Kindness towards those who deserve it!

While exiting a local librarium recently, I was approached by a little thing in an apparent state of distress. After speaking with her for a few minutes, it was divulged that she was suffering from a 'panic attack.' She was reassured that she was safe, all was under control, no one is bleeding, all she neeeds to do is relax, take a few deep breaths, and possibly some water.

The dictionary definition of "Satanic" is 'profoundly cruel and evil'; I would say certainly so to the deserving, yet we are not one-dimensional, and experience a full range of emotions, enhanced with the appreciation and application of multidimensional perspectives & realizations.

Then what should occur but a shortime later while at another establishment, but previous customers had left their phone at a register. It could have been submitted to the lost & found for the owner to collect at a later time, or, like the Darknight, I could watch for them and notify if still in the immediate vicinity. Feeling rather like Batman, whereupon concluding with My own purchases, took a cursory glance about the premesis, noted they were indeed still in the vicinity, thus notifying whom it may concern, there was much gratitude displayed.

Also quite recently, a wallet was found while at a local laundrette belonging to someone I had been speaking with earlier that afternoon. Upon divulging relevant information, the wallet was returned to her place of employment. I have to admit, there was a certain sense of satisfaction.

In these instances, it is merely a matter of common courtesy and civility, with far reaching results, saving a lot of trouble, while requiring little to none of one's own. As we do not require external celestial parental figures to mandate or monitor our behaviour; we are sovereign, intelligent creatures not necessitating mores, but can self-regulate based on an innate sense of civility. Obviously, you don't need to be part of some blindlight church to exhibit honorable, considerate, or responsible behaviour, just one's own beast senses.
