In this world, there seems to be so much discord between human beings who simply can’t get along with each other. Yet you can create a new kindness paradigm.
A paradigm of kindness that exists at all levels of existence.
“Gentleness and kindness will make our homes a paradise upon earth.”
— Cyrus Augustus Bartol
Heaven and Hell are No Geographical Places
“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.”
— John Milton
Create Heavenly Earth
How we live our lives tells us more about ourselves than any words. We can make a heaven or hell out of our lives.
Heaven is when we generously give ourselves the time and energy to be a better human. It is heavenly when we extend our goodness, our talents for the good of others in the world. We then experience an innate sense of lasting happiness and peace. This feeling is symbolic of being in heaven.
Hell is when we fall below the dignity of a human being.
- Behaving in a cruel way.
- Being insensitive.
- Causing destruction towards oneself and others.
These actions are very derogatory to a human life.
The feelings that are generated within one who falls low, is sheer agitation.
Negative thought patterns like hatred and jealousy cause one to feel miserable.
So, heaven and hell are states of mind. It is up to us what we want to create and where do we want to be.
New Kindness Paradigm
“When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace.”
— Dalai Lama
The principles of kindness and gentleness are usually associated with the feminine principle.
Some people see these principles as weakness. But it is not so. It is these qualities in us that runs our lives in the most powerful and balanced way.
It takes no strength to destroy something but it takes a lot of strength to build and maintain things.
It is only with these feminine principles that anything lasting and greater can be built.
Superheroes Who Once Built New Kindness Paradigm
A powerful person is one who understands one’s capacities and uses it for the higher good.
In our history, we have heard of so many stories of warriors who were capable of winning any battle. They had superhero powers yet in many instances, they chose not to fight.
This is because they valued their greater goal. It was not about them. They used their powers for the highest good of humanity.
“The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful than a thousand heads bowing in prayer.”
— Mahatma Gandhi
