"We shall practice listening so attentively that we are able to hear what the other is saying -- and also what is left unsaid. We know that by listening deeply we already alleviate a great deal of pain and suffering in the other." -- Anonymous

Idea of the Week

"We went to a theatre to watch a documentary yesterday. The audience it attracted was mostly "older" adults..... 70's & 80's. While writing for the film to start. I was blessed to be engaged in conversation with a few different people who shared stories of their youth with me. I loved their energy & loved hearing their stories... I was totally absorbed in listening. Their eyes shone telling me their stories & my heart shone hearing them. I left with happiness in my heart a smile on my face. Everyone has stories to share & listening to them is a kindness gift for both the teller & the listener. Grateful." -- Mish

Comment of the Week

"What motivates my kindness is life's trials and tribulations that I've gone through and continue to encounter that have taught me to be humble and offer a smile at all times, listening ear when needed, services when able, and hug on demand." - Curie

FEED SOMEONE IN NEED
May 25, 2015 - Posted by sweetangellov
My heart is overflowing with so much gratitude and love for my amazing life which is simply filled with lots of blessings, sunshine & flowers.

I still remember that one special day when I had just finished dropping off stuffed animals at the emergency room at the nearby hospital - so nurses can give away those cuddly teddy bears to hurting & sick children.I was on my way home and thought of a nice yummy organic salad for dinner.As I was about to walk into the store, I saw a young man sitting on the bench right in front of the store.

He looked fragile and hungry.I stopped right in front of him with a big smile and "hi my dear, how are you doing?" he smiled back and said that he was trying to sell his flutes so he could buy himself some dinner.I smiled and said "please join me - I'd love to buy you your dinner."

He smiled and opened his arms and gave me a big warm hug and then he said the most beautiful prayer for me before we entered the store... and this became another beautiful moment of heaven on earth... be kind to strangers because you never know you might entertain some angels... ;-)
