The Secret of Life

From A 3rd Serving of Chicken Soup for the Soul

The Secret of Life

As the Lord God was creating the world
he called upon his archangels.
The Lord asked his archangels to help
him decide where to put the Secret of Life.

“Bury it in the ground,” one angel replied.
“Put it on the bottom of the sea,” said another.
“Hide it in the mountains,” another suggested.

The Lord replied, “If I see to do any of those
only a few will find the Secret of Life.
The Secret of Life must be accessible to

One angel replied, “I know: put it in each man’s heart.
Nobody will think to look there.”
“Yes!” said the Lord. “Within each man’s heart.”
And so it was—
The SECRET OF LIFE lies within all of us.
