About 12 kilometers from the city where I live has a Thai Buddhist center, where whenever possible, I visit them because I am very well received by the members.
Today I will tell a story that happened to me.
Because I do not have a car, I always walk. For longer journeys, I use the bus or train.
The child sang and I found it funny. Smile. I looked at the paralytic who should be between 40-50 years old and smile too.
Plunged into thoughts, I tried to imagine what he would have done in another reincarnation to have to be trapped in a wheelchair in this lifetime. According to the law of action and reaction, much of our disease has a cause.
Three times I asked him to repeat: “It is tut mir Leid, ich verstehe sie nicht. Bitte wiederholen “.
I used to think he wanted money. With difficulty I could understand. By my modesty, I will not write your words here, which were an offense to any woman.
I replied, frowning.
The man returned to his place.
After a few stops, a small gentleman entered, who should have been around his 65 years. He had a rusk dog on the line.
Standing with the dog, the old man stood on the other side. The paralytic, who does not know good manners, came again to touch the dog. The owner put his hand on the idiot’s chest and told him to leave the dog alone.
A little cheeky, the alienated guy ignored the old man, pushing him. He pushed the cripple back and slapped the idiot’s face, and even as he sat in the chair, he began to tiptoe the other. It was a bad fight. I, from my seat, ordered them to stop. The driver stopped the bus and managed to end the confusion, ordering the old man to sit on the third part of the bus, away from the man in the wheelchair.
After three stations, it was finally time for me to get off the bus.
Of course each case has a different case. It does not mean that all the cripples were violent in the past.
We are free to plant whatever we want. We can plant thorns or daisy. They are our daily choices.
Sin, in my conception, does not exist, but acts that generate a return. So we walk, going through various reincarnations until we reach perfection.
