How to live the most meaningful life that you are capable of …

when kindness is abandoned
our immune system weakens
allowing hordes of toxins to invade

these corrupt our body
igniting illness to flare
in very obnoxious ways

they also poison our mind
rending us totally blind
to others innate goodness

our thoughts become harmful
to our self and others
as we spiral down an abyss

so we waste ourselves
and waste our life
always living in strife

 

yet when we adopt kindness
our immune system strengthens
enabling us to avoid illness

we become radiantly healthy
immune to viruses or bugs
able to stay fit and trim

our mind blossoms with joy
and we find useful solutions
to empower and care for others

our thoughts are helpful
kind and concerned with all
making our energy attractive

we live our life to the fullest
radiating good will
boosting a balanced life

 

this is called unity
of mind and body

unity of individuals
to one universal soul

where we support one another
showering kind care

responsible for all we dare
say do or think

we keep morality
for it nurtures love

loyalty and harmony
kindness is the key!

PS
if you’re not part of the solution
then you are part of the problem!

  1. A powerful photo (sculpture) and poem pairing!
    Kindness IS the key! (Weirdly, wowza, right now I am listening to the song Try a Little Kindness, by Glen Campbell. It’s one of my fav songs. πŸ™‚ )
    Kate, thank you for always pointing us in the right direction!
    HUGS!!! πŸ™‚

    • I love that song Carolyn, I had forgotten about it!
      I write about things that are happening in my life as a reminder for myself
      … so when I see lack of kindness I know that there is big trouble for that person 😦

      • So true! And they usually don’t get that they are hurting not only everyone around them, they are hurting themselves most of all. A sad, wasted way to live life. 😦
        Kindness begets kindness! πŸ™‚

  2. Wonderful poem Kate. One realizes it or not but our mental and physical healths are closely related.
    When one is kind and content at heart, the glow on face is evident.

  3. Just read a story of a homeless man who two years ago returned a back pack to a family (seven miles from his location). Years later trying to turn his life around the same family that he returned the backpack to became his sponsors. The man graduated the recover program he was in and wants to become a recovery counselor to help others who were in the same place he had been…. a continuous kindness circle of healing.

  4. And it’s so easy to be kind, to step aside and let the other person move forward…why not? To laugh at one’s own mistake and to listen to someone who wants to say something. I think sometimes kindness can be simply listening to someone else and telling them, “Hey, that’s a very good idea. Thank you.”
    Great post! πŸ™‚
