“Every little flame of a light can bring peace, smile and hope to lives of millions.
Be the light.”
Today I call you Kind. For I believe, you are a sea of kindness. You have a kind heart and pure soul to kindle the lamp of hope and love in someone’s life. You have a big heart to embrace all the haters, to forgive all the sinners and to bring life in a dying soul. I know, you are kind.
But in this phase of life, you have forgotten who you are. How much love you can hold in your heart. For now, you see yourself lost in the darkness, and in this moment, you are seeking for the light. You are seeking peace, purpose and meaning. But remember, all the journey begins with you. If you are not kind enough to yourself, then how would you begin the journey to life?
You are devastated, you are having sleepless nights. This moment, all you need is a friend. A hand to hold, a shoulder to weep. Someone to hear your inner heart, and feel your delicate soul, which is now suffering from the drought of love. You wish for someone who can turn your teardrops to pearls of love. You pray for a touch of empathy, compassion and kindness. Who will hear you, feel your void, heal your wounds and help you to bring back the lost grace. Someone who will restore your broken pieces, and promise to make you whole, again.
Just like you, once I was also trapped in this profound loneliness. I started thinking myself the worst person in the world. I have nobody around me, who can hold my hand in this acute darkness. I felt a thirst, a void inside. I wanted to express this grief to someone who cares for me. I had my parents and my sister with me, but there was an unspoken silence in my every words. I couldn’t speak my heart out. As if, I became dumb, and that book of unsaid words felt like a never ending story. It seemed to me that I am a puppet, and I am enacting a mime act of play. Everything I said, I did, was left with a void of unsaid.
But one day, I discovered a beautiful truth about life. That nobody but you are a sea of kindness. You are kind, and you have to be kind to yourself, too. Nobody else, but you. Only you.
Seeker, you are finding love, you are seeking light. Why don’t you give yourself a treat of kindness? You have a candle of compassion hidden in your heart, why don’t you shower abundance of love to your own self?
Do you know, what is kindness? It’s a light. It’s love. It’s the divine touch, that reveals the divinity in you. Slowly, gently. It kindles the lamp of love inside you. Kindness begins with you. Kindness is a flame of the lamp you hold in your heart. If you lit this lamp of kindness within you, it will kindle another lamp residing in someone’s heart, awaiting to be kindled with love, hope and kindness. If you are kind to yourself, then you will be kind to someone else, who needs it just like you. May be, someone waiting for a touch of love and compassion. Someone, waiting to return to light, once again. Someone, who is lonely like you, waiting for a hand to hold. Together, you will begin the journey towards light.
Let the dawn of tomorrow, begin a new journey. A journey to kindle a thousand hearts with the little flame of kindness.
For the journey towards kindness,
