366 Days of Kindness

366 Days of Kindness

I went to see a show last night, and what a wonderful show it was!

Bernadette Russell, as a result of seeing the devastation of the London riots in August 2011, decided to do an act of kindness every single day for a full year, and as 2012 was a leap year, this was going to be 366 days.

Bernadette decided to keep a diary of what she did every day. As time went on, she had to come up with some very creative ways of being kind, things that were as personal as she could make them to the receiver, that made them feel very special, and also things that were fun enough to keep Russell entertained and motivated to keep going, as she admitted was needed at times.

I expected the show to be quite a straightforward, if uplifting, lists of kindnesses, but it turned out to be a comedy extravaganza, performed by Russell and her partner Gareth.

Some examples from her diary:

Day 36: Left a fiver on the bus seat, but I wrote on the fiver explaining, in the  hope it gets passed around and spreads the word! This fiver did come back to me, months later, via Twitter, from a man who was given it in change in Nottingham and kindly posted a picture for me.

kindness, 366 days of kindnessDay 52: Left jar of sweets saying eat me at house near me. Rang bell, ran away.

Day 161: met this lovely man outside Waterloo station collecting for veterans. I gave him the scripscraps from my purse. Him: “Thanks” Me: “You’re welcome. Can I take a photo of you?” Him: “I’ll probably break your camera” Me: “No you won’t, a handsome man like you” Him: “oo *blushes* er.. ok.. thanks”. It got me thinking, I don’t give enough compliments. They don’t cost anything etc. Gonna do more.

Day 186: I got the homeless man sitting outside tescos a sandwich and rolos. He said he sleeps out. Blimey. In this. I couldn’t do one night.

kindness, 366 days of kindness, pound fairyDay 239: Left a little message and a pound coin on a park bench in Deptford.

There were so many examples of little kindnesses, that cost very little money, or no money at all, but put huge smiles on people’s faces.

What I especially liked were the personal connections made with strangers, people we wouldn’t normally come into contact with. In fact, as Bernadette demonstrated, it can be easy to approach someone who looks rather friendly, but how about someone who looks grumpy, or someone who is dressed in a similar style to a ‘London rioter’: Russell paid for a stamp in a Post Office for a young lad wearing a hoodie pulled up around his head, and his eyes down, he was very grateful for the help.

Often the people who don’t ‘look’ happy or look like negative stereotypes formed by society, are the ones who need the kindness, acceptance and inclusion, shown even more.

“If someone doesn’t have a smile, give them one of yours”

Kindness doesn’t have to involve giving money; in fact, it often means more without giving money:

  • Helping a pensioner lifting shopping into a car
  • Making homemade cards or positive messages, and leaving them in random places for people to find
  • Sitting with a homeless person, hearing their story, it’s often a powerful one, rather than throwing a fiver at them and walking away.

It reminded me of the homeless lady I gave my gloves to, because it was the middle of winter and I noticed, after giving her a cup of hot chocolate, how she wrapped her bare hands around the cup to warm them.

I would like to add here that I myself received an act of kindness, as I was gifted my ticket to the show. I was going to go anyway, and hadn’t bought my ticket yet, when somebody who had already paid found they couldn’t go, so gave me their ticket. I am very thankful.

Russell’s message is that if everybody does a small act of kindness every day, we will be living in a very different world. This movement is sweeping across the planet in a very powerful way. If we can teach our children this, the entire world can be improved within a generation.

Do Nice, Be Kind, Spread Happy, kindness, 366 days of kindnessI bought a copy of Russell’s children’s book ‘Do Nice, Be Kind, Spread Happy’, at the show, and it was lovely to speak with her personally and she signed the book for my 7-year-old niece. I got home and read it, and decided I need to buy another – for MYSELF!

It has such beautiful suggestions for very simple things that children, and adults as it turns out, can do every day. This is not a little paperback of lists. It is a large book, bigger than A4 size, with fully illustrated, and funny, pages and exercises to do, written in language that will engage children of all ages. It is a book that children will want to return to time and time again.

Forgive, let go and be free

Forgive, let go and be free

forgive, let go and be free

 

Too often, we carry around those things from our past that hurt us the most.

Don’t let past pain rob you of your present happiness.

You had to live through it in the past, and that cannot be changed, but if the only place it lives today is in your mind, then forgive, let go, and be free.

~Doe Zantamata

What are you carrying around that you could let go of today? Who are you feeling bitter towards? Forgiveness does not mean you have to have the person who wronged you in your life, just that you learned a hard lesson and can move on from it without remaining attached to the emotional pain. The beauty of it is, when you free them, you free yourself.

Forgive, let go and be free

A bird in a tree is talking to a dog on the ground. The bird is really upset and flustered. The dog asks, “What’s wrong?”. The bird flaps it’s wings and says, “Well I’m thinking about what happened yesterday and I’m worried about the future. What should I do?”. The dog replies, “Stop thinking!”.

