Compassion And Gratitude

The next time you are confronted with a condition or circumstance you judge to be problematical, express your immediate gratitude not only for the solution but for the problem itself. By so doing, you instantly change your perspective on it, and your attitude about it.
~Neale Donald Walsch

“Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.” ~Dalai Lama

Have a wonderfully, blessed day!

Being Of Service

Being of Service

Today, ask yourself and the Universe this question:

“How can I be off service today?”

I always smirked at this sentence, because I did not understand it. Being of service does not mean, giving yourself and all of what you have to benefit others, in an act of self-sacrifice. Being of service is actually bringing and creating value. If you solve a problem, issue, question or can give insight from a different point of view someone might have never seen before, you are being of service. The higher the quality your “being of service” is, the more value you bring to the world and in return you will receive value – may it be through connection, or in best case scenarios, monetary compensation. If you can find a way to make “Being Of Service” your job, combined with your inner most passion, nothing – and I mean nothing – is impossible.

Kindness

I survived an abusive childhood filled with fear. In one particular instance I was so scared, that I thought the only option I had was to run away. I was 16.

So I did, not knowing where to go, I walked into the mission at our train station, a place that was a refuge for those homeless and stranded. If they had space, they allowed you to stay, for a night. There were no beds, just blankets and sleeping bags, a cup of hot tea and a slice of bread with jam, but for me it was a refuge, a safe place.

An older, homeless man, dirty from living on the street, with un-kept hair, and a rucksack that held everything he owned showed me warm smile, an ear, and patience. He made sure I was safe, and allowed me to cry, why he sat there, keeping me company.

To this day – I am 42 now – I will never forget the sweet kindness this man showed me. He gave me what he had, which was empathy, something I did not know from my home. A bigger present than anything I every received before.

I have no idea what happened to him. After that day, I never saw him again, but I am grateful for his presence, however fleeting, and always will be.

May you all find someone to share your space, when you are in need.

Meaning Of Struggle

Do you believe in your dreams? Are you willing to fail for your dreams, so you can succeed?

 

Every moment, every breath, every struggle has a meaning. What the meaning is, is entirely up to you. You assign the responds, the direction. It only takes a minor shift to change your life in a more profound way, then you can imagine at this very moment.

Choose wisely.

From A Point Of Love

happysoul

 

Share and act from a point of love. May this love stem from  empathy, compassion, the desire to share a burden of another, or the need to uplift. If it’s origin is love, the truth in your action will shine a bright light upon it, more powerful then the mere act, and bind together with the acts of others with the same intend. This combined intend of love moves mountains, creates worlds, changes everything.

Have a wonderful day!
