Stories of Kindness from Around the World

The Clarity of Kindness

--by Chifundo, posted May 7, 2009

"We must be the change we wish to see in the world," said Gandhi.

Well, today I had two exams, so not much spare time, but afterwards I went and bought a sealed bag of cookies and gave them to a random person who got on my bus. She looked hungry and like she'd had a hard day. 

I am struggling at the moment. Faith and religion do not seem to mix in my head, and I have many conflicting views.  Sometimes decisions are so difficult. But I suppose without some confusion life would be boring!

One thing I am sure of is the importance of kindness. With kindness we can change the world, and work towards happy peace. Never stop trying to change the world!  Sunshine and smiles, I hope everyone has had a wonderful, fulfilling day.

You develop faith in yourself by meeting life's challenges with courage and joy; you deepen your faith by keenly observing how every experience carries with it, more insight and guidance; you will learn to trust in your faith and the truth it reveals to you in your every moment. Re-legion, literally means: to re-connect; when, or how, did anyone, or anything, disconnect! ? ! By following your intuition your faith will move mountains; neither hope, nor despair for disconnection can replace your actual knowing from within. When "confusion", knocks on your door, make tea, get some treats, and fluff the pillows.
