69 Day Giving Challenge – Day 16

I’ve been in Texas for a few days this week. Today I took a cab ride with a gentleman named John. We started chatting when I noticed the unique messaging on the roof of John’s cab (see photo).  I enjoyed that he took the time to write positive notes to himself and his passengers.  We began chatting.  Touching on some light subjects at first, but we soon began to delve into deeper topics like meditation, Buddhism, Jesus Christ, and the time Jesus had spend in India. We even discussed the path to enlightenment during our drive. He gave me book recommendations. He gave me insight to help my meditation practice. He gave me recommendations on authors. He even gave me a meditation on Yoga from his iPad. We really enjoyed each other’s company. At the end of our ride, I gave John a crisp $20 (on top of my tip), and told him about my little giving game. His face was priceless.  Man, I love giving.
