Kudos to these young people for demonstrating compassion (1) and drawing our attention to the homeless situation that is so prevalent on Gaia.
Lao Tzu has spoken of this, of humility (2):
“Now you are being given some very strong situations in which to clear out, in service, in humility, the old ways of violence, of hatred, of greed and financial greed and control.
“And these are important steps and understand, it is no different than my going to serve the Emperor or working in the field.
“My friends, you do both and you are richly compensated for both; perhaps not in money but in shifting your planet to a place where the money is not the issue because in unity and equality all are attended to, no one goes hungry and the riches are shared.
“This is also what Gaia teaches you. She does not just share her riches with some and not with others. She is truly generous with all of you.
“All you need to do is to look, observe, see, accept, receive, and then give back.” (3)
Previously these students had performed on the streets without a camera, which is what gave them the idea to make a video.
Before filming they asked themselves if they could film a person in distress and put it up on the internet without asking or knowing their history? The answer was quite clearly, “No,” which is why they hired an actor to play this role.
Here is their video, “Three German students surprise a homeless guy” and below is their explanation and an interview with the actor who was the homeless fellow.
The rationale behind the video:
Thank you to Saleh for drawing my attention to this.
(1) “The ability to Love and serve without judgment. To be able to fully understand and heart feel another’s situation without entering or assuming that cloak. The understanding that another has a chosen path and that we can only offer assistance and Love. We cannot complete another’s journey for them, for that would be theft. Tenderness.” from The Great Awakening, by Linda Dillon, 2012
(2) “Twin of piety (reverence for all things). The ability to be truly grateful for the many blessings bestowed upon each of us. The knowledge that alone we are incompetent but united with One we are All. Humility is necessary for all works and sharing of service.” from The Great Awakening, by Linda Dillon, 2012
