Termite Trail Reveals Concealed Truth
I must admit that when I saw a mud tube hanging from my dining room ceiling, my heart sank. Termites. Living in Arizona means living amongst termites, but it amazing how what we cannot see does not really 'seem' to affect us.
I knew when I looked at this tube, it was just a symptom of a much deeper problem. Immediately, I wanted to knock down the mud and seal up the hole. This would temporarily mask the problem creating greater damage behind the scenes until I was prepared to face the truth.
Unable to get pest control to come out until today has left me contemplating the idea of cause and effect. I would imagine that the destruction of termites is much like that of cancer or other disease. By the time you see evidence of cancer, so much damage has been done beneath the surface. To remove the part you can see without going deeper is a deadly distraction.
My exterminator, Rich, treated the floor. I wondered if he missed the fact that the termites we coming out the ceiling. The mud trail, he so eloquently reminded me is a symptom. The ground is the point of origination or the cause. Masking symptoms will keep you in a state of perpetually masking symptoms until you are hollowed out like a mud tube.
If you want to make significant changes in your life, look deeper than the surface. Look past the symptoms and into the root or cause. Changing the cause is changing your beliefs. Produce different results. Cause different Effects. Look into the origin of your unhappiness and be your own exterminator. Release the beliefs that no longer serve you. Life is short. Leave a trail of happiness, not a hollow trail of mud!
Being Happy Healthy and Fit means looking deeper into Truth, your Truth. Have an Amazing and love filled day!
