A wise woman who was traveling in the mountains found a precious stone in a stream.
The next day she met another traveler who was hungry, and the wise woman opened her bag to share her food. The hungry traveler saw the precious stone and asked the woman to give it to him.

She did so without hesitation.

The traveler left, rejoicing in his great fortune. He knew the stone was worth enough to give him security for a lifetime. But a few days later he came back to return the stone to the wise woman.

"I've been thinking," he said, "I know how valuable the stone is, but I give it back in the hope that you can give me something even more precious.

GIVE ME what you have WITHIN YOU that enabled you to give me the stone .

Dear Shawn,

That was beautiful. Desire and acquisitiveness is a potent combination that can destroy one 's mental equilibrium. The greatest gift that one has is the power to give freely without any thought of obligation or reward. It is divine. It aligns itself to a greater spiritual power that operates and coordinates all life. And the man returned to the woman because this divinity attracted him more than any need for further acquisition.

Great! My spirit rejoiced at reading your story. May there be many more such.
