I could feel the warmth of the sun on my face and the wind tossing my hair as I let the road lead me. I was relaxed and happy as thoughts of seeing my friend danced through my mind. I love driving my convertible with the top down feeling the gentleness of nature surround me like a cocoon.
Oh, here is her street, I stopped to make a left turn. Even though my turn indicator was blinking the boy driving behind me did not see that I was stopped.
Wham! I was hit from behind with great force. My car was thrust forward about 25 feet, my glasses flew off my face and landed in the backseat. I was stunned, shaken, confused, and disoriented.
A kind man walking on the sidewalk across the street heard the loud crash and immediately ran through oncoming traffic to my car reassuring me that I would be alright. His voice was calm and soothing. I launched into a panic.
He stayed with me, gently talking to me, helping me to calm down. Not only his kind words but his presence was comforting to me. He appeared out of nowhere at just the right time to be of assistance.
When the police arrived, just like that he was gone. His act of kindness meant more to me than he may ever know. Although I was not able to thank him I can pay it forward by doing a kind deed for someone else.
Think back to a time when you did a good deed for someone. Did you plan it or was a spontaneous act of kindness?
Kindness is truly a win-win-win situation. The person who receives the good deed benefits from your help, you feel good for having helped someone and the world is a better place because of your kindness.
Never underestimate the impact of a single good deed or act of kindness.
Oh, yes and did I say kindness is contagious. I feel good when someone does something kind for me, it makes me want to pass the kindness on . I see the happiness and sparkle in other’s eyes when I do a good deed for them.
When H.H. Grandmaster Professor Lin Yun Rinpoche, my Feng Shui Master, was asked what we could do to improve our good luck and create more peace in our world he told us to do one good deed a day for 27 days.
Your good deed or act of kindness ripples out into the world as a positive energy force uplifting all of us. Imagine the impact you could make by doing a good deed or act of kindness for someone every day for 27 days. Not only would you uplift and shift your energy field you would uplift the energy field of those around you.
