This is an old chat we had some time ago, which we still haven't solved.... What can we do?
If you get the case of a taxi-driver ,where you pay with 100 dollars, and he doesn't give you your change back,he is bigger than you,big muscles,slightly drunk and beside him is a poisonous green-eyed Boa. The sweaty taxi-driver has a strange tattoo on his chest of a machinegun,of naked men and pigs doing all type of unpleasant things with one another, and he looks violent, you can see the guy means business,
and the green-eyed boa looks at you definetely , as if it were his wife ready to defend the taxi-driver, and bite you and kill you...and follows your every movement with its Angry green eyes...
Would you just step out of the cab and NOT have a fight for a few dirty dollars?
would you simply ask him kindly to give you your change back, although you know he definetly won't? (after all you are a member of Infinite Love Forum ,aren't you? although this is a case of self-defense...)
get out of the car and cuzz him
get out of the car and see if you can go buy a gun and get him in the next corner?
Wanting to kill his damn god violent Snake?
Ask him once enough to be kind to you and give you your money, after all you have a family to support?
Play on his ego , and say to him he is a great guy,and good looking although you are about to vomit just looking at him?
You see the guy takes a look at you to see how wishy washy you are ,and you simply smile...
With tranquility you tell the taxi-driver that you will not let yourself be intimidated by primitive mafia practices which are sinking the credibility of the country in its economy to a global recesion.. You tell him you are a man compromised with truth, after all you cannot be blackmailed by force etc.
In the middle of your speech you pay the man exactly what is read in the meter of the taxi,and you give him an excellent tip---more than what he was charging---to shut his big mouth up.
You don't know what you will do because it still hasn't happened to you( Oh! how "tres zen of you!")
You declare yourself enlightened( I don't know how this can help, maybe the guy will look at you and say, Oh really? Thanks for the 100 bucks! you are a generous man!) Which would be your choice?
Can you maybe think of another alternative Khi?
Would the above meditation or any of the others, help in this case Khi?
Please give me a hand....
Thank you mate!
