Nature has so much to render & be considerate-it doesn’t cost us anything…
“Thousands of Candles can be lighted from a single candle. Happiness never decreases by being shared”. -Buddha.
Kindness is a virtue which we all display in our character and also put it into practice time and out, to others outside- our social circle we all term it as ,all said and done we usually hold up our spirits and try and preach people to help all around us .We usually advice and at times compel people to help others ,yes compel in a way by displaying all our virtuous deeds of help on the social media ;my question is ,thus is it really a “help”? or it merely instigates the people around us in a other way.
In my opinion, Kindness as a virtue should be practiced first rather then to be preached to others loudly, and as they say charity begins at home; thus we should practice it first and foremost with our kith and kens and then move on with the crowd trying to change their mentality. Let me explain it to you with an example that nature renders to us and lies with us since centuries;
Sunflowers turn according to the position of the sun. In other words, they “chase the light.” This facing the sun phenomenon is called HELIOTROPISM
You might already know this, but there is another fact that you probably do not know! Have you ever wondered what happens on cloudy and rainy days when the sun is completely covered by clouds?
This is an interesting question. Isn’t it?
Perhaps you think the sunflower withers or turns its head towards the ground.
Is this what crossed your mind?
Well, that’s incorrect!
This is what happens?
They turn towards each other to share their energy.
Nature’s perfection is amazing. Now let’s apply this reflection to our lives. Many people may become low-spirited, and the most vulnerable ones, sometimes, become depressed. How about following the example of the beautiful sunflowers i.e. "Supporting and empowering each other". Nature has so much to teach us. (Story by, Sonya Shastri)
Wishing everyone a "Sun flower" trait of turning towards each other on their cloudy and gloomy days.
Hope we realize that each and everyone around us is valuable and need our kind concern and care in some or the other ways of their own, we just need to concentrate on their needs which are more of psychological rather than physical only then we would be able to create a world full of empathy and happiness around us. So friends through this write-up I just want to convey that lets all first try and help as well as uplift the people around us whether it be our colleagues our subordinates or the staff working for us by valuing their individuality ignoring their post or position, as each and every one is just thirsty and awaits that one smile or a comforting word from us, as all of us fight battles within ourselves in a big or small ways.
Try and don’t be judgmental about others just be jovial and gay and spread love ,happiness and kindness as we are unaware of the miracle it could bring to the ones around us; Yes, Goodness and Kindness is infectious too, the more we spread it around the more will come to us. Let’s grow together; Cheer up; give a smile; be happy....whoever the recipient might be; Let the happiness keep spreading, helping each other to outgrow and out shine by and large.
“The habit of being uniformly considerate towards others will bring increased happiness to you.”
