Today I finished teaching a Reiki Master’s course. I was a little sad to see it over as it was my first Master teaching, but also pleased to see how Jules had evolved with taking her final step on the Reiki ladder so to speak. I left her house on a high, filled with love and gratitude.
On the way home I needed some milk (nothing like mundane tasks to bring you back down to earth eh?) so I popped to my local shopping area and decided to have a look in one of the charity shops. On the children’s rail was a football shirt, which I picked up. I then approached the manager and asked if they had many in and explained that a group of us were visiting Palestine and whilst there one of our group is organizing a football tournament for the local kids and as such we are collecting football tops. The manager promised me she would set them to one side for me and told me to pop back in on Saturday to see what they had. Whilst I was there I thought I would look at the books. As I went up the steps a lady approached me.
“I couldn’t help overhearing that you are going to Palestine, can I ask where?”
So I proceeded to tell her a little bit about the trip and what we are doing there. She opened her bag, took out her purse and pressed a £20 note into my hand to spend wherever I saw fit , “to help.”
I stood open-mouthed. This lady had never seen me before in her life yet trusted me with this money to help others. I was overwhelmed and didn’t quite know how to react apart from of course thanking her and saying “I wish the world was full of people like you.”
So today my heart has been full of love and gratitude, and a massive THANK YOU to Maggie for her random act of kindness.
