It takes very little to be kind to others – and I believe the world would be a much better place if kindness was a common practice. But, as I know, I am not in charge of the world. Being kind to others who have not been kind to me provides me with very good lessons on being spiritually fit, and emotionally mature. If I can rise above my old ways of treating people, and work towards being kind to others because it is the right thing to do – I will be a better person for it. The Program teaches me this, and my Higher Power, continues to remind me that giving comes from the heart, not the brain.
