THE GIFT OF KINDNESS – An excerpt
This game of separation is but a brief moment in what we perceive as time; we are never born and we never die. Aligning with the Presence of our unlimited being is the key to awakening from this sleep of separation. Awakening from this sleep, we come to realize that our true purpose is to celebrate life, to bring forth love, joy, laughter, and peace from within so that we can reflect it without.
Reality, or the Divine, is always kind. It is up to us to find this gift of kindness in every person and in every situation. For no situation or person can exist without the Presence of the Divine.
I tell my Higher Self, “I am sorry for my mind data,” and “I love you because you cleanse my mind data when I ask.”
I am reminded of Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len; a Hawaiian therapist who cured a complete ward of criminally insane patients through a healing process called Ho’oponopono.
Ho’oponopono, a shamanic practice of forgiveness that is native to Hawaii, explicitly encourages verbally forgiving one’s own inner child and loving the self.
With the technique of Ho’oponopono, Dr. Hew Len healed the patients without seeing any of them. He took each of the patients’ charts and looked within himself to see how he created that person’s illness. As he continued to work on himself, the patients were healed. The work he did on himself was to say the words “I am sorry” and “I love you” over and over again.
The simple technique of Ho’oponopono is to love the self and to forgive the self for holding mind stories of fear.
So as I am saying, “I am sorry,” and, “I love you,” to all the data of my mind about people and situations, my soul brings to me this message: It tells me that reality/God is always kind, and it is me who needs to take responsibility to find this gift of kindness in every person or situation in my space.
I realize that anything other than love feels like stress. I choose to live in love, and I tell my soul I choose to find and see this gift of kindness in every person and in every situation.
