A box without hinges, key or lid, yet golden treasures inside hid...

I remember reading these very words when I was kid in the scene where Gollum and Bilbo are exchanging riddles in dark within Gollum's caves. There is a lot to this story but what just strikes me about this riddle is something that has been brought to my attention in this next image.

The answer to the J.R.R. Tolkien's riddle is just simply: EGG and then we realize in the above image that if you and I break an egg or if it is broken from the outside then life ends. However, if an egg is broken from the inside it then begins life. 

Let's contemplate this for just a moment and bring this to our very own lives. Most of us look outside of ourselves for everything. We look at the outside for God, Religion, Support, Love, Acceptance, Understanding and many other things that we think we need to have in order to sustain a happy successful life. What we are missing is the fact that all of this comes from deep within us and we have everything we need within us.. we just need to nurture and tend to our inner relationship.

Let's look at the fact that the egg is the result of new offspring being hatched from one state of being to the next. In other words, it has to come from it's mother and then has to be in the egg a certain amount of time and then when it's ready then the hatch-ling is born and then LIFE starts! 

So when you really look at the Egg Yoke (the yellow part) that is a symbolism of LIFE! So as I am contemplating this it leads to me to want to look up the meaning of YELLOW in aura's. So here is what I got from this website: Click Here

YELLOW AURA COLOR MEANING: Relates to the spleen and life energy. It is the color of awakening, inspiration, intelligence and action shared, creative, playful, optimistic, easy-going.

So of course this makes me even more curious because when you think about enlightened beings such as Jesus, Buddha, Isis, the Egyptian's and any other pantheon of God's painted they are painted with a Yellow illuminated disk at behind their heads. So I Google search meaning of Yellow and what comes up is the meaning of yellow "Bible" and here is what I got from this website: Click Here

Gold or Yellow: Symbolizes the Glory of God ; divine nature; holiness; eternal deity; the Godhead; Purification; majesty; righteousness; divine light; kingliness; trial by fire; mercy; power; His Deity; Glory.

It's just amazing the symbolism of Gold in scripture and in this riddle above we talk about the yoke which is the treasure box without hinges, key or a lid. It's so apparent that we are talking about this amazing Golden essence that is within. That this Golden Yoke is the seed within us that as it flourishes it then eventually cracks through it's limitations and breaks through it's vale to be born into a new awakening. This even looking into the interpretation of  the aura color shows that this in Aura's has to do with the awakening of an individual.

Here is where it get's super interesting though because if we go into: 1 Peter 1-7 it says: 

"These trials are only to test your faith, to show that it is strong and pure. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold -- and your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold. So if your faith remains strong after being tried by fiery trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world."

So in this scripture we are told that our trials are a test to show that we are pure and strong and our testing purifies us much like fire tests and purifies GOLD. The treasure that gives life is tested! So very much like Pearls and how they are created through agitation, here we are told that through our own challenges in life we are being tested and purified so that we can have a GOLDEN heart! This way we will be illumined with LIFE and flowing with the Glory of God throughout us. This is all done through the trials and tribulations of LIFE!

Therefore, as we grow and expand, let go, live life with compassion for ourselves and others, act with kindness, give, receive and ask for forgiveness we are then learning to become centered and allowing our consciousness to grow until we break out of our SHELL (symbolism of our limitations) and then our GOLDEN treasure is then broken out of it's Treasure Box and the limitations are broken!

So what is our true shell? What is holding us back from our fullest potential? Well that is very simply our thoughts and our feelings that make us feel smaller then someone else. Our thoughts that make us feel insignificant to God or others, to our dreams or our desires. These things bring us life and these things that inspire drive in us and passion in us are also the things that if they are not present take the very life that is within us away from us. As we allow ourselves to feel not good enough we then become the outside source that is breaking our shell and slowly creeping in to kill our inner golden treasure. 

This very essence of letting our treasure be killed by an outside source is done by allowing ourselves to be overpowered by another person's truth, not living authentically, not speaking out truth and not giving our inner world the LOVE it needs for that YOKE to blossom and grow into the growing hatch-ling that it is destined to become. When we feed this SEED love then we allow it to blossom and break free of it's cage and allow it to grow into new levels of experience and existence. When it is not nourished with love then it slowly cracks the shell and therefore this allows for the influence of outside sources to destroy the natural process of birthing for the YOKE. This therefore stifling the growth of that soul and preventing it from being it's full "LIGHT" self. 

This is stated clearly when it is said in: 1 John 3:9

"No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God's seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God."

So we transform ourselves and allow our YOKE to grow into it's next form through LOVE and just like a mother would tend to her eggs (children) with love and caring we must look after our inner divine seed that is within all of us. This is our truest gift from God... and this is why we want to work very hard on clearing our our inner world. Paying attention to our emotions, our thoughts. Not just about what we are doing to each other but more importantly what are we doing to ourselves?
