Beginning today. treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster. Your life will never be the same again. ~ Og Mandino, “The Greatest Miracle in the World”

One of our greatest joys in spirit is seeing humans celebrating, and just plain having fun.

Many of you are very good at that during this time in your linear calendar. But not always so good at it the rest of the year.

You often find yourselves feeling more kindly toward others during December. The vibration of kindness raises the level of your awareness, and touches those around you at a deep level of their awareness.

In fact, when you are being kind, whether to others, to yourselves, the animals, etc., you raise the awareness of your entire planet. Even we in the realms of spirit can feel your “kindness vibration.”

This is a powerful healing force each of you possess. And it’s so simple. All you have to do is to be kind whenever you can, whether it’s easy or not. You can always choose to be kind.

That is what “the Christmas spirit,” or “the spirit of the season,” is all about.

Pure and simple kindness, given with love and compassion, will heal others, yourselves, the planet.

You, one person standing alone, have that much power. This is the power that can literally change lives, and transform your world into a far more peaceful place than you have ever known.

In many cultures December is a month of holiday celebrations, including Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Three Kings Day, St. Lucia Day, and Ramadan. No matter what you celebrate, or even if you don’t celebrate at all, let’s all make December a time of kindness—and then extend that time through the whole new year, and beyond.


What can you do to spread the spirit of kindness, especially at this festive time of year? Remember to be kind to all in your life, including yourself. Please share your thoughts with us below.

Simple acts of kindness have the power to transform lives—the lives of the giver and the receiver. As A Course In Miracles says, “All that I give is given to myself.”
