Just a Thought, The Hippy Trail

Just a thought, The Hippy Trail.

Back in the 60's and 70's when most people who read the revival were probably not born. The world was a simpler place, and travel for people was easier then it is now. People in the west started to search for answers to many questions. One source was to seek answers by listening to the Yogic Masters and to travel to Northern India to find enlightenment. Here is my thoughts on one such enlightenment;

There was a small village just off the main hippy trail, people who passed through the village usually did so because they were lost. On arriving at the village they asked the way, as it was near nightfall, the villagers (as was their nature) usually offered them shelter, food and breakfast in the morning, before they went on their way. Asking for no payment, as i said, "it was their nature,"

The village soon became known to the hippy fraternity as a place to get a free meal and shelter for the night. Soon it became a place on the hippy trail and attrated many visitors.

One day a Hippy stopped their and asked for food and shelter for the night. he was shocked to be told, "No! No more free food and shelter for anyone".

On asking why, he was told, so many hippy's had come this way that the villagers were having trouble finding food and shelter for their own people in the village.

The Hippy again said, "Why can i not have a free nights food and lodgeing, you have done it for many others in the past".

To this the villagers replied, "That is the other reason, Once we gave freely, as that was our nature to help strangers. Now strangers are demanding a free nights food and lodgeing as a right",

It's so sad that people always end up taking advantage of good natured people and their good deeds.
