Day 68: Inner Kindness
“When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace.” – The Dalai Lama
It is easy to show our love and kindness towards others when we have a strong feeling of love for that person. It is not always easy, however, to show love and kindness when we are angry, upset, hurt or frustrated with ourselves or with another person. When this happens, how or where can we find the love and kindness to create and develop that inner peace and happiness? The answer lies deep within and becomes a choice of forgiveness, acceptance and understanding. Forgiveness towards ourselves or the other person, acceptance of the present moment and the understanding that we are all the same. We are all human beings looking for the same inner happiness and peace.
Kindness to Self, Others, Strangers & Our Planet:
Where can you look to find that inner happiness and peace? What can you do today to feel that you are loved and cared for? Look within. Treat yourself with love, kindness and encouragement and know that you are always cared for.
When we love ourselves, kindness and kind acts will flow like a river to Others, to Strangers and to our Planet.
