Living in New York, I see lots of people every day and often my encounters with them may last for only seconds or moments… maybe I’m going up subway stairs, or sitting across from a person on the train and we both look up and our eyes meet. Often I’m walking down a crowded street and people rush by, bumping into me as they pass, and for a moment I look at them and they at me.
In that split second of connection I have the choice of smiling and sending them positive energy or not. I ALWAYS choose to shoot them kindness through my eye, my smile and my energy field. And its almost always returned. Why?
Because kindness is contagious, and these brief encounters are my opportunity to share and receive love from beings I may never see again.
