There’s a man who sits on the corner a couple blocks away from me every morning. I drive past him everyday, sometimes giving him handwarmers, sometimes change. After a lone hike in the woods today I was going to stop for breakfast, bout then realized I have a kitchen full of food waiting at home. Perfectly good food that “doesn’t sound good” enough to eat. So I bought breakfast from Hardees. A cheddar biscuit, hashbrowns and a coffee and I gave it to the man on the corner. He said “thank you”. He ripped open the bag immediately and began to eat as if he were stranded in the desert and discovered a pool of water. I’d never seen anything like it and I’ve never had to experience that type of hunger in my entire life.

Some will say his own choices are what led to his position without even knowing anything about him. What about me? What did I do to deserve a luxurious and comfortable life? Nothing. I was born into a life without suffering. And I’m beginning to think the only way to earn what one has is to share with those who have less. Because no matter who you think you are or what you think you’ve done to deserve what you have, you really aren’t shit.

“A man is born alone and dies alone; and he experiences the good and bad consequences of his karma alone; and he goes alone to hell or the Supreme abode.”
