The joy of giving…
The joy of giving…
Kindness is the genuine act of giving to ourselves and to others. It is the open-hearted warmth that pours enthusiastically from our hearts each and every time we have added to the collective goodness of our world by graciously giving without the expectation of anything in return. Inherently rich with reciprocity, the more kindness we offer to others, the fuller our lives become.
Kindness originates from an internal wellspring of self-love and care. As with all meaningful lessons, we have nothing of great value to give to others until we have first become the embodiment of that which we wish to give. Kindness flows freely with ease once we have crossed the threshold of being kind with ourselves. This takes tremendous courage and perseverance, as it challenges us to rise beyond the pressures we so easily place upon ourselves, and instead encourages us to move into the realm of acceptance and unconditional love.
Kindness is the inherent understanding of the human condition. It is witness to our struggles, but loves us anyway. With empathy as its guide and mentor, kindness leads us patiently away from all feelings of pride and comparison, and takes us instead into the true grace of compassion. With gentleness in our hearts, we practice kindness because it feels good to give of ourselves! Naturally forgiving and found within each one of us, kindness affords us the opportunity to take nothing for granted, and to stay sincerely rooted in what is good for all.
