THE GOLD WITHIN
You have to be able to see that the world we
live in is one of absolute freedom.
But you won't be able to see this world
if you're walking around
looking for it outside yourself.
Looking outside yourself for answers is like
living in a home made of gold
and complaining that you're poor.
If you simply open your eyes
to Reality as it is
that there is a treasure
that you can use endlessly, forever.
Inside of you is a golden nugget.
You are made of pure gold.
And everywhere you stand or sit is pure gold as well.
