Live Kindness

Standard

This morning a colleague was sitting in my office sharing ideas for a new historical display. She wants to highlight women in our organization who have done random acts of kindness. “I know there are those who have done great things and have accomplished much for the community, but what about those who have shown acts of kindness that have never been acknowledged? That’s what I want to capture with pictures and words, those individuals who live their kindness,” she said.

Wow. What a great gift. I know she’ll dig through the archives and come up with wonderful pictures of women from our community helping others across the U.S. and the globe, as well as right here in our own hometowns. After she left my office resonated with the passionate energy she has for this project. I soaked up that energy thinking about the little things people do for me and wondering, had I acknowledged them? What about my own actions? Am I doing anything for others daily? Have I let kindness become enmeshed and ingrained enough so that its in all actions? Do I live as part of the Spirit Collective knowing that the person in front of me is my sister or brother? And you? Are you living your kindness? If so, in what ways? We are more than this…

“I am bred of heaven. And though earth grows more distant in me, I am meet for the worlds you have appointed for me today. Show Your kindness through me. Write welcome upon my face. Set invitation adrift in the tides of my blood. Fan the deep ovens of my faith to flames til I am warm to the touch, right for feasting in a world of famine…

May love give you access to the higher instincts within you, those we share with divinity, that we may have lost in our distractions…”                ~ David Teems
