I had a bad day, and I felt its lasting impact while I was doing my meditation the next day. I was aware of being super restless and unable to concentrate well. At that moment, I decided to go out and do an act of kindness. I already had some ideas in my mind.
The good thing about using the Black Lotus app regularly was that I was mindful of my thoughts. I became aware that I was unable to concentrate, unlike before, where I would have just flowed with my thoughts.
I reached a crossroad where a kid came to me, asking me for some money. I told him that I would not offer him money, but I would pay for food if he were hungry. He said he wanted to have a burger. We reached the nearest store and bought some burgers, a cold drink and a bottle of water. Then I gave him a little money so that if he wanted anything else, he could buy it for himself. I was about to leave the place when three more kids came and asked for ice creams. Seeing them four more girls came rushing, they all wanted ice creams and pizzas too. I bought it for them, and then I left. I felt bad that they had to beg on the streets instead of going to school and studying.
I felt supercharged, overcome by a feeling which I am unable to put down in words. I had the clarity of who I am, and what act befits me. I was filled with happiness, and my restlessness was gone.
When you feel restless try kindness. I know it works. ❤️
The result of a kind act is instant, as is its impact on us. So be kind!
