you're walking down a long hall and come across three doors.
The first door is large, beautiful, shining with golden light, and ornately decorated. It immediately catches your eye, so you walk up to it and put your hand on the door knob, knowing that something amazing is behind it. But when you turn the knob, it doesn't open. The door's locked and there's no key.
This represents the past.
The next door you come across is made of hardy oak and is slightly open. "Oh good!" you think, hoping you'll be able to get through this one. When you get closer, you take a peek through the crack and see a beautiful garden, blue skies, the things your dreams are made of. But when you try to open the door to get to the other side, it won't budge. It's too heavy and you're not strong enough.
This represents the future.
Finally, you come to the third door and the last in the long hallway. This door isn't as grand as the other two. In fact, it's just a screen door with nothing special about it. Except that when you get closer, you don't even have to touch it - it just flies open! A gust of wind blows through your hair and sunshine lights up your skin. You walk into the sunlight and bubbles float all around you. You notice that each bubble has a tiny piece of paper enclosed. You reach out your hands and a bubble lands and pops, leaving the tiny note crumpled in your palms.
You unfold the note and read, "Now is the time."
This represents the present.
Step into it.
