Kindess

An act of kindness does not have to be a luxurious trip to the tropical islands. It does not have to be the next big winning lotto ticket. It doesn’t even have to be a five star cooked dinner. An act of kindness can be as simple as sending a smile, holding open the door, or reminding your loved ones how important they are to you.

Imagine you and Loki can’t stand each other, you think he’s pompous and arrogant and he thinks you are weepy because you are too emotional. You start to write in a newspaper giving advice but under a pseudonym. Loki, who wouldn’t admit it, likes to read them and it’s captured by the kindness yet honest advices that the writer offers. One day he decides to send a personal letter to the mysterious writer, under another name, and you two start to exchange letters, falling in love with one another.

After a while you decide to meet in person, imagine your faces when you see each other, the arrogant and the weepy. 

The universe is one being. Everything and everyone is interconnected through an invisible web of stories. Whether we are aware of it or not, we are all in a silent conversation. Do no harm. Practise compassion. And do not gossip behind anyone’s back - not even seemingly innocent remark! The words that come out of our mouth do not vanish but are perpetually stored in infinite space, and they will come back to us in due time. One man’s pain will hurt us all. One man’s joy will make everyone smile.
