Again the kingdom of heaven is like a man who is a dealer in search of fine and precious pearls, Who, on finding a single pearl of great price, went and sold all he had and bought it.
How important is it to us to find our true selves, find Light, find truth, spirituality, God?
To some, perhaps not at all...but to someone who has had a little taste of such things, like a merchant, who knew his trade, upon finding the real deal, sold everything else he owned in order to purchase it!
When you find the genuine article, you'll do what it takes to make sure it stays within your life. For in simple terms, it is good for you!
