How many of us would feed a hungry stranger with the last crust of bread left in the house? The prophet Elijah received a prophecy that the land would suffer a years-long drought, and this message from God had come to pass. The Lord sent him to a ravine east of the Jordan River where He sent ravens with bread and meat in the morning and in the evening, and Elijah could drink from a brook, but eventually, the brook ran dry because there was no rain in the land. The Lord commanded Elijah, “Go at once to Zarephath in the region of Sidon and stay there. I have directed a widow there to supply you with food.” When the prophet came upon the widow, she told him she had just enough flour and oil left for a last meal for herself and her son, and she expected they would die of starvation after this final meal. Elijah instructed her not to be afraid, and asked her to make a small loaf of bread for him, then to do the same for herself and her son. 1 Kings 17:15–16 says, “She went away and did as Elijah had told her. So there was food every day for Elijah and for the woman and her family. For the jar of flour was not used up and the jug of oil did not run dry, in keeping with the word of the Lord spoken by Elijah.” Because of the kindness she paid to the Lord's servant, the unnamed widow was blessed with enough to continue sharing with Elijah, and enough for her family to eat until the rains returned. Let's pray. God, you are our steadfast provider. When we have an opportunity to give to those in need, remind us that you bless us with enough to share. Help us to give unselfishly from the abundance you provide for us. Amen.

Although different attributes of our behavior and attitudes, kindness and gentleness are closely related. Both convey a sweet attitude toward others. Kindness is an act as well as an attitude. It reaches out, is sympathetic and soothes the rough edges of life that another person is wrestling with. As you listen today, let kindness become a tangible action in your thoughts and actions by taking in the reality of these living words and letting them be who you are when you are with others.

Parashat Va'yera Abraham's very essence was a reflection of G-d's attribute of kindness, and by bestowing acts of kindness – by emulating his Maker -- Abraham was able to bring others to awareness of the Creator and bring G-dly light into the world. In our illusory world wherein everyone seems to be looking out for themselves and putting each other down, Abraham teaches us that a simple act of kindness, in imitation of G-d's own love, can change the world. In this week's edition of the Jerusalem Lights podcast, we learn that through such a simple act of kindness, Abraham discovered the entrance to the Garden of Eden…thus demonstrating that the road to paradise is literally paved with good deeds! We also learn about Sodom, the Facebook capital of the World. ___ Rabbi Chaim Richman Jerusalem Lights | Torah for Everyone Please support the work of Jerusalem Lights, a USA recognized 501 ( c ) 3 non-profit organization to enable these productions to continue and grow: Paypal: email@example.com or: https://paypal.me/JerusalemLights?locale.x=en_US In the USA: Jerusalem Lights Inc.

Sometimes, we pit these 2 things against one another — like we have to stand up for ourselves OR be kind to others. But kindness and tenacity aren't in conflict. They are two traits that are powerful when possessed side by side.

Memorable Quotes: "If you see what needs to be repaired and how to repair it, then you have found a piece of the world that God has left for you to complete. But if you only see what is wrong and what is ugly in the world, then it is you yourself that needs repair." - Rabbi Menachem Schneerson “When you're full you can give from your overflow and you're not continually depleting yourself.” “Let's get back to putting our arms around each other, no matter who we are.” What You'll Learn: How to create a culture of kindness in your organization and methods to give and receive kindness in your own life. This Episode Includes: Kindness is happening every day, everywhere. People were reaching out and supporting each other during the first part of the pandemic. Let's get back to that. Focusing on kindness has amazing benefits physically. When an organization can focus on kindness, they are helping their employees in more ways than one. When a company has a culture of kindness it affects the reputation of the company. Keeping and retaining good employees is another measure of a culture of kindness. Managers are the leaders who can help create that culture of kindness. Kindness is an inside and outside job. There are ways you can be kind to yourself, which then helps you be kind to others. If you want to see more kindness in the world, make sure your media diet is limited. The size of the kindness isn't that important, it could be small. There is a ripple effect when one person is kind to another. Giving and receiving kindness are both important. Be open to receiving kindness and allow others to be the giver. Three Takeaways From Today's Episode: Add a gratitude practice by taking a moment to think about what you are grateful for each day and add it to your morning or evening routine. There's a lot we can't control, but we can always control how we react. You don't have to have a certain job title to be a kindness catalyst.

