Are You Okay

“When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen.” – Ernest Hemingway

I had been driving many miles for hours and hours. When I saw the sign for a rest area, I was delighted and the car knew what to do. This wasn’t your normal run of the mill rest area. You had to actually exit the interstate and drive to a remote location away from lights, cars, noise. While I would normally strike up conversations with people, instead I sat outside on a bench and just took in nature, silence, the sight of birds happily pecking bugs off of cars, and I must have looked as tired as I felt. People walked by me to get to the entrance to the rest area and back by me to return to their cars. I watched faces and listened to laughter along with other emotions. One lady passed me by and then stopped and came back to ask, “are you okay?” Wow! I was blown away. In a world where everyone is on their own journey, here was someone who honestly cared if a stranger was okay and if possibly something was wrong! I smiled and assured her I was just taking a much-needed break from the road and thanked her profusely for caring.

Dear Angels, it takes such little effort to show you care – a smile, a kind word, compassion. We get in such a hurry as we fill our lives with things that matter for a minute but are not everlasting. What we give to each other, though, as far as actually “seeing” each other is what will last.

Dear Ones, kindness is compassion in action. When you live your life in an uncaring manner, you become indifferent to how others are doing. When someone pays attention to you and offers a warm smile or word of encouragement, or perhaps inquires about how you are doing, you have encountered someone who is in touch with their inner light. We encourage you to always be guided by your inner light as you encounter others. Let compassion be what moves you to truly see each other and to be kind and caring.

Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.

Today, I promise to always show compassion as I encounter others.
