KindSpring Weekly: Spotlight On Kindness: Kindness In

Sep 17, 2019 Latest issue of 'KindSpring Weekly' newsletter is themed Spotlight On Kindness: Kindness In Front Of You. There's a saying that either we get a person for life or a lesson for life. While every person is deserving of kindness, what if we were to view the particular people who cross our paths as life's lessons and opportunities for growth uniquely tailored just for each of us? Since we can't bless everyone, let's learn the lesson of compassion and be kind to those chosen few placed before us. - Ameeta

KindSpring Weekly: Spotlight On Kindness: 9/11 Love

Sep 10, 2019, 2 comments, 6 smiles Latest issue of 'KindSpring Weekly' newsletter is themed Spotlight On Kindness: 9/11 Love. The start of autumn often reminds me of that crisp September day in 2001 in NYC when our world shook, but then I remember that Sept 11 in history is also when Vivekananda gave his famous speech on interfaith understanding at the 1893 Parliament of World Religions and Gandhi announced his strategy of non-violence in South Africa in 1906. Let's reclaim 9/11 as a day of transcendent kindness. -Preeta

KindSpring Weekly: Spotlight On Kindness: Competition

Sep 03, 2019, 3 smiles Latest issue of 'KindSpring Weekly' newsletter is themed Spotlight On Kindness: Competition And Kindness. We don't often think of humility and competition together, but great athletes often exhibit great humility, as tennis #1 Naomi Osaka did toward 15-year-old phenom Coco Gauff. Humility, kindness and compassion are crucial to building lasting success. True champions are revealed from the inside, not just created by extraordinary efforts on the outside. Let's reveal our inner champion. - Ameeta

KindSpring Weekly: Spotlight On Kindness: "Seeing"

Aug 27, 2019 Latest issue of 'KindSpring Weekly' newsletter is themed Spotlight On Kindness: "Seeing" Souls. Our souls ache to be seen. Regardless of our age, gender, race or sexual orientation, we need to be able to see and be seen on the inside, not just as we're socially or physically embodied. If we and others don't access or shine light on our souls, our bodies rebel and announce our untended souls' existence through disease. Let's all look beyond the surface to heal ourselves and others. - Ameeta

KindSpring Weekly: Spotlight On Kindness: Holy Moments

Aug 20, 2019, 1 smiles Latest issue of 'KindSpring Weekly' newsletter is themed Spotlight On Kindness: Holy Moments. Moments of inspiration and meaning surround us every day, yet do we actually process, reflect or be in awe of them? We witness beautiful sunrises and touching moments daily but tend to dwell more on the negative moments. Awe, or the sense of wonder or reverence, can transform every moment into a "holy moment", and in the process transform and purify both beholder and beheld. - Ameeta

KindSpring Weekly: Spotlight On Kindness: Back To

Aug 13, 2019, 1 smiles Latest issue of 'KindSpring Weekly' newsletter is themed Spotlight On Kindness: Back To School Kindness. August is back-to-school time for many. As a new beginning and a reset of sorts, it can be more than about just new clothes and school supplies. We can encourage children to be aware of how others are feeling, and to act with loving, intentional kindness whenever possible. And "it's always possible" (the Dalai Lama). Children hold the key to the change. Let's all help. - Jane

KindSpring Weekly: Spotlight On Kindness: One Small

Aug 06, 2019 Latest issue of 'KindSpring Weekly' newsletter is themed Spotlight On Kindness: One Small Difference. It's easy to feel discouraged when the breadth of our problems seems overwhelming. After all, how much can one person actually do to combat violence or global climate change? But individual change can collectively make huge differences. We can each plant a tree and avoid plastic use. Even minor shifts in our diets can impact carbon emissions. Let's each start with one small change. - Ameeta

KindSpring Weekly: Spotlight On Kindness: Earth

Jul 30, 2019, 2 smiles Latest issue of 'KindSpring Weekly' newsletter is themed Spotlight On Kindness: Earth Overshoot Day. July 29 marked Earth Overshoot Day - the point each year where we use Earth's natural resources faster than they can be replenished. All our actions are interlinked in complex global cycles - carbon, ocean, climate, food, etc. The Earth itself is remarkably resilient and will survive, but whether humans can survive is another question unless we start listening and being kind to Nature. - Ameeta

KindSpring Weekly: Spotlight On Kindness: The Overview

Jul 23, 2019, 2 smiles Latest issue of 'KindSpring Weekly' newsletter is themed Spotlight On Kindness: The Overview Effect. As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing for our successful reach to the vast spaces outside and beyond us, the quest, in fact, allowed us to see ourselves more clearly - a tiny, fragile ball of life suspended in space. It offered self-awareness of our place in a vast universe. From space, boundaries and conflicts disappear and our interconnection becomes obvious. - Preeta

KindSpring Weekly: Spotlight On Kindness: Kindness Road
