Kindness, Care & Compassion for Yourself & Others
Our brain is made up of genes that have evolved throughout the generations. We are born, we live, we die. Only by helping each other can we survive. Over the years we have become more materialistic, more riddled with problems. We are surrounded by territorial, status and sexual issues. Levels of depression and mental health problems are growing year by year and we seem powerless to stop this epidemic.
Feeling shameful about ourselves is another big block that gets in the way. Do you ever think that if people knew what you were really like, they wouldn’t like you? That there is something bad about you, something that you are ashamed of? We need to reduce this feeling of shame in ourselves and make a commitment to release more positivity.
We are socially created by our environment. We didn’t choose our brains, and we didn’t choose our environment. If you think about it, we are only one version of ourselves, if we had been brought up in a different situation, we would be different people. So, what would happen if we woke up and took control of our minds?
Compassion is a way to organise the mind. Humans do love to do things together and help each other. Kindness makes a huge difference to our lives and will calm any situation down. We could do with being kinder to each other and ourselves. This can calm down any threatening situation.
Nurture yourself, look after yourself and treat yourself with compassion. Be more mindful, think more positive thoughts. Keep the negative thoughts at bay. Like weeds in a garden, they will grow if you let them. Notice other people’s smiles. Treat them, and yourselves with understanding and above all, BE KIND. It works like magic, particularly in times of difficulty.
