Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for your-selves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is your heart will be also.
When we meditate we see beyond physical reality and observe the reality that encapsulates the needs of the spirit. The spirits wish for us is to set us free from the pain and misery that has engulfed the world we live in. In pursuing this truth it transforms us from within enabling us to fill our store houses with wealth of contentment, fulfilment, peace, purity and healing. This type of wealth has been referred to as ‘Treasures in heaven’ and is totally at odds with wealth of the norm such as money, property and status. It is not possible to pursue both physical and spiritual wealth; ones spiritual goal cannot be reached if one is of two minds as to whether the goal before you is that which you seek. Surely we should give more value to the former which is not subject to the law of impermanence.
Therefore meditate on the teachings of the bible and bring them into your conscious experience so your perception of life and consequent conduct may be in keeping with the truth of the spirit.
