The Power of Kindness
“The question to ask is ‘When I do anything, how should I do it?” And the answer is, ‘Kindly.'” A Return to Love, Marianne Williamson
When we’re having conflicts anywhere in our lives, we can usually look closer and find a lack of kindness. A kind, loving intention toward everyone we meet goes a long way toward bringing peace into our lives. Just like unkindness can be contagious, loving kindness also tends to spread. When our intention is to bring love into every situation, we create more positive, loving feelings and interactions everywhere we go.
When we’re feeling anxious and unhappy, we’re usually focusing on what we can get from people and life, rather than what we can give. And giving out loving kindness is an excellent start.
Here are affirmations that may be helpful reminders:
In any conflict, I can always choose to bring kindness into the situation.
I bring loving intentions with me everywhere I go today.
I send love and kindness to my own heart, then send them out to the world.
