In the 4th century BC, in India, man unearthed the first diamond. The first NATURAL diamond.
100 miles deep in the earth’s crust, there exists crystalline carbon. The temperature here reaches 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit.
And the pressure applied is 725,000 pounds per square inch.
This extreme heat and pressure modified the molecular structure of carbon. It restructured from a hexagonal sheet pattern into a triangular shape.
The diamond shape that we know today.
But how do they rise up?
Through volcanic eruptions.
That they would bring health, wealth, and strength.
Why do we care about this?
Because the journey we are on IS the journey of a diamond.
From who we are (carbon), to who we can become (a diamond).
We MUST also pass through intense heat and pressure to morph. To change our being at our core. To become more than we are.
We NEED the HEAT and PRESSURE.
There is a transformation going on inside. An evolution of sorts.
Don’t turn down the heat. Don’t reduce the pressure.
LET IT TRANSFORM YOU.
LET IT ERUPT with the power of a volcano and bring forth the gifts from the Gods.
Look at how you’re performing in life.
Are you avoiding the heat? The pressure? Challenges?
Try to understand why that is, and step up to it with a plan. It is only through challenges that opportunities arise.
Find them, and face them.
