Seeking of hidden wisdom

Sometimes it's not the wealth you have but what's inside you that
Others need....

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.
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 good 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
"I've been thinking," he said. "I know how valuable this stone
Is, but I give it back in the hope that you can give me something even
More precious. Please give me what you have within you that enabled
You to give me this stone."
