Helping Connections

“Never look down on anybody unless you’re helping him up.”

– Jesse Jackson

 

“In nature, we never see anything isolated, but everything in connection with something else which is before it, beside it, under it, and over it.” This quote from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe reminds me that we are all connected in some way to each other and to everything around us. Regardless of how we may see things, if we look close enough, we start to see that every action we take both positive and negative has a ripple effect throughout not only our immediate environment, but also the larger world. If we stop to offer assistance to someone, we may affect them in ways beyond our wildest dreams. How often have you heard someone famous mention the most random event as having a tremendous impact on their lives? So the next time you see someone who could use your help, don’t just pass them by. When someone does something that upsets you, take a deep breath and forgive them. It is these simple acts of kindness that work to change the world for the better. “Remember, there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” – Scott Adams
