Precious Gifts

This is an awesome story I came across at Emotional Freedom Technique is a sort of accupressure tapping technique that helps clear our pain and stuck emotions to pave the way for healing and moving ahead.

We all have precious gifts within us that are intended to be expressed for the blessing and healing of ourselves and others. The more we express these gifts, the more we grow, heal and experience the abundant life that is intended for all of us. The wonder of love is that it is never diminished in the giving, just as a candle flame can light countless other candles without ever losing it's fire.

So, the story goes...

"There was once a wise woman traveling in the mountains who found a precious stone in a stream. The next day she met another traveler who was hungry, and she opened her bag to share her food. The hungry traveler saw the precious stone and asked if she might 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 only a few days later he came back to return the stone to the woman who had given it to him.

"I've been thinking," he said, "I know how valuable the stone is, but I'm giving it back in the hope that you can give me something even more precious. I want you to give me what you have within you that enabled you to give me the stone."
