Life pushes for change, but even as you focus on changing yourself, on your own goals and intentions, look outside of yourself and give a little in small kindnesses, in gestures of appreciation for what you have, forgetting for a moment what you lack. It is often only in getting out of the self that you discover that you are not so bad off after all, and that your own discomforts may be small in comparison with those of others. In this manner learn compassion and awaken your heart to its true desires to give rather than receive. A giving heart is a good heart indeed! And the funny thing is, in giving you receive!

Be the best you can be at being yourself. And what does “being the best” entail? It entails being a kind and loving person, compassionate and open to understanding and embracing all other beings as equal. It entails being gracious and giving, eternally grateful for all that you have, all that you are, and all that you receive, even if it is not much. It entails a certain impeccability in all that you do so that you leave nothing behind for others to have to deal with as you make your way in the world. Being the best you can be entails growing up into all of these mature qualities with a mix of grace and humility, even while seeking always to be even better within the self and in the world you inhabit. Be the best you can be, always, for what else really matters? Begin small–just be kind to another person today.

Let your good heart be your guide. Let it speak through you, that your words may be words of loving kindness, that your thoughts and actions be compassionate, and that your journey be one of considerable meaning. Let these inner things be your motivations, and with intent may they manifest outwardly in abundance.

Align with your heart, following the principles of loving kindness and compassion that it naturally turns to, for though a heart may also turn coldly away it does not lose these attributes for they lie at the core of the human soul. Though turned from for a long time, at some other time, perhaps in some other lifetime, they may reemerge as key players again. Enhance your own heart centeredness, but do not fault others for their lack of, nor try to impose your own. Simply live your days from a place of heart because you can.
