Every breath, every heartbeat, every selfless gesture and every act of compassion connects humanity by inseparable bonds through time and eternity. There is a certain mystery about each person’s existence that extends far beyond the scope of our individuality. The term “kindred spirit” implies that we share similar beliefs, attitudes and feelings with others. Kindred spirits—they are the persons who enrich our lives both by their presence and by their absence.
The essence of kindred spirit extends past external pedigrees and connects each person at the heart level. The mindset of kindred spirit gives birth to a decision to esteem others as one would like to be treated. The attitude of kindred spirit says that even when your basic civil rights are being violated, your response should not be retaliation or retributive justice, but showing compassion, mercy and forgiveness.
We are more alike than we are different.
Kindred spirit enables us to do what is in the best interest of another person even when we experience setbacks and suffer loss. Kindred spirit joins hearts and souls and allows us to love others intentionally and unconditionally because we are more alike than we are different.
Embracing a kindred spirit means that the God in me sees the God in you. Accepting our kindred spirit means we are thinking, feeling and experiencing life in a manner that sees love as the commodity of exchange in relationships. To acknowledge our kindred spirit is to increase the vibrational harmony between our realities, which empowers each person with the ability to express abundance toward the other.
Kindred spirit is about letting go of all attachments that prevent us from drinking out of the wellspring of spiritual truths that reside in our collective consciousness. Kindred spirit involves ordaining another human being so that relationship will happen.
Kindred spirit frees us from adopting a lifestyle that betrays our individual and collective values. Kindred spirit means we rise together and fall together. Kindred spirit complements and affirms individual choices. Kindred spirit asks: How can I best help you enrich the quality of your life? In what ways can I assist you in reaching your highest potential?
Kindred spirit teaches us not only how to regard each other but also how to devote our life’s work to serving others better. I experience the blessings of the Universe when I pour out my life as a drink offering for the souls who thirst for relational intimacy. Kindred spirit is fulfilling the highest expression of the divine self.
There is an aching and yearning for humanity to experience kindred spirit. Humanity’s soul longs to experience the gifts of relationship, inclusion, acceptance and community. When we choose to live the gift of kindred spirit, we will find true meaning and life itself.
