On a cold morning a couple of days ago, through the window of my warm house, I saw a lady looking through the recycle bin of every household. She was collecting plastic bottles.
I admired her for earning her livelihood by working hard at this job instead of begging for help. Wanting to help her in some way, I went outside and gave her some money. She was delighted with my unexpected gesture and gave a big smile of gratitude. She protested that I didn’t have to do this, but I insisted.
Thank you to my Guru for teaching us values such as kindness and compassion because this act brought me a lot of happiness.
You always receive more than what you give.
