Good Morning, Agents!
Reports coming in to International Kindness Team HQ indicate that our compassion efforts are working! Our super-structure for spreading compassion and goodwill has taken form and is being positively felt all over the planet.
However, intelligence also indicates that there may be a practice which is inhibiting the full potential of our actions. We have learned that many of us take for granted those places most familiar to us. Such practice, compounded by time, can cause what our IKT scientists refer to as "neighborhood blind spots."
Your mission today, should you choose to accept it, is to consider and, if appropriate, address a neighborhood blind spot you may have. We recommend three steps to best accomplish this:
- Step outside your residence and tour whatever you consider to be your neighborhood. Visit the familiar but try to look at it as if you are seeing it for the first time. As you tour, take note of how much is new to you, how much you've never seen before, and what you may have failed to notice before. This part of the mission is designed to get you to consider the familiar with fresh eyes.
- As you conduct your tour, look for opportunities to do something positive as defined by you. Try not to plan your outing on positive actions, but let them appear to you. Be open to them. Are they for a person, a group, a particular age? Are they for another species? For the environment? Or are they for some combination?
- Choose one of the positive actions you identified, one you can complete today, and then do it. Consider the act as having its own integrity and your job is to honor that integrity.
Should your actions or those of any of the IKT be exposed, it will increase the positive ripple effect of creating more kindness in the world. Therefore, please report your activities on the Compassion Map.
