The Pearl

Pearl-in-shell_squareFrom Soul Provider, Step 2, Detachment by Edward Beck:

Once upon a time there was a monk traveling down a road who had a pearl in his sack.  In the village through which he was traveling there was a man asleep who had a dream that there was a monk who had a pearl in his sack.  When he awoke, he interpreted his dream to mean that he was to have that pearl.  So he ran to the road, found the monk, and said, “Give me the pearl.”  The monk said, “What pearl?”  And the man said, “I had a dream that you have a pearl in your sack.”  And the monk said, “As a matter of fact, I do.”  and he looked into his sack and there, between an old prayer book and a crusty piece of bread, was a pearl.  The monk took it out of his bag and held it in his hand, saying, “Do you mean this one?”  The man said, “That’s it!”  for the pearl was a big as the monk’s fist.  The monk freely gave the pearl to the man, who snatched it and ran home.  When he reached his house, he locked his door, pulled down his shades, put the pearl on a shelf, and sat and stared at it.  But the more he stared at it, the more confused, the more restless he became.  Until, finally, he could stand it no longer.  He ran back to the road, found the monk, and gave him back the pearl, saying “I don’t want it.”  And the monk said, “Well, then, what do you want?”  The man said, “I want the wealth that gave you the power to give the pearl away?”
