Random Acts of Kindness and Opportunities to Serve
We know that cells breakdown to molecules, molecules to atoms and atoms to pure energy.
Thus, the entire universe is one flowing stream of vibrating energy, with no separation between those things that we perceive to be manifest into a state of "form".
Even though it looks to our minds eye that we are individual and separate, we are all actually totally interconnected with each other and with everything.
This is why it is impossible to hurt someone or thing without hurting yourself.
On the flipside of that, you cannot help someone (or thing) without helping yourself; and, all things being connected, every act of kindness no matter how large or small, actually causes a reverberation of positive energy, that is felt by the entire world! There has been a catch phrase that has become very trendy of recent years, "random acts of kindness".
While these "random" acts are good and positive, why would one desire to do acts of kindness "randomly"? Instead, for greatest positive energetic effect for the entire world, one should practice continuous acts of kindness.
The word random seems to give the connotation that the acts of kindness are happening on a lottery basis.
Everyone should be kind to everyone and everything else (animals, the environment, etc.
), continuously! The Golden Rule, takes on a deeper meaning still, when you realize that by practicing loving others (without exception, unconditionally), and truly loving yourself, you come into alignment with the most powerful vibrational energy of all.
This is not mere philosophy; science can now measure these energies.
The vibrational fields of energy associated with the emotions exists in the same way that gravity or radiation exists in the unseen realm and has an affect on everything.
It is when this loving energy is tapped into that the greatest good happens not only locally, but universally.
Meaning that, the high vibrational energy affects the entire stream that flows, and has the effect of raising lower energies.
This subject is written about at length in David R.
Hawkins' book "Power Vs Force" (recommended reading for sure!).
Take on every task in the spirit of absolute joy.
Everything that is done humbly, joyfully and without complaint is a great kindness to the world.
When you are at your work place and you see a mess that needs to be cleaned up, or some work that should have been finished by a fellow employee, don't grumble, "it's not my mess, I'm not cleaning it up", instead, clean the mess, finish the job, whatever it was; do it joyfully and without telling anyone else that it was you who did it.
Look upon these times as opportunities to serve.
It may sound a bit cliché but the truth remains, "change the way you look at things and the things you look at will change.
" When you begin to seek out opportunities to serve, what you are truly doing is helping others, and by definition, helping yourself, which will cause great goodness to flow into your own life like magic.
It takes practice, but you will soon find it is well worth the effort.
Like energy attracts like energy, see what happens by practicing Love, Peace and Kindness (the highest vibrations) on an ongoing basis.
