24. Kindness

Two years ago I wrote this: “This writing club has been a priceless gift for me. It is true value for my money. Ten dollars a year has given me much pleasure. I’ve enjoyed the friendships I’ve made. The kindness and open mindedness lifts my spirits. “

It holds true today. You listen without judgment. I can be myself; being who I am, how I am and all I am. You want the best for me. Your smiles and interest in my life, inside and outside the club show me I matter to you.

You allow my heart to be open. Sometimes when I read about an act of caring similar to your acts of kindness, I will often find myself in tears. It touches places in my heart when I have had a similar experience. This I believe is a reminder of Oneness as we experience true connection with one another.

Less is more so it would probably have been in my best interest to leave my short story there. Saturday morning still contemplating the word kindness, I had music inside and the words and music came out like this. BEING KIND; KIND IS LOVE; LOVE IS KIND; BEING KIND; BEING KIND, KIND IS LOVE; BEING KIND.

That reminds me of a story. When I was changing my life, going from working in the school system, to my life as I knew it falling a part, then being on welfare, I decided to change up my life and I took a course where the first two weeks were evaluations and career planning exercises. I’m talking in depth assessments as to what career would suit me best. At the end of the two weeks, I could not wait for the result and when it came, it was a symphony conductor. Me who could not read notes!

So I’d like you to indulge me and we will sing my new song together. I will conduct. We will have our symphony here. Just as I am a symphony conductor of my own life every moment in concert with all that is, we will now; no have to’s but if you would like, we will sing BEING KIND all together:

BEING KIND GFE

KIND IS LOVE FED

LOVE IS KIND GFE

BEING KIND FED

BEING KIND GGC (G’s an octave lower)

KIND IS LOVE CCD

BEING KIND. EDC

I thank you.
