Spirituality introduces to us a very beautiful concept of trusteeship. At first, I realize that as a spiritual being or soul, I possess the treasures of my thoughts, words, actions, qualities, powers, time, physical wealth, etc. While I may have many a times misused these treasures earlier, now I learn from God how to use them correctly for my spiritual upliftment or the long term benefit of me, the soul. As per God’s instructions, I use these treasures for a positive purpose of bringing not only myself but others also, closer to a state of truth, a state in which the soul experiences its original virtues of peace, joy, love, bliss, purity, power and wisdom. By doing that I, in return, experience spiritual self-growth.
Each time I deviate from this purpose, I come down spiritually, or I do not grow spiritually. This is a different type of existence as compared to before when I did not even realize that these were treasures in the first place. A treasure can be defined as something of immense value. So, these spiritual and physical energies or resources, which we have mentioned, which I own or possess, become treasures because by the right use of them towards myself and others, I can increase my spiritual self’s value. Once that is increased, the value of all the physical dimensions of my life and my success in them also increases as a result.
