Week 16—-Kindness—-is Everywhere!

In Doing this exercise of bestowing Kindness without being detected was not that easy, but I got it done. I was in a quandary at first, then I began to focus on the moments of my day when they were happening, and suddenly I found there were unlimited possibilities for RAKs. Going through the fast food drive through, I paid for the person behind me. I never saw them and they never saw me. I have no idea how they reacted when learning of their benefit, but I do know how the young lady at the cashier window lit up when I told her what I wanted to do….That was an unintended blessing and more than enough reward for my RAK. Her eyes twinkled as she looked at me and said, “How awesome are you for doing that!” We both smiled and I felt like I was the one who got the better end of the deal. That event flavored the rest of my day, and like many in the alliances noted, suddenly I was seeing how many kindness were being given! It was constant. At that point in my focus, I though, “Wow! the world has changed right before my very eyes…So many laws in play were going through my mind. The law of substitution: focusing on kindness, courtesy, respect even love instead of being frustrated at the traffic or the person who cut me off. Then of course was the law of compensation—give more-get more….Wow…. Watching my wife who lives her entire day giving unconciously–everyday! I have loved her for years for her open and wonderful heart, but now I’m so much more in awe of her….

Finally, I have a sense of ease and open friendliness towards others this week. I’ve been traveling and in doing so, entering into conversations with people. Drawing them out and really listening to them. I’m honored by their trust and how easily they respond to my attention…And it’s all been so easy! No agendas, no ulterior motives, just genuine respect and real interest in who they are…I feel this wonderful freedom in my spirit…What an Awesome Week!!

    This comment sums it up for me Dennis “Wow! the world has changed right before my very eyes…” Funny I had the same thought! Little did I know it was ME changing! What a freeing experience, right? Kudos to you! Great blog post!

    Like you, I suddenly noticed kindnesses simply because I was looking. I love how you paid for the person behind you at the drive through. If you don’t mind, I plan to use that. Thank you so much for sharing!

    Wonderful experience..and you did get the better deal..For as you probably know these are the words the Lord Jesus himself said “It is more blessed to give than receive” (Acts 20:35).
    I am honored to be on this journey w/ you, Dennis.
    Wishing you Abundance and Blessings on this Journey, Christel
