Aloha everyone,

Several years ago I watched the movie Pay It Forward and really enjoyed it. The other day I was thanking someone for an act of kindness they had done and they said, “That’s okay I was just paying it forward.” I did some goggling this morning about pay it forward and was really happy about the results.

I infuse my teaching of the Toltec tradition with the idea of living from a place of dominion and people always ask me how do I do that in a world based on domination. I now have a great answer – pay it forward. Believe me paying it forward will change your life and it really feels good!

Here is a short quote from the book by Catherine Ryan Hyde:

“You see, I do something real good for three people. And then when they ask how they can pay it back, I say they have to Pay It Forward. To three more people. Each. So nine people get helped. Then those people have to do twenty-seven.” He turned on the calculator, punched in a few numbers. “Then it sort of spreads out, see. To eighty-one. Then two hundred forty-three. Then seven hundred twenty-nine. Then two thousand, one hundred eighty-seven. See how big it gets?”

Here is a neat video about a woman paying it forward by being a foreclosure angel.

What three small things could you do to pay it forward today?

With love and aloha,
