Trust The Meandering

A  L  O  H  A !
 Leave some cracks and 
gentle, open spaces 
in your day, so as 
to allow life's magical 
mystery to enter. - 

 - Trust the meandering 
paths of Spirit. 

Turkey Vulture, N. Calif
One day Buddha and his friends 
were walking through a village
When an angry person 
came up to him 
yelling and shouting insults.

But Buddha was unruffled 
by these insults. 
He remained calm, 
exuding a feeling 
of loving-kindness. 

Later, his friends were still 
agitated by what happened
and asked Buddha about it. 
He answered:
 If you give a 
gift to someone, 
but they did not 
accept the gift, 
to whom does 
the gift belong?"

 "The gift would still belong to 
the one who brought it."

"Yes replied the Buddha. 
"When we do not get 
insulted and angry
 in return, 
curses remain 
with the giver
just like that 
gift unaccepted"

Thank YOU
          Fondly, cloudia
