We all crave to live in a more friendly and compassionate world.
We want to feel safe to live and be who we are.
We long for the feeling of community and camaraderie.
So it is important to look at what we are doing to create that kind of world.
Are we being friendlier to others?
Are we expressing our compassion for others, even complete strangers?
Do we engage in rituals and activities that engender the feeling of community?
It is time to stop waiting for others to change, and to make the change ourselves.
If we desire to see a world that is more gentle and kind, then it is time for us to be more gentle and kind.
“Be the change you want to see in the world” is not just a pretty slogan, it is the way to live.
The power is in our hands, we can and do make a difference every day.
We make a difference by being nice when someone else is in a rush and not being mindful.
We make a difference by being soft when others are being hard.
We make a difference by showing our kindness to those in need.
We make a difference with our presence, our words, and our actions.
Even one small step goes a long way to creating a friendlier world.
What can you contribute to a kinder, gentler planet?
