G.S. (from Sunday Fellowship Small Group) quickly spoke up "You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave." from the Eagles song Hotel California. That song has had numerous interpretations and the writers have purposely been vague about it's origin other than the excesses of the music industry. Freely entering the pleasure dome ("This could be Heaven or this could be Hell") can result in an inability to leave it behind ("but you can never leave").
Inside locks (usually dead bolts) are designed for an individual to be able to leave - but requires action. But for every inside lock there is a outside perspective looking in. A person knocking at the door awaiting your response. But it takes a key (or action of unlocking) to open the door.
Find the key. Check out. You can leave. Heaven can't wait.
