Hmmm… Interesting

by Lisa Donovan

So my husband got hit up by a panhandler today in a grocery store parking lot.  He had a hardluck story about his pregnant wife being stuck in a car (which was not visible to my husband), in the horrible summer heat, out of gas and not able to get home (which was, according to this gentelman, forty or fifty miles away). 

It is entirely counter to my husband’s nature to give away our money, as we have none.  But, in a feeble attempt to possibly right our karmic scales (as demonstrated by recent events listed in previous blogs: dying pets, car accidents, ailing parents, etc.) my husband emptied the change from his pockets and happily gave it to his new friend, let’s call him “Louie”. 

The result: 

Louie - “That’s all you got?? Man, it ain’t like I’m just tryin’ to get around the corner!  You sure you ain’t holdin’ out???”

Husband - (to self) “How did he know I had three dollars in my wallet?”

Hmmm, interesting… What does it mean when a weak attempt to create karmic equity is openly ridiculed?  Is my husband enjoying this?  Is he sewing the seeds of karmic disruption by holding out on the panhandler with nice athletic shoes and knee high, green stiped tube socks with an invisible wife/out of gas car??  Only tomorrow will tell.
