Your acts of kindness are iridescent wings of divine love, which linger and continue to uplift others long after your sharing. ~ Rumi
When we extend the gift of kindness along our way, it does not end when the act appears to have ended. No, it goes on and on in the heart of the one who received our gift of kindness. It causes the spirits of those to whom we are kind to feel the upward energy of our kindness long after we have left our gift “behind”. Kindness is an unending energy which expands higher and higher into the universe and deeper and deeper into the earth upon which we walk. When we think of an act of kindness as something that simply happens between two people or two groups of people, we limit our understanding of kindness to its most elementary meaning. Were we to truly understand the power and energy of kindness, we would, without a doubt, spend more time being kind. May it be so. Namaste
