A wise woman’s stone

A wise woman, who was traveling in the mountains, found a precious stone in a stream. She reverently placed the gem in her bag. The next day she met another traveler who was hungry. 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. The wise woman did so without hesitation…

The traveler left, rejoicing in his good fortune. He knew the stone was worth enough to give him security for a lifetime. But a few days later he came back, searching for the wise woman. When he found her, he returned the stone and said “I have been thinking. I know how valuable the stone is, but I would like to exchange it in the hope you can give me something much more precious. If you can, teach me the secrets you have within you, the power that enabled you, without hesitation, give me this precious stone.”
