Stories of Kindness from Around the World

I am Only an Instrument

Being Kind Spring’s Community Member Of The Week ❤️

Maherunnisabahen and her husband Sharifbhai at AMWA blessed me with a shawl in recognition of the kind acts I do. It is the first time I have received one. After seeing tremendous work done by Maherunnisaben and her team, my mind was occupied by AMWA to do some more kind acts to be worthy of getting a shawl. I thank Maherunnisabahen for the inspiration.

The inspiration, and being Kind Spring’s Community Member Of The Week, put me on my toes that kept me busy during the whole week!

Gave more than 150 quote cards, birthday cards, bookmarks and Mindy’s peace dove quote cards.

June 17

I pray everyday for the happiness of all the beings. Samastha Lokah Sukhino Bhavanthu, which means “Let all the worlds be happy,” and thereby all the beings in all the worlds.

Gave slippers, shorts, slippers and groceries to some needy people. Also gave cookies and milk to needy children.

Thanked bank employee for giving me good information about cash deposits in dollars. I also complimented about her appearance and jewelry.

June 18

Went for shopping errands. Gave some quote cards, bookmarks, birthday quote cards, Mindy’s peace dove with quote cards.

Gave tip to rikshaw driver.

Praised friendly shopkeeper who sold me nice blender and grinder.
Inquired to dry fruit shopkeeper about his business. It is 80 years old. His great-grandfather started it. Took his name to make personalized bookmarks.

KS friend and my family gave me some money. They also did not let me pay for my purchases. I donated that money. A 
shopper gave me discount, that money I donated too.

I am thankful to Sri Sathya Sai Baba for blessing me with many opportunities, helping and guiding me to materialize them. I am not the real doer but He is. I am just an instrument in His hand. I do kind acts very often but I do not post them all. I believe in give andforget, receive and remember, that’s what the Indian scriptures say.

I am thankful to KS friend who help me put this in perspective
