One of our yoga participants inspired me to write about randum acts of kindness simply by her own action. In the technological age where one can find anything on the internet, I first goolged, random acts of kindness and wow, what do you know, there is a website with that name. The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation is a non-profit organization and provides kindness ideas, ideas for educators, lesson plans, stories of kindness and inspirational kindness quotes, etc. http://www.randomactsofkindness.org/
The goal of The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation is to inspire others to practice kindness and pass it on. However you must be kind to ourselves even before you can be kind to others. Be kind to your body and mind. Do not judge yourself. Accept who you are, and tell yourself that you are already perfect. You don’t have to try to change who you are.
Here is a list of 5 golden rules for Living an Enlightened and Good Life as taught by Yogi Anmol Metha, Master of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation.
