Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Post Lockdown Everyday Acts


--by Rajni, posted Aug 31, 2020
After the lockdown was lifted in Ahmedabad, India - May 2020, I am again able to go out when necessary, with plenty of kindness opportunities.

My day starts with the prayer “Samastha Lokah Sukhino Bhavanthu,” which means “Let all the worlds be happy,” and thereby all beings in all the worlds.

Save water after hand-washing laundry to flush the toilet. Daily, after doing dishes, save water to flush toilet as well.

Compose inspiring email and send to over 200 contacts every other day. Posting inspiring articles on FaceBook, KS and in an email that I send every other day has become a part of my life.

Feed bird seeds several times and wash/fill bird bath almost daily.

Several times I have donated money to needy people and bought groceries for them.

Made sesame sweets and gave to staff at Utthan (Center for the differently abled), friends and needy people. I appreciate their trust in me and accepting during Covid-19 Pandemic time.

Sent PDF files of quote cards, bookmarks to email contacts, so they can make and give, plus share files with others.

At grocery store let customer behind me go first.

Made some Covid-19 signs to inspire people to wear a mask properly and keep safe social disance. On suggestion, I also made the same sign with Utthan’s name and gave them. Distributed some on their behalf. Gave away many quote cards. I always thank who receives them from me giving me an opportunity to serve.

While going by rickshaw, pay a little extra over the fare, many times. Sometimes, while buying something, pay little extra too.

Paid nice tip to barber and bought some hand towowels for him.

Gave package of candies at supermarket and to friends and needy people as well.

Sent inspiring personalized emails to new contacts and inspired them to join KindSpring community.

Gave books to friend to read.

Gave away booklet on Positive Thinking.

Cracked some jokes and complemented many.

Many of the above kind acts are repeated daily or weekly with the blessings of Sai Baba

I thank Sai Baba for His help and guidance and blessings to make my days filled with RAOK's — June-Aug 2020.

I am thankful to KS sister who helped me put this in perspective.
