The Keys to Happiness

Like crickets in the night, Spirit is all around us and is in constant communication with us.  Its song guides us through the darkness and into our ‘field of dreams’, orchestrating its aria in response to our deepest desires; and when we follow its call, we live in grace with the movement of the moment and in alignment with our life’s purpose. 

The how of it rests within our heart.  Mother Sarita taught me that "we hold all the keys to happiness in our hands”.  Yes, and those keys are born of our heart’s desire.  Though we may have doubts and fears, as long as our heart yearns beyond that fear and continues to say ‘Yes!’ then those keys remain at the ready.

Of course Spirit can only offer us the keys and kindly show us the doorways, we alone must make the passage through them.  We can open the doors and we can close them, but all the while Spirit continues ever-present in its generosity.  

“What has God ever denied you?”, Sarita once asked me, and in spite of injustice’s itch to respond, the truth bubbled up from heart and answered “Nothing!”.  I realized that truly I had received everything I ever asked for — the good, the bad, and the ugly.  My life was a direct result of my desires, the keys born of them, and the doorways I chose to enter.

And so I ask you, what has God ever denied you?  

The keys are in your hands and the path to their doorways are at your feet.  The choice is yours.  In every step and in every heartbeat, you have an opportunity to choose again.  Why not start today?  

Connect to your heart’s desire, beyond your doubts and your fears, and listen for the crickets in the night.
