Acknowledgement is more important than you might think. As human beings we are by nature a creature who prefers to belong to others. At the same time, we are also each unique individuals and living in harmony is unfortunately no longer a given.
It even seems the frustration, anger and violence continues to increase worldwide. Understandably, people are tempted to withdraw from society and seek solitude: no longer trust human beings are wonderful creatures and question, if there are still Beautiful Souls among us.
However, we have the choice between focusing at the negatives, our limitations, or to acknowledge our positives, our talents, our willingness to live in peace. We also have the choice to gather Beautiful Souls, who share the same hope, believes, values, etc., and include them in our Dreampack(s).
Personally, I never stopped believing in the kindness of our human nature. Therefore, I decided to share, at this little space on Internet (our virtual Dreampack), the Beautiful Souls I come across in the blogging-world.
In 2017 I started to record little video’s to introduce the Beautiful Souls I came across. This takes up more time to create than I anticipated. Therefore, I will keep this option in mind and probably will pick it up again, sometime in the future.
I came up with a new idea:
In The Netherlands it is a custom to send a card to a person to wish, for example, a happy birthday, congratulate with a new born baby, Merry Christmas, or even to pay respect and offer condolences when a beloved one dies. Acknowledge the other persons feelings, happy or sad, and let them know you are with them in thoughts.
Nowadays, these cards are no longer send by mail as much as before due to increasing social media options. The happy cards brought (and still bring) a smile on my face as soon as I opened the mailbox. Someone remembering my birthday, is happy for me for what every reason and thus, let me know he/she cares.
In the world of blogs it became a custom to pass on Awards, also a wonderful gesture to acknowledge a fellow writer, artist, blogger. The paper cards and awards contributed to my idea; to create digital cards to acknowledge other Beautiful Souls out there, just for who they are: unique individuals striving to live in harmony, supporting each other, acknowledging one and another. In addition, because I truly hope my neighbors in doubt will also start to believe again in the Beauty of Humankind.
Click at the topic ‘Visit Beautiful Souls’ at the menu-bar and you will find blogs and websites of the Beautiful Souls I found and, without a doubt, will find each time I challenge myself to search for them.*
Are you ready for that challenge too?
Visit this section (not ready yet) every now and then and get inspired by your neighbors. Acknowledge them by liking their blogs/websites and/or leave a reply. You might even gain wonderful connections!
Another way to acknowledge: share beautiful posts (articles, pieces of art) you come across at the internet. I created the category ‘Other Beautiful Posts‘ for this reason.
Live in harmony with each other; start by acknowledging your neighbor 😉
First I will update the pages I created in the past .
