“When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace.” ~ The 14th Dalai Lama
Often times I hear people complaining that the world we live in is full of mean, cold, cruel and negative people. But I really don’t think that’s true. I guess if you look for darkness, that’s what you will find. And if you believe that darkness is all that there is, that’s what you’ll experience. But if you seek the light, and if you believe that the world we live in, is full of good, kind and loving people, than that’s what you will experience.
I am an optimistic. I like to look at the bright side of things. I like to look for the good in people and I like to think that good is what we all want to experience. In fact, I really believe that at the core level, underneath all our fears, doubts, insecurities, negative thoughts and many limiting beliefs, we are all good people. At the deeper level we are all kind, compassionate and loving beings. Because that’s our true nature, that’s our real essence. That’s who we truly are. And I also believe that one of the many reasons why we enjoy watching positive and inspiring videos like the one I’m going to share with you today, is because these videos remind us of who we truly are underneath it all. They remind us that we are all made of love and made to love. And that in spite of all our external difference, we are all one big family. We are all ONE.
Albert Einstein said it so beautifully, “A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
We are all in this together, one big family. And the more love, kindness and compassion we project onto those around us, through our presence, our words, our actions and behaviors, the more love and happiness we will bring upon us. Because whatever we give, life will give back to us ten fold. And if we give love, laughter, kindness, happiness and compassion, that’s exactly what life will give back to us, ten fold…
The world is full of good people, you just have to look for them. And this video is just another proof that they exist.
With all my love,
