Stories of Kindness from Around the World

A Leap Of Faith


--by astrocrazy2005, posted Sep 1, 2007

We have been conditioned to look at life from the eyes of fear and scarcity.  We think that every stranger we meet is ready to do some harm to us, that they are scheming to rob us from our wealth.  This attitude helps us when we are kids and learning the ways of the world, but as adults we are responsible for our own perceptions.

I do agree that world has mass murderers and thieves but it also has ample kind people who can help us in our life.  Using my intution as my life saving aid, I took a leap of faith last year.

In the past one year, I have made a conscious choice to be bit more freindly and trustworthy.  It has worked wonders.  I have made friends in the oddest of places  and I am quite grateful that they are a part of my life.

At least sometimes let us look the other way -- the way of love and compassion.
