The precious Stone

Posted by

The precious StoneA 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 & asked the woman to give it to him. She did so without hesitation.

The traveler left, rejoicing 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 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.”

Wisdom is in giving selflessly what pleases the other because in that lies true happiness and deep sense of contentment. For any relationship to succeed, this is the key. Radhanath Swami goes a step further to conclude that it is worth going through tears to give pleasure to others. Because, to the degree our actions are selfish, it cannot satisfy the heart. A selfless act is that in which we are truly giving ourselves for the object of our love.

    Selflessness can also be interpreted as “thinking of myself less but not thinking less of myself”. Something that we can all contemplate on.
