Kindness in a Blanket or in a Plastic Bottle or in a Life Jacket – By Carmelene Melanie Siani

Compassion and kindness …. go such a long way!!

At the end of my yoga class the teacher came over and adjusted my blanket so that my feet wouldn’t get cold during the final meditation.

For some unknown reason, I was so moved by her simple gesture that tears actually fell from my eyes.

In my mind I knew that it wasn’t because she did that one single thing for me that I wept, but because at that same moment I was flooded with the awareness of other people doing other tender, seemingly meaningless things like that all over the world. I saw hands reaching out to offer bowls of food. I saw backpacks full of plastic bottles of water. I saw a woman clutching a life jacket that brought another woman’s five-day-old infant to shore.

I saw so much kindness in my mind’s eye that the scenes flowed out from behind my closed lids and spilled over.

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
