Think as a camera which tracks an act of kindness as its passed from one individual to the next and manages to boomerang back to the person who set it into motion.
Stand with us in spreading the love! Together we can make a difference!
“Everything that lives, lives not alone, not for itself” William Blake
The everlasting question “Why we are here on Earth” might have an answer. Just as we entered the world with nothing, we are destined to leave with nothing. There can be only one real reason for us being here, and this is “To give yourself to others and to contribute in a meaningful way”.
Our world is in the midst of great change. People are trading in money for meaning. Lawyers who used to judge people by the size of their pocketbooks are now judging people by the size of their commitment to others, by the size of their hearts. Teachers are leaving the wombs of their secure jobs to nurture the intellectual growth of needy kids living in the combat zones we call inner cities. People have heard the clear call for change. People are realizing that they are here for a purpose and that they have been given special gifts that will aid them to realize it: an abundance of mental ability, boundless energy, unlimited creativity, a storehouse of discipline and a wellspring of peacefulness. It is simply a matter of unlocking these treasures and applying them for some common good.
We should make it a priority to change our world view so that we stop seeing ourselves purely as individuals and start seeing ourselves as part of the collective.
Realize that the most noble thing we can do is to give to others. The sages of the East call it the process of ‘shedding the shackles of self.’ It is all about losing self-consciousness and starting to focus on a higher purpose. This might be in the form of giving more to those around you, whether this means your time or your energy: these truly are your two most valuable resources. It could be something as major as taking a one-year sabbatical to work with the poor or something as minor as letting a few cars pass in front of you in the middle of a crushing traffic jam.
Truly, the life moves to a more magical dimension when you start striving to make the world a better place. When we are born, we are crying while the world rejoices. We should live our lives in such a way that when we die, the world cries while we are rejoicing.”
“A little bit of fragrance always clings to the hand that gives you roses.” The meaning is clear — when one works to improve the lives of others, he indirectly elevates his own life in the process. When we take care to practice random acts of kindness daily, our own life becomes far richer and more meaningful. To cultivate the sacredness and sanctity of each day, serve others in some way.
