On Meeting Strangers with Openness: Zen Buddhist and Baha'i

"The Whatness"
Meeting strangers with openess while I travel is an invigorating experience. It reaffirms that kindness brings joy and exploration can expand personal horizons.

My taxi driver here in Dallas last night is a member of the Baha'i faith. I learned more about Baha'i in 20 minutes than Wikipedia could ever have taught me, including a personal experience of an incredibly generous response to loss and suffering.

Ruben, who just brought my breakfast into my hotel room now is professional and kind despite working a job since 6:00 this morning; one that I would run away from.

Where and when today can I offer kindness and the opening for another person to expand their horizon of what they thought was possible in the world?
