[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Let us not grow weary while doing good

And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap
if we do not lose heart. Therefore if we have the opportunity let us do
good to all especially those who are of the household of faith Galatians 5.9

There are some people who have serious challenges in doing good and even so
much so that they call others who are doing good names such as pushovers,
walkovers, sissies and so on! I am talking here about genuine efforts, the
selfless ones, the ones who know their worth so it's not a "free for all"
as we call it where I am from in Trinidad meaning a case where people can
get away with anything!

Doing good is more about the person doing the good than the receiver. To
me, it seems more of a way of life to them. Once one is comfortable in
their skin, knows that we are really all connected and have a strong sense
of self, doing good becomes really natural. And what exactly what do I mean
by "doing good"? Default to kindness, default to compassion, default to a
position of no judgement, be honest and leave the anger and cussing at the
door!

This "good" attitude or default to kindness, I think, can be based on a
person's upbringing or outlook or mindset. It's a case of challenging core
beliefs and those who know better can be an example.

Peace!!!
