Be first

We always look to others to change, however, it all starts within us.

Kindness, empathy, love, understanding, calm and joy come from within us not from others.

If we are the example, that is how things change in the exterior world, as we always manifest our own reality. If we believe that the world is bad it is, if we believe it’s good, it is.

Be first, change within and be the example…don’t wait.

The uncomfortableness of kindness

We do not know how to accept kindness.

We feel have to reciprocate.

We expect a burden.

So we resist.

We think there’s a catch.

Or we feel beholden to the kind person.

True kindness is always without expectations and comes from our soul, from our true essence and we do it because it brings us joy not for a return.

However, we are conditioned into the ‘one good turn deserves another mentality’ and therefore, there is much false kindness, that is really manipulating others as there are conditions and expectations.

This is why we have become uncomfortable with kindness.

The simple way to change this is by example, to only offer unconditional kindness from the heart, where it is our joy that is the focus and not getting something.
