Henry James, American Author (1843-1916), wrote the following, which I keep on my desk: Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.
Kindness to ourselves and others requires self-discipline. We can be—and often are overly—critical to ourselves and others. My belief that, “God made each of us and all of us with a mind, body, and ‘little piece of God’ since the dawn of humankind,” can be the fundamental rational for this exercise of genuine compassion, inwardly and outwardly.
A wonderful way to start and finish 2015 is to practice kindness, compassion, love, empathy, and a real day-to-day respect for humankind, the earth, and God.
I wish everyone joy, cheer, and a life overflowing with kindness in 2015 and onward toward Heaven on Earth.
