, bringing back to our lives understanding, tolerance, mutual aid, respect, kindness, selfless giving. So, step by step, we will be able to achieve victory over selfishness which is the great obstacle in our way. Then we will hold the key in our hand again. Love will become the compass, the path and the key at the same time.
It will not be an easy path. No, the road will be long and difficult. But the good news is that Paradise will be forever within us, in the centre of our Heart, where the Creator of Love has placed it. It is the rightful inheritance of our Divine Soul. Therefore, we cannot lose it! We have only to make the first step and chose Love over everything else! Love will bring us back Home!
With Love as a compass, I am returning to my Home, to His embrace which is waiting for me.— Sean Dragon
