It’s For Free

Miracles 1

“When you meet anyone, remember it is a Holy encounter

As you see him, you will see yourself

As you treat him, you will treat yourself

As you think of him, you will think of yourself

Whenever two sons of God meet, they are given another chance at salvation.

Do not leave anyone without giving salvation to him and receiving it yourself.”

–  A Course in Miracles

Today I encourage you to use every human encounter as an opportunity to offer kindness and compassion. Each person you meet and greet with a smile or a compliment is another soul encouraged to extend the gift of kindness to others. Let’s not see one another as threats but rather as vulnerable beings who are just as needy of compliments and encouragement as we are.

Let’s see in one another’s eyes the need for understanding and genuine concern for the other’s wellbeing. Let us afford others a listening ear with a genuine interest in their problems, and give them the time and space to share their woes without the need to judge, fix or intervene in any way. Let’s really hear one another just as we would like to be validated and heard.

Let’s treat our brothers and sisters with gentleness, treading lightly and sensitively, careful not to rub salt into open wounds. Let’s choose our words with empathy to soothe and comfort those who are suffering.

Let’s be merciful as to how it would feel to be on the receiving end of our gestures.

Let’s choose to see all our Earth siblings as vulnerable and defenseless as are we. Let us be kind in allowing our partners and children to express their individuality without fear of condemnation. Let’s not argue but rather find ways in which we can agree. Let’s focus on what we have in common rather than our differences.

There is not much difference in him or her or me. We all want to be happy and avoid suffering. We all want to feel important and matter to those around us. We all want to be respected and feel understood. We all yearn for unconditional love. And do you know what the funniest thing is?

We all have an abundance of these gifts at the ready for distribution. We have the ability to affirm and support one another for absolutely free. It costs nothing to be kind.

So, let’s get out there in a big way and start showering others with a listening ear. Let’s seek every opportunity to compliment and praise. Let’s look for the good in every situation, focus on our samenesses and think the highest thoughts of one another. Let us value each other as innocent and worthy of empathy. You, me, him, her… There’s no difference. 

See how many acts of random kindness you can deliver this week!
