What Are You Invested In? - Grasshopper
It dawned on me that the words “vestments” and “investments” come from the same place. Vestments are the type of robes that we cloak ourselves in. When we are in that specific robe, we are wrapped in its limitations.
I remember someone saying a long time ago, “Don’t invest in your outward beauty because it will not be a profitable, long-term investment.” Better to invest in your inner beauty and cash in on its dividends. This Eckhart Tolle quote comes to mind: “You do not become good by trying to be good but by finding the goodness that is already within you and allowing that goodness to emerge.” We can easily substitute the words “beautiful” and “beauty” for “good” and “goodness” and the meaning would be the same. Investing in your innate, natural beauty has you remove the outer vestments and reveal the everlasting beauty of your creative spirit. Certainly, look your best, but dig deeper than your surface beauty when deciding to invest. All the best, John
