Happy Valentine's Day!
How to become an Angel: Random Acts of Kindness are those sweet or grand lovely things we do for no reason except that, momentarily, the best of our humanity has sprung, exquisitely, into full bloom.
When you spontaneously give an old woman the bouquet of red carnations you had meant to take home to your own dinner table, when you give your lunch to the guitar-playing beggar who makes music at the corner between your two subway stops, when you anonymously put coins in someone else's parking meter because you see the red "expired" medallion signaling to a meter maid--you are doing not what life requires of you, but what the best of your human soul invites you to do.
To become the perpetrator of these acts of kindness, is to become in some sense an angel. For it means you have moved beyond the limits of your daily human condition to touch wings with the divine.
Thought: " I try to give to the poor people for love what the rich could get for money. No, I wouldn't touch a leper for a thousand pounds, yet I willingly cure him for the love of God." Mother Teresa
I love you all,
