Inspiration: To be open to receiving others in ALL ways.:)
It has been a few since I last posted, basically because I need inspiration in the external world so I can authentically share with you from my heart. This past week, I became inspired by a homeless man on Broadway.
I have seen the Spanish man for a couple of years now, always digging in and out of various garbage cans looking for "I don't know what." A close intuitive friend of mine suggested that maybe they aren't really so kray kray and possibly really intelligent, just a bid "off". I took this in and looked to see if what he said was correct.
So about a month ago, coming out of Fairway on 74th and Broadway (he frequents the Upper West Side) I offered him some almonds. Needless to say, he didn't have many teeth, at least in the front. He then goes into this long soliloquy of sorts...almost poetic. He said to just stop and say hello when I see him. Interesting.
Fast forward some weeks, and I run into him again, on Broadway...this time 79th street. I offer him some money and he wouldn't take it ( as he was barreling through the garbage). He said if he took the money someone would say he was stealing and then went on again in a profound and poetic kinda way. He then looked at me and said " You look familiar." To which I replied, "We have spoken before." I asked him his name and he said "Just call me the Spanish Man on Broadway."
As I said goodbye to him and walked away I did realize this man was actually quite complex.. He needed a shower, but he was well spoken and courteous. Truth is, we never really know others until we give them, and us the opportunity...What they are thinking, feeling and going through. Maybe he was some kind of "ANGEL" meant to teach me and others a valuable lesson. In truth, we are all spiritual beings, created equal in the mind of the creator, living a physical (or are we really) existence.
Ponder that, and talk to strangers.:)
Have a "wonderful" day.
With Love, Denise
