The Lydians were an ancient people who lived in what is now Turkey
during the Iron Age.
The Lydians developed a way to determine the quality of gold
with what is called a Lydian Stone
–flat pieces of basanite.

X

A piece of gold would be dragged across the stone
so that it leaves a scratch mark.
The color of the mark was the objective determinate.
If it looked red, or coppery, the gold was not pure
and
was an alloy.
If the mark was bright yellow, the gold was pure.
The Lydians would make charts for color comparison.

X

The purity of the gold became visible to those
who knew what to look for
and
who had the capacity to discern
what was pure gold.

X

Note images above:

TOUCHSTONE

The Lydian Stone has become known by another name:
touchstone.
You touch the gold to the stone,
and
then the value becomes apparent by its mark.

X

A

touchstone

is used by contemporaneous jewelers to determine
if a gold metal is pure gold or an “illusion of purity”
which is an alloy masterfully blended
with just enough “truth” of gold
mixed with copper and other alloys
to make it appear to look like pure gold.

X

The lesser qualities of gold
are mixed with copper and other alloys
to make it look like gold, without being pure gold –
that is the difference between 14 karat and 24 karat.  

X
X
X

The word,

touchstone,

has evolved over the centuries,

but still

“suggests a simple test of the authenticity

or

value of something intangible.”

X
X
X

The word/construct of

touchstone

is a

beautiful metaphor

to discern/align/sense intuitively/analyze
what is

truly authentic,

rare,

a sincere gold standard

in other areas of life other than gold metal:
the mark of genius in diverse fields of creative exploration;
the mark of personal character;
the mark of inspiring leadership;
the mark of an anam cara in one’s life;
the mark of a revolutionary paradigm shift;
the mark of courage
and
so forth.

X
X
X

The fabricated/commercial platforms
of social media
is an alloy
and
a substitute of true intimacy.
Social media platforms
provide a stage/a theatre
to perform
“an illusion of truth” without a touchstone
to test the authenticity of its”truth-telling”

X

The SONICS of TRUE GENIUS is SENSED.

X

It is critical that those

anointed

with

GENIUS

step UP

and

educate/demonstrate

WHAT the sound of pure crystal IS

and

WHAT the look of pure gold IS 

and

WHAT the touch of pure love IS 

and

WHAT the taste of authenticity IS.

Souls are STUNNED

by the absence

of humanity

and

civility.

We are cheated and deceived by the fraudulent,  false FB/Twitter lives
that people create for their “audience”.

X

Showing UP with empathy
and
awareness

IS

living
an authentic and bountiful real life.

X

Yes, it is a risk to enter the realm of living – the uncertainties of the unknown!
Yet, one ONLY blooooms by loving and being loved with integrity.
Oh, the adventure of LIVING
is to BECOME/ WELCOME
ALL the things YOU are!
LIFE can breathe and RISE with the LIGHTHOPE of civility.
