Gems Of Love, The Wisdom Of Kindness And A Printable
--by penny4them, posted Apr 2, 2018
I'd like to share story about a little random act of kindness I did this week. I took a glass container of Kindness Blessing Scrolls to a local indy coffee shop to leave out for strangers to take. I believe that these little gems often are discovered by the people who need the message, like a fortune cookie sometimes.
I told the cashier what they were and she said she'd have to check with the manager. I explained that there was nothing self serving or promotional about them, just little gems of wisdom for customers. She was very suspicious and took my email address and glared at the beautiful --well at least to me-- jar that I set beside her register. It made my heart sad that she didn't share an ounce of my enthusiasm.
Sometimes doing random acts of kindness takes an act of courage, many times they don't turn out the way I imagined. (Sometimes they are even MORE magical.) But ultimately--the most important thing to me is that I do them, regularly, practicing kindness, strengthening my kindness muscles and trying to learn to let go of of mental outcomes and simply trusting in the miraculous unknowable positive ripple effects. I'm learning.
