Pure Heart

Pure Heart

Let me tell you something about doing what’s right. Not many people are capable of it, because sometimes doing what’s right can cause conflict between your wants and needs, and that’s the reason why doing the right thing can seem so inconvenient and uncomfortable.

People who are pure at heart do the right thing even when it may seem the most foolish thing to do. It can cause them hurt and pain, years of sacrifice, yet they cannot back away from such opportunities, big or small, because their conscience wouldn’t allow them to.

I’m talking about random acts of kindness, helping a loved one or putting complete strangers first. Empathising with what another person is going through and risking your well-being so that that soul can find, even temporary, peace.

We live in a world that has lost its values.

We are surrounded by those who either claim they’re doing good by others, or those who expect to learn about the “good people” populating our world through newspaper articles and tv shows (I honestly doubt that’s where we find them).

A pure heart should be kept secret, it should never be turned into some sort of publicity stunt, news story or sympathy campaign among friends, as it never seeks approval or trophies.

That neighbour we criticise could be that someone, cause God forbid a disreputable soul should find out where that type of Soul resides.

… maybe what I’m saying isn’t true, but I must admit I’d like to think they’re just hiding.
