Finding Treasure

A man was exploring caves by the seashore. In one of the caves he found a canvas bag with a bunch of hardened clay vessels. It was like someone had rolled balls of clay and left them out in the sun to bake.

They didn’t look like much, but they intrigued the man, so he took the bag out of the cave with him. As he strolled along the beach, he would throw the clay balls one at a time out into the ocean as far as he could.

He thought little about it, until he dropped one of the clay balls and it cracked open on a rock. Inside was a beautiful, precious stone!

Excited, the man started breaking open the remaining clay vessels. Each contained a similar treasure. He found thousands of dollars worth of jewels in the 20 or so clay balls he had left. Then it struck him.

He had been on the beach a long time. He had thrown maybe 50 or 60 of the clay balls with their hidden treasure into the ocean waves. Instead of thousands of dollars in treasure, he could have taken home tens of thousands, but he had just thrown it away!

It’s like that with people. We look at someone, maybe even ourselves, and we see the external clay vessel. It doesn’t look like much from the outside. It isn’t always beautiful or sparkling, so we discount it.

We see that person as less important than someone more beautiful or stylish or well known or wealthy But we have not taken the time to find the treasure hidden inside that person.

There is a treasure in each one of us. If we take the time to get to know that person, then the clay begins to peel away and the brilliant gem begins to shine forth.

May we not come to the end of our lives and find out that we have thrown away a fortune in friendships because the gems were hidden in bits of clay.

Benita:
It is really wonderful to have this opportunity, to be with you in this way. Thank you Esther. Thank you Jerry. Thank you Karen, Mike, Barbara, Jeanie – all you guys are so kind and wonderful to me and I just want you to know that I appreciate you all.

Abraham:
And of course you don’t deserve it at all.

Benita:
Oh – {laughs} I am so worthy and deserving.

Abraham:
When people are nice to you it’s because that’s your point of attraction, isn’t it.

Benita:
Yeah, it is, exactly and many,many people are nice to me so I appreciate that so much, including you.

Abraham, we had our first conversation back in 2006 and many more since then. I told you in 2007, and any one who would listen, that in 2008 I was going to procreate. That year came and went and no baby.

Abraham:
Well you missed your window… talk about a stale desire. Tell us more – get really specific

Benita:
{laughs} I hear you, I got a lot more for you.

I created a new mantra for the following year and that was “I’m gonna be fine cuz my baby’s coming in 2009”. And 2009 came and went and no baby. So in 2010…

Be Moderate About the Vortex

“She is in love with everything.”

So what we are getting at here with you, this has been a really good demonstration of energy moving. We want you all to just acknowledge that you are in the Vortex, at one time or another, on several occasions through the day. And sometimes it just feels like a place of utter peacefulness. Sometimes it feels like a place of appreciation that just wells up in you. Sometimes it feels like love. Sometimes it feels like eagerness. But in almost every case, it is a sort of brief spiking, that as you acknowledge it, will come to you frequently. We would like you to feel the Vortex as this place where you move from interest to eagerness to love to appreciation to peacefulness. But we would like you to realize that, as you hang around there, in any of that range of emotions, that the more that you are able to maintain your vibrational frequency there, the more within the vortex you will begin to spike. So that the lowest of your day will still be in the Vortex and the highest of your day will be off the wall sort of enthusiasm. We want you to feel moderate about the Vortex. We don’t want you to hype the Vortex. That really is the message we want to give you. We don’t want you to hype it, we want you to feel natural within it.

We would rather that you feel Worthy, and Loved, and Blessed, even than eager, and passionate. Because the Loved and Worthy and Blessed is sustainable from moment to moment to moment. Where that high flying enthusiasm, the specifics of it, they’re only going to come occasionally. So we don’t want you to misunderstand when you are in the Vortex. We don’t want you to think the Vortex is always that bouncing off the wall stuff. We want you to realize that when sometimes just sitting in quiet contemplation, in a feeling of utter well being, you’re in the vortex, and you are doing the work. In fact, anytime that you’re not feeling negative emotion, you’re doing the work.
