Every one of the people standing in this line, waiting for a meal, is exactly like you and me. They are human beings, experiencing their lives through their thinking, being
kinder to themselves and others (with love, compassion, generosity, etc.) when in a better state of mind, and being less kind to themselves and others (with anger, jealousy, judgment, frustration, etc.) when in a lower state of mind. Every single one, just
like you and me, has loved and feared, has accepted and judged, has given and taken.
