The Gold Offering

Many are the stories of people who found gold and it changed their lives while others spent unpleasant moments that only remain in the stories. This precious metal has a value for which people invest time and effort to obtain it. In special cases the same gold is presented to people to be had.

It is said that gold appears in dreams revealing the place where it is found with all possible details, like a movie, but everything is a trap or a decoy.

Something of the same value should be given in return to the earth and many have already repented in this was of the acts they have committed leading them to perdition and misfortune.

In a family of four orphaned brothers all were professionals except the youngest who had no profession; his older brothers supported him. They lived near a huaca (Sacred Place) and remains of Inca constructions.

A day came when the brother had some very strange dreams where he dug up many gold objects and took the loot but did not recognize the place where he was. Every day this dream called him until he went to ask an old man about the place.

He told him that he must ask in his dreams what was wanted in exchange for taking out this loot. Ignoring the old man, he went home and, as usual, spent the day with his friends.

When night came, in his dreams he remembered the words of the old man, and the movie of his dreams became clear. He walked with one of his brothers towards the huaca that was in the place. Using a knife he began to kill the older brother, pouring the blood on this land and as a result the land gave him the booty.

It had asked his brother in exchange for the booty and if he told anyone where he was he would pay. He told his brothers what he had dreamed but not the location of the booty. The brothers laughed and said: “Why didn’t it ask for you as an offering?” They criticized him a bit, that he did nothing productive with his life.

The younger brother loved his brothers so he decided to start studying, taking as an example his older brothers.

After a few years they found out about a murdered person in this place. Apparently someone had accepted the proposal made by the gold and escaped with the treasure.

It was well known in the town that the young man who performed this act had a life of pure disgrace because of the ambition he had.
