Beneath the trappings, the makeup, daily rituals, the job, your knick-knacks and belongings, your culturally approved clothing, your shiny phone, who are you?
At the center of your being, the heart and soul of you… Beneath the layers of manners and civilization, deeper than your book learning, your schooling, your domestication, who are you?

Continue to peel the layers away as you go inward. Search for what lies underneath the surface veneer of your life. At your deepest level, Who are you? What is your soul’s purpose here on Earth?
If you get the answer: “My purpose is to make a lot of money!”, try again…That might be a secondary benefit resulting from your alignment with your purpose and mission. You might be good at it, it might feel good, but you must dig even deeper!
What treasures lie hidden or dimly remembered in your heart? Can you bring them to the light and tap into that deep well of passion, inspiration and inner power that will enrich and satisfy your spirit and fuel your life?
When you tap into your depths you will discover a deep well of life within you! The abundance of spirit is so much more than you could ever imagine!
How do you calculate your wealth?
What is your currency? Days on this earth? Golden sunlight sparkling on the creek? Silver moonlight blessing your nights? Every breath you take? The exquisite natural beauty of this planet?
What is your wealth? The number of green leaves on your crown? The extent of your roots and branches? The health and well being of your body?
What are your riches? The depth of your friendships? The love of your spouse, your children and grandchildren? The blessed and varied food that is set before you day in and day out?
What is your fortune? The energy of life that flows through your being? Your ceaseless creative ideas, your laughter? Your feeling of belonging? Your physical form, human body, or tree…?
What is your prosperity? All that is freely provided by this planet so that you can live and thrive here? The breathtaking beauty given each day to those who would feel and notice. The creations of those who’ve gone before you?
Hold your magnificent blessings in your heart until it overflows with appreciation and gratitude for all of creation.
Your wealth, no matter who you are, is beyond measure, priceless.
