In the summer, I went to Japan with the group and the tour guide Tanaka received us. Hokkaido has retreated, and Tanaka led us to the beach, where many people gathered in the bow and squid. Everyone came to the party and joined them. You picked up a salmon. I caught a tuna and quickly filled a bucket of fish.
Sitting side by side, everyone talked about how to process the live fish and make them a delicious feast. Just as we talked about it, Tanaka suddenly interjected: “Do you think these fish are the same as the fish on the table? They are not caught because of gluttony.”
I looked at Tanaka inexplicably and asked: “Isn’t it all fish, what is the difference?”
Tanaka sighed and said: “These fish are left on the beach because of the ebb tide. They are the hard-working life. Do you have the heart to eat? It is better to put them back to the sea.”
Everyone looks at each other and knows that the live fish picked up after the ebb tide is placed on the table. It is a life that is ruined. Only by putting them back into the sea and saving the fish in the fire and water is the good deed. Then lift the bucket and you will put the fish into the sea one by one. Watching the fish swim openly, everyone’s heart is filled with unspeakable pleasure.
After entering the night, Tanaka suddenly found us, saying that a shop with friends would close down tomorrow, and would like to ask us to help buy something. The store has to close, that is, the goods have to be cleared, there must be a lot of things to sell at a discount, and you can find a lot of bargains. This busy is worth helping. We thought about it and agreed. The woman in the same company excitedly told about her experience of losing prices in China. She couldn’t help but ask what the store in Tanaka had to do. When she was told that there were specialties, cosmetics, electrical appliances and jewelry, she was very excited.
When I came to the store, I really gathered a lot of people. I chose a car full of goods waiting for payment. We squeezed it in. We quickly found that the goods here were not blood-selling, but the prices of other stores were not. No difference. The sense of loss was born, so I randomly picked one or two small items and hurriedly left the door.
Half an hour later, Tanaka took two big bags of goods out. We asked him dissatisfiedly: “How can the goods in this store not be discounted?”
Tanaka looked at us with a sigh of relief. He said for a long time: “The things here are all genuine, why do you want to discount?”
We don’t know how to answer, but a woman reacts quickly and changes the topic: “Since the price is the same as usual, why do you and other people come here and buy so many things?”
Tanzhong smiled and said slowly: “The shop is about to close, so we all come to buy things, so the store owner knows that he is actually suitable for opening a store. Maybe he will have the confidence to change places and start a new store soon.”
Everyone was staring at it, only to know that the shop that was about to close was not only able to buy cheap goods, but also to buy more things, to give the boss some comfort and encouragement, warmth and confidence.
The ebb tide is that the fish are caught in a predicament of survival; when the store closes, the business is in trouble. When others are in trouble, should we fall into the rocks, or should we reach out to help? Put the ebb tide fish back into the ocean, and go to the shops that are closed down to buy more goods. Tanaka educated us with his kindness, and made us realize that after the ebb tide, there are no more hidden things around, and it is the easiest at this time. Seeing humanity, so you should really do better.
