What do you Treasure: How and How much do you treasure it?


Last outing before fasting
Last outing on the eve of my spiritual journey

I remember writing a chapter titled Alain my Treasure in my very first memoir. This Alain in not Alain my son, He was a boyfriend. The relationship over, I moved on to find another treasure. I have dabbled to call two others my treasures again since then before the final enlightenment…

What am I trying to say, we all (at least majority), seek something to cherish here below, to consider our treasure. In yester years, I sought that in men and sex was a good – welcome part of the search. Oh how I blundered and sauntered – strolling miserably through life with no particular direction and near losing my mind…

Could I have so failed to think I could be my own treasure?

And so, when I came to find the one and only true love I could ever truly possess here below; the infinite source from which I could genuinely give to all others on my path; the love that had been buried deep within thanks to all the happenings of life regardless of their source, I couldn’t stop crying.

I AM MY TREASURE! MY SPIRIT, SOUL AND BODY ARE MY TREASURES!

And who am I? I already got the answer to this one, thank God – my source of all…

So, how do I take care of my treasure? In 5 lines shall I?

  1. I keep it healthy and happy; no junk food, thoughts, actions or reactions so help me God;
  2. I protect it from toxic relationships regardless of off or online, I have that power;
  3. I keep it clean and free from fear, worry, and all such in between;
  4. I nurture it each and every moment by appreciating it and sharing its shine for in giving we receive;
  5. I commit it to its great purpose as designed by the creator itself – by Grace I have found my path and purpose; even if I still have a long way to go; am in a much much better place and grateful for the purification journey just started.

And how much do I treasure myself, oh I am grateful to be alive – to not have left in 2009 when I picked up that knife– Thank you Lord

Dear all, in the above picture taken on the eve of my purification journey, I was on my way out to a birthday where I ate meat for hopefully my last time. I am a vegetarian now for health and spiritual reasons – and yes because that is good in safeguarding my treasure.

And so this morning for breakfast (day 1 of 3 days break) I fed my treasure the following: Small plate of mixed veggie salad, a bowl of soybean pap with some rice, ginger/turmeric tea with honey and a banana. I make much tea and keep in the flask to drink as needed during the day for my small cold lol

May I therefore encourage you to find yours and take good care of same…

  1. All healthy lifestyles do NOT necessary fill our individual needs. They are a basis for STARTING a protocol (ex Vegetarian, Vegan. Paleo, Ketogenic, etc…) that needs to be evaluated during the process to make certain our bodies needs are being met. NEVER base the answer solely on how one “feels.” I always recommended FLEXIBILITY to my patients to remove steadfast behaviors that may have negatively impacted positive intentions. Many dietary plans often exclude (or make it difficult) to include important vitamins and minerals even though SYMPTOMS remain absent. Research your diet and look for its “weaknesses” to avoid becoming a statistic. Knowledge is crucial when following even the healthiest components in living.

    1. Exactly doc, am doing just that. It is a gradual process but am certain I don’t want to eat meat again. So much gout history in my families both sides and all. I wouldn’t impose that on the boys, they’ll make their own choices. Thank you so much for this invaluable advice and feedback
