The things you treasure

What are the things you treasure the most? It pays to carefully consider them.

Are the things you treasure things you have taken away from others or gained at their expense? Then those things will soon, in like manner, be taken away from you.

Do you need to be dishonest about who you are in order to have and enjoy the things you treasure? Then those things can surely steal all the joy from your life.

Or are the things you treasure the many ways in which you have given of yourself to the world? Then those good things will come back to you again and again, increasing in value and abundance.

Are the things you treasure things you have worked with passion and purpose to contribute to life? Then those things will grow in power and influence, and will enable you to create even more real goodness.

Look at the things you treasure, and you can see where your life will go. Choose wisely the things you treasure, and they will bring great richness to all you know.
