So That Good Deeds Would Spread Out, Like Ripples From a Pebble In a Pond

In high school used to watch a TV action show called, Kung Fu. But I don’t remember many of the action parts. I do remember the interludes when the main character Caine / Young Grasshopper would think back to his youth and his mentor Master Po would guide him.

For Nations Random Acts of Kindness Day, here is one of my favorites.

  • “Young Caine, when I was a boy, I fell into a hole in the ground and I was broken and could not climb out. I might have died there but a stranger came along and saved me. He said it was his obligation. That for help he had once received, he must in return help ten others each of whom would then help ten others so that good deeds would spread out like the ripples from a pebble in a pond. I was one of his ten and you became one of mine. And now I pass this obligation on to you.” – Master Po (episode #15)

May the ripples spread.
