“Dig Here”, the Angel said….

She caught me off guard when my soul said to me,
“Have we met?”

So surprised I was to hear her speak like that
I chuckled.

She began to sing a tale; “there was once a hardworking man
who used to worry so much because he could
not feed and clothe his children and
wife the way he wanted.

There was a beautiful little chapel in the village
where the man lived and one day while
he was praying, an angel
appeared.

The angel said, ‘Follow me.’  And he did out into an ancient forest.
‘Now dig here,’ the angel said.  and the man felt strength in
his limbs as he had not known since youth and with just
his bare hands he dug deep and found a
lost treasure, and his relationship
with the world changed.”

Finding our soul’s beauty does that-
gives us tremendous freedom
from worry.

“Dig here,” the angel said-
“in your soul,
in your
soul”
—St. John of the Cross
