The greatest miracle is the miracle of life; our ability to use our life ( as opposed to spending it) by celebrating and realizing our individual and collective ability to build a better present and future is real….and critical.
If you enjoy this short, purposeful allegory, please take a moment to share it with others.
The Secret to Peace and Prosperity
A Short, Purposeful, Allegory
Three wise men and one wise woman were walking in the woods, when they found a special box, a box unlike any other, hidden deep in the forest…
The three wise men approached the most incredible treasure, the secret to peace and prosperity…
The first wise man was too busy to see the treasure…
The second wise man was too stressed to see the treasure…
The third wise man fell to his knees and wept because the greatest treasure, the secret to peace and prosperity was emblazoned on a simple blade of grass that sat between the river of his greatest desires and his most hidden weaknesses and fear…
- Live and lead with faith in your highest power and dedication to following the universal values that sustain your world, and you will discover the secret to building your best self, best thoughts, best emotions and best actions.
- Live and lead with compassion and non-judgment towards yourself and your fellow human beings, and you will discover the secret to building humility, courage, tenacity and resiliency in the face of change and pain.
- Live and lead with love in your heart for the great gift of life, and you will discover that the secret to peace and prosperity lies not in what you can command, control or acquire but in what you can give, receive and share.
The third wise man turned to the wise woman with whom he shared his story, and continued to cry because…
In reading what was written on that simple blade of grass between his greatest desires and his most hidden weaknesses and fears…
He had opened his head, heart and soul to that eternal flame that can transform all that is into all that can be…
Today, as you are reading these words and digesting this simple story; think about the purpose of your life, pause and reflect upon the reality that life and the accoutrements of success and comfort that you acquire on your journey are simply on loan to you.
When you leave this life, all that you have commanded, controlled and acquired disappears.
But, the faith, compassion and love that you have shared with others becomes a legacy, an eternal, timeless treasure that will remain in the hearts and minds of those whose lives you have touched. A gift that they can, in turn pass on to others who seek to realize their potential to make a difference in their world.
Seize this moment, this day to think about how you can build the faith, compassion and love that can help you take your life from good to great by simply starting to activate your potential to make a difference in the life of another.
Because, all that we have, all that we are, is nothing in comparison with what we have the power to become when we choose to live and lead from goodness to greatness. Be the miracle, see your strengths and transform your challenges into your lever for a better present and future!
