Life in itself has no particular value to us, other than as the way we can have experienced, and these events are what we find to be valuable. ... Life obtains its fundamental value from the ability to experience, and this value is not reducible to the material, but the material contains the potential for these experiences.
A beggar found an expensive diamond without knowing the value of it. He strapped it in the ear of his donkey. A diamond dealer was watching this, and approached him, "Give me this stone and I will pay you the money you demand". He said, "Pay me a rupee and keep the stone". The diamond dealer thought of getting it for cheaper, "A rupee is too much, I will pay 50 paise". The beggar said, "No worries, let the stone be in my donkey's ear" and started walking. Diamond dealer thought that the beggar will give it to him for 50 paise anyway.
Meanwhile, another diamond dealer bought that stone for 1000 rupees from the beggar. The first diamond dealer was shocked and shouted at the beggar, "Oh idiot! You just sold the diamonds worth crores, for a thousand and you walk happily."
The beggar laughed after listening to him, "Who is the idiot here? I do not know the real value of the diamond, so I sold it for a thousand which is a big sum for me. But you know its worth and yet you lost it for 50 paise. How stupid!
Have a Happy Monday!!
