A wealth of…

It’s strange that we only look at wealth, and conversely poverty, in terms of money.

Why do we never measure or chase a wealth of love, a wealth of kindness, a wealth of joy, a wealth of peace, a wealth of consciousness? If you had a wealth of those things, then there would be no need to measure ourselves against each other, we’d realise we are all the same no matter what.

Why do we not reach out to people suffering from a poverty of kindness, love, joy, peace and so on? Why do we not fill our schools with learning about real wealth, instead of preparing people to earn money?

Funny how human society measures itself. The fact that we need to compare at all is strange.

A kindness

Take a trip to any city or town in most of the world with a week to go to Christmas and streets and shops are packed with people buying stuff, most of which nobody needs.

If only we could transfer that energy and activity to doing a kindness for another human being who is perhaps less fortunate than we are, wow, what a different world it would be.

Perhaps, over the next 7 days, we could choose to just do one small random act of kindness each day, it may become a habit we want to continue beyond 7 days.
