“Random acts of kindness ...”


                                   Today I have decided to share with you something
                                           that I have started nearly 9 years ago.               
                       Something that might be needed right now even more than before.

                     Here it is ...

                                                                                             10th October 2004 (Sydney, Australia)
   Hi ... my name is Olga.

If you value harmony and peace, please allow me to share this short story with you.
The other day I watched a very inspiring movie based on a true story titled “The Last Brickmaker in America”. It not only brought tears into my eyes, but also an idea into my heart.

We often do not pursue our ideas for one or another reason, so they stays locked in our heart like a caged bird whose song may only be heard by one person. But if this bird was to be set free, more people would have a chance to enjoy his song.

About two years ago I was preparing material for a new one-day workshop.
I ended up with so many ideas that it became impossible to condense them into a seven-hour time frame, and consequently it was easier for me to place it into a “too hard basket”.

The earlier mentioned movie had not only reminded me of the essence that I had planned to convey through this particular workshop ...

           “Just because of our weaknesses and imperfections
             we should not stop ourselves from sharing our strengths with others.
             The more we focus on sharing our strengths,
             the more our weaknesses and imperfections will dissolve in the process.”

                                                                                          ... but it also prompted me to act on it!

   An invitation ...

                               ... to embrace my simple idea on sharing our strengths.

    At first:

Extend three acts of kindness to strangers.
These acts can be very simple...
  • help a mum to carry a pram up the stairs
  • help to catch someone's hat blown away by the wind
  • if you see a car in a shopping centre car park with the lights left on,
    advise the information desk of the registration number
The number “three” is only symbolic and you may choose to do more or less acts of kindness, or adopt this as an annual ritual.
There is no copyright on this idea, although may I ask you for one thing ...
Please, let the intentions behind it to remain pure and unconditional.
Once you open your heart, you will see many opportunities.

When you have extended an act of kindness, please forward this letter to another person. However it is important that you forward this letter (or print and drop to someone's letter box) after you have conducted your act of kindness, as this will increase a positive energy held by it.
Think of the act of kindness as a stamp required for posting/emailing of this letter.

    My wish:
I would love you to share with me any special experiences that have arisen from your participation in acts of kindness with hope of gathering enough stories to create a blog, and to allow your words (with your permission) to inspire even more people into extending their acts of kindness ... just one of the strengths we all have in us!

Please remember that every act of kindness offered by you will help to rebuild harmony on our planet, just like every water drop will help to create more rain. A multitude of small actions is often by far more powerful and lasting than one big one.

    Thank you!                                                                   harmony4uandme@hotmail.com               
                                                              Love & light,
                Now, I would like to give you a link to something as special
                                        as the icing on the cake ...
