“A simple act of kindness always sparks another”
I heard this line when I was watching the recent Netflix film “Klaus”. It was a lovely Christmas film with a wonderful message.
It’s actually similar to the one in Evan Almighty.
This is important. And I’m going to repeat it because I think it’s true. Is this not one way that we can change the culture? Random and simple kindness to the Other because they’re our neighbour. Once we realise that our personal happiness missions only take us so far and end up leaving us unfulfilled, we find that the only lasting joy is focusing on that of others.
The act of self-emptying for another paradoxically fills us and the receiver up with joy! This is “fountain fullness”.
Can you pay one small, simple and random act of kindness forward today?
