This week we are focusing on the virtue of kindness by observing it and performing acts of kindness. The dictionary defines kindness as the state or quality of being kind, a kind, considerate, helpful act. According to Aristotle’s book “Rhetoric”, it is referred to as a virtue and defined as being “helpfulness towards someone in need, not in return for anything, nor for the advantage of the helper himself, but for that of the person helped”.
Before actually thinking about kindness specifically, I had not given it very much thought other than noticing when someone did something nice for another. After these few days of thinking of kindness and looking for it, I have a developed quite a relationship with this thing we call kindness. I have certainly discovered more kindness than I was aware of and I love the way it feels to practice kindness. Awareness and focusing our thoughts along with the law of growth produces a powerful result. This assignment has taught me much more than about kindness and I can apply this knowledge to my continuing transformation of myself as I merge with my future self. It is amazing that this is only the second week of our thirteen week makeover. Will we recognize ourselves after finishing this incredible process?
I always keep my promises!
