Mahatma Gandhi is quoted as saying, "the simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful than a thousand heads bowing in prayer." I don't know about you, but this made me pause and read it a second time. We all know people who profess to be lovers of faith and devoted followers of a religion or philosophy they most resonate with.
Some of these devotees are true models of compassion, kindness and love.
However, there are others whose actions are out of alignment with what they say. All too excited to let us know scripture.
Yet... there is a cavalier judgement and critcism to their thinking that just doesn't feel right to us.
I don't know about you, but I like to keep things simple. Like the motto of the Golden Rule states, "Do unto others as you'd have done unto you." I may not be a biblical scholar or all knowing in the teachings of The Bhagavad Gita, Book of Buddha, the Koran or the Torah. I do, however, understand that being kind is a core, universal teaching.
I have always loved the straight-forward simplicity of the Golden Rule. Be nice. If you don't have anything nice to say, you're not thinking hard enough. Period.
