Hey fellow “ordinary, everyday guru seekers,” I love the topic of the day. I hope you enjoy it too. Thank you, Joanne, for daring to ask this important question. I received this email yesterday.
Dear Mr. White
You write that every one of us is a rich and majestic child of Infinite Intelligence. I don’t feel like I am. In fact I feel inferior a lot of the time. Will you be an ordinary guru and give me a tip on how to feel that I am a majestic child of the Infinite.
Thank you, Joanne K
Might I tell you a story?
Joanne was a simple woman who owned a vintage junk jewelry store. The sign on the store actually said: VINTAGE JUNK JEWELRY FOR SALE.
Joanne wasn’t trying to pull the wool over anyone’s eyes about what she was selling. She was honest and delighted when someone came in to buy something. She made a very modest living.
One day a friend was sifting through Joanne’s inventory of junk jewelry, and let out with a loud gasp – WOW! She picked up what Joanne thought was a fake diamond tennis bracelet, and said, “I don’t think this is fake.”
Joanne took the bracelet across the street to the local jeweler, and learned that it was a real diamond tennis bracelet worth over $15,000.
This discovery aroused Joanne’s curiosity. She began paying more attention to the jewelry she bought for resale. This one experience changed her whole life. Her income has tripled because she now knows the difference between junk jewelry and jewelry of value, and she prices her inventory accordingly.
So what has the above story got to do with you, Joanne? Does it not have everything to do with you (and with everyone else, for that matter). When you are willing to look deeper into yourself with sincere curiosity, you will find incredible value in many hidden talents and inner strengths that you are right now, unaware of.
How do you look inside? Dare to set the bar higher for your standard of living. Take more chances. Try new things. In doing that, you will delightfully discover that there is so much more to you than you ever realized. And as you take more interest in finding these qualities within you – you will soon come to realize that you are a rich and majestic child of Infinite Intelligence.
Trust life, Joanne. Life is here to support you with this discovery. Thank you so much for bringing this up.
PS – I hope all of you are asking, “What does this have to do with me?” If you want to experience riches in all areas of your life – be it with relationships, with money, with incredible health, it is imperative that you recognize how rich you are on the inside.
PPS – Too vast are you with hidden talents, too imponderable for anyone to understand your many inner qualities and strengths. Pay no mind to anyone who tells you differently.