It is not the situation that causes our pain, it is our thinking about it.

Eckhart Tolle teaches how to be present in the moment in The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment (UK). He has recently released his new book A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose (UK).

The elephant and the chain: what binds your mind?

The elephant and the chain: what binds your mind?

elephant and the chain, elephant, chainAn elephant is chained to a stake as a baby so he will not run away. He is “trained” for the circus, and to do tricks. As he grows they use a larger chain, but he is already “programmed” to be held in place by the chain. The elephant then grows up to full size. He is awesome, powerful and strong. He can easily break the chain and be free. But he has been taught to be chained. Imagine that! An animal of great strength and power, totally unaware he can break free AT ANY TIME from the chain that binds him. He could easily get away, but his mind has him bound.

Moral of the story: You are the elephant. Your mind is the chain.

Like the elephant, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before? Or stay in a situation we do not like, because we think we have no choice?

What was once true is no longer true. The chains are as imaginary as the ‘pink elephant’. You are bigger and stronger than you were before. More powerful than you realise.

Failure is part of learning; we should never give up the struggle in life. We can be free of our chains, the moment we change our mind. What is holding you back?

Desiderata: a manifesto for peace

Desiderata: a manifesto for peace

desiderata, max ehrmann, life manifesto“Desiderata” was written in 1927. However, it was largely unknown during Ehrmann’s lifetime, gaining popularity in the early 1970’s.

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Max Ehrmann, “Desiderata”

“Desiderata” was written in 1927. However, it was largely unknown during Ehrmann’s lifetime, gaining popularity in the early 1970’s.

It is my view, since learning about the universal laws, that there was a shift in consciousness around the 1920’s, that led to the emergence of several ‘New Age/New Thought’ writers: Napoleon Hill “Think and Grow Rich”, Florence Scovel Shinn “The Game of Life and How to Play It”, and Neville Goddard “The Law and The Promise” to name but a few. And of course it was around this decade too, that Albert Einstein began his studies and experiments of energy and universal forces.

I don’t find it entirely surprising that ‘Desiderata’ was rediscovered in the early 1970’s, following the next biggest shift in consciousness in the 60’s. We all know about ‘flower power’, the peace movement, and the song words ‘This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius‘.

Now, just as there was a 40-50 year gap in those major universal shifts, some 40-50 years on from the 60’s, we are experiencing another huge awakening, with the re-emergence of these powerful teachings and more. Indeed, it is believed that this was what the 2012 phenomena was all about. Rather than the apocalyptic or cataclysmic event many thought it was, it was an indicator of the hugely transformative stage we are now entering.

When you look at the 1920’s and 1960’s, what you see is a ‘break from the norm’, people stepping out and saying ‘this is how we want to live’. Look at the difference between the 1920’s and the Victorian values of less than 20 years previously. People became more free in their expression, this was shown in the big changes in fashion (especially for women), music, society.

Again, the colourful 1960’s were hugely different from the quite stuffy 1950’s, with large groups of people asserting their desire for freedom of expression, and wanting major changes in the world culture, and doing it in as peaceful a way as possible.

I see this happening now: people are wanting their freedoms back and are wanting to do it in the free and easy, peaceful way which has been proven to work before. People are becoming more creative, more humanitarian, more meditative, more ecological, wanting a return to a natural world of healthy, local-grown food rather than the factory-produced, chemical-laced crap that has become prevalent and caused a dumbing-down of society. People are realising their own power to create the lives they want.

The world has always progressed and improved after such a transformation. The populace realises how disempowered it has become through fear, control and weakness, then finds the strength to take its power back, and the only way that can happen is creating peace with peace. That is when the world moves forward.

Beating the Internal Bully

Beating the Internal Bully

beating the internal bully, internal dialogue, how do you speak to yourself

Zen to Zany

Every day you are talking to yourself in your head.  Often you are doing this unconsciously without really being aware of what you are doing.  Discover how this affects your life and how you can change it.

There are many things that drive people to success, and a key factor is what is known as ‘internal dialogue’. This is the dialogue that is constantly playing inside your head. It’s the voice that starts talking as soon as you do something, meet someone, or think about anything.

In many cases, this voice can be destructive and knock you down, though it is possible to quite easily harness this internal dialogue and use it to propel you to the success you desire and deserve.

You may notice that on occasion the voice is negative in what it says. For example, you see something you really want to buy and it says, “You can’t afford that.” Or you see someone you are really attracted to and the voice says, “They’re way out of your league, they’ll never go for someone like you.”

