We are One

“Do you realise that when you give a shilling to a beggar you are giving it to yourself?
Do you realise that when you help a dog over a stile you yourself are being helped?
Do you realise when you kick a man when he is down, you are kicking yourself? Give him another kick, you deserve it!”

~ Wei Wu Wei

I do enjoy Wei Wu Wei’s spiritual down-to-earthiness and English wit. It always makes me stop and reflect.

Let’s all slow down and choose how we want to be in the world.

  1. My younger brother bought lunch for a homeless man recently. He (my brother, that is) doesn’t always come across as kind or generous, but I remember even when he was little that he was troubled by homelessness. So when my mother shared this with me the other day, it moved me.. and it made me wonder if I would be willing to show the same compassion if I were in his shoes.
