“O Clavis David” or “O Key of David” is the chant the church cries today.
This is less of a plea and more of a reminder from us to God that a promise was made, long ago, that from the house of the shepherd-king David another shepherd would come and unlock the doors of God’s reality, bringing heaven to earth…or at least starting the process.
We search constantly for the keys to unlock the universe: the Secret, the right prayer, the magical path.
I wonder, though, if really the key we need isn’t one to unlock the heavens, to unlock the universe for our own gain, but rather the right key to unlock our own selfish hearts…
Maybe we’ve misunderstood this message all along.