At it’s worst, and most destructive, it beats you with words like “You’re not good enough”, “You don’t deserve to be happy”, and it is this internal bully saying “You’re too fat” or “Why don’t you look like her/him?”, that causes conditions like eating disorders and depression.

We sometimes speak to ourselves in a way we would not allow others to speak to us. If a friend spoke to us in this way, we would not be friends with them for very long.

Quite obviously, this does nothing to make your life any better. Therefore, why not change the content of the voice? When it says something negative, counter it with a positive suggestion. For example, when the voice says, “You can’t afford that.” Respond mentally in a firm and positive voice with something like, “How can I afford it?” A question that empowers you and propels you into positive action. Or train yourself to positively affirm “I’m perfect just the way I am”, because everybody IS uniquely perfect.

This may take some time, and you may notice initially you do not always catch the voice and correct it. However, keep it up and before you know it, you will have changed the negative dialogue into a positive, empowering one.

You can also change the tone of the voice. What would happen if instead of the usual tone of voice saying, “I can’t afford it” you hear the voice of Homer Simpson, or Donald Duck, or any comic character saying it? You certainly wouldn’t listen to the voice and take it seriously, you would laugh at it and it’s power over you would be broken.

This technique can be extended to helping you motivate yourself to do something. When faced with the washing up, what do you hear in your head? Do you hear a whiny voice saying something like, “You really ought to do the washing up or you’ll get into trouble” or a commanding and scary voice saying, “Wash up NOW!”?

What would happen if the voice were a soft and really seductive voice speaking in your head? The sort of voice that gives you shivers down your back. What if it said something like, “Let’s do the washing up big boy.”? How would that motivate you?

Stephen King, the author, uses this technique with his writing. When he has to write he hears this very loud and powerful voice shouting at him as if through a megaphone saying something like, “WRITE NOW!!!!!” It almost scares him in to writing.

However, you don’t need to scare yourself into action. You can change your internal dialogue to be anything you want; whatever works best for you to motivate you and help you to get where you want to be.

Listen to your internal dialogue and play with changing the tone, volume and tempo to find the type of voice that works best for you. Create a number of different types of voices, one for motivation, one to stop you doing things, one to make you feel loved, one to make you feel happy and so on.

Mastering your internal dialogue is a major key in mastering your life.

Fill your life with what you love and it’s hard not to love life

The internet is an absolute treasure chest for inspirational and heart-warming stories. I never fail to find something that touches my soul.

Today my inspiration came from one of my favourite sources; a young man named Jake Ducey posted this on his Facebook page.

“I just got back from sometime spent in downtown Los Angeles. It was raining. Tall buildings everywhere. It was about 10:00pm. I walked back to my hotel after dinner. I saw homeless people sleeping on the sidewalk. They covered themselves from the rain with plastic bags. I walked past and saw the lighted up logo of Chase Bank reflect off a mirrored window high-rise. I began to feel anger toward the world- how can we have so much money and so many people who can’t even get out of the rain and dirty sidewalk at night?

When I turned the last corner I saw a heavier set homeless man in all black with a beanie on. He had a sign that said, “Hungry Homeless Vet.” He was reading. I was curious, “Hey dude, what are you reading?”

He looked up, “a fiction book about sorcery and wizards. Do you like to read?”

“I like to write more,” I said.

We started talking. He was sitting and reading under the overhang of the Subway restaurant. He didn’t have anywhere to sleep because it was too rainy, Instead he read under the Subway lights. We talked for about fifteen minutes. He had a broken right foot that was in a cast. He said it’d been broken for over a month before it got treated.

“It’s okay though,” he said, “It’s just means more time to read.”

I asked him about not having a home. He laughed. Actually, it was a bit more of a giggle, a mature one though- the kind of giggle a sixty year old homeless World War II Veteran would make if they though something was funny.

“I just get to read all I want!” he said.

I laughed and told him I write. I pulled a copy of my book Into the Wind from my backpack. I asked him who I should make it out to?

“Truck,” he said.

I wrote, “… with love for all you love to do…” inside the cover of the book.

I handed it to him and he read it.

“I laughed when you asked if it’s hard being homeless. Life is hard no matter what. But i believe if we have a good book, or something we love, then life ain’t as bad as they say it is- it’s beautiful.”

“So it’s like the old saying, ‘fill your life with what you love and it’s hard not to love life?”

He nodded. I shook his hand and told him I’d come back to look for him next time I was downtown.

Now I write, reflecting on what I learned from Truck: no matter what you’re going through, there’s something out there that can fill your life with so much pleasure, that it makes all the pain worth it. Everyone has something they enjoy- they just got to take the time to do it. Reading books, writing books, listening to music or making it, working out, surfing, dancing, raising kids, teaching, drawing, gardening, skateboarding or snowboarding, accounting, running or starting a business, and a billion other things… there’s something here for us to get lost in, for us to love…”
