Good Deeds

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

I stole this from a friend on FaceBook. Isn't this a fabulous way to handle people? I realize it wouldn't work for lots of crimes, but for many wrongdoings, I bet this is very effective, and certainly it is in relationships. So snatch up someone today and remind them of the good they do, the good they are. Affirm those you love. I bet it has a fantastic affect!!

I was recently told of an African tribe that does the most beautiful thing.

Please Share

When someone does something hurtful and wrong, they take the person to the center of town, and the entire tribe comes and surrounds him. For two days they’ll tell the man every good thing he has ever done.

The tribe believes that every human being comes into the world as GOOD, each of us desiring safety, love, peace, happiness.

But sometimes in the pursuit of those things people make mistakes. The community sees misdeeds as a cry for help.

They band together for the sake of their fellow man to hold him up, to reconnect him with his true Nature, to remind him who he really is, until he fully remembers the truth from which he'd temporarily been disconnected: "I AM GOOD".

    Thank you for posting this.
Makes me think, "I'm good at handing out true and positive strokes to others ...Why is it so hard for me to remember to speak affirmations to myself?"

    The site wiped out my well thought out reply but the essence was that from the time we are born we are told many hundreds of times, "No." That creates a tough emotional barrier to break through. -- Lou
