The Power of Kindness
Kindness Makes us Happier. The most effective practices for living a complete and abundant life, according to great masters such as Guru Nanak, Krishna, Jesus etc are Devotion + Service. And when we choose to practice kindness we give ourselves the authority to step into that same mastery of the prophets of yesterday.
We choose to become the prophets of today amongst all of the chaos and stress of the times. Kindness eases the pressure.
For everyone. When we choose to serve, to be kind, we tap into our angelic self, the very inner perfection that makes us Hue-man (meaning Light Mind) this is aka the spiritual heart, our individual Oneness with God or Consciousness.
When we do something kind for someone else, we feel good. It's simple. It's like powering up. Tapping into our Infinite Source of Bliss.
Kindness as spiritual practice tunes us into the mantra of the heart which is ‘I Am'. So kindness is one of the most effective ways of turning the beads on the rosary of Life.
Each repetition of kindness connects us to GOD, our Inner Awareness, thus transforming our lives and Life on this planet into a living prayer. Think of it as the more Kindness we activate as a society, the more heaven we produce here on Earth. It is not something outside of you, it is right here. And how much we experience it depends on our commitment to serve each other.
Kindness truly is a super power, a great gift and responsibility that can be neglected if we let our head become clouded with thoughts of separateness and lack mentality. A commitment to kindness upholds the freedom of All and clears the mind so the heart can lead the way.
On a biochemical level, it is believed that the good feeling we get from being kind is due to elevated levels of the brain’s natural versions of morphine and heroin, which we know as endogenous opioids.
These biochemical responses in the brain cause elevated levels of dopamine, so we actually get a natural high from service, often referred to as ‘Helper’s High’. It is a gift from the Creator and a reminder of Who We Are. So go out and get high today. Serve somebody with kindness and bring a little heaven to earth.
