The Great Give Away

I love the title today. What if everyone just gave away love to everyone they meet today. It could be as simple as a heart felt smile, or another little thing such as opening a door, allowing someone to go ahead of you, leaving a coin in the change return slot for someone to find, paying for the person behind you in the coffee shop… Well I could go on, but I won’t.
I know you can imagine it, all the little things quickly add up and as each person pays it forward, the love and kindness continues to grow and grow at the speed of love. Just think, wouldn't it be amazing? And don’t you think the picture helps to imagine the love flowing in and out, to every living thing, all around the world and beyond? If we all lived like this everyday, the world could soon become such a wonderful place. Shouldn't giving love to others and showing kindness be as simple as breathing, inhaling and exhaling? You don’t have to think about breathing for it to occur, it’s automatic. And that’s the way I imagine that love should be, not only for me but for everyone.

The world could certainly learn some lessons from the kindness being demonstrated by the Japanese people in the wake of the recent devastation. There’s no looting, that says so much to me. In fact, there are volunteers sorting through the debris looking for lost treasures, photos, toys, memories, before everything is cleared away. The items found will hopefully find their way to their owners, families and friends. A triumph of human spirit for sure, and something that would have been so hard to imagine such a short time ago. They are teaching me so much more than they will ever know. I am keeping these wonderful souls, in my thoughts and prayers.
Today, I choose to walk in kindness, I am love, I am Marsha!

"When we give, we simply make room for more to come in. When we become deeply, authentically generous, it signals to our abundant universe that there is a conduit open to receive and distribute. We become part of the vital natural system."
