Per Dan Gable, “Gold medals aren’t really made of gold. They’re made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.” So, what is this Gold Medal for which athletes devote their strength, determination, dreams – their very lives – to attain? “Why?” one would ask, when it will most likely simply be framed and displayed, but other than that, will have no use! What, in OUR lives, do WE consider so valuable as to devote the totality of our being to attain? Will it be something to display on a shelf, for a few to see? Or something to radiate, on a daily basis, for the whole world to see; something which will benefit not only us, but all whom we touch! We are invited, this week to reexamine our priorities and, if appropriate, make some self-nurturing changes. Gold is obtained by washing/burning away all that is not Gold. When we release all that does not support our highest good, we are going for the GOLD standard of God Ordained Life Demonstrated!
