iThink - You're Precious (Avos 2:16)

Rav Binyamin Hutt

Although every buried diamond must still be mined, cut, and set, the jewel already exists.  It is only a matter of carving away the layers upon layers that conceal the small fortune, and polishing it to perfection.  It is stunning to see the parallel between the world of the physical and the world of the spiritual.  Do not be deterred by your current state.  You already are a precious person with a unique color, cut, and clarity waiting to adorn the world.  You already are an elated, holy, and pure soul that refracts an exquisite light – the image of G-d.  You need not undergo a process of dramatic transformation, rather a process of invigorating revelation.  Slowly and patiently, you can cast off the impediments of ego and indulgence which veil your priceless potential.  If left buried beneath raw human behaviors of self-gratification, the world will never know your true rare beauty.  If you want to be a millionaire, cherish and reveal the jewel that you already are.