#WisdomWednesdays: Letting Go Of Relationships When Love Is No Longer Served We value our relationships, romantic, platonic, or otherwise. So we find ways to make them work no matter the differences we have with the other person. But sometimes, some relationships are just not worth fighting for anymore. Letting go of relationships is difficult, but it may be the right thing to do. You have to know when enough is enough. You have to find the courage to leave when love and happiness are no longer served on the table. In this episode, Rosie and Tessa talk about leaving and letting go of relationships when there's no longer love in them. Part of feeling radically loved is loving yourself enough to know when it's time to move on. They discuss the importance of gaining awareness about the situation and your emotions. They also speak about the nuances of leaving a relationship and facing the discomfort in making that conversation. Tune in to discover the proper actions in letting go of relationships that are no longer serving you! Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode: Learn how to recognize when love is no longer in a relationship. Understand the dynamics of a relationship as a two-way street. Find out how to manage your emotions and control your reaction in confrontational conversations.

A bird flew into Rosie's slider door when she was about to start a breathing practice while recording. Luckily, the bird is safe for now. The metaphor here is, sometimes, life throws us a curveball when we want to gather ourselves. The Anxiety of Failure Tessa has been busy the whole week. But taking a break makes her feel anxious and fearful of failure. The anxiety of failure has been disrupting her sleep. Tessa is learning about the idea of “less is more.” The big lesson for her is learning to say “no” and trusting her intuition. Tracking Your Sleep Rosie owns an Ōura Ring. It's an accurate sleep readiness and activity monitor. How well the Ōura Ring aids you with getting quality sleep will depend on the type of person you are. Rosie hoped to get one for her partner Tory but seeing the data stresses him out. If acquiring the data about your sleep distresses you, it may be better not to get one. Contracting COVID-19 messed up Rosie's sleep. Not getting a good night's sleep impacts her focus and overall function. For the past year, Rosie has been working hard to restore herself and balance her hormones. The Ōura Ring has helped Rosie be militant about her sleep. A Placebo Effect Tessa wonders about the margin of error in technologies like sleep trackers. But she says that what matters is it's working for Rosie. A placebo effect doesn't challenge the efficacy of something working or not working. Meditation can also count as an ancient technology for decreasing anxiety. When Love is No Longer Served in a Relationship Rosie is reading the book Feeding the Soul by Tabitha Brown. The book includes a Nina Simone quote: “You've got to learn to leave the table when love's no longer being served.” The quote is an ethos for Radically Loved. Part of being radically loved is loving yourself enough to know when love is no longer there. Loving Yourself We're quick to blame ourselves for things that might or do go wrong. Learning when to leave the table when there's no longer any love comes back to our relationship with ourselves. Sheri Salata's book The Beautiful No speaks about dealing with the narrator in your brain. Tell the narrator in your brain, "No, thank you—not helpful," instead of indulging a negative thought pattern. A Relationship is a Two-Way Street It's hard to discern when love is no longer present in a relationship that's going well. It becomes a “you” problem when nothing changes with how you feel after years. Have a conversation with the other person and figure out why you feel love is no longer present. A relationship is a two-way street; if you're not contributing to it, you're contaminating it. Being in a relationship is a practice. It's a matter of recognition and what you do with that awareness. On Codependency Tessa's first long-term monogamous relationship was codependent. She felt there was potential if only the other person would do X, Y, and Z. It took Tessa six years to learn the lesson in that relationship. A lesson gets repeated until you learn it. At times, she still feels parts of that way of thinking. Letting Go of Relationships That No Longer Serve You Leaving a relationship that's not serving you anymore also applies to friendships, work, and family. There are nuances in letting go of relationships. Sometimes, it's necessary to leave the person; sometimes, you only need to set boundaries. It's a matter of mutual respect, acknowledgment, and expression of feelings. There's no one answer. But you'll need to know your values and what you need to do, and remain open-minded to understanding yourself and the other person. Feeling Discomfort in Confrontations You don't have to lack compassion or empathy; you only need to pay attention mindfully. Most of us want to hit the fast-forward button any time we feel discomfort. But sitting through the feeling becomes easier if you do it over time. It takes a lot of courage for people to speak their truth. Another nuance that comes into play in the discomfort of having the conversation is powerful emotions. Not everyone has strong role models in showing up with their emotions healthily when faced with this conversation. Controlling Your Reaction You can't control the other party's reaction; what you can control is your own. Rosie recommends going straight to the source when you can't control your reactivity. You have to look at how you're living your life as a whole. Practice, sleep, stress, women's hormones, and other things can compound into reactivity. How you express yourself would also depend on the type of dynamic you have with the other person. You don't necessarily have to let out negative feelings directly to another person. You can direct it to the air, on paper, a voice note, etc. Allowing the Cycle of Emotion to Move Through Allow the cycle of emotion to have its full revolution. Pause before you let a negative part of yourself take over. Still, your reaction would depend on where you're at as a whole in your life. It's all valid and part of the human experience. An emotional explosion is a build. Your mind will corroborate what the body feels. Rosie's bio-hack for emotional explosions: relax your shoulders and take big deep breaths. It will dissipate your emotional charge by at least 30%. Ways To Manage Emotions on Your Own Write a letter, and let the rage out on paper. Go on a drive, and scream at the top of your lungs Toss an old chair or a journal in a backyard bonfire. The liver is associated with the emotion of anger. What you eat or drink can also affect how you're feeling as well. You can also do Yoga Nidra, listen to binaural beats, or do rapid eye therapy. These practices balance the brain and bring you into the present moment. The Body as a Miracle Conduit The body is a miracle conduit for moving forward. Reverse engineering is critical in achieving the results you want during teacher training. We will continue to repeat the same cycles unless we find what works for us. Therefore, we practice building a reservoir of awareness, wisdom, and knowledge. Coming from a place of acknowledgment and awareness will allow us to hold each other up as equals. 5 Powerful Quotes [07:14] “The metaphor is that just when we want to gather ourselves, sometimes, life just throws a curveball or sometimes a bird… We can learn so much from nature.” [19:04] “Part of being radically loved is loving yourself enough to know when love is no longer being served and having the courage or the empowerment to get up from that table and move on.” [26:50] “We don't just throw people away. I think that's where the nuance comes in. Just because I'm leaving the table, doesn't mean I'm leaving the room.” [33:27] "Sometimes those feelings need to come out. You need to be able to be angry." [42:02] “We're in the school of being a human. Unless we can find what works for us and different ways to establish new neurological pathways, new patterns, new habits, we're going to continue to repeat the same cycles over and over.” This episode is sponsored by: Audible Visit Audible.com/loved or TEXT LOVED to 500-500 to get your 30 day free trial.

