The Keys to the Kingdom
“The kingdom of heaven is within.” Jesus
The storms of life will come and go. Of that we may be certain. A wise person does not just hope for the luck of the draw. He or she does not live in fear of the storm, but instead prepares to meet it when it comes.
There are a few simple spiritual truths that can help us weather the ups and downs of life. They are neither esoteric nor complicated. We would do well to understand these truths and to pass our understanding on to our children. There may come a time when one of these simple truths and the practice that goes with it may save our life or the life of someone we love.
It is no mystery that the secret of life is to learn to love and honor you. If you can do that, you can also learn to love and
honor others. You can find your true gifts and passion in life. You can stop betraying yourself and giving your power away.
You can live a creative, graceful and purposeful life. The practices in this Course will help you to do this. I have made them simple and clear so that you can use them right away.
You will work on each of the eight Keys for one week. Ask the transformation question associated with the Key as often as possible, but especially when you feel triggered or confused. Put that simple truth to work in your life and you will begin to see results. If you want to work more deeply you can spend a whole month on each key.
After you have completed all of the keys, continue to use the Keys in your life, asking the transformational questions whenever they are relevant. The Eight Keys give you all the information that you need to know to be happy and at peace with yourself and others. Your only job will be to keep practicing what you know.
When the heart heals, the world heals with it. This Course is designed to be a practical tool that you can put to work in your life. Take the keys with you wherever you go. Use them as often as you can. They will help you to transform your experience. Fear will drop away and unconditional love will shine through. As you awaken to who you are, so will the people around you.
A fearful world cannot exist for a loving heart. Love changes everything. That is why this works. Do your part and you will see for yourself.
I wish you many blessings.
