The higher you live, the less you struggle
The smallest good deed is better than the grandest intention.
Think back to a random act of kindness someone did for you and how good it felt. If you are someone who prides yourself on being self-sufficient, the next time someone offers you a random act of kindness, receive it.
Notice all the times you have opportunities to bestow a kind act on someone and listen to the reasons you don't. Some of the most common excuses are being too busy, not wanting to interfere or be intrusive, or not knowing what to say or do. There are no right or wrong ways to be kind. Dare to push your limits a bit, and take the first step.
Today practice a random act of kindness and tell no one about it.
The higher you live on the levels of awareness, the more likely you are to feel satisfied. This is true because the more aware and capable of making good choices you are, the less you are caught in struggle.
