A night we were walking by the middle bridge in Basel, and a guy approached us. I knew he was about to ask money, but I asked before him that Can you give me 10 Franks? 😬😃.. Surprisingly he gave me all his coins… Around 10 euro…and started to walk away. But I called him again and gave the money back. He didn’t know English. So I had a cute German translator 😃😃 my a good friend, Jenni. And after I offered him apples. But he showed his wrists and forearms with wounds of the syringe which he used drugs. And said I don’t need food rather I need money to buy drugs. First truthful guy ever met on the street😝😝. Then I started to ask (with translation😌) him things and invited him for free yoga and all.. He said he has got Jesus with him. So I said to do yoga plus Jesus. He was smiling. And I said to him you can think more and You are welcome whenever you want to do yoga!! Actually, we had quite kind of long chat..This beautiful girl also was so kind to me to translate my all wanderings as well kind to him as well…!
Later we walked and stayed an open bar where they provide fire on the table. Kind of barbecue on the dining table..long table and charcoal have put in the middle of the table. And the table made just for the barbecue which is interesting actually!!😃 But at that time there was not any food. But everyone was drinking, smoking and chatting. All looked very unhealthy, but they were happy. I told my friend. Look I don’t smoke, or drink as well generally I’m a vegan. But I don’t mind sitting here around this kind of people. Maybe sometimes we can be the sun for them what they are searching to remove their remaining darkness. Which they are relying on the smoking, drinking and eating animals. Etc.. Searching for happiness which sounds they found it, but it is not gonna last as they are torturing their body allot..but they might be interested to know there also possible to attain health and happiness without torturing our body. But as long as we are not ready to enter into their world our wisdom (the blessing God gave us as gift..awareness of many things) will be buried just inside ourselves..if we are a vegan, don’t smoke, or drink it doesn’t mean we have to communicate with only this kind of people.. We have to be the free spirit not only just for us, we should allow the freedom to others also to approach us as well!!
What we are learning from this… We think those drug addicts, drunkards etc are violent and or has to be neglected… But once when we approach with love, care and compassion they are just starting to open their heart… And as well become friendly and peaceful… Everyone deserves attention, kindness, compassion, and care… Whether he is a drug addict, chain smoker or drunkard etc..We never know their stories…!!!
