“How you react emotionally is a choice in any situation.”― Judith Orloff
Beggar and the Monk
A monk was meditating in the desert when a beggar came up to him and said:
"I need to eat".
The monk – who was almost reaching the point of perfect harmony with the spiritual world – did not answer.
"I need to eat," insisted the beggar.
"Go to the town and ask someone else. Can’t you see that you are bothering me? I am trying to communicate with the angels”.
"God placed himself lower than men, washed their feet, gave His life, and no-one recognized Him", the beggar replied. "He who says he loves God – who does not see – and forgets his brother - who does – is lying".
And the beggar turned into an angel.
"What a pity, you almost made it", he remarked before leaving.

P.S: What if, one could make a choice to be an angel that one could truly be ??
The potency to be able to extend oneself in kindness to others is in build in each one of us.
Would that make the world more heavenly ?
Is definitely would.
