Searching for What We Already Have

Randolph Hearst, founder of a mighty newspaper dynasty, invested a fortune in collecting great works of art, which he then stored away in vaults. He heard about several other masterpieces and decided he had to have them. So he sent his agents abroad to track then down and purchase them. Months went by and eventually his agents returned to tell him that they had finally succeeded in finding those art treasures. And do you know where they found them? They were in Hearst’s own vaults. He’d purchased them years before, but because they had no meaning for him other than as investments, he had forgotten about them.
But isn’t that much like human nature? We spend much of our lives in a quest for things we hope will bring us what, in reality, we already have – if only we stopped long enough to realize it.
