I was reminded today that my soul resonates with compassion… and it takes very little to sometimes make a big difference…

I woke this morning feeling off balance, fortunately it’s hot early and a walk on the bay and along the sand flats with budda fixed that..

hmmm off to the mall, so I’m in the line to pay for my groceries when the mum in front of me bursts into tears…. two small children in tow, can’t pay for her groceries… I listen to other shoppers getting impatient and moaning…

so quielty I offer to pay the difference! Not much, $33 dollars. Just $33! I smiled and walked off… as I sat to have my coffee she walked over and asked if she could sit down… yes I said… I paid for a coffee and juice for her littleones… ironically this is where Josie and I come most weekends When we are having dad and daughter time…

but, this moment today made me stop and think… earlier this year I was pennyless… often going days or occasionally weeks without proper food… only one soul offered me support, for that I will always be deeply grateful…

i was listening to this person share their story today… clearly this soul needed someone to just understand in that moment… maybe she just didn’t want to feel shame… but her story plays all over the world, over and over and over… I asked a simple question… how do you cope! The answer was heart breaking…

i think about my own journey, the way I hid my trauma through lies and deception, the shame I felt and the courage it’s taken to own myself… and I knew today I was supposed to be here in this spot to offer a simple moment of compassion… As this total stranger got up, still saying thank you I offered the only piece of advice I believe is true…

we all deserve compassion and understanding, and the opportunity to give a little to help her today helped me too, that she should never feel ashamed of her circumstances…

what’s strange about today’s experience was that I normally shop in a totally different place… and today I was here because I needed to do some preparations for my move overseas…

Fate!!! I believe we are placed exactly where we must be… the opportunity to help others is one we chose… its easy to make excuses and to walk away, or walk past, but deep inside our own souls know that going beyond for others in need is the last hope for humanity…

If we look hard enough we are always in the right place at the right time!!!
