Are you filling your life with Fool’s Gold or Gold? Both Fool’s Gold and Gold are shiny and bright. Both are beautiful, catching the eye and quickening the spirit. Both have caused men to sacrifice all that they have in order to attain them. Both cause men to mine the deepest parts of their hearts and lives. Both have caused murder and mayhem, laying waste to entire cities. One serves you, and all of creation.
The other serves only itself.
I can hear you already. What!?! Everyone can recognize the difference between Fool’s Gold and Gold! Are you crazy? Murder? Laying waste entire cities? Did you drink the Kool-Aid?
If I were really talking about the minerals, those questions would be reasonable. When you are on the Hero’s Journey, the journey to the center of your heart and soul, being able to discern between ‘fool’s gold’ and ‘gold’ defines your very life.
What is it you love?
Or the value you can bring to the world as an effect of being powerful?
Or the impact you create as an effect of being influential?
Or the ability to be a part of transforming entire systems as an effect of embodying authentic authority?
Or being an economic powerhouse as an effect of using the energy of money to create income streams for countless others?
Fame and Glory?
Or the respect you have earned as an effect of bringing value to the world through your life’s purpose and passion?
Fool’s Gold cannot satisfy your soul. Symbols of truth are very different from living the truth of your destiny. You and you alone, have the power to choose which you bring into your life.
Which do you choose?
I chose Fool’s Gold for a long time, squandering over 30 years of my life leaning my ‘success ladder’ against the wrong wall, following what others said was important. It might have been important to them, but it was not important to me. Fool’s gold could not satisfy the longings of my heart. Depression, sadness, and listlessness are its fruit.
I choose Gold. It’s really so much easier than you think. Make a list of all the things you do each day. Make a list of all that brings you joy. Compare the lists. Adjust accordingly. Peace, Joy, and Happiness are its fruit.
