The Light in the Door (Prelude for the Okna)

There is a key that so many search for as if it has been hidden only for them to spend their life searching. But the reality is the key is there for everyone..only a few use it.

There is a door that so many see and wish for the key to unlock it, however in searching for the key, they forget to try the handle or just simply knock. If only they knock, it will open.

There is a window in the door that allows the light through for all to see. Some ignore the view, others put up a shade, and still others just peek with curiosity seeing what could be theirs if they open the door and venture in.

      What holds some back?

      What caused the freeze, the hesisitation, the lack of motivation?

       All they have to do is use the key they have always had.

       and when forgets they have a key, one is always provided...just knock and be welcomed.

            But they don't.

            They stare.

            They pause too long over their fears.

            There is a light that shines through.

            Tempting.

            Touching the heart.

            Telling us to move forward.

      And even with reassurance from the Heart, there is doubt.

Have No Doubt...this Door is for you.

Come in and you will see it has always been an open door. It will always be an open door.

      The key lives within you.

      The door is your fear.

      The light is the gift that awaits you.

Take it in, let out what isn't for you. You will know.  For the window is the key and you need not break glass to get in.

      This is not a drill.

      This is not a test.

      This is not an emergency.

      This is the Okna.

The Okna awaits to share some light for those most in need of God's mercy.

(This light...this light through the door's window is called the Okna.  The window is the key.)
