Kindness is a high human quality. It is humble and peaceful, and has the potential to save the world.
So if you want to save the world, all you have to do is be kind.
What if I don’t feel like being kind to everyone?
Are certain people not deserving of receiving kindness? Who are you to decide this? Everyone has a spot in them – their heart – that longs for the kindness of humankind.
So there are terrorists and murderers walking around that you might not demonstrate kindness too. But you can at least from afar send them positive energy. Send them love. Because they are so lacking in it.
If we all decide to do this, we can conquer them.
That sounds really wishy washy, and I’m not sure anyone, or even myself, would believe that.
It’s true. It’s wishy washy. It’s airy fairy. It’s weird and wacky. But what else can you do?
The world has tried to beat them in all other ways. It’s the only way left.
All you can do is try it.
Or not. You don’t have to. It’s simply a demonstration of kindness. And if you truly wish to be kind to all, then that is non-discriminatory.
OK, So I’d like to demonstrate kindness to those who most feel don’t deserve it, by simply sending them love and wishing them well. What about myself? How can I receive kindness?
Your loved ones always send you kindness, even if they don’t always say it. They feel it. It is up to you whether you wish to receive what they feel or not.
You can choose to not feel it, and then feel sad for not receiving kindness. Or you can choose to feel it, and feel happy because you are receiving kindness.
Kindness is simply love. And your loved ones do love you.
Be open to receiving their love, even if it is not verbal or physical.
Receive their energy. And then you will have all the love received that you have been giving.
Give love. Receive love. Feel balanced. Feel happy.
