Small kindnesses make a difference. You may never know what that difference is. You don’t have to. When we act from a place of kindness we are acting from a place of love, for everything and everyone. We are acting from our heart, and sweet beings, when you act from your heart you can never go wrong. The heart holds no judgment. It doesn’t ask if it is deserved. It doesn’t ask if it is right or wrong. Your heart doesn’t care. It recognizes another being whether it is a loved one, a stranger, an animal or even our beloved planet earth.
I remember a small kindness that made a difference to me recently and it was about a kindness. My father relayed a story about himself as a child to me. It was a beautiful story of a little boy of six, who found a schilling in the cold cellar. It was after the depression in England and money was scarce. A schilling was worth twelve pennies and he received one penny for his allowance. Twelve pennies! Can you imagine?
My father, sweet child that he was, decided to treat his family to fish and chips and sweets. He joyfully brought his gift home to his family. His mother asked where he got the money to buy this and he told her he found it! Can you imagine his delight?
His mother asked him where he found it and he told her in the cold cellar. The money had dropped out of his father’s pocket onto the floor. It was a week’s worth of payment for window cleaning in the village they lived in. His mother, bless her heart, graciously accepted the gift. She knew it was from his heart. He never got into any trouble.
And as to the small kindness I received? My father told me that I was just like his mother, kind and loving. It meant a lot to me because I know how much he loved and admired her.
Sometimes the small kindnesses are acts of love and sometimes they are words of love. Sometimes a kindness is to overlook a misstep and make it of no consequence in that moment. After all we are all only human.
The Group agrees-of course they do. They inspire me as I write my stories, helping me to find the words to convey a message of joy and love. But today they want you to know how important it is to remember to be kind. It is a generous act, a benevolent act, an act that ripples out across the universe covering all timelines. You make a difference every time you are kind.
You must also be kind to yourself dear ones. When you are kind to yourself you will find that it becomes easier and easier to be kind to someone else. You will have no agendas and you will not give a thought, to act upon the urges of the heart. Your heart always knows what can be done and you get to choose whether you act upon that heart impulse or not.
The moment can be lost so quickly, that moment of love that your heart wants to share and once gone, it cannot be retrieved. But never fear, there will be another and another and another. You are all on planet earth together, playing your game of forgetfulness and many of you are waking up! So many are waking up to the universal pulse of the universal heart that wants to love, that knows only love. It is everywhere and all you have to do is open your heart just a little bit more and choose an act of kindness in every opportunity that appears.
It is God work you are up to and you my dear ones are the gods. You are the angels. You are love made manifest.
