The true definition of a rare gem!

Nowadays,the use of the words rare gem to describe a figure in the society, or loved ones gone in their biography notes, cannot be over-emphasized!
Agreed,every human being has his or her own unique quality that distinguishes him or her from the rest  of the world,thereby making that person uncommon.
Do we really understand the qualities of a rare gem?
Do we realize that our characters in life should be related with the attributes of a rare gem?

Gemstone 1;JASPER
Jasper is the first of the twelve foundation stones!

 follow?

The things that haunt us the most!

Life is about choices. Some we regret, some were proud of. Some will haunt us forever.

And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.

There is no refuge from memory and remorse in this world. The spirits of our foolish deeds haunt us, with or without repentance.

Humans have a huge capacity to carry pain and sadness. There are things that haunt us our entire lives; we are unable to let them go. The good times seem almost effervescent and dreamlike in comparison with the times that didn't go so well or as anticipated!

A lot of people, when they say 'forgive and forget,' they think you completely wash your brain out and forget everything. That is not the concept. What I think is you forgive and you forget so you can transform your experiences, not necessarily forget them but transform them, so that they don't haunt you or handicap you or kill you.

And as a true athlete, mistakes haunt you forever.

Much of the stress and emptiness that haunt us can be traced back to our lack of attention to beauty. Internally, the mind becomes coarse and dull if it remains unvisited by images and thoughts that hold the radiance of beauty.

Exceptionally hard decisions can deplete your energy to the point at which you finally cave in. If you mentally crumble and degenerate into negative thinking, you'll magnify the problem to the point where it can haunt you.

Don't ignore the past,but deal with it,on your own pace.Once you deal with it,you are free of it!
You will be free to embrace your life and be a happy loving person because if you don't,the past will come back TO haunt and keep coming back to haunt you!
