This week is a week of Random Acts of Kindness, as dedicated by the RAK foundation. It’s a week that we’ve got the opportunity to focus all our actions on doing good in the world. This month we’ve been talking about love and our hearts, and I think random acts of kindness fit in here really well.
“You don’t pay love back; you pay it forward.”
Lily Hardy Hammond
Lily’s words are inspiring because love should inspire all of us to do good for others, to spread love and ultimately love makes the world a better place.
Just like love, our spiritual beliefs should inspire us to do good in the world. I don’t think there are any world religions that actually encourage doing bad things, but some teach that your bad deeds will cause certain things to happen in the future. So what it comes down to is all of us, each in our own way, working to make the world a better place.
This week as you do random acts of kindness, remember that you’re doing it not because you have to or because it’s the “right thing”, but because you are grateful for what you’ve received and what you will receive and the joy that you feel when you bless someone else.
