How To Live a Life of Kindness

How To Live a Life of Kindness

Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible. ~ Dalai Lama

I was going through some old files the other day and came across a beautiful little poem written by my dear friend, Jerry Buchanan, many years ago.

Jerry is gone now, but in his lifetime he was a legendary figure in the world of writing and publishing. He graciously mentored me when I was a new young writer. Throughout the years he did the same for thousands of others. Jerry was one of the kindest people I’ve ever known.

As we begin another new year, I’m excited about the powerful energies and opportunities awaiting us in 2015. This is a time like no other in human history, a time of truly new beginnings.

So I want to share Jerry’s poem with you today. His ideas and words, though not new, are powerful guideposts and reminders as we launch into this exciting new era.

Living and Giving by Jerry Buchanan

Whatever you give away today
Or think or say or do
Will multiply about tenfold
And then return to you.
It may not come immediately
Nor from the obvious source
But the Law applies unfailingly
Through some invisible force.

Whatever you feel about another,
Be it love or hate or passion,
Will surely bounce right back to you
In some clear (or secret) fashion.
If you speak about some person
A word of praise or two, 
Soon, tens of other people
Will speak kind words of you.

Our thoughts are broadcasts of the soul,
Not secrets of the brain.
Kind ones bring us happiness;
Petty ones, untold pain.
Giving works as surely as
Reflections in a mirror.
If hate you send, hate you’ll get back
But loving brings love nearer.

Remember, as you start this day
And duty crowds your mind,
That kindness comes so quickly back
To those who first are kind.
Let that thought and this one
Direct us through each day . . .
The only things we ever keep
Are the things we give away.

Enjoy this video, Simple Acts of Kindness:

In the early 1980s, John took a spiritual development course and was introduced to his first spirit guide, Lydia. After Lydia arrived, three other guides also came to him: Archangel Michael, Tamarra, and Chief Joseph. Today these are John’s four main guides. Besides his four main ones, John has various other guides. The entire group is really a multidimensional collective consciousness. John refers to the entire group simply as “Spirit.” Source
