When I saw this inspiration it was not a big deal...okay...then it kept popping up on my page; I had no choice other than to really read it and absorb it so it would really sink in. When I did stop to really read it...I could not believe what I was reading.
The CAVE YOU FEAR TO ENTER....Think about that for a second. How many caves in our lives do we fear to enter? I know for me personally quite a few...I fear the cave of myself the most. I know how smart I am when I apply myself, and I know how much I am capable of doing when I apply myself...but yet I fear the biggest cave of all which is ME. That's crazy!!!
HOLDS THE TREASURE YOU SEEK...Think about that for a second. We are always looking outside ourselves for the answers, for the miracles and for the strength to do something. But it is always inside each and every one of us. How powerful is that to know? We all hold the treasure inside the cave of ourselves.
Yesterday my husband and I went to this little park for a walk. It didn't have the usual trail that I am used to...it was cut grass then it turned into pretty much a deer trail. My husband always takes me into trails that are not trails and I am never dressed appropriately for the walk/"HIKE" LOL. Anyway, we end up on this crazy deer path that is muddy, tall grass and weeds with those sticker things that you can't get off your clothes...but to get to the end I had to climb down a steep hill and back up. However, there was this little creek I had to jump without falling in, or falling back or falling forward and getting hurt. I stood there for a minute or two or three or four...until the inspiration came to me....what we fear in the cave holds our treasure; I jumped...made a lot of crazy sounds, even pididdled myself a bit...but I made it. At that moment this inspiration allowed me to move forward.
I have been realizing more and more that I am trusting and getting stronger because I know that I am the cave...I want those treasures...but they are already inside me, therefore I already have them. I just need to bring them out so I can enjoy them. Really think about this for a bit...how have you been in fear? Trust yourself and know that you already are the cave and the treasure. You already have it all.
Another thing that is so important to realize is with my business...I am always in fear of that crazy cave...but now that I know what I am seeking is already inside me. Today, I am looking at my life totally different. In reality there is nothing to fear at all...it's the unknown that scares the daylights out of me. If I am going to fail it's because I could not get over myself...if I am going to succeed it's because I know that I have what it takes to do it. I am the cave and I am the treasure...from this day forward my cave is lit up so it does not look so scary.
Look at your own life; what is it that you are truly afraid of then realize it is all you. You are not to be feared!!! Until we meet again my friends...
With all my love...Rita
