“You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.” ― Kahlil Gibran

So often, we hesitate in helping others. We presume our hearts are just not big enough, or that what we might do couldn’t possibly have a much greater impact.

At times, it almost seems, as if we talk ourselves out of this process of reaching forward a helping hand—so much so, that we tuck them deeply back into our pockets, avert our eyes and walk away.

And, if we are really human at heart—we’ll shrink a bit, when guilt returns to ask, “Why didn’t you just…?”

Exactly, “Why didn’t you just…?”

Everything matters in this world. Every little thought, and even the smallest of dreams.

And, it all comes down to one decision point—whether to reach out and help, or simply walk away.

So, let me ask you—what can you do to help someone else today?

Watch this most touching video demonstrating simple acts of compassion caught on film—these unexpected moments of loving-kindness and true regard for human life are what give me hope each day.

Everything matters in this world—and, together, we can all make a much greater difference.

    Walking the path of the bodhisattva – kindness and compassion. This was just beautiful. Thank you for sharing. It is wonderful to see that the basic goodness of humans will always shine forth. We just have to look for it.
