Strength and Kindness

There are days when classes seem to transcend all things earthly.  Today was one of those days.
There was the most exquisite feeling of peace that floated through out the room.  When class was over no one wanted to leave.  I wish there was some way to contain that feeling and pass it out whenever needed.

Who knows the mystery of how we reach those levels like we did today.  There was love and kindness permeating every square inch of space in that small room.  I believe each person took something special with them as they left the room.

I know that when that much goodness is felt, it spills over, it has to.  No matter the darkness that each one has seen or felt, the light of goodness and kindness shines bright.  Mindfulness is felt, because of the awareness of being in the now, in the present and nowhere else.

Strength and kindness, it might seem like an oxymoron , but there is strength in our kindness toward ourselves and others.  Some days we have to remind ourselves to show kindness to ourselves and that often takes more strength than showing kindness to strangers.

Tomorrow take the time, find the strength to show not only kindness to strangers but to yourself as well.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams


  1. Kindness is its own strength. It must have been a wonderful feeling for everyone at your class.

  2. Kindness is so important, I think we all need to practice it a little bit more... a lot more in our families as well as ourselves... I am glad you had a great day with such a nice experience xox

  3. What a great day that was. I would call it a very successful day when your efforts get joined by students to produce this atmosphere.

    Have another great day.
