Life is Gold

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.

  1. Having experienced this recently
    “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.”
    I feel we as human-beings are so selfish, only thinking of ourselves and not the grander offering of what has been and is constantly presented.

  2. So true, we do not appreciate what we have within, who we are, where we are from and what we are made of. We spend far more time considering how we can better ourselves, apoligise for ourselves and quite simply make up for all the things we never get round to. Time to step off that treadmill and simply make space to appreciate who we are and what we offer so we can step into the responsibility of not holding that back.

  3. I can’t help but feel that the inner gold is a treasure that belongs to all equally, and if that’s correct then we have a responsibility to make sure it is available from within us for everyone.

  4. “To be the custodian of Truth.” We are custodians of so much, love, harmony, beauty, sacredness, delicateness, stillness, cuteness – all things that are the truth of who we all are. What wonderful mirrors we can be for each other.

  5. It’s quite crazy really, that we go searching for our ‘pot of gold’ in whatever form we believe it should be in, while all the time it sits within us waiting for us to remember this truth. In fact, this pot of gold is not only within us, but all around us, a fact that we are continually being reminded of by the divine messages delivered to us in every moment by God. Maybe that’s because we are living in God’s pot of gold.

  6. Simple but gorgeous blog. I needed to read this ‘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?’ Thanks.

  7. Susan, this is so true; ‘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?’ I can feel that it is easy to focus on the negative – rather than our loveliness and our qualities and making this the focus.

  8. Ignoring the pot of gold is like ignoring the elephant in the room and yet we have all agreed to ignore it; if you do I will sort of thing. What a waste all because we do not want to take responsibility and the steps back towards our true self. Then when someone does break the agreement they get set upon to bring them back in line.

  9. This is a beautiful confirmation of who we are as in truth we are in essence all gold and the light of Heaven shines through our every movement whenever we live in connection to our Soul. Agreed that such is our responsibility to live the truth of who we are as when we do, we reflect the harmony and power of Brotherhood as is our innate way of being.

  10. This game of hiding and tarnishing the gold is how we fill up our time, and we start calling that a life. But a true life, a living of the Livingness, is a much more fun way to fill the space so that we have access to even more space.

  11. ‘Life is made up of moments and within that moment we can feel Truth,…’ – meaning that there is not just truth (gold) but the absence or opposite of it, symbolically the lead. This gives reason to contemplate on how the lead comes into being and circulates as a common commodity whereby the gold needs to be dug for with the tools of awareness. First, we taint the truth, actually life as a whole, then we need to purify and restore it from the comfort (ignorance of truth) we have invested in. At some point we need to make a choice as playing with lead and then missing the gold is a game that only works for so long before we dig our own graves.

    1. Alexander I love how you have expanded and summarised what is going on here it is so true and quite crazy that we literally currently spend most of our time avoiding, fighting or denying truth.

  12. We are so good at emphasising on the 20% that is not so well and in that to ignore the 80% that is going very well.

    1. It may be that because we focus on the negative it seems much bigger than it is, it may be in fact 1%, and we don’t realise how big the beauty is either.

  13. But what is wrong with responsibility? We have made it something that is solely to our account and to which we can be called upon, or even get justified about. But what if the responsibility that this blog speaks about is from a completely different order, that this responsibility is on the energetic level of life and is naturally there when we chose to become more aware? It is impossible to become more aware and turn a blind eye to what we see, as when we do so we immediately will lose that awareness.

    1. Exactly Nico – “what is wrong with responsibility?” The word has certainly developed hugely negative connotations, which have most of us running a mile from being responsible as it feels such a burden to take on, and we would rather have someone else be responsible instead. But I, like you, have come to know that true responsibility is simply a natural part of our lives and to approach it like this, removes the burden and replaces it with a willingness to say yes to the natural order of life.

  14. It would seem that the understanding of the difference between living from your mind and living from the honesty of your body are crucial in determining the quality of your well-being and with that the depth with which you can perceive life.

    1. Wisely shared Joshua. I have found this to be true also, that there is far greater fulfillment and settlement in my life the more I live guided by the honesty of my body – as you have stated.

    2. Yes, I have found that to be the case. My mind can tell me what I want to hear, it is a master at justifying why I do certain things that I know full well my body does not enjoy. But my body doesn’t play that game, it is consistent and steady, and loves the lightness of being that comes from being honest about what is working and what is not.

  15. How much do I value the truth that my body is communicating all of the time. Do I value creation more and abuse my body or do i value and appreciate all that is given me throught my body and align to the truth, to its divine essence, the pot of gold inside.

  16. Every moment contains gold in the midst of the lead it is surrounded by. Alchemy is the process of making life the gold it potentially is by living it, and thereby transmuting the lead until there is only gold left to be lived.

  17. Lovely to read this again Susan, I could feel from your words that for me undervaluing my pot of gold is something to work on, and to bring in appreciation and resource the the truth and wisdom within myself more. It’s easy to turn to worrying thoughts or stay stuck instead of remembering what I have access to within myself as a true support.

  18. Love this Susan – we have so much to appreciate in life, from the basic air we breathe, the planet we live on, to the body we walk around in, and all the people in our lives. How much do we appreciate that in our every day, becuase its there to be appreciated if ever we want to.

  19. A welcome responsibility to be the Gold that we are and inspire others to rediscover their own inner Golden treasure.

  20. ‘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 can be in so much comfort living our life for our own not willing to be with the responsibility that is always there but we arrogantly dismisss. Responsibility is not a dirty word, it is coming with this overflowing pot of gold which will never stop to amaze us all.

  21. The title of this blog, ‘Life is Gold’ is filled with appreciation and shows us that life is not dull, mundane or miserable, it is the opposite of this when we are willing to take responsibility and allow the gold in life to shine and grow.

  22. ‘And the more Gold you have access to, the more Responsibility that comes with it.’ Spot on Susan, we cannot keep the gold to ourselves we need to share it with humanity, Serge Benhayon is a great example of a man who constantly shares his wisdom, truth and universal love with everyone equally.

  23. ‘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’ – there is Gold in this statement. But it begs the question, why do we search outside of us when everything we possibly need is within us all?

    The more I discover myself, the more I discover those gems within me. The more I value those gems, the more I discover me.

  24. Life is an alchemical process of purifying ourselves from the stains of creation in order to deliver the gold we are within in full and thus transform not only ourselves but by vibrational pull and alchemistic emanation with everything around us.

  25. To accept the Gold may mean admitting we’ve always known it’s there and haven’t chosen to resource it, and that also may mean we admit we are responsible for how we have experienced every life situation we have been in.

  26. ‘With each drop of Gold, comes Responsibility’ – absolutely and with this responsibility comes the integrity to deliver the truth.

  27. ‘Life is made up of moments and within that moment we can feel truth’ – those moments are priceless and no amount of money could satisfy that moment, it is a gift from God, ceaseless and more to come.

  28. If we are all born with knowing truth, then we are all aware of the rot that exists in our societies all over the world, which means that we all have the power to change what is not true and return back again to the wisdom of our first years.
