A couple of days ago, I read an article of an elderly man who was 107 years of age, who was a young boy during the Spanish Flu. He was asked many questions, but the one that stood out to me was, “how did everyone get back on their feet?” His answer was simple, “we all helped each other.”
It wasn’t about, “if I help you, how much are you going to pay me?”, it was about just helping with no expectations of receiving any money. Greed did not get in the way.
I understand that times are different right now, but really, are they that different? Could we help each other recover from this old World we lived in, in order to move into the New World?
I’d like to believe we could!!
My vision for our new way of living, is one of Peace. Where we smile at our neighbor, not because it is the right thing to do, but because we sincerely “feel” it in our heart. Where we help each other with our time, not because we are expecting money in return, but because we sincerely “feel” it in our heart. Where we give to each other of items we can spare, not because they will owe you one day, but because we sincerely “feel” it in our heart.
No expectations from anyone; just doing good for everyone! Acts of Kindness!!
I really believe we can do it! Going back to the old days! Community! Self Sustaining! Neighborly! Helpful, friendly, and kind!
With Good Vibes Only – The New World!
