The Dalai Lama and Bishop Desmond Tutu

One of my favorite Dalai Lama quotes is “Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.”

And another: “My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.”

One of our recent newsletter articles was Always Speak Your Truth Fearlessly. Some folks, including me in earlier years, take that to mean speak your truth aggressively with no regard or consideration for others. That, as I see in hindsight, is a very bad policy.

As the Dalai Lama says, it’s always possible to be kind.

My spirit guides have often said even the smallest act of kindness can have huge effects down the road. It’s all about the Law of Attraction—whatever we do, say, or think inevitably comes back to us in one form or another.

Every act of cruelty will return to us. Every act of kindness will return to us.


This video, even though it’s an advertisement, illustrates perfectly and beautifully how an act of kindness can return to us in ways unimaginable.
