In my book, ‘Miner Miracles’ I use the analogy of a miner mining for rare jewels to explain the search that each of us must undertake to discover our true gifts and talents. We are all miners and a mine full of gems is concealed within each and every one of us. The search to find our true selves and our unique path of service is the adventure of a lifetime and is ultimately what gives our lives purpose.
It’s Sharing Our Gems That Makes Life Complete
Finding our jewels is only half of the journey though, sharing them makes life complete. When we share our gifts, we find the meaning and joy that makes our hearts content. Love is the key to the heart of the universe where all the treasures reside. Loving our talents and sharing them with others and making others happy is the purpose of life.
If You’re Lost, Ask for Directions
“Everyone has probably experienced the anxiety and frustration of getting lost and not knowing where to turn, and yet still refusing to ask for directions. Well the same rules apply for this life’s journey. If you don’t know where to dig, ask somebody, but not just anybody. Far too often we seek advice from those who are lost themselves. [ Excerpt from Miner Miracles]
So What’s Your Gift? And, Are You Sharing It?
We are all here for a reason. We all matter. It is when we don’t know why we are here or when we feel that we don’t matter that our joy wanes. You have the power to get your joy back. Do something unselfishly for someone else right now. Go ahead, share your gifts with the world and create your own joy.
