In her book, The Handbook of Spiritual Tools, the author, Rev Lauren McLaughlin writes :
An act of kindness is a single gesture that provides a triple reward. Scientists have proven that when we perform an act of kindness—spontaneous or planned, random or targeted—our brain releases several chemicals, including serotonin, endorphins, and oxytocin. These chemicals give us an instant rush of good feelings. And what is even more interesting is that those same “feel-good” chemicals are simultaneously released in the brain of the recipient of a kind act, as well as in the brain of anyone who observes it. Kindness is a win/win/win experience.
How can week incorporate acts of kindness to our set of spiritual tools and used those acts to bless others and ourselves, is the subject of this Sunday lesson. Join us at 10 AM at Unity Center for Positive Living, 1239 S US HWY 17-92, Longwood, FL. Angie will be our vocalist.
