There is a gentleness that is present within each and every one of you. It co-exists with strength and courage, for both are often needed in order for you to exhibit kindness or compassion.

There appears to be a perception here upon this plane that kindness evolves from weakness, from lack of self-worth, from being an ‘easy target’. When in fact, the exact opposite is true. For often, showing kindness and compassion requires you to take a step away from the crowd and to act alone. It often shows leadership and resolve, a willingness to set the tone, to teach the lesson, to show the way.

Do not forget to show this during your daily lives. It requires you to step out of your comfort zone at times. It requires you to be aware of your surroundings. It requires you to be present in the moment. And is that not what we have taught you time and time again? To be present in the moment.

For the present is all that is. It helps to create the future and heal the past. What you do in this very moment is setting the stage for the next one while releasing hold on the previous one. Ah, if all could only start each moment anew, think of how the world would change! No regrets, no grudges, no expectations. Life as it is in all its nakedness. Life in the now.

It is time for you to be kind to yourselves also. You have this season of ‘giving’ in celebration of birthdays, a season for celebration and reaching out. But should this season not be part of every day in your lives? We do not quite understand the focus on just one time of year. Should not your every moment be one of celebration, giving and reaching out?

There is a great need at this time to spend time in silence and meditation, if only for a moment every day. It is during these times that you can connect with your Source, to renew and regenerate, to receive the loving kindness and embrace of the All. Do not forget to do this, especially at this time. This is our gift to you. Your gift to yourselves. Time spent sitting and breathing, walking and breathing, eating and breathing. Being aware. Being of One. Being of Love.

These short meditations can raise your spirits, raise your energies, raise your connection. And that is sorely needed at this time. Allow the Joy of you, the Joy of the All to rise within each and every one of you. Celebrate your very existence, your every breath. Let us help you by allowing the connection to strengthen between us.

Be kind to yourselves. It begins with you. You deserve it. You are worthy of it. And as you grow, the world grows brighter, the Universal song is louder, and the energies rise higher.

Sit in silence, walk in silence, eat in silence. Love yourselves and exhibit kindness towards yourselves and others.

For the gift is YOU.

    Such an important message. If I only had one thought I could keep in my heart, it would be- be kind.

    Thank you.

    Unfortunately kindness is not always seen as a pure positive attitude – as you say it’s often associated with weakness. I agree with you and I see kindness as a strength more than anything. Kindness brings strength to both those who receive it and the giver. Wonderful post.
