My heart – that is on earth ever aimed at God,
And shows its treasure when Death shatters it.
Thought from the soul:
Heart treasure—that is what I want to have—a true treasure in my heart. As I journey this earthen way, my heart is aimed at God. Practicing Presence, but sometimes I forget or look away. I wonder what treasure was lost in those moments of discarded awareness?
Sometimes, I forget, too, that the treasure chest is not the treasure itself. Too much looking at the external soul neglects the internal one. And then my inner treasure is closed up and hidden. I don’t see it and neither does anyone else. I must reopen the treasure box and let what is inside reflect the light which illuminates it. I wonder what beauty might be revealed when I uncover those hidden jewels?
As I walk the earthen path, the God on whom my heart is aimed has shown me some of what lies in my treasured heart. But there is much unknown wealth yet stored there still lying in the darker places. A lifetime of uncovering work. Finished at my final breath. What then will my heart’s treasure be when death does finally shatter my heart?
