"The smallest act of kindness is worth
more than the grandest intention."
I am a firm believer in small acts of kindness whether they be random or purposeful, but I also feel that intentions hold great value. Just because someone doesn't act on their intentions, it doesn't mean their intentions are worthless. Think of an intention as a sort of prayer. Many believe in the power of prayer, so why not the power of intention. Whether you extend your hand in a physical sense or in a more esoteric sense, you have extended your hand. Even if the intended receiver never knows of your intention, it holds value. Every thought, every deed, every prayer has power.
What a good analogy: intentions are a form of prayers. I like it. I think when you have good intentions you change the energy around you for the better. The more positive energy the more better! :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks Libby. Positive energy is probably more important than we know.ReplyDelete
I agree. Without an initial intention there is no second step or act.ReplyDelete
