“Whatever you think the world is withholding from you, you are withholding from the world.” Eckhart Tolle
“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 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 this stone is, but I give it back in the hope that you can give me something even more precious.
“Teach me what you have within you that enabled you to give me this stone.”
What keeps us withholding from the fullness of life? An old story?, a belief?, Scarcity, that we don’t have enough to share or give? We must become aware of this within us and learn to detach from it. In doing so, we will find the precious stones and wisdom we are searching for. We will discover that when we are attached to nothing, abundance is infinite.
