An Invitation

Invite a homeless person for a cup of coffee

An invitation:

Invite a ‘homeless’ person to walk with you into a coffee shop. Buy them a cup of coffee.

Be engaging and present with this person. Even if it is only a warm smile.

Notice how everyone gazes and reacts to you. How does this make you feel?

After you pay. Walk out with this person. Say thank you and goodbye.

Be acutely aware of how you feel at this moment and the rest of the day.

An intimate suggestion on how to personally deal with our own issues regarding the homeless.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
