Inner Sight👁

May 20, 2019

What do you see when you close your eyes?

I asked the Shaman, “show me Hell.”

I was taken to a room the color of mold…

No windows.

A steady-drip-drip

Of water fell from a hole; I couldn’t see

Any way out.

I asked the Shaman, “now please show me Heaven.”

And–in an instant–I was in my own backyard.

Inspired by conversations with fellow blogger:

Thank you, Sir for encouraging me to think.

  1. Aw, thanks for the shout out and I enjoyed the conversation, too 🙂 It’s true, we oft times search for heaven only to discover we’ve had it all along. Well said 🙂

  2. That’s true though. We can make hell and heaven on earth. It just depends on the effort we put in.
    Also, perspective plays a huge role… maybe if everyone was accepting the earth would be another version of heaven…

    1. Wouldn’t that be nice? Yes, our efforts and our perspective. That was my thought too. I could sit in Hell and do nothing-or I could be in my backyard—which takes a ton of work—and create heaven. My choice. Thanks for visiting 😊
