What does the refusal of the young man to give up his wealth say to us? Here he was being offered a position as the thirteenth disciple. He had obeyed all the commands of the law. Yet he walked away, sadly.
I realise that because too I am not prepared to give up everything I too walk away sadly. Yet is it not the will, the lack of interest in ambition or home enough? To wear the essentials of some small property lightly disregarded but necessary like washing teeth.
We all walk away, sadly because there is one thing we will not give up. Is it, for me, still ambition?
But all this is idle speculation. Look upon the clouds swirling around the full moon. That is the reality of the instant.
