Embrace What Is Yours

perspective
Every breath, a diamond.
 
Every day, a mansion.
 
Every thought, an inheritance.
 
Every moment, a kingdom we reign within.
 
To be rich, one only needs to see things more clearly.
What is it that throws dust in our eyes, blinds us, and makes us feel impoverished?
 
It is the thief of joy and the thrower of dust into our eyes: Comparison.
 
We compare what we have to others, all the petty things that man can make, man can buy and sell, man can exclude others from, we not only lose our joy, we lose sight of what we do have.
 
When we compare our lives to the things of others, we live our whole lives in a fog, thinking that is all life is, a fog.
 
Come out of it.
 
Forget about comparing your lot in life to that of others.
 
Come out of that fog and see clearly.
 
See your breath as a treasure.
 
See the day as your glorious home to inhabit.
 
See your thoughts (that we can think! That we can have ideas, we can create concepts in our mind! How? Why? What a blessing! What a thing to be given!) as one of the greatest gifts from your Father.
 
See this moment, this precious moment, for what it truly is: A kingdom—a moment where you have within yourself, within your thoughts, within your heart, within your spirit, complete reign over. And from there, you can interact with that moment around you.
 
We are all rich beyond our wildest dreams. Don’t blind yourself to it. Forsake comparison, shake the dust out of your eyes, and embrace what is yours.
 
Every breath, a diamond.
 
Every day, a mansion.
 
Every thought, an inheritance.
 
Every moment, a kingdom we reign within.