We all have big dreams for our little people, and there are so many ways to define success: finding purpose in life and work, reaching goals (whatever those might be), surrounding yourself with loved ones, to name just a few. Psychologists have pointed to a variety of practices that can help our kids achieve these things. Spending time with your child is a major one; others include letting your child make decisions and prioritizing kindness. Jessica Rolph welcomes Esther Wojcicki to today's episode to talk about raising successful children, her area of expertise. Her daughters, Susan, Janet, and Anne, are some of the most powerful women in Silicon Valley. They are respectively, the CEO of YouTube, a professor of Pediatrics at the University of California, San Francisco, and the Founder and CEO of the genetic testing company 23andMe. Esther, also known as the Godmother of Silicon Valley, is the author of How to Raise Successful People: Simple Lessons for Radical Results. Key Takeaways: [2:17] Did Esther set out to raise CEOs?

A hard-hitting pandemic spurred an initial, unexpected rise in kindness. But before long, we settled back into our old ways. Could your business use a lesson in ramping up kindness? In this episode of the Transform Your Workplace podcast, Linda Cohen — expert, author, and speaker — brings kindness back to the forefront of the workplace conversation. Listen in as Linda Cohen shares touching stories and drives home the idea that kindness affects everyone and everything it touches, even a business's bottom line. TAKEAWAYS If a business's reputation is affected by unkindness, it inevitably affects the bottom line. Creating a culture of kindness is an opportunity for you and your organization to think about what would elevate your level of inclusivity. When asked what holds them back from being kind, people tend to answer the same way: stress, fatigue, and time. Communication from leadership needs to be supportive and open so that employees feel encouraged to share their thoughts and concerns. GUEST AT A GLANCE We welcome Linda Cohen back to the podcast. Nationally recognized “kindness expert,” speaker, and consultant, Linda is well-versed in how to incorporate kindness into workplace culture. Author of two books, Linda is passionate about seeing leaders and employees walk in kindness, ultimately resulting in business success. A QUICK GLIMPSE INTO OUR PODCAST

By understanding the classic human needs of community and desire for connectedness, she has been able to tap into a newfound level of kindness. Jeannette shares her desire to push kindness into areas where it isn't currently existing and the strength behind humility for one another.

