The treasure we are

by Elouise

….when our hearts are free. Take a look and a listen. My comments  follow.

What would it take for me to be so free and focused? There’s no magic formula for what this pastor and his choir accomplished. What mattered was hard work, determination, shared vision, faithful allies and free spirits. Plus a Visionary Shepard who showed the way, encouraged, directed, reminded members of the goal, and participated in every painful, joyful step. Without apology, reticence, or pretense.

And what about us? There aren’t any short cuts. No magic wands. No overnight miracles. Just tons of practice plus the vision of becoming the treasures we are. Not alone, but alongside our Visionary Shepard. Each of us embodied treasure poured out freely, regardless of the high cost. Which, it seems, is full investment in a process that’s already taking us places we never dreamed we would go.
