Life is a Treasure Hunt

treasure One of the reasons we are introduced to life in this earthly plane is to make the journey from dependency to independance.  Babies are totally dependant on their parents.  As we grow through early childhood we are reliant on our parents.  Some believe reliance should continue through their entire lifetime.   The truth is we are here to transition from being dependant to a self-reliant, fully independant individual.  But all too often the state of dependency never gets broken.

It is just passed on to a mate or a friend.  We create codependency:  “You need to be there for me,” or “You complete me.”   This codependency leads to a lot of drama especially when we perceive they have done something to us or failed to do something for us.  We have people to blame and become very comfortable in our victimhood as we look for someone to save us from that.  This state of dependency will never lead to a fulfilling life because the power is never in someone else…..the power is always within.

Part of our mission in life is to reclaim our power, to become fully independent  and responsible for our actions.  We are not here to be victims.  We are here to be creators.  The very best relatonships are those intered into by two fully independent individuals who recognize one another’s independence.  In such relationships the participants are free to be who they are knowing they have the love and support of each other.

Life is much like a treasure hunt.  And the treasure is hidden within us.  Until we recognize it, we’ll always look for the treasure outside of ourselves.  As we continue our treasure hunt there comes a moment of awareness when we finally realize the treasure is who we are.  We are all treasure.  Be at peace with who you are.  You are a unique expression of God.  Have faith and confidence in your ability to make choices.  In this society we’ve been trained to believe we need to look to others for validation and direction.  When you reclaim your life after your early years as a child, you make yourself whole.  Trust that you will make decisions which allow for your maximum growth.

It really doesn’t matter which choice you make.  Some people spend a lot of time worrying they will make the wrong choice.  Just remember there is value in every choice you make.  Every choice leads to new choices.  The important thing is that you move.  Don’t worry that one door looks prettier, or more seviere.  Just go through a door.  The worst mistake you can make is to not make a choice.  So, move.  If you are to grow, you must move.  Any choice will take you where you need to go.  Trust that.

For now, Earlynn’s just sayin’:  “Life’s greatest treasure is YOU.  And since we are one, WE are life’s treasure.  Matthew 6:21,  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
