There are times in our lives when we have significant moments. They can be moments of understanding and realisation, moments of appreciation or moments of Love.
Life is made up of moments and within that moment we can feel Truth, like a drop of gold from God.
Today I could feel that I had been given a precious treasure: it was a moment of deep appreciation – mixed with tears of sadness – for what I had been given that felt amazing and yet was something I had chosen to ignore for some time. This moment got me pondering…
What if we all have a pot of gold, from the moment we are born?
Everyone… no matter where you come from, your culture, race or how wealthy or poor you are. What if we all have this treasure, no matter what?
When I have realisations of Truth, it is like another drop of gold that adds to the pot and depending on how much you value that pot, it can be full to the brim and can shine brightly or it can be ignored, undervalued, dulled and tarnished. We can even try to give it away. Sometimes we don’t want to see the pot at all and rather it not be there because we are too stuck in our minds or looking the other way, focussed on what we could have had, or haven’t had, or should have.
All the while the pot is there and yet we are focussed on everything else but that gleaming treasure that’s right in front of our eyes.
So what is going on?
We can see the pot, we know it’s there, but we don’t treasure it? Or we deny it’s there and look away, focussing on something else to distract us away from that Gold? What does that treasure mean for us? How much do we value Truth?
And then when that pot starts to fill and shine brightly, what then?
…Do we say that’s enough or do we keep going until it is overflowing and inspires others to do the same with theirs?
We often live our lives seeing the ‘wrong’ or the ‘bad’ or the ‘what needs to be fixed’, but all the while we miss out on the Truth that’s right there in front of us. A Gift from Heaven. So why do we choose to ignore such a precious Gift?
When we start to fill our pot, life starts to change. We shine more brightly, we know Truth abundantly and have great access to it. But there is something else…
With each drop of Gold, comes Responsibility.
Responsibility to live that Truth. To be the custodian of Truth. To uphold the Truth, even if people do not see or value their own Gold at that moment.
And the more Gold you have access to, the more Responsibility that comes with it.
Could it be that this is what we have been avoiding all along? Responsibility for the Gold we already have, and have always had.
