Kindness begins within and expands outward.
“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.”
Every thought, word and action sends waves of energy throughout the Universe. Kindness, given without demands or expectation, is never wasted. When you see your life as an expression of the Divine, your actions will naturally be empowered by the presence of love.
Being kind doesn’t mean that one needs to be a doormat. In those instances the giver sometimes feels drained or unappreciated. When energy is lost during the process of a given action, it indicates that the mind is attached to an outcome. The more profound the disappointment, the stronger the attachment.
Tend to your own state of balance. This self-directed kindness will help you bring the best version of yourself to all of your interactions. You always have a choice – choose to speak softly and without judgment, choose to give of yourself for the joy of it, choose to be a light in the darkness.
Today my intention is to be led by love.
