“There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness.” ~The Dalai Lama
The healing power of kindness is amazing, but not many of us realize it. Indeed, just a small act of kindness can have a big positive impact on the world.
With our actions we are shaping our world, and hence the kind of life we are living. Different actions bring different results: an act of anger will bring hatred and violence, an act of kindness will bring love and compassion.
I believe that everyone feels that, when we are kind, no matter how small our acts of kindness are, we experience kindness coming back to us from the whole existence. When we are kind, we feel our soul opening, expanding and embracing the world. In this state of being, we feel transformed, as well as that we can help transform the world. By performing acts of kindness, we influence others to be kind too, and this produces an endless chain of effects, a circle of kindness.
Below is a well-directed short film that depicts how small acts of kindness can make a big positive difference to the way we relate to each other.
Kindness can spread just like a virus–fast and to a great extent. We only need to realize its healing power and use it for own benefit, both on an individual and a collective level.
“As you sow, so shall you reap.” ~The Bible
