No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
When we feel a bit lost or worn-out, sometimes it helps to turn the focus away from ourselves. This might sound contradictory, but it actually makes a lot of sense.
Usually, when we are immersed in our routine – whether it’s pleasant or problematic -, we have a tendency to skip kindness and generosity. We want to take care of our to-do list so that we can feel free from those pesky tasks we keep thinking about 24/7. This consumes most of our energies. Pretty soon, we realize that we can’t concentrate on what we are doing – much less on other kinds of activities that have nothing to do with work (doing yoga, reading a book, etc.). We think this is because we are too worried, or because our brains are getting old.
The solution to this lack of focus? Wish others well!
How can you help those around you – yes: even those people you don’t like that much! – feel better, and BE better? Take time to listen to what other people want in life and pause to wish them well. Don’t just say it: mean it. Wish well with your mind, heart and soul. This kind of support is invaluable, and is the easiest and most effective way to acknowledge the hopes, dreams and projects of everyone around you. Wishing well to someone means that you are taking active part, however briefly, in their visualization of a good life.
Try it. You will soon realize that your mind is much clearer, and that your energy level is higher. Wishing well to others brings kindness right back at you – this is one of the most positive energies you can receive! Co-create positive things, and you will receive blessings too.
