"We arrive at truth, not by reason only, but also by the heart." - Pensees (1670)

                       Seeking truth is a great adventure.  It is probably the greatest adventure we will ever experience.  It is an adventure that lasts a lifetime and perhaps more.  We begin this adventure by listening to our heart.  We listen to our heart to gain the awareness of what is truly important to us, to understand what our treasure is.  Not the treasure that can be counted but the treasure that never rusts or decays.

                 "Where your heart is, there your treasure is also."  To fully understand this statement and to seek always to know where our heart is moves us into a glorious experience of joy, love, peace and harmony.  We understand that the thing that we put our heart into is our treasure.  This is the treasure that God has prepared for us.  This is the treasure that is so much a part of us that even though we may lose our job, our money, our health, and even our home, we continue to feel that life is filled with joy, peace and love.  This is the harmonizing power that the Infinite brings to all things that concern us.  We are not moved by the temporary appearances.  We can get another job, a new home, more money and we can see our health restored.  None of these things cause us to lose our treasure.  They are not what we treasure, they are but the things we use while we enjoy this experience called Life.

                  As we listen to our heart, we find what we treasure.  We find the thing that  touches our soul so intimately that no person, place or thing could ever be enough to replace it.  We find the thing that no amount of money could bargain away from us and the thing that no thief could ever steal for he would never know where it is.  This treasure is the Thing Itself.  It is our very own awareness of the Love that God Is expressing as our Good at all times.  It is the assurance and the confidence that trusting God, and God alone brings into our heart.  This treasure will never break our heart, will never leave us or deceive us and once fully realized by continually listening to our heart, we shall never want anything else.  And this is the Truth that surpasses all understanding.

                                
 And So It Is!           

Letting Love use me in Its own Good Way,
Henry Lee Bates
