There is a children’s song with the refrain, “Love is something if you give it away, you end up having more.” The same holds true with the antidote to negativity, the COMPASSION that exists within you. As we hope you experienced yesterday, when you released the antidote you discovered that you weren’t depleting your supply. You actually were increasing it!
Today’s mission, should you choose to accept it, is to choose one of your acquaintances and perform an act of kindness for her/him. Acquaintances are people who exist in our lives somewhere between friend and stranger. We know of these people. We just don’t KNOW them. Maybe this person is your letter carrier, a grocery clerk, or a neighbor you don’t know well. Consider doing something for this person that you would like being done for you should the roles be reversed.
In celebrating one acquaintance, we celebrate all of our acquaintances. In celebrating all of our acquaintances, we celebrate everyone.
Should your actions or those of any of the International Kindness Team be exposed, it will increase the positive ripple effect of creating more kindness in the world. Thus, we at IKT HQ request that you report your activities on the Compassion Map.
Good luck, agents.
