One day three men in dire need of money, in three different parts of the world, each awoke to find a small bag with a note by their beds. The note said that this was a gift from a stranger. Each man then opened his package and found five red diamonds within it. The possible value of each stone was one million dollars each! Excited and motivated they each jumped out of bed and ran to their wives to show of their good fortune. The wives looked to their husbands and said that they had been using positive thinking and words and that is how the stones manifested! They also said they had a dream in which the Creator of the Universe appeared and offered them anything they desired. Excitedly, they then said to their husbands that all their problems were now solved and that all the husbands had to do was to now sell the diamonds. All three husbands then left their homes to sell the stones. At the end of the day each then returned. “What happened?” asked the eager wives. The first man sold all five stones, each for one million dollars. The second man finally sold all five stones, each for half of the value. The third man sold none of the stones no matter what discount he offered them for. The question is why did one man sell all the diamonds at top dollar, one man for half and one for none? The answer is the man whose wife asked the Creator of the Universe for the diamonds alone sold nothing. The one whose wife asked the Creator of the Universe for the diamonds and a place to sell them sold them for half. But the wise mans wife who asked the Creator of the Universe for diamonds, a place to sell them AND for the right buyers to cross her husbands path got the full bounty. We must remember that an “ingot of silver may contain a silver wine glass in raw form” but it is a blob of silver until the silversmith shapes it into a useful cup. Until then it is not vessel that can hold the wine and be used for Blessings. It’s but blob of silver. We should remember, it’s always great to have the possible potential (or a bag of diamonds!) But the real lesson here is that the possibility of potential is not the thing that truly solves the problem, it is not the end result, it’s just a possible potential, a start, that allows you to fulfill a possibility. BUT for the right person who truly understands this IT WILL BE MORE THAN ENOUGH to get the full bounty from the potential of their universe!!!
