The currency of kindness

 “Money is but one venue for generosity. Kindness is an even more valuable currency.”

—Alan Cohen

Imagine you’re in a marketplace. The buzz of conversation, the clink of coins, exchanges happening left and right. Here, cash is king. It’s the universal lubricant, easing transactions, a common language everyone understands.

But let’s step out of that marketplace for a moment. Enter the world beyond, a vast expanse where human interactions bloom in myriad forms. It’s here that a different currency holds sway, not minted in the treasury but forged in the heart. It’s kindness.

This currency, unlike money, isn’t finite. You don’t deplete your reserves by giving it away. Instead, it multiplies. A smile, a kind word, a helping hand. Each act of kindness breeds more. It’s an investment with infinite returns.

Money? It’s a tool, one form of generosity. But kindness? That’s the true gold. It enriches not just the receiver, but the giver too. Every act of kindness, a transaction that makes the world a wealthier place.
