21-Day Kindness Project: Day 15

A human being is part of a whole, called by us the “Universe”, a part limited in time and space.  He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.  This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us.  Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
– Albert Einstein, February 1950

Pay Forward a Kindness Received:

Our lives rest on the quiet, unconditional kindness of so many people.  We don’t always stop to acknowledge this fact in midst of our busy lives.  Today, think back to a particular act of kindness, big or small, that touched you.  Part of today’s kindness effort lies in the simple act of surfacing that moment in your consciousness.  Then think of a way to pay forward that act, either by doing the same thing for someone else, or a different kind act of your choosing done with the same unconditional spirit.  You might also want to send your gratitude in verbal, written or silent form to the person whose kindness touched you.

Reflection on how if felt to receive kind acts from others is one of the best ways to stay inspired to do the same for people in our lives on a regular basis.
