Law Of Attraction: You Can Do It Too! ~ Part 9

Lesson #9:  Random Act Of Kindness

A random act of kindness is a selfless act carried out to either assist or cheer-up an individual or even animals at times. There will generally be no other reasons apart from making people smile or happy. Irrespective it’s spontaneous or planned in advance, random acts of kindness are very easy to practice. What we need is an open heart and a helpful approach.

Random acts of kindness need not necessarily be only in the monetary sense. Open gestures or anonymously, it could be as simple as sending a silent blessing to a stranger or leaving a note of encouragement for someone or extending a helping hand to cross a busy street or a blood donation or just offering a compliment, a smile, a listening ear and so on.

Practising a random act of kindness is an expression of abundance. It dissolves our thoughts and feelings of lack. Kindness comes from generosity and love. Extending kindness shows our awareness of the abundant generosity and love in our possession that we want to share with others, whether people we know or complete strangers. Committing an act of kindness to benefit others without expecting or accepting anything in return feels good. Likewise, it feels good too when someone does the same to us. It’s gratitude in motion. These ‘feel good’ feelings transform our negative energy, lifting our spirits high and positively. The Universe recognises the positive energy and delivers more abundance in our way.

Opportunities to do a random act of kindness are available at any time, everyday and everywhere. Most of the time we just do not realize how many and how often they are happening right in front of us. We need to slow down alittle, ponder for awhile and recount a single act of kindness we’ve done or done to us today. They may be small and unnoticeable until we really give it our attention.

When we practice random acts of kindness, people in turn become inspired by our actions. If this spirit of giving and helping spreads, the world will become a much better place.

A Tip:  Existingly, there’s a Random Act Of Kindness movement since the 1980’s. Do check out http://www.actsofkindness.org and be inspired by how the world’s communities are encouraging this unselfish act of sharing abundance. The ‘Random Act Of Kindness Week’ has been observed annually during the months of February or March while the annual World Kindness Day is celebrated every November 13th.


Life is a succession of moments. 
To live each one is to succeed.

I prefer to perform them anonymously. In part because I don't want to be thanked and in part because I think it makes more of an impact.

agree with RicAdeMus, i do it anonymously too. kindness is kindness regardless of...

Hi RicAdeMus & Lily, as long as it comes from the heart, that's all that really matters.
