Kindness of spirit ~ comes from a genuine & sensitive place. Being kind may be perceived as a weakness by others, but the way in which we treat, regard, consider and speak to others, is one of our strongest influences. I believe there is no greater quality ~ than the act of kindness. Being kind creates a true sense of happiness and satisfaction.
Share your kindness. Just a small act of kindness can impact our world. Our actions shape the way we are living. Different actions create different results; acts of anger and aggression will bring hatred and fighting, acts of genuine kindness will evoke love and compassion.
Performing acts of kindness encourages others to be kind, producing a ripple effect ~ a circle of kindness. Kindness can spread. Be kind.

My daughter invested much of her time last weekend writing a speech to present to her school in an application for junior school captain 2016. We chatted together about leadership and what strengths she could offer the school in this leadership role. She contemplated writing with humour and tossed around different ideas that could attract potential votes. She showed me this final draft and said, ‘Mamma, you teach us to live from our heart, so I wrote this from my heart. The younger kids may think its boring and it’s not funny or flashy, but its who I am’. I can’t tell you how proud I am of this 11 year old who has taken to her stage this morning with kindness and compassion. No matter what the outcome, in my eyes she’s a leader in making a world change in her community.
With Love, Sarah xx
HI, if you don’t already know me, I’m Sienna. I’m here today to let you know why I would make a GREAT CHOICE for your junior school captain 2016.
This term, we’ve been studying the qualities of good leaders. We each researched leaders of our choice and their qualities and presented it to our class. Two of my leaders that really stood out to me, were Mother Teresa and Mahatma Gandhi. Mother Teresa devoted her entire life to helping the poor, homeless and sick. Mahatma Gandhi led India to independence through peace. Both of these leaders were very HUMBLE, KIND, COMPASSIONATE, and everything they did was for the best of their people.
In our current world, there is much hatred, religious warfare, prejudice and fighting. During these times, I believe WE CAN learn a lot from the great leaders; Ghandi, Mother Teresa & Nelson Mandela and bring PEACE.
If I were your school captain, I would lead with FAIRNESS, KINDNESS, COMPASSION and consider everyone. I will listen to each student, teacher, and even the smallest voice will be heard. In my leadership role I would hope to create happiness and harmony in the school community. By setting a good example in our school we can start to make the change the entire world needs. Imagine what 7 BILLION people could achieve if we all respected each other and showed kindness? The world can be changed by our example. Let me part of that change. Vote for FAIRNESS, vote for KINDNESS. Vote for me.

I feel guided to share an element of my recent Dr Brian Weiss workshop with you.
I first attended a Hay House workshop with Brian Weiss three years ago in Coolum, Australia. The experience was one of life’s personal epiphanies. I connected to the very essence of Brian’s spiritual being, which is pure love. Love in its unconditional form had been barren in my own childhood and I’ve spent a lifetime looking for it, to find that true love is within (but that’s another story).
Brian Weiss represents humility, compassion, benevolence, kindness and love on such a high vibrational level that his light is awe-inspiring. He resides in this physical realm in a state of pure love.
On this recent weekend in November ’15 in the heart of Melbourne, Brian Weiss took to the stage in his humble manner, and unbeknownst to many of us, the world was watching Paris fall to its knees. Brain eloquently expressed the crucial importance of spirituality, embracing love, compassion, kindness and the consideration of the good of others.
One of Brian’s metaphorical concepts presented in the workshop has resonated deeply and I wish to share. Brian Weiss asked us to imagine that we were all ice cubes floating around in cold water. Cubes were being emptied from an assortment of ice cube trays. Imagining the cubes had consciousness, Brian asked us to imagine the discussions the cubes would have in the water, “We have neater and sharper edges than you” or “Look at those cubes, they’re dented and misshaped”. These words of difference would lead to arguments and battles. Brian then asked, what happens when the all cubes melt? Every individual ice cube would return to its original state of: water. All the cubes are in fact the same. As to life on Earth, we are all connected. We are from the same source and true spirit.
I truly connected with this metaphor. Brian Weiss also powerfully added during his workshop “There is only one religion, LOVE’. By opening our hearts and living from true heart, we can practice unconditional love and live with empathy, compassion, altruism and kindness.
Only love is real! Thank you Brian for sharing your true heart and true wisdom.
