An investment tip

Posted By on March 10, 2013

We are all keenly aware of the economic situation facing us individually and collectively these days.  High unemployment rates, educational, health and social service programs at risk, retirement accounts drained are but a few of the ways the impact of an economic downturn knocks at our doors causing anxiety and distress.  Sooner or later we will all need to assess our excesses.  What goes up must come down.  What rises must fall.  It’s a perennial law of checks and balances—or we could say the law of change, i.e. impermanence.  The conditions or seeds that we—again, individually and collectively—have put in place are now ripening.  The longer and stronger those conditions were in place and reinforced, the more painful the recovery will seem.  We have to change our investment strategy.

I am not a financial adviser.  I do, however, have a solid investment tip.  It is one that will have no adverse side effects on your bank account, wallet, home, or mental well-being.  You can see an immediate positive return on your investment.  Invest in Kindness.  There are endless applications waiting for this wise use of energy, attention and intention.  Here are a few that I have found and use:

  • Upon first awakening in the morning and/or when you go to bed at night, think of someone you care about and think a kind thought about them.  Wish them well.
  • When you notice pain or discomfort in your body, take a few breaths sending kindness and the wish for relief to those body parts.
  • When something unpleasant occurs in your day, pause for 3 to 5 breaths and feel where you are right then, sitting or standing, and breathing.  This gives the mind some time and space to let go of the discontent.
  • When you notice a self-critical thought present in your mind, decide if you want to continue instilling that kind of thought toward yourself.  If you are willing to consider a change, pause and fill your inner being with kindness for a few breaths.

If the word kindness is too off-putting to you, find a synonym that does work, such as, patience, caring, considerate, gentle, loving, friendly, cordial, understanding, or compassionate.  Feeling more kindness toward ourselves brings more kindness to the world.  The Dalai Lama says something like: my true religion is kindness.  See how many ways you can increase your investment in kindness today, and notice how you feel at the end of the day.  When you know more kindness within yourself, you may find it spontaneously occurring when you are with others.  If we can relieve a few moments of the stress of the world on ourselves and others, it is a good day!
