Once, during the course of his travels, a Pastor arrived at a village where the people were a quarrelsome lot. He blessed them and asked them to prosper and live in that village forever.
In the next village, where the people were peace-loving, the Pastor blessed them too but asked them to abandon the village and disperse. Jose, his close assistant, puzzled by the Pastor’s strange blessings, asked him why he blessed the first village with prosperity though its people were unworthy of it and asked the good people of the second village to disperse.
The Pastor smiled and answered: “The quarrelsome will only spread unrest and friction wherever they go. So I asked them to remain where they were. But it is better for the peace-loving to disperse and take their good qualities with them so that all those who know them can learn the art of peaceful coexistence.”
This is what Jesus Christ asked us to do when he said: – “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Matthew 4:19
Ang pagiging mangingisda ng tao means spreading kindness at pumalaot ka para makahuli ng isda through your kindness. Kindness is an ingredient that makes us happy. Ang kaligayahan means being sincere. Ito ay ang pagiging tapat in your smile (ngiti not NGISI) It means being genuinely interested when you listen to someone speak. It means doing meaningful gestures that will brighten someone’s day or make a difference in someone else’s life. It means being thoughtful of those you know and reaching out to those you don’t know. It means being simple.
Kindness is appreciation sa kung ano ang meron ka, realizing the value in something or someone in your life, and not taking them for granted. It means “pagpapahalaga” and look at how they enrich your life. That means pagpapasa isantabi ng mga kakulangan at pagkilala sa mga nagawang positibo sa iyong buhay, dahil walang bagay o tao na perpekto o swakto sa gusto natin ang ibibigay sa atin.
Kindness is pagpapasalamat. It’s about feeling grateful for what you have, rather than feeling unfulfilled over what you don’t have. Bilangin natin ang mga pagpapala sa bawat oras at makikita natin na ito ay umaapaw sa ating buhay.
Spread kindness. The feelings good.
It’s fulfilling. It leads to a peaceful mind.
“Even when the darkest clouds are in the sky. You mustn’t sigh and you mustn’t cry. Spread a little happiness as you go by. Please try. What’s the use of worrying and feeling blue. When days are long keep on smiling through. Spread a little happiness till dreams come true.” – Sting
