“This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.”
– Dalia Lama –
I have just come out of a deeply relaxing meditation and this is the first thing that came to mind, so I wanted to share it with you.
I have a very simple thought to share with you today. Be kind to others. Be loving to others. See everyone around you as a mother or father, an uncle or an aunt, a grandmother or grandfather, a sister or a brother, a cousin. Treat everyone as if they are a family member.
When we treat others with loving kindness, we treat ourselves with loving kindness, because, in essence, we are all one, we are all connected.
The Wake Up Project
I recently came across this fantastic project called the Wake Up Project when I went to see the Dalia Lama a couple of weeks ago and wanted to tell you a bit about them.
Their mission is to celebrate and inspire kindness and wisdom in modern life.
What does it mean to Wake Up?
According to their website, ‘It means to wake up your natural capacity for kindness and wisdom. It means savoring the beauty of each moment and expressing your unique gifts into the world. All this, while remembering to lighten up, laugh, dance and celebrate your precious human life.’
Join the Kindness Revolution
In an effort to inspire people to carry out random acts of kindness, you can order a pack of kindness cards that they will send to you for free, which you can leave, anonymously, whenever you do something nice for someone else.
How it works
What can you do?
You can order your kindness cards here.
So, what random act of kindness are you going to carry out today?
Sending you lots of love, hugs and light,
