If you really want more than just surface, casual or superficial anything, you must look again, and go beyond. See with unveiled eyes and hear with your spirit ears, mind and heart!
Treasures and jewels are rarely found on the surface, mostly you have to dig for the gold and search out treasures hidden in darkness.
When someone is speaking, do you automatically mentally check out after two seconds, or are you actively listening to every word?
If you truly put your own desires to be heard aside and just listen, you will discover rich hidden treasures in the souls of people. And that, my friend, is the most valuable treasure of all!
You and I are to explore, plant, cultivate and harvest!
“And I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that it is I the Lord, the God of Israel, Who calls you by your name.”
“The Kingdom of heaven is like something precious buried in a field, which a man found and hid again; then in his joy he goes and sells all he has and buys that field.
Again, the Kingdom of heaven is like a man who is a dealer in search of fine and precious pearls. Who, on finding a single pearl of great price, went and sold all he had and bought it.”
