On this earthly physical plane of existence most people struggle to reach the top of the mountain. Their personal ambitions and desires shrouded in pride, and self-awareness drive them ever forward.
They are intensely focused on getting to that door at the top of the mountain where they believe they will have arrived and finally fulfill their purpose for themselves and are satisfied.
No one else matter’s in this personal journey to self fulfilled glory. People get there by using other people for their own benefits.
Their climb to the top becomes increasingly harder, because the weight of those whom they have left behind clings to their dead hearts like anchors.
Finally their journey to the top of the mountain ends. They have arrived and stand before the door. They are close enough to reach out and touch the handle to open the door at the top of the mountain. Their focus has been so intense, so self-serving that they do not see a small sign just above the door.
So they eagerly reach out and grasp the handle to open the door to the fulfillment of their desires. The handle is painful to their touch…it’s so very hot! But they are consumed with their desire so they bear the pain and open the door.
Standing in the open doorway they see a light off in the distance, yet they seem to be standing in shadows. As they look out into the distance a faint path emerges that leads to the light. But as they look down they cannot see the place to put their foot on the path so they can follow it to the Kingdom of Light.
So they look up and see the little sign. It says…“If you had seeked me with all your heart, mind and soul you would have found me. You have lived your life in darkness yet you have seen a great light and now it is appointed to man once to die, and then the judgment”.
Just under the sign is a pull chain attached to a light bulb. Still not understanding the message they reach up and pull the chain that’s attached to the light bulb expecting the light to come on and illumine their path, but instead they turn ON the Darkness. They finally have arrived at the place they personally have chosen to spend eternity.
