The Path To Heaven. Short Story. For Reflection

The child looked at the sky as trying to understand its meaning, dimension, depth. He had heard some stories, some happy and others sad. The happy ones said that the inhabitants of heaven were always joyful, as if the celebration would last forever. But he had also heard that heaven is the place where men finally go and that there are regions of peace and brotherhood but also regions of great silence and abandonment.  And the child, becoming enthusiastic wanted to ask and in fact, he did, but a clear answer he did not hear. And then, moving away from the noise around him, he came to a cliff and from there he could contemplate the sea and in an instant he discovered that far away, in the horizon, sea and sky would mix as becoming only one.

And the child thought : "If I had even a small boat, then, maybe by traveling the sea I would find the path to heaven. I want to travel the high seas to become a sailor and to find in that blue the secret of heaven. Maybe this is only a dream, maybe I will not be able to come back. If heaven is as beautiful as they say, maybe that is why no one wants to come back, but I will try." The days and nights  passed; the child became man but his dreams and illusions were still young as the first day; and the time came when he got a ship and he started traveling . "Where are you going ?" friends and family would ask. And his happy answer was :" I am going to find a secret, I promise to come back with something more valuable than a pearl from the sea. because I am going to bring a pearl from heaven; I am going to surrender to the horizon, to touch the doors of the infinite and then, I will know what is behind that blue, whether is happiness or fantasy.

 I promise that I will reach my destiny, I will reveal the path, I will know in truth what's in that eternity. And that young man went to the sea and among waves and wind, he searched and searched until almost with no breath left, lost in the horizon, he found himself at the doors of heaven. And a voice said: What are you looking for? This is not your time, neither your place yet, go back to the sea and to the earth where you came from. I know very well that you want to know if there was happiness here and why the ones who left never go back to earth. And for your dedication and effort I will reveal you a secret: This is the region of eternal peace, and the doors are open to the ones who deserve to enter but there is a sacred clock which is time, that can never be moved forward or backwards. You, as everyone else have your place here, but at this time, you only need to know that you don't need to travel for any other path which is not your own original path.

Don't force your destiny since the supreme embrace always comes giving place to the eternal dwelling which is called heaven and only the ones who have a just and noble heart reach its highest summit. If not, there are other regions of sadness, melancholy and loneliness. If you truly want to reach what's highest and best, don't rush trying to arrive, but instead live always in your present because this is always the first step to eternity. And then he felt as picked up by gigantic hands that would take him from that heavenly region to its white shores with sand that seemed as snow. And there he was left to rest and to recuperate from his long journey. And that young man could at last understand that heaven is the region of eternal compassion. And in this way, we end this journey with this reflection:

 "Live each day of your life with Love in your heart since when the time comes and heaven can reveal what nobody can give you, it will be because of the Love that you have given, and then you will receive peace in heaven for all eternity"