#191 This week, my wonderful guest is Dr. David Hamilton. David is a writer, speaker, columnist, and scientist. Our conversation today revolves around David's newest book, Why Woo-Woo Works. In his book, David provides scientific explanations to all the “woo woo” things we encounter in our lives. His goal with the book is to not only help practitioners of anything woo woo to have more faith in themselves, but to also educate sceptics and help them understand these things. We talk about the definition of woo woo, how crystals actually work, the placebo effect, and how our perception and way of thinking actually affects our reality. If you're someone who may be feeling stuck in their current trajectory and wish to lead more from the heart, then this is definitely the episode for you. "The world that you experience, is consistent with your thinking and what you believe. It's not that you're actually physically changing things, but you're literally flicking to a world that's entirely consistent with what you've just thought.” About David: David Hamilton is a writer, columnist, speaker & kindness scientist. After completing his PhD in organic chemistry, he worked in R&D in the pharmaceutical industry, developing drugs for cardiovascular disease and cancer. Inspired by the placebo effect, and how some people's conditions would improve because they believed a placebo was a real drug, he left the industry to write books and educate people in how they can harness their mind and emotions to improve their mental and physical health. He is now author of 11 books, including the Amazon bestseller, 'The Five Side Effects of Kindness'. He's also a columnist, the 'Kindness Tsar' for Psychologies Magazine, and has been a featured guest on Channel 4's, 'Sunday Brunch Live' in the UK and CBS Sunday Morning in the USA, as well as on several BBC radio shows and podcasts around the world. David is also the honorary scientific advisor for the charity, 52 Lives. He's an advocate for kindness and work passionately to inspire a kinder world.

In God's gracious choice, Gentiles have been grafted in to the beautiful olive tree of God's people. However, we are warned not to become arrogant and prideful towards Jews. All Christians are spiritual descendants of Abraham, and we must continue to follow in his footsteps, in the roof of faith alone! Pastor Micah teaches on Romans 11:13-24 at Shoreline!

Kindness is more important now than ever, as we are adapting to a new way of living; teaching and learning is even more challenging than it usually is. Schools around the globe are having to adapt to online, hybrid learning or face-to-face learning while dealing with all the uncertainty, fear and devastation that comes with a pandemic. It is crucial that we do our best to nurture a culture of kindness in schools. Listen to this episode to learn some ideas but how to do this in your virtual online, hybrid or face-to-face classroom!

We are joined today by Dan Beaumont. Dan is on an epic 4-month journey cycling 10,000km across Britain to raise funds for Mind Over Mountains.At the time of this recording, Dan was on day 90 and about 7000km into his journey heading down the west coast of Wales. He was resting in the beautiful yard of his Warmshowers hosts, Catherine and John, who are feeding him well! Dan has stayed with many Warmshowers hosts along the way and says the theme of kindness has reigned throughout his journey.After graduating from university, Dan left the UK and spent ten years working abroad in Romania, Germany, and Australia. Once back home, he decided to rediscover his country and thought, what better way to do it than on a bicycle. Initially, he planned to take his time cycling around the UK to see the sights, but then his mate Alex, the founder of Mind over Mountains, suggested he turn his ride into a way to help others. Mind Over Mountains is a mental health charity offering immediate and accessible support through therapeutic outdoor experiences. They believe that time in nature, coupled with professional support, is a powerful way to build resilience and re-find stillness.During his trip, Dan has learned some clear lessons of kindness and is amazed at the help he has received from total strangers. They have been there to aid with bike repair, meals, and places to stay or offer a smile and a kind word. Although he is riding alone, he feels like he has a huge support group around him. Patience is also something Dan is learning on this trip! Carrying everything you need for such a long journey will make you slow down and take your time. Dan views this trip as a life journey and says so much has happened since day one. He has experienced many beautiful moments and believes that everyone would benefit from such a journey. Whether it be cycling, walking, or just traveling, take time out from life to experience all that is out there. Dan takes time every evening to try and capture his day in his journal, but sometimes it is too much sensory overload to get it all down on paper.Dan is a data nerd and has developed a database to record the metrics during his tour. In addition, he has been doing some fun interviews with people he has met along the way. He plans to use all of this information and his journal entries to write a book after the tour is complete. His plans also include starting a nature retreat to help people struggling with mental health. Throughout his life, he has always turned to adventure and the great outdoors to heal and wants to help others do the same.Dan's advice to everyone is just to get out and go, but take one step at a time. Start small; an adventure doesn't have to be huge or cross country to be an amazing journey. Use your time for introspection but also put yourself out there and interact with others. If you are hesitating, just go! You will not regret the experience and will come back a changed person. As Dan says, “one is greater than zero!” You can follow Dan on Instagram at DanOBeaumont and learn more about his trip and donate HERE.

We all value kindness. But showing it isn't always easy. Buddhists recognized this problem long ago and developed what may be the world's first and best tool for cultivating compassion: meditation. While most people in the West see meditation as a technique to reduce stress and anxiety, that's only part of the story. Join Dave and his guests Buddhist Lama Trungram Gyalwa Rinpoche, meditation teacher Sharon Salzberg, and psychologist Paul Condon to learn more about how and why meditation is a key to kindness.
