BE kind- indicates that kindness is a state of being. The more we practice kindness to others (AND OURSELVES-after all, we are living things...), the more it changes our energy and vibration. The more that energy is changed, the more the energy around us changes. Did you ever notice how an unexpected smile or greeting lightens your energy?
The way we consistently view and try to treat others helps us to treat ourselves better as well. Just imagine if you treated yourself as well as you treat your best friend.
The ripple effect (even if "just for today") of treating all living beings with kindness is immeasurable- and, of course, what we give out comes back to us many fold. \
Now go forth and enjoy a kind universe!
