there's this scripture that is just oddly appealing to me

"we take no interest in them when they malign us. And we ignore them when they curse us. When they cast shame in our face, we look at them and do not speak. For they work at their business, but we go about in hunger and in thirst, looking toward our dwelling-place, the place which our conduct and our conscience look toward, not clinging to the things which have come into being, but withdrawing from them. Our hearts are set on the things that exist, though we are ill and feeble and in pain. But there is a great strength hidden within us."

That is a beautiful scripture~

Sometimes, on my way to work, I murmur that line from T.S. Eliot,

"Teach me to care and not to care,
Teach me to be still."

When we recognize our strength in our core being we can
stand firm in Love and not be moved.

We can recognize others may not even know what they are
and may have been twisted and hardened by life instead of growing
strong in the Love of Life.

I am glad to see your being strengthened by stillness.

Now, to go so far and connect that unfortunate situation to Christians (even with the disclaimer you gave) is a stretch that might offend some momentarily tired and overwhelmed Christians. That's how situations can get blown out of proportions and out of hand.

You know how some people recommend "unconditional love" ...

I recently read Tara Springett's "The Five-Minute Miracle Discover the Personal Healing Symbols that Will Solve Your Problems". I recommend it!

When I left school at 16 I worked on a provision counter in a supermarket,i was only there whilst waiting for my checks to go through, I am a carer I have always looked after others,
I was working late one day and a group of people came in all dressed up demanding I open certain packets of cheese and meat for them to try.i refused the language that came out of their mouths was awful.
it turned out that they were people with money.and were not used to hearing the word no.
A couple of months later I had finished in the supermarket and was working in a home I was caring for this elderly lady she was so appreciative of everything I did for her she was a joy.her daughter came in to see her the next day she looked at me and put her head down.she was full of remorse it turned out she was one of the group of people that I refused whilst working in the supermarket.
her mother turned to her daughter and said to her I keep telling you always treat people as you would want to be treated yourself.


Namaste

Thank you for sharing this beautiful experience with me!

I think that was definitely karma, finding it's way to the daughter in that situation. And I am so sorry those people behaved that way towards you! I've experienced lots of the same stuff, myself. Lots of entitled individuals who forget that those in retail are human, as well!
