  • "In the south of the square you can redeem and trade them. But there will be compromises." she said

    "Oh yes ofcourse, ofcourse, the vouchers are tossed then in the basket, there? " I asked

    "Yes you write your name and your kindness down and toss it in the basket."

    " And then what?"

    "And then, How."

    Three small, thatched booths made of what looked like driftwood from farther down the shoreline, with an old and weathered man in each of them stood before me.

    "What is the significance of there being three booths?"

    "Are you serious? What is the significance of you being here right now? Don't preoccupy your mind." she paused and said. "Choose your choice then I insist, remember there is no rush here it doesnt even look like they're moving in those booths does it and theres no line formed."

    "Well yeah to be honest it felt, no seemed like something was wrong with my eyes or my concept i guess. There are a lot of people here, just as us standing back. I dont see them walking over, or standing in line, but those baskets are filling."

    "Right, if you focus in though and watch they'll move from their bodies and they'll flash their eyes as they pass you. Dont you see it?"

    " Yeah thats what i mean its rapid and moves weird i dont think i want to get near it. And i dont think its just their eyes. So should i just go then? I feel like I have to rush."

    " No rush is not allowed in here. Im telling you there's no hurrying, no rushing, no busying and a limit imposed on how far you let your energy vibrate. You're just seeing the same thing in a different way at a different pace, conceptually, like in your head."

    "Yeah k im just going to have a minute then."

    "Ofcourse, please, you know you can leave it to the cats if you like. Now those three are significant, but you'll have to wait until they've arrived back from fishing, and there will be compromises."

    "Ofcourse, ofcourse."
