TREASURE HUNTING


Let us  imagine that....

...  the treasure called LIFE - life at its best, life as life was meant to be... is hidden on a great mountain peak.  

A path leads to it, and we are gathered at the starting point below. 

We are going to seek this treasure TOGETHER. 

The time has come to begin. The prospects are hopeful and we are eager to be off. 





Before we begin our journey, however, we need to know something about the path ahead. 


What path do we gonna take?


-Is it long and winding path?
-Or a desert-like one ?
-A scary and slippery path? 


Most likely, we travel a different path.  
It could be a scary and slippery path when our day is full of anticipation, and fragile or sensitive moment of life given events; It could also be a desert-like path when during the course of our journey we are carrying heavy baggage, such as problems and tribulations that made our journey rough; Or it could be a long and winding path wherein the journey seems endless, and yet whatever curves ahead, still we are very much hopeful that at the end of it is the rising sun,  promising hope. 

In order to survive in this journey, in order to climb up the mountain to get the hidden treasure, for us to be able to get the "gold", we need a clear sound philosophy of life. We need to understand that Life is being truly human. 

But what is it that makes a human being?

     - Well,  as far as I'm concern, It's not whether we have money or not. 
     - It's not whether we have a home and family or not
     - It's not what we all ask  and get immediate answers
     - It's not about what job we do or if we do have a job or none

     ... but it's far better than that !

It's not even about the pain we experienced at the hospital or the hurt we get from missing or losing a dear one.. It's not all about that!! 

     ... It is what is inside - it's what a friend of mine calls the heart. It's what we always read on fb status about "speak with a heart", "use your heart". In other words, it's the TRUTH, the CORE, the real person inside a hurting friend, a real  person inside a prostitute,  inside the criminal, inside the greed people. 
     
     ... It is the real person inside ME and the real person inside YOU. We are all different being with different race and culture from different part of the globe, but we have one common in us, THE HEART (the real gold).

We hunt for treasure, we go for the gold. We do not acknowledge that the real treasure, the priceless gold is inside us.

People are blinded of the real treasure because of the notion that the real treasure is success. 

You do not understand that the real treasure...  the real gold is right where you are, and that is being truly human. 
 

Because most of us are blinded, we tend to seek the treasure at the mountain peak. 
Now, we are at the starting point of this treasure hunting. 
We are at the foot of the mountain, getting ready to climb up and get the treasure that is hidden at the peak of it.. the so called LIFE' SUCCESS.

" To WIN 
is to accept who you are
To SUCCEED
is to know what you really WANT"

Good luck with your journey!
