Be a Rainbow Today!
‘The thing to do, it seems to me, is to prepare yourself so you can be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud. Somebody who may not look like you. May not call God the same name as you call God – if they call God at all. I may not dance your dances, or speak your language, but be a blessing to somebody. That’s what I think.’
Hello beautiful souls,
What do you think? Do you know how easy and effortless it is to be a blessing to someone else? I love the image of being a rainbow for someone who is having a cloudy day. The joy of rainbows is that they appear naturally and gently when the atmospheric conditions are right. They cheer people up, they make us look up in wonder and fill our hearts with joy at the splendour of their simplicity.
You can be a rainbow for someone. It takes no energy to have the right atmospheric conditions within your heart. You are a human being with the in-built capacity to love. It is as easy to have a kind word, a smile, a gesture of warmth as it is not to, and to scurry around with your head down, or to snap at someone who is short with you. Physically, it actually takes less muscle energy to smile than to frown! Blessing another with your kindness is simple, natural and gentle just like a rainbow.
Even more glorious is that one rainbow can make a difference to many people’s in a day; thousands can see it and feel uplifted. How can we measure how far their newly raised spirits will then affect others they meet? There is simply no telling how many people can be positively affected by one rainbow on a rainy, cloudy day. Imagine what changes you can make in the hearts and minds of humanity today by being a human rainbow.
Are you ready? I will be a rainbow today, will you?
I love you, humanity,
