Episode 66

Do you care if you make a positive difference in the world…, or not? I pose this question to a certain group of people, and not necessarily you.

A quote titled: THE CANVAS OF TIME

Our behavior is reflected and, at the same time, displayed on the canvas of Time for the world to see and be terrified, or inspired, unquote.

There is a lot of wrong in the world today. But if it wasn’t for the many, many, good people in the world, we would all be in trouble. I feel safe to assume you are one of the many. But, in my mind, there are two groups of people who make up the many. You are either one of those who go the extra mile to be kind or, you are one of those who simply want to live along, get along and be left alone.

Fortunately, those in this group, and there are many, who from time to time, commit acts of kindness in their own way, and that’s a good thing, right?

I have no quarrel with that. In fact, I applaud them, or you if you are in this group. That you are kind only now and then is good enough for me. I’ll take kindness no matter the dosage. A gallon of kindness plus a drop of kindness equals a gallon and one drop of kindness. More, however little, is still more.

In life, everything and everyone relate to everything and everyone else. In other words, we are all interconnected. We are all on the same boat, at the same time; the boat called Life and during the only time there is…, now.

Unfortunately, despite this reality, there are those who, fortunately, are in the smallest group. Most in this small group are not necessarily unkind. But when they are being kind, it is because there are strings attached. You know who they are, I do, and I have mixed feelings about it. Nevertheless, I should focus on the beneficiary of the act of kindness and not the benefactor, and think of kindness as kindness, regardless.

Then there are those, and we hear about them in the news, who know right from wrong and, chose wrong. Why? Only they know, or don’t know. But it changes nothing, right? Wrong is wrong, knowingly, or unknowingly

These are the people to whom I ask: Do you care if you make a positive difference in the world…, or not? These are the people, you, me and the world are terrified by.

But hope lives because of the many, many acts of kindness by the many…, by you who commit acts of kindness that inspire others to honor our connectedness and keep spreading kindness throughout the world.

It’s Now O’ Clock. Time to be mindful that a drop of kindness, is still kindness. Any amount or type is welcomed and appreciated, even if it is a droplet. Thanx.

Tune in next time for the quote of the day…. It may be that one quote you are searching for…. That quote that ignites your passion and gears you up for achievement…, or…, it may be the quote that…, as you journey through life…, illuminates your path…, brings you peace…, love…, and happiness. Share what you find here with someone else. It may be a quote…, that for them…, may set them…, or keep them on a path to a better life.
