I do virtually everything randomly, I don’t plan or plot anything I create out in advance. I live my life in much the same random way. So all my acts of kindness are random.
I live on a tree-lined avenue, in a neighbourhood where people nod and smile to each other, but we do not get to know one another. However, the other day I noticed a lady I had seen on the bus walking towards town. I was driving to the train station and the bus hadn’t turned up that morning which is why I was driving, and I guessed that was why the lady was walking. I pulled over and offered her a lift, which she accepted. Now I have given her a lift a few times and once I was walking into town and her husband pulled over and gave me a lift. It’s nice when you do a good turn for someone and it ends up coming back to you. That’s the balance of Karma I suppose.
Another time I was waiting at the train station and the train I normally catch was delayed. There were a few people standing around a looking stressed. On the platform I wait at, they run trains to two destinations and I saw that the notice board showed that the next one wasn’t mine. There was a man in a suit standing next to me talking on his phone having an animated conversation and avoiding eye contact with me. Just then, they made an announcement that the next train would pull in on the opposite platform. The notice board did not update. I thought that this man may want that train and I tried to get his attention by looking, smiling, waving, all the time inviting them to look over, but all the time he kept talking and ignoring me. It turned out he did want that train, and he missed it. He stormed off still talking on the phone. I tried to do him a good turn, but he wasn’t having any of it. This is a true story, but it is also a good analogy, sometimes we go through life unaware that all around us are people trying to help. Try to remember that when you are caught up in your worries. Most of us care and most of us want to help.
