The Soundtrak of Your Life: Day 15 - Try a little Kindness
Jalál (Glory), 9 Mulk (Dominion) 176 B.E. - Saturday, February 15, 2020

Artist: Glen Campbell
Title: Try A Little Kindness


Lyrics1

If you see your brother standing by the road
With a heavy load from the seeds he's sowed
And if you see your sister falling by the way
Just stop and say "You're going the wrong way"

You got to try a little kindness, yes show a little kindness
Just shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness then you'll overlook the blindness
Of narrow-minded people on the narrow-minded streets

Don't walk around the down and out
Lend a helping hand instead of doubt
And the kindness that you show every day
Will help someone along their way

You got to try a little kindness, yes show a little kindness
Just shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness, then you'll overlook the blindness
Of narrow-minded people on the narrow-minded streets

You got to try a little kindness, yes show a little kindness
Just shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness then you'll overlook the blindness
Of narrow-minded people on the narrow-minded streets

Glen Campbell was one of my mother's favorite singer and actors. Mom never said which one of his songs was her favorite. "Try a Little Kindness" is my favorite song. When I found out he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease it was almost as big a shock as when my mother was diagnosed with the same disease.

One of the biggest problems in the world today is that there isn't enough kindness being shown. If we showed more kindness to humanity and to Earth's environment, we would be a lot better off. Kindness has to be shown to everyone, not just a person's friends and family. If each individual did one random act of kindness each day it would spread because kindness is contagious.

DAY 2647: "One who knows how to show and to accept kindness will be a friend better than any possession." ~ Sophocles What do you think? Which is more difficult to show kindness or to accept kindness?

Accepting kindness is sometimes easier than showing it, but not always. When I was younger, and more immature than I am now, I went through phases where it was difficult to do one or the other or both at the same time. I didn't have problems (most of the time) with family. My main problem was showing kindness when I was driving, and in a hurry to get somewhere. As I matured, and drew closer to God, I found it easier to do both. Sometimes I still have problems, however, I'm working on it and each day I become better at showing kindness to both my fellow human being and myself.
