Day 319 - Kindness
is not about me alone.
For my personal development is dependent
upon many others, especially those
who I interact with for food, work, safety,
security, energy, health, friendship and love.
is therefore about all of us.
It’s about us working together
and looking after each other,
in ways that enable us all
to live happily, and to grow, together.
is about us reaching out
and giving to others, so that
we can all be safe and well.
And yet, in our world we see so many
living and dying in shocking conditions.
We have been taught
to strive for more, put ourselves first
and hold onto everything.
But in our interconnected world, this
approach only serves to make life less secure
for ourselves, for our children and for others.
Kindness is much more
than a nice thing to do.
It is our emotional, rational and practical selves
acting through initiatives, responses and
actions to uncover who we are
and see what we can become.
Kindness is uncompromising and demanding.
It causes us to make choices.
It takes us out of our comfort zone.
It makes us look at the needs of others.
It enables us to understand who we really are.
Kindness is the heart of personal development.
It's time to put kindness on our curriculum.
It's time for kindness policies to drive our
workplaces, schools, universities and governments.
And it's time for us to build
a collaboration of kindness in our world,
in our community, in our family and in our day.
