In this “always on, demand driven” world, the focus seems to be placed on our differences instead of all the things we have in common including the universality innate desire to achieve a higher place and purpose. When asked, most of us believe that we are all indeed connected to each other and there is something more than life as we know it. And, when we practice the simple but amazing human experience of being "good neighbors", this belief gets reenforced time and time again as we seem to get as much out of the act as the individual we helped.
If that be the case, why are we surprised when good things happen to us in return ? And, why does it seem that we are conditioned / programmed by default to do just the opposite 99 times out of 100. Looks to me that everyone could benefit from those "little acts of random kindness" !
