Drawing Up, From the Well of Wisdom Located “Deep” Within Your Heart

The scripture in Proverbs 20: 5 of the Christian Bible, says: “Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water, but a man of understanding will draw it out”. A deep look at that scripture will give you the impression that an immeasurable amount of treasures lies within each human beings heart; and these treasures can help each individual live an outstanding and distinguished lifestyle! There is counsel, information and direction within the deepest part of man. It takes a lot of time and thinking to pull them out. Also, it takes wisdom to apply them towards becoming a mystery to your generation. When Joseph (of ancient Israel) gave Pharaoh insight into the impending economic crisis of their era, Pharaoh used that insight as a unique breakthrough in preventing the occurrence of any serious calamity. Joseph advised the king on how food could be preserved for seven years; without decadence, and without the application of any sophisticated technology.

In so many instances, seeking help by running from place to place, is not the real solution to some major issues in life. There is advice, information, direction and solution – within you. Your responsibility is to settle down and discover them. Many people don’t create time to settle down, meditate, think and plan; and so they end up frustrated. At every junction of life, meditate deeply within your spirit, in order to obtain directions. When you are committed to being thoughtful, through meditation, then you’ll be given proper direction. Most of the modern wonders of science were invented because men created time to think and tap into the abundance of wealth and treasures located within their minds. For example, electricity was around all the while: but no one saw it or did anything about it, until Benjamin Franklin thought about it, and brought it into physical existence.

Archimedes brought forth the laws of flotation after thinking deeply over the matter for a long period of time. He got the solution in the bathroom and shouted “eureka”, which means “I have found it”. Bill Gates, who is extremely wealthy and one of the fathers of modern information technology, is a confirmed thinker. A story was once told about him, that while he was in deep thought one day, his mother called out – “Bill, Bill”, but he was lost in his thoughts. When he was eventually asked what he was doing, he replied: “I was thinking, don’t you think?” Limitless amounts of useful information can emanate from your mind, if you make out time to delve into it a little bit, or even much more deeper – than usual. The fact that you don’t take time to think over the issues of life, doesn’t mean that you have an opportunity to be careless! Settle down and calmly meditate, in order to release the treasures of ideas located on the inside part of you.

In the Pursuit of Dreams, Along With Spiritual Development …

If we take a look at life from God’s position and perspective, we might be pushed to ask ourselves this big question — why are we here on Earth? What was God’s reason for placing us on Earth? Did we get here accidentally? Or, were we intentionally designed with a specific purpose which is different from what we think? Many people and many religions agree that our reason for being here has a unique purpose. One of the major purposes for being here (on Earth), is to locate your own destiny by consistently striving to find out what you were born to do; and then — go all out to fulfill it. By achieving fulfillment and greatness, we’ll certainly be able to contribute our own quota to the welfare and destiny of mankind; and the world at large. Another major purpose for being here — is to continuously develop spiritually as we travel on our everlasting journey of spirituality.

Unfortunately, the minds of most people tend to lead them astray, and into a direction which doesn’t come from the bowels of their hearts: this distracts them from finding the true purpose of their lives. Most people often think that money, power, success, fame and popularity will create an eternally happy lifestyle for them, and so they vigorously pursue these desires. Other types of people chase these dreams while simultaneously seeking spiritual development: this is the best option because you’ll be using one stone (life on earth) to kill two birds (your dreams, and spiritual development). The pursuit of spiritual development along with enlightenment about our destiny, would give us a peaceful state of mind, and make us feel more relaxed and calm. Our purpose in life is related to a considerable extent — with seeking spiritual enlightenment about God, his ethics and his kingdom. If our spirits are not sufficiently inspired and motivated, we’ll find it difficult to awaken the perception about our life’s purpose. A major key towards realizing spiritual development and enlightenment, is to follow your intuition – your spiritual thinking – your heart. We have to find out our purpose in life, and live it to the fullest – from deep within our souls. Living our life in this manner will imbibe stillness within our minds; and then, we’ll naturally be able to let go of negative emotions, hopelessness, fear, guilt, malice and false beliefs which normally preoccupy the human mind.

If we become successful in making the pursuit of spirituality – a habit, our minds will automatically tune into a greater reality which can help us achieve a stabilized level of spiritual enlightenment and continuous spiritual development. In summary — locate your life’s purpose. If you can succeed in doing so, then you won’t have much to worry about; and you will be contented with everything you have, no matter what position you are in life. Everyone has to learn how to let go of bad memories often associated with the past: don’t harbor them within your minds. In dropping the odds and negatives, our minds will gradually become more still as time passes by. Also, we have to develop a personality that can’t be negatively influenced by the outward (material) changes so often associated with life. In so doing, our minds will become less affected by any change in external situations. Another important thing to do is to rid ourselves of fear(s) associated with a lack of faith. This fear often keeps many people away from moving towards the direction of their destinies. Such negative traits prevent us from believing in God, the spiritual world, and eternity.
