98 year old dobri dobrev, a man who lost his hearing in the second world war, walks 10 kilometers from his village in his homemade clothes and leather shoes to the city of sofia, where he spends the day begging for money.
Though a well recognized fixture around several of the city’s chruches, known for his prostrations of thanks to all donors, it was only recently discovered that he has donated every penny he has collected — over 40,000 euros — towards the restoration of decaying bulgarian monasteries and churches and the utility bills of orphanages, living entirely off his monthly state pension of 80 euros and the kindness of others.
….and now i’m crying.
If someone has a garden with a paper wall kind house and some cherry tree around, and can sit silently for an hour, it’s easy to be zen. But try to keep that behaviour in a supermarket with two yelling kids or during an exhausting day in the work, or maybe in the rush-hour traffic. This is what I call zen attitude.
Words of love are not always kindly words, Iida Toin
