eBay Kindness

I’ve been using eBay since 1997, most recently to collect DVDs released as part of the Spiritual Cinema Circle. Not too long ago, a woman posted several that I was missing, all at reasonable “Buy it Now” prices. I snatched them up, one by one, a total of 9 individual purchases, each with its own shipping price. Within a couple of hours I had been refunded $10 by the seller who, while under no obligation to do this, recognized it was silly for me to pay individual shipping costs when the disks could be packaged and sent together. I wrote her a note of appreciation and mentioned the other DVDs I was missing. This was her response to me:

“Hi Andy…I believe deeply that what is given with clear intention and a grateful heart will return a thousand-fold. Spiritual Cinema Circle 2009 Volume 11 featuring “The Shift” with Wayne Dyer will be mailed to you tomorrow via First Class Mail and you should have it in days as my gift to you. Be blessed and know that your kindness created this reality of receiving a gift. And I am enriched by the opportunity of receiving your payment and then giving a gift to you as well.”
