Caring for each other

This may be a corny notion, but one of the disciplines I have tried to adhere to most days is to reach out to at least 2-3 people I know that may be struggling financially or emotionally as a result of the Catastrophe.  A reading from my daily meditation the other day included this:

"Acts of love (also) multiply.  We can inspire at least two people right now through a loving deed or thought---ourselves and the nearest friend.  More importantly, any act of genuine kindness is guaranteed to create a ripple of kindness that will finally reach the other side of town, maybe even the far side of the universe."

It's not hocus-pocus, in my experience.  Give it a try, and, if you feel like it, email me about it.  Love hearing those kinds of stories.

  1. Your loving kindness has certainly reached the far side of this planet!
