WHY am I sharing a picture if a Golden Buddha? Not a religious or belief post or claim! Its figurative to the message I’m trying to make. Read on.
This is what I do in he AM during my workouts…I listen to books and discover things 😉–>
In Bangkok Thailand this VERY HEAVY clay/stucco Buddha was being moved at one point to a new location. As they were moving the Buddha it cracked. They stopped moving it to exam it for damages. Noticing there was something underneath they started to remove the clay and discovered it was pure gold.
The story goes on to explain how and why they assumed it got covered etc. (google it for more details if you’re curious for a history lesson 😉)
But my point in sharing this is that it was a REDISCOVERED gem in their eyes!
Now I’m getting all brainy on you–> the word discover from late Latin discooperire, from Latin dis- (expressing reversal) + cooperire ‘cover completely’. We need to ‘reverse that covering’–> in cover and find the TRUE gem beneath!
We all have a cover of clay- self doubt, negative thoughts, stress, etc.
We need to remove what ‘covers us’. Rediscover yourself!! It isn’t necessarily going to be easy BUT it’s worth it!!
YOU are a Gem! Hidden under your clay!
