The actions of men are the best interpreters of their thoughts.
When we discuss Chaos Theory (whether we understand or don‚€™t), we inevitably start with they idea of the Butterfly Effect, where small changes at the outset of a system can have profound effects on the outcome.
Now, I‚€™m not so concerned about the butterfly in New York affecting the weather in Shanghai. What I do worry about, however, is the chain effect of our human interactions with one another.
It‚€™s the little actions that matter.
Earlier last year, Thai Life Insurance launched the first of a series of commercials. It went viral, and is known as ‚€œUnsung Hero‚€. If you haven‚€™t seen it, here it is.
Every day, the unsung hero does a series of small, kind acts. Some look on disapprovingly or with a jaded heart. It then asks:
What does he get in return for doing this every day?
He gets nothing.
He won‚€™t be richer,
Won‚€™t appear on TV‚€”
and not a bit more famous.
What he does receive are emotions.
He witnesses happiness,
Reaches a deeper understanding,
Feels the love,
Receives what money can‚€™t buy:
A world made more beautiful.
Little actions. Small kindnesses. A more beautiful world.
Here‚€™s another story from the same company that was just released earlier this month. You can keep up with all of their videos on Thai Good Stories, a website set up by Thai Life Insurance to promote more of these stories.
There are always chances around us to do good. Let‚€™s not let those moments for little actions to pass us by.
The result will be a world made more beautiful.
A right act strikes a chord that extends through the whole universe, touches all moral intelligence, visits every world, vibrates along its whole extent, and conveys its vibrations to the very bosom of God!
