THE DEEPER THEMES OF LIFE
Beauty and Strength
A gemstone must be cut and polished to reveal its true potential. The crown, or face of the jewel, is of course important — but so is its pavillion, the part that remains unseen. When the stone’s pavilion is cut with great precision, light passes through the crown, reflect off the pavilion, return through the stone again to illuminate the many facets of the stone’s crown. It is when I allow the deeper issues of my heart to be cut and then polished that the true beauty of who I am will be illuminated.
A tree’s canopy and its leaves are responsible for photosynthesis, while the tree’s roots ensure the supply of water. The physical and psychological aspects of my life are entwined in a similar way in order to bring forth my personal development and strength.
When I find it hard to make a decision, I become vulnerable and insecure. I stagnate, gradually losing who I am as a person. Yet not to choose is also a choice. Through making right choices I become clear and decisive and construct my own identity.
