The Ripple Effect

Darling Tisha! over at Serenity Quest featured a great blogger today; in fact, she asked him to be a guest blogger. Tisha! finds such interesting people out there in the blogosphere. She has a big heart and is witty and generous and well spoken. Her blog is one I want to read every day for the variety and humor and sometimes she poses poignant questions for the rest of us. Hmmmm. Sometimes even heart wrenching.

Her guest blogger is Steve who writes his own blog called Ripple Central. Great name for a really cool blog. Can you guess what the ripple refers to? Yep, one little kindness can cause another and another and on and on. A good deed can start a warming trend!!!

The description on the Ripple Central blog says:
"The Ripple Effect is a shift in perspective that leads to greater connections, better business and stronger community.

Just like stones thrown into a pond, simple actions create ripples in the lives of all the people you touch and sometimes people you have never even met.

Now is the time to make a real difference in your life, workplace or world. Begin to maximize the power of your connections and relationships today, and start to Ripple!"

Start with Tisha!'s blog at Serenity Quest and read the great post by Steve and then visit his blog too!

Let's start a great ripple!

Very interesting. Ripples is also the theme of Basho's most well-known haiku about the frog that plops in a green scummy pond.

First, ripples tend to come back, uhmn, sometimes magnified.

On the other hand, not all the ripples you get washed over with are in any way connected with the ripples you have made yourself.

That is why I am at odds with most concepts of karma (and sin, for that matter)!

The point is, if you treat the world and your fellow humans with respect and dignity, to some extent, the world and your fellow humans will be better than if you were just a rock.

If that in itself is not good enough for behaving like a decent mensch, what use is any rewards in hypothetical afterworlds?

I truly enjoyed having Steve Harper guest blog, his Ripple On concept is the way we should all live our lives...they should take YOU as an example!

Thanks for YOUR contribution to the discussion Technobabe!

I am so grateful for all the encouragement and support you always show me and I can't even express how it makes me I will just say thank you from the bottom of my heart!

♥ BIG hug and kiss!!!

Interesting analogy - it's all too true! Kindness really pays off in ways we can never imagine.

Tags do the same effect too. ;) Well, because you're tagged! =D
