    Wow. That was totally cool. Loved it. Some times we don't realize the impact we have on others. I work in a hospital and I try to point out nice things about people all the time. They light right up. It's always the truth, I don't make stuff up to say. It always makes them happy. Me to. Loved the clip. Sure made me smile. :)

    What can I say……………………………..Thank you ! My Grandson (age 8 ) and I have a new game, while we are out and about we smile at people and greet them in a happy way then we count the ones that smile back. He says it makes him happy tp see the people smile cuz most people are very busy and forget to see other people. So thank you for the validation . Kath & Bub

  • ananda says:

    I loved this and have posted it on my Facebook page. Everyone tells me I have a beautiful smile, but like the girl in the video, sometimes there are good reasons for me not smiling — but I got the importance of Validating Others, and that's something to smile about! Thank you! ananda

    The gift of a smile is free, but worth it's weight in gold. a positive comment, an acknowledgement, a compliment and a recognition of the spark of divinity in another brings Heaven on Earth so much closer. Smile like you mean it.
    Thanks so much to all those involved in producing this video, it has opened so many hearts and will continue to do so, all part of the Divine Plan, The Love Revolution.
    Keep watching, keep smiling.

    What a wonderful medley of emotions from watching this video! :-D (Yes, even the tears…) The very thing to make one feel glad to be alive.

    The comments posted here speak volumes as to its much needed effect. My teen wanted to check email — she moaned "but it's 16 minutes" (rolls eyes) — but we sat transfixed, as if no time at all elapsed, ending with the softest smiles on our faces. Just terrific.

    Thanks, Vishen, for sooooooooo much you continue to offer all of us.
