The Best Gift of All

"Make a gift of your life and lift all mankind by being kind, considerate, forgiving, and compassionate at all times, in all places, and under all conditions, with everyone as well as yourself. This is the greatest gift anyone can give."

~David Hawkins

The best gift you can give is the gift of yourself and how you live your life.  When you move beyond the petty issues we all face daily and choose to live with compassion, forgiveness, kindness and love, you are sharing your true gift with the world.  When you react to others by treating them as you would want all people to be treated in this world, you set the example for people to then pass along to others. 

This week:  Practice random acts of kindness to those you know and to complete strangers.  It doesn't require money.  It requires connecting at a human level with others.  Open doors for people.  Smile.  Give honest compliments.  Offer to help someone.  Find peace in your heart for those who have wronged you, even if you can manage this only for one week out of the rest of your life.  Reach out to someone with whom you have lost touch.  Ask yourself "How can I make a gift of MY life, even for this one week?"  Notice how you feel about it.  Discover that the gift isn't just a gift you are giving to others; it is also a gift to yourself.

I love this idea, Linda. It seems the world is losing it, and this simple reminder to give out of love without expectation is wonderful. I love random acts of kindness and I can't wait to practice this.

I love your post. Just today, I made a quick trip to the grocery in the cold and snow. I was almost back to the car and something told me to look at where the carts were all piled up in the parking lot. And there in a cart was someone's purse. I suppose they were very cold and focused on getting in the car with keys in hand. So I took it in and left it with one of the clerks. I got home only to hear about how my wife had lost her customized name tag for her work. She had been to several stores this morning. Someone found it and turned it in to the employees at the store where it was found. Those acts, as simple as they are, are all connected out there.
I trust the same call has been made to the owner of the purse.
