World Kindess Day

Recommended Posts

Yeah, every day is a day now and it's all kind of silly and artificial as we continue to be stuck in our present shock protopia.  But what the hell.  Being kind to each other in real life is still something valuable.  Today is World Kindess Day, so if you ever want to do something nice, there is no time like the present (a slogan which will be a fantastic new meditation t-shirt for me...)

May you all dwell in safety.
May you be happy and healthy.
May you be free from afflictions.
May you be at peace.

Except @Fat Drunk and Stupid

no, no, no, be kind.  Even you, man.

Believe

There is

Good in the

World

Too late for me.  Morning commute included a couple infractions already.

Good luck to the rest of you.

May you all have a safe trip to Hell.

Kind of ironic that it falls on the same day as International Snark Day.  Way to capture the spirit of both.

Was just talking about kindness to my 9 year old daughter last night. She's at the age where kids at school are just turning mean and judgmental, and she was frustrated with certain kids in her class.

All I could tell her is: "just be nice and kind to people. I know it's hard, but you just have to walk away when someone says mean things to you. You can't fight hateful with more hateful."

And then I get out in the world and so much hate is around us, I feel like its a battle that can really never be won. All I can do is hope the kids that walk out of my house don't bring hate into their lives.

I don't think that it is a battle against hate in the world.   It is a path toward self-fulfillment and self-actualization.   And bringing more kindness than hate into the world will be beneficial regardless of whether hate can be overcome in a grand sense.

I get the sentiment, I can't help but feel that every day should be kindness day though.

Like Schneider says, one day at a time...
