Carry Out Kindness
Get Ready Everyone! The Carry Out Kindness project will be launched on August 1, 2010.
This creative project is the brainchild of feng shui mentor Katherine Metz and the feng shui practitioners she works with.
Katherine (Art of Placement)practices feng shui with an eye for beauty,a spirit for healing,and a bit of uncommon sense.
She is a remarkable woman on so many levels and one day will no doubt become the topic of a folktale. For now, the folktale is the Carry Out Kindness project that I've had the good fortune to become part of.
Here is a brief Q&A to give you an idea of what this international kindness wave is all about.
What is Carry Out Kindness?
It’s just one way to encourage kind words and actions, because we know that kindness works—everywhere! It’s a traveling pink sticker reminding each one of us to smile and pass it on. It’s just that simple.
How did this project get started?
The kindness project is our response to the answer to a question. “How do we survive this economic crisis?” The answer, from a master, was to perform one good deed every day.” So, we took his words to heart and decided to encourage acts of kindness around the world.
What do you hope to accomplish?
An August filled with kindness—kindness that overflows the boundary of both the 31 days and the sticker’s place of origin.
What’s the relationship between kindness and Feng Shui?
This work grabs hold and won’t let go. Hearts and minds open, and we find another world breathing in us. At the heart of every method and adjustment is the notion of change. Change your mind, change your circumstance, simply allow for change. And, suddenly, there’s room for kindness.
What’s your relationship to Feng Shui?
For the past 24 years I have chronicled the pure teachings of His Holiness Grandmaster Professor Lin Yun. I have passed them on as a mentor to Feng Shui practitioners around the world. As both a teacher and consultant, I continue to introduce this ancient art and science into mainstream western culture.
How can others participate in this project?
Visit us at http://www.carryoutkindness.com. Look for a vendor in your community and go get yourself a kindness sticker. Take it with you and place it somewhere to create a zone of kindness. Take a picture, send a tweet, and let us know what happens. Be bold. Be courageous. Take kindness to the streets.
Or, you can order kindness stickers of your own and participate as a vendor. We will create a link to your business under Keepers of Kindness.
The beauty of this project is that anyone can participate at any level. What fun!!!
