Re: IMPORTANT Request
What a great idea.The love coming out of GLP now is wonderful.

You know, I also think one of the best things any of us can do for others is to stop judging them.

Everyday we judge others negatively on the flimsiest of appearances or knowledge. Especially those who are more vulnerable, 'less important'. Then we treat them accordingly, dismissively, unkindly, excluding them.

Psychopaths aside, inside every human being there's a heart capable of profoundest love and a history of hurts from callous people who've judged them and taken advantage of them.

Listening to people's hearts is a wonderful gift - our compassion is the greatest gift we can give.

It's much harder than doing something for others. It's a way of being, makes you see the world and other people completely differently.

Seriously, I believe that a massive renewal of compassion is the only way humanity is going to survive what's coming. It's the only thing we have to fight the psychopaths in power and it's far more powerful than any amount of money or military might.

Re: IMPORTANT Request
Thanks to everyone who replied on the thread!
I'll be keeping an eye on it to see who's done
their kindness for the day.
I agree with a few posters that one should not
have to be paid for a deed of the heart...but
a little incentive to be thinking about others now
and then doesn't hurt. Besides, it gives me a chance
to do a good thing! :-)
Thanks for the Karma to all those who gave.
Very soon, I'll be able to afford I give away that free
month!!!:-)

Re: IMPORTANT Request
Over the past twelve hours or more, I have
seen the "milk of human kindness" run over
on GLP and it warms my heart.

So, let's take it a step further. I challenge every one
of you to do one kindness (or more) for someone
every day for one week..online or offline,
doesn't matter...then post it on this thread.
At the end of one week,whoever has done the
most and reported it here gets a free months membership
on GLP courtesy of yours truly.


Sure, people could make stuff up just for the membership,
BUT at least it gets folks thinking of ways
TO be kind.

So, whaddya say? Who's up for it?

Lets keep this post visible so that whoever wants
to participate in the "challenge" can do so...although
I do hope the warm spirit keeps on gathering momentum
on its own.
We CAN be loving and turn this sad old world around.
I know we can!!! :-)

Re: IMPORTANT Request
Guess I'll be negative Nancy..

What's to stop someone from simply claiming 'good deeds'?

Also, aren't all these good deeds just for selfish reasons?
Remember there's no such thing as a selfless act.

It's entirely possible that people may do stuff for
selfish reasons or make up stories but at least it

just themselves or their own situations.

The last good deed I did, was jumped this mother and *hot* daughter's car on the 23rd when they were trying to get home from christmas shopping. If I see someone in need, I lay a helpful hand, but it's hard to go out of your way to find people that need help.

Re: IMPORTANT Request
Me, I do not have a lot of extra to offer myself. But today, I took the guys from the rooming house down the street who always go tot he church and soup kitchen to eat, to the local grocery store and we shopped and filed the fridge with yummy food for a week and some great snacks and drink. Only spent $189.47 but they said they got everything they wanted and were very happy.


I was inspired by all the good being done on GLP, posted not for rewards and accolades for my good dead, but to inspire another so we can keep it going this holiday season.

Re: IMPORTANT Request
We've been this for a couple years. I requested that each family member do at least one random kind thing a week. Then while at the dinner table we share stories. It is so amazing to watch the children's faces when they tell their tale. After a while it become normal to be nice, to offer help and assistance or even a smile.
