Your Heart, Your Home.

Your heart is just like your home, it depends on you to make your home comfortable and decent to live in. You wouldn't want dirt littering everywhere. You are a gatekeeper,guard your heart.

Peeping through the window, whispers to the others seem like no one is at home. Are you sure? Please check well and verify again. I just did not; it is unlike the gatekeeper to leave the house unguarded. Exactly my point! He has always been steadfast in his job. So what happened? Well, it is his loss; let’s invade his home before he returns. They all walked quickly and quietly into his bedroom. You know what to do, right? Yes, we do. Each person faced the wall and started writing; negative words, discouraging words, evil words. Others messed up the room littering first everywhere, making the room extremely dirty.

Kudos! You all did a great job. We can take our leave now. Walked out smartly, straight to the window to hide. Why is the door opened? The door was locked now. I made sure to lock the door. Still surprised, looks out to see if someone was there but couldn’t find anyone. This is weird. Enters the house; this is the time he makes sure to lock the door. Walks tiredly towards his bedroom; I need to take my bath. Water droplets could be heard, but no one was at home, which became he was all alone. Still thinks about the incident. Hmmm, it’s nothing; he shakes his head; probably I am just overreacting. Reaches out for the towel and sees dirt everywhere. OMG!! What are all these in my room? How did these get here? Sits on the bed frustrated; no one is here to answer. With anger in his heart, he kicked the chair in front of him.

Ouch! My leg immediately the brain had sent the response of the action he carried out through the effectors. Held his leg in pain. What is happening? Confused the more, he turns and beholds what he sees? Stupid written body on the wall. “am I really stupid?” “am I?” not just stupid, confused, angry, frustrated, lonely, bored, jobless, hopeless… how did I get here? Our planned work, singing, and dancing happily. Now we can go in and complete the job. He has made room for us through his thoughts. Through his thoughts, he has invited us. Let’s go! Walking majestically, where do we start from? Let’s get in first! You, stay at the door. Points to the wall, stay there! Walks straight to the gatekeeper and sits close to him.

See how miserable your life is, not just miserable but useless. I hope you do see how useless and lonely you are. My face! What is that sound? Ahh! My face, who slapped me? Turns around, only to find no one. Who do I run to? Have you forgotten you have no one to help you? Can’t you even secure a job? No children, who will want to help someone like you? Better come back to reality; you are helpless! Am I helpless? Couldn’t understand what he was doing on the dirty floor; before he knew it, he saw water on the floor. Was he crying? He wasn’t this way. Laughed at him, mocking him; this is just the beginning; have you forgotten, you invited us, and it all happened due to your carelessness.

Sir, there is someone at the door. Who could that be? I didn’t invite anyone or tell anyone about the mission. Do not allow anyone in, yes, sir! You can do this, I don’t need to be in there with you, so can you reflect on what you did last? I am here to help you, but you need to do this to help yourself. I remember when I came into the house, the gate was open, but I couldn’t remember if I had closed the door before going out. What is happening? Why can’t I hear anything? Boss, we don’t know either. Something was wrong, almost close to him, but he couldn’t explain the force that dragged him back.

I recall that I didn’t close the gate. I was In a hurry to get something, but unfortunately, I didn’t get it either. What a pity you left your duty post just to chase shadows, thinking it’s reality. When you do your job faithfully, you will get all that you need. It will come to you without you going through this pain. You are on your way to losing your sanity. This has led to so many depressions, suicide, and death. Your responsibility as a gatekeeper is to guard your heart with all diligence. It will save you from any form of dirt. You will enjoy peace, have a sound mind, and be free from fear and its manipulation.

Now! Clear away this dirt with my blood. The blood that speaks better things than that of Abel. Remember your responsibility as a gatekeeper. Guard your heart, do not relent as it is for your good. ” I have decided to show you mercy, do not take it for granted. You are a gatekeeper; guard your heart.”
