Never turn a sale peddler away.

Happiness is to see others happier and knowing your sharing is being accepted. As I was sipping my afternoon tea, I received a text message from one of my secret admirer who took my learning seriously. She wrote, "Hey dear!...I was sitting there and someone came and ask for donation and I thought about u, 'Never Turn A Person Away And Always Give Them A Chance'. I hope u are hip hopping away..c u soon.." I replied her immediately, "U have done right my dear. Always give hope to someone who approaches u".

Life is always full of rejection and if someone smiles and offers a support, hope and dream might be created. It is not easy to peddle sale in the open or to seek for a charity course from the public. Many people snob at these approaches which they consider as a nuisance and rejections are extremely high. For those who peddle on the street are not wrong either. After all for the sake of survival one has to start some where to work. Whenever I being confronted by such peddlers, even I might not purchase or make a donation to them, I will offer them a friendly smile together with a sincere thank you. That little gesture can motivate them to continue to live and survive. This is the understanding of wisdom in life to help another person to live. I am glad my lady friend has learned that facts of life too.

This happy thought by Buddha, "Thousand of candles can be lighted from a single candle. And the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared".
