The Bluebird Patch Thought of The Day: Ahimsa
Ask yourself: Have you been kind today?
Make kindness your daily modus operandi
and change your world.
*Ahimsa means kindness and non-violence towards all living things
including animals; it respects living beings as a unity, the belief that
all living things are connected. Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi strongly believed in this principle. Avoidance of verbal and physical violence is also a part of this principle, although ahimsa recognizes self-defense when necessary, as a sign of a strong spirit. It is closely connected with the notion that all kinds of violence entail negative karmic consequences. Image credit: Broga Melbz
