Surprised by the Dali Lama

I came up with my concept independent of any holy guy, but happy to see he had a similar one.

Let me assure you in the hieght of the COVID19 pandemic and working at a grocery store, my epilepsy and bipolarness would have made me useless. Long lines and bare shelves lead to many ugly shoppers. I concocted my approach of imagining throngs of customers as if they were the Son of God. I ended up acting in a nice, polite, and calm manner than prior to the lock down.

Although, the really angry folks with expired coupons were still annoyed regardless of how nice I was. Wonder if Mr. Lama ever has similar problems.

For me, this is a similarity between Buddhism and a way of loving your enemy, within Christianity.
