People are so fascinating for me. So many different varieties, shapes, sizes, personalities. Love them all, especially the ones who help me to learn lessons and evolve.

As a spiritualist, I am often asked about my views on religion. My standard response is, like everything in this world, religion has a part to play and lessons to teach. A gentle reminder that if the idea of religion stirs you in some way, there is something to be healed. What I am fascinated and excited about is when someone lives by their convictions and is not afraid to let the world know it.

I share that with you to tell you about what happened last night in the middle of nowhere Nova Scotia.

My husband Allan and I were driving from Baddeck to Louisburg NS. It was dark and we had finally found a hotel for the night. On our journey, we had to make an urgent pit stop. It was dark and we happened upon a restaurant with a neon open sign. Giving thanks to the universe, we stumbled out of our car and headed in. The restaurant was full and there was a line up for the washroom. In the line up in front of us were two Pentecostal ladies who were returning from a convention in Sydney and had stopped in the restaurant for dinner. From one of the ladies, I could sense stress and from the other, I sensed a tremendous peace and love. The second lady was a tiny thing, mid to late 60s with a face that had experienced the world. So much wisdom emanated from her. 

As we waited, we chatted about why we were there. I mentioned Allan and I having difficulty finding a hotel room because of the Celtic Colour festival happening on the island and we finally found one with the help of a very nice lady from a local motel. She talked briefly about the convention they had attended. She was from Inverness and would be home in no time.

As she turned to leave, she put her hand on my arm and asked Jesus to bless me and my husband with an open door so we could rest for the night. She said Jesus was blessing me because I was such a nice person and so lovely. I was humbled by this woman and in awe of her deep belief in her saviour, Jesus Christ. She was not afraid to bless a complete stranger and did it without fear of judgement or retribution. In this world, how many others would have been glad to receive such a blessing from a stranger? I suspect most people would but there may be others who would be mightily offended by this gesture. 

As the two women walked away to continue their journey home, I took a deep breath and could feel Jesus' presence. Not because I knew I could call on him anytime I chose but because this woman lived by the words of the ascended master we know as Jesus. There was a lesson for me in that exchange - remember that only through unconditional love for everyone including the self can we truly live life to the full and be the person we are truly meant to be.

Gifts and lessons come to us in many ways and in many forms. I was blessed last night to have both come in the form of a lady from Inverness NS who I will probably never meet again in this lifetime and who made an indelible mark on my life just because of who she is.

I wish to be just like her and touch people's lives for the better. How about you?

With blessings
Sharon

Simple acts of kindness really inspires me. It is a good thing that you shared this to us. The woman you have met was very kind to let you and your husband spend the night in her home. Nowadays, simple acts of kindness are so rare that they go viral in the internet. But stories of selfless people, like you've shared with us, is a reminder to everyone that reaching a helping hand to a total stranger can be the most fulfilling thing that a person can do.

Your productive and your time to work is two different parts of your work. It can not be said that your productive will be equal to the time you spend for your work.

The world that we live in is composed of different personas. Amidst these differences, we should always leave a mark that is truly remarkable. We should always show that we can bring significant contribution to this world. We can be the light to those who are in darkness. We should demonstrate our love for the people around us.
