This is the first of 10 weekly reading assignments and kind action recommendations using the book “The Power of Kindness” as inspiration.
Reading: Read the Introduction & the chapter called “Honesty.”
Please read slowly, putting the book aside when you find your mind wanting to consider something further or when you find yourself connecting something in the book to a situation or story from your life. Pay attention to these. Write them down, or take notes in the book.
Kind Action: Practice Being Transparent in Your Interactions
In the spirit of this week’s chapter, I encourage you to put into mindful practice the concept of transparency. Look for an opportunity to engage in an act of transparent kindness and then complete it.
Is it by being honest with someone when your temptation is to talk around the truth? If so, as stated on page 16, be honest using intelligence and tact.
Is it by being honest with yourself, perhaps by recognizing a problem rather than pretending there isn’t one, as described on page 17?
Or is it by saying no when you really want to say no, instead of saying yes?
Original Kind Living Art from Fish Astronaut!
The first series of Fish Astronaut’s Kind Living art is officially on sale. He has created a set of three 6″ x 6″ paintings that can be purchased for $100. They are individually hand-painted and you’ll get the actual paintings themselves, not prints. And since they’re hand-painted, no two will be exactly alike. Of the six sets of this first series he’s created, only two remain. Email me right away if you want to reserve a set! –Andy
