Mawing the lawn – spreading the darma

The first act of kindnes I did was mawing the lawn for my stressed out mother. Which I do often, but this time, I did not only like to do it, I did it very mindful, viewing it as spiritual praxis.It was a much more enjoyable experience than usual.On the same day in the late evening, I was very angry. I felt mistreated by several people and I was hurt by my mother. Anger and sadness were dominating me. I was thinking about locking myself into my room and watching a lot of tv shows. But what I did was this: I printed one of my favourite bible verses and sayings of the budda for ca. 30 times and distributed them during the night amongst the village.My anger and sadness were very weakened by this act of kindness.Greetings,Michael
