One Good Deed Per Day – The Spiritual Medicine

One Good Deed Per Day

Many times when asked, “When was the last time you did something for someone that is really enriching and self-satisfaction for yourself ?”, I wasn’t able to recall.

However, today I just did something really insignificantly simple but makes myself really good.
You see, this morning I was at a coffee place near my home for my breakfast and the place is really crowded with people. But the shop is under staffed with only one old man running around taking orders. Seeing this, I decided to go to the counter and “self-service” my orders (making it faster as I am in a bit of a rush).

After ordering, I took my food and coffee and sat myself down at the nearest table close to the ordering counter and continue seeing the Old Uncle hurrying around taking orders, delivering them and back to placing orders again.

There was this gentleman that was sitting next to the table beside me and has ordered a cup of coffee from the Uncle. When the coffee was prepared, the Uncle was running around the shop, coffee in hand, forgetting who has placed the order. He was kind of tired and exhausted with the morning “exercise” running around the shop serving customers.

So, I simply waved to him and pointed to the gentleman that has ordered the coffee. Thinking that I wanted to place my orders too, the Old Uncle walked towards me, cup of coffee still in his hand.

When he approaches me, I simply said to him – “Uncle, this is the gentleman that ordered his coffee.” He suddenly realised what I am trying to do and nodded with a faint and exhaustive smile back to me. Appreciating that he does not have to go around finding the customer for the coffee.

To me, it was a simple and small deed that does not require much effort but it gave me great satisfaction that by doing so, I have helped the Uncle and make his job a little easier. It is such moments that reminded us that all of us can make the world a better place by doing one good deeds per day. It does not need to be really heroic, not something that has to be really impactful and need to be involved in some kind of volunteer organisation, IT CAN SIMPLY BE – helping a fellow human being that is in need at that moment. Something like helping someone crossing the road, helping someone that is carrying too many stuffs, helping someone that needs a seat on the public transport.

Such simple good deeds can be really effortless, but it really does give a warming feeling to the one that is “Giving”, as well as someone that is “Receiving”. So – “When is the last time that you remember yourself doing something good for someone ?” “Have you done something good for someone today?”

Good deed – Is to do something right even when no one is watching.

Came across this wonderful news and thought to share with everyone :

A Miami Senior High School student Cristhian Reyes had his lost wallet but was returned by a total stranger with an unexpected condition attached.

Instead of asking for money in exchange for the wallet, the anonymous finder filled Reyes’ wallet with $20 apparently added and a note that read, in part: “I added $20 to it so you know the world is a great place. Do me a favor and when you get the chance, do something nice for someone else.”

Letter found

This act of kindness was committed by the stranger two days after Reyes, a high school senior, lost his wallet while attending opening day for the Florida Marlins.

In Reyes’ wallet, he had his high school ID, along with his driver’s license and $60 cash, tucked inside his wallet. When the man found the wallet, the $60 apparently was gone but Reyes’ high school ID was there – so the man brought the wallet, in an envelope along with the note, to Miami Senior High on Friday morning.

Would you have done the same thing if you are the one in the story to do the right thing and “pay it forward” ?

A good lesson on the real act of kindness.
