Small Gestures Of Kindness In A Time Of Cruelty

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comPeople are feeling anxious and uncertain with what has been happening in the world in recent months. Many are fearful and stressed, and unsure how to act appropriately in these strange times. Some act out in destructive or dramatic ways, taking their frustration out on others.

It is common knowledge that the digital age and social media has spawned a generation of computer warriors and online bullies who express their insecurities and fears, in often extremely mean and cruel ways, from the comfort of their living rooms and basements. This savage lack of empathy and decorum has seemingly now spilt over into our streets and neighborhoods too, in the midst of a global pandemic.

It is easier for many to be critical and judgmental, to complain and argue, instead of facing facts, dealing with the truth and seeking lasting solutions. Often not knowing the entire story, many people choose to see only see one side of things, while telling others off for disagreeing with their limited point of view. The computer has unfortunately given some people a platform to spread strife and hatred, instead of love, hope and kindness.

I pray that more people will strive to seek the truth and learn to look for the good and kind in others. Showing tolerance, patience and kindness is always the better, more open approach. And always remember that if someone attacks you directly, then it often means they are somehow struggling or hurting. It usually serves no real purpose to attack them back.

The Pretense Of Hyper-Sensitivity

Click Here for a FREE psychic reading right now at PsychicAccess.comOnce we realize we have been misunderstood in one of our casual remarks, we typically try to immediately turn it around,. We try to add a more agreeable flavor, in the hopes that the offended or confused person will take it as a well-intended supported compliment. It’s usually rather ridiculous, really, but nonetheless in these situations we continue to ‘make certain’ we are not seen in a controversial manner, or in a ‘bad light.’

When such an ambiguous occasion arises, we are perfectly aware of what we are doing and how we are doing it. But, does that make one bit of difference to us? No. If we were not nearly so phony and apologetic in our deference, we may even get a lucid glimpse of what we were really saying, along with the motivation behind our attempts to butter up the other.

What exactly is it that we are hoping to accomplish? Why is it important to remain on a level of satisfactory exchange with the other, in fear of upsetting them? Do not these innuendos ring a melody of falsity? Does not the planted, erect knife in the butter fall once the butter melts?

In other words, what is hidden in the relationships we feel so insecure about, and in need of continuing such a façade of nicety?

We work so hard to maintain the supposed idea of decency we have long since cherished, nurtured and polished in our own minds. We do nothing to upset the apple cart. And, when an unsuspecting, misunderstood statement is made, maybe even in jest, we immediately try to reabsorb the awkwardness left behind. We feel we must absolve ourselves in the light of the other, and will actually go out on a thin brittle limb of more flattery, in hopes it won’t snap to reveal our embarrassment.

Holding Out For The Heroes

Click Here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comEvery morning, while I am getting ready to face the uncertain world we currently live in, I put on that famous song by Bonnie Tyler, Holding Out For A Hero. And I turn the volume up – so loud that any anxiety or worry I might feel won’t stand a chance over that song! It reminds me that while there are heroes in our world, there will always be hope. And we all are the sources of that hope, because we are all heroes in our own way.

Lately, I have been thinking especially about all the heroes and heroines out there on the frontlines of the Covid-19 pandemic, fighting every day for our greater good. So many healthcare workers, essential services personnel and volunteers are working around the clock, despite the danger and the risk to themselves and their families. Some of the first responders have to sleep in their cars or stations, not to affect their own families.

It is easy for ordinary folks to feel useless and insignificant in these times. What could the rest of us possibly do to support them in their valiant efforts? Personally, I have no medical education, apart from being a life guard in my teens. What could I possibly contribute during a global health crisis? Well, I’ll tell you what makes sense. Many of us have special skills or resources that we can put to good use during these challenging times. Some people are sewing masks at home, or collecting food, while others are doing virtual volunteering and various uplifting online projects.

Being Grateful For Every Thank You

Click Here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comIt occurred to me recently, while I was out driving in the Spanish countryside where I now live, that most of the local people appear to be really happy and content. They often talk of things they are grateful for, and these are rarely their material belongings. Then I had a big ‘aha’ moment!

As a child I grew up in various Spanish speaking places. I learned, when someone thanks you for something, the appropriate response is to say, “De nada!” In other words, ‘it’s nothing,’ or ‘don’t mention it.’

On my return to Spain a few years ago, I discovered a different response to a thank you. These days a gracias (thank you) is responded to with gracias a ti (thanks to you). Also what I noticed is, when I got thanked in return, it felt really good, as if good energy was being directed my way.

I met one of my Spanish friends for coffee today. We both enjoy our chats about all things spiritual. She is studying metaphysics in various disciplines, and I have read for her, as well as her mom. I brought up this topic about how ‘thank you’ is replied to differently, compared to when I first started learning Spanish many years ago. “It is not entirely the case,” she responded. “There are still those who say de nada.”
