Dig up your Garden

I’ve been chatting to my next door neighbour this morning; nothing serious just titbits of neighbourhood gossip and those other general stuff ranging from what he’ll do if he won £113m, to things like why on earth God made creatures like the foxes mating in his garden last night keeping  him awake.

Suddenly the topic changed,‘Can you believe this’, he said ‘i dug up all the trees in the garden the other week and found nothing,’ ‘no buried treasure?’ i replied. ‘No! Not even a penny’ came the answer. Jack doesn’t need a hidden treasure; he’s a comfortable gentleman probably in his 70s who don’t need to work at all though he does every now and then to keep his mind active. Besides we live in a relatively new neighbourhood, if ever there were treasures, i think we got there too late.
 
 
My conversation with Jack made me realise how we usually dig for treasures in the wrong places, who won’t like to wander into a field like DaveCrisp, 63, who had spent more than 20 years hunting for buried treasure, with modest success. And then gold in April when he dug down a foot into the earth of a field near Frome, Somerset, and found a huge, well-preserved earthenware pot full of coins. (guardian.co.uk).
 
Good on you Dave; but what if you didn’t have to go that far, need heavy boots or even carry a metal detector; the wealthiest place on earth is the grave yard a wise man said. Now before you go tomb raiding, except in a few cases, the wealth buried in the graveyards are good for no one. The bulk of it refers to dreams and untapped mental abilities that never saw the light of day. There’s always good  reasons for not investing into a good dream; would cost too much, takes too much time, would be too difficult, I’m too busy,  what if i fail, it’s not dignifying, I’m not good enough,  I’m the wrong colour the list is endless.

Your treasure garden lies between your ears; your mind, dig it up, don’t leave it to fallow, it will sweat but it will get better with every effort. Obviously we won’t all be Leonardo da Vinci, Einstein, Gandhi or any of the great minds of renown past or present, however we all carry a unique treasure in our gardens that one day could be worth a king’s ransom.
 
Digging for ideas is similar to mining diamonds a wise man said, you often get the small ones but if you keep at it like our friend Dave Crisp, one day; hopefully not in 20 years, you’ll get that nugget that’ll make it worthwhile. Make sure you don’t stop digging one foot to it.

Thanks for this Tikio, found it very interesting and uplifting; just thinking should anyone's dreams be buried, there's still hope you can go to the graveyard and dig them up, excuse me if you're not in faith but there's a story in the Bible that i like a lot; Ezekiel 37:4-6 Then he said to me, "Prophesy to these bones and say to them, 'Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! This is what the Sovereign LORD says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.' " As you dig in your garden, either for old dreams or new ones, please pray along too and speak to your dreams...God bless.

Found this story as narrated by Eckhart Tolle regarding the subject of enlightenment: A beggar has been sitting at the side of a road for over 30years, one day a stranger walked by. ‘Spare some change?’ mumbled the beggar, mechanically holding out his old baseball cap, ‘I’ve nothing to give you said the stranger’, then he asked ‘what’s that you’re sitting on’, ‘nothing ‘replied the beggar,’ just an old box, I’ve been sitting on it for as long as i can remember’, ‘ever looked inside?’ asked the stranger, no said the beggar, what’s the point, there’s nothing in there. ‘Have a look inside insisted the stranger.’ The beggar managed to pry open the lid, with astonishment, disbelieve and elation, he saw that the box was filled with gold

Support your argument with reasoned facts. A well-written essay is great, but a well-argued essay is undeniable.

This is very accurate. Businesses will sometimes aid you just because you were truthful and candid with them. Honesty is invariably the greatest choice. You may have saved yourself the bother by telling them before it was due.
