The Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaton once said, “A contented mind is a hidden treasure, and trouble findeth it not.”
Is your mind contented or is it cluttered? Sometimes it feels as though our mind is an old mansion from a mystery book. You know the type, those dusty buildings with antiques on the mantelpiece.
There are undiscovered sections of the house and doors that we are forbidden to enter. We don’t quite know why we shouldn’t go through these doors, but everyone else seems to think that it’s a bad idea to try, so we don’t. We just exist in this old dusty mansion. We’re scared of what’s behind the doors at the end of dark corridors. We’re not completely happy, but not uncomfortable enough to leave.
We have most of what we need to survive, but nothing that we desire that would enable us to truly live. So we stick to the familiar rooms.
Then one day, something happens. You decide to face your fears and approach one of the forbidden doors.
I want you to imagine turning the knob, with a combination of fear and anticipation. Slowly, you open the door. You feel amazed and surprised. The room is full of light and wonderful treasures. The best part? Everything belongs to you.
Today, I want to encourage you to go through the forbidden door; to approach that which you have feared for too long. Take a risk and ignore the gnawing, irrational fear of the unknown and take action. Unimaginable riches are available to those who dare.
