KINDNESS: How To Live A Soulful Life

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. ~ Mark Twain

Kindness is an act of generosity.

Kindness is an act of the deepest love; the most gentle, tender, sweet, caring, compassionate love.

Kindness is soft and gentle and yin. Sometimes kindness is very yang and assertive.

In history throughout many eons in many, many traditions there are Protectors from evil. Think of Hindu traditions. Think of Kali and Durga who fight against the darkness. They protect the light, preserve the light. They fight for the light. Sometimes these kind of powerful forces of nature, forces of Heaven and Mother Earth generate kindness. Kindness can generate protection.

Kindness is a quality of life that is most desired and definitely needed. Most people actually may not have awoken to the fact how kindness on themselves could bring huge change in their
lives. It could bring balance. It could bring harmony. It could change the way they relate to others and transform some of the most challenging relationships.

Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again. ~ Og Mandino

Kindness is in words. Kindness definitely is in interactions; how we speak, react, respond, what we do, what we don’t do. Sometimes not responding is an act of kindness. Sometimes we desperately lack action in order to generate kindness. Sometimes we just miss the opportunities, when we do not speak out. We think it is not important what we have to say. Yet if we had spoken out, somebody could have received balance, guidance, safety, protection and more. This may sound all theoretical or hypothetical.

I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers. ~ Khalil Gibran

I invite you to take a moment to reflect how do you feel about yourself as a first stop. How do you feel about yourself on a day to day basis? Are you happy with yourself?

If the answer is yes – wonderful! If the answer is no – right away reflect how do you think about yourself. What are the beliefs you hold about yourself? Are these kind thoughts? Are these loving thoughts? Do you believe in yourself, in your capabilities, abilities, in your contributions you make in life, in your working life, family life, in your friends circle. If you do not believe in yourself, who can believe in you? This is where kindness can start: in believing in yourself.

What would the world be like if everybody believed in themselves? Not in an egotistical manner thinking they are over the top, fabulous, brilliant, smarter than others. Just in a level headed way, knowing equally what my strengths are and what are my opportunities. What would it be like? What would it be like if you held this vision of yourself, this perspective of yourself? As we head toward the end of the year with approximately a six-week mark to complete the year, I invite you on this journey of kindness, to observe how many kind thoughts you have about yourself? What are the ways in which you could be kinder on yourself, because it all starts with “me”.

Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love. ~ Lao Tzu

When we have greater acceptance of who we are and how we are, who we are in this world we will almost automatically be kinder on ourselves. We can let ourselves off the hook, release some of the judgement, self criticism. This will automatically radiate out and emirate out to those around us. We can release some of the judgement and criticism about others then also.

May you have peace in your hearts and in your mind. 

May you fill your heart with kindness, in your words, in your actions. 

May your mind, your consciousness be filled with loving, compassionate thoughts of yourself, others and the world. 

We need more kindness, more compassion, more joy, more laughter.

I definitely want to contribute to that. ~ Ellen DeGeneres

I love my heart and soul.
I love all humanity.
Join hearts and souls together.
Love Peace and Harmony.
Love Peace and Harmony.

With love, light and kindness,
Master Mirva
