St. Teresa of Avila

Few of us dispose ourselves
that the Lord may communicate
this treasure,
this pearl of contemplation to us.

In exterior matters we are proceeding well
so that we will reach what is necessary.

But in the practice of the virtues
that are necessary for arriving
at this point
we need very, very much,
we cannot be careless
in either small things or great.

Be brave in begging the Lord
to give us his grace in such a way
that nothing will be lacking
through our own fault;

That he will show us the way
and will so strengthen the soul
that it will dig until it finds the hidden treasure.

The truth is that the treasure
lives within our very selves.

On the lighter side, a similar  message is given below, but in an animated fashion which is both insightful and amusing.  Try it, you'll like it.

Swim a Little Deeper.

Life is full of ups and downs, but if you believe in yourself
you will always come through with flying colors.
Value friendship, love, and faith. Never underestimate yourself.
If you follow this advice you can never go wrong!
