We are on a Treasure Hunt

Teacher: The I AM

The I AM within you speaks.  

I know all of your thoughts and your hopes for an exciting future, yet I require you to bring your concerns to me that you may work them out against the realities of your life and the fantasies of your mind where I can show you what is real and what is imagined.  Sometimes what you focus on distracts you from your own spiritual growth.  Fear of the unknown or fear of a future that falls short of your own expectations is mostly unfounded.  Whether or not you understand our relationship does not change how I operate to mold you into a vessel of my expression and how I work without end to spiritize your mind.  When I stand at the door of your heart and knock, and you pass by the door without answer, I move to another door.  I will continue to find ways of engaging your mind to help you understand the realities of your world and how to grow from the experiences in life.  

You and I are beloved partners and we are on a treasure hunt, of sorts, to find the gems in life that we can carry with us into eternity.  Sometimes you come very close to finding the largest gem that lies buried just beneath your feet—you stand on it and I shout out, “There it is Dear One, look down and see the shard that is exposed above the surface—bend down and seize it!”  Many times you stop and hear me calling, but you fail to receive the message—you continue walking and pass by the great gem.  Know that I love you dearly and I am not disappointed—it shows me that I have succeeded in guiding you to the place where the gems are and that I have work to do to get you to bend your knee and look to see the tip of the gem.

You sometimes hear me later and have a sense that you missed an opportunity, but fear not, your life is full of opportunities and I will continue to lead you to to them.  Do not get discouraged, for I can always bring you back to the place where you stood over the gem, and when you are ready to hear my instructions, you shall bend your knee and discover the gem.  What I do require of you is that you consistently go out on the hunt, for if you stay home in your comfortable abode, you cannot find the treasure that I require you to claim.  Those gems that I guide you to find are the keys that unlock the doors that are now closed to you here and hereafter.  Union with me depends on you opening many doors and having the keys to those doors are essential to our eternal partnership.

You are on the right path and you have a partner that can see every gem along the way.  Feel me in your heart, listen to my gentle voice, and when you get the urge to stop, take a moment to look around you and discover the hidden gem.  It is in the bending of your knee in service to others that you get close enough to see the refraction of the shard that finally catches your eye.  Sometimes it takes teamwork to dig out the very large gems.  Soon you will become an expert at this and you shall teach others how to find the greatest gems—this is our work to do together and it is something I have long planned for—even before your birth into this world.

Put on your hiking boots and take your backpack—walk with me—you and I have much to discover.

To infinity and beyond!

I AM that You Are
