“I have learned silence from the talkative, tolerance from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet strangely, I am ungrateful to these teachers.” … Kahlil Gibran
True kindness asks for nothing in return. It is not meant to teach lessons, and we certainly have no right to decide who is deserving and who isn’t. Kindness is not what you give, how much you give, or who you give it to. It is who you are. A truly good person who gives freely and unconditionally.
Many people think that to be naive or weak. Well, we live in a complicated world, one that believes in return on investment, one that is never satisfied, one that always has conditions.
The simplicity of selfless giving gets lost because it asks for nothing, requires nothing in return. Not a good business plan.
But that’s the beauty of kindness. It’s not a business, it is remembering who we are.
There are countless people in the world who at times act in unkind ways. Perhaps we meet them on a bad day. Perhaps their lives are in turmoil, and they could really use some compassion. Perhaps we see them when we look in the mirror.
Kindness should never act with conditions. Kindness should never ask, “Are you deserving of my kindness?”
Kindness reflects the inner beauty, and mindful compassion that will always lead a person to a life of kind acts.
It is who you are.
Share your loving kindness with others.
Have a great day everyone!
