Meditation: May You Be Well
As I ride public transportation in Los Angeles, it’s engaging to watch how people encounter one another. There’s a particular homeless man who works the metro cars begging for money. What’s engaging about him is that he goes through the metro cars dispensing blessings. Some people give him money and others don’t. Unlike some beggars, regardless of the response of the passengers, he offers them a blessing. “God bless you” he repeats. This is said kindly, gently, and with a smile. His face aglow with sincerity as he looks intently at each person. In the often impersonal world of Los Angeles public transit, it’s lovely to have someone look at you intently, smile, and render a blessing. What a generous soul. What an inspiration. Enjoy the journey.
