Do you believe in a "Pay It Forward" attitude and have you seen the movie?
When you do something nice in a pay it forward state of mind do you truly not expect anything in return? Honestly isn't it next to impossible not to at least expect, (knowing) the sense of pleasure that is within us all, after giving unconditionally? Have you seen the movie and does it happen or just a dream and why?
I have seen it and I do think it is a good idea, the person that you do something for might be the end of the chain but it doesn't matter because you were a good person for what you did and that's what matters
I have seen the movie, yes...as Kevin Spacey, Haley Joel Osment and Helen Hunt are a terrific cast! I am sort of a movie buff but in regards to the moral standing of this question...I have ALWAYS been a 'Pay It Forward' person. There is nothing, and I do mean nothing more fulfilling than helping someone in their time of need. This is a gift that we should pass on to our children, a heirloom that should be shared throughout our lineage as human beings. It goes with the old proverb, "Do onto others as you would have them do onto you."
We 'teach' and 'mold' people on how to treat us. For example, if I were in the habit of allowing my husband to smack me around, I would be teaching him that that is okay simply by allowing it. Then my daughter would see this and grow up believing that is how women are treated and she will be innately drawn to men that beat her. Thankfully my husband is a good, caring, compassionate, strong, loving, passionate and forgiving man. He'd have to be to put up with my sh*t. But no, seriously...disrespect, prejudice, cruelty...they are all a vicious cycle that can only be stopped when everyone realizes that YOU teach people how to treat YOU.
When you do good things, good things happen to you. When you do bad things, bad things happen to you. Karma. Respect is earned, Love is unconditional and Joy is right at our fingertips.

We were in line at the grocery store and the lady in front of us in one of the motorized carts, had maybe $40. worth of groceries. Her card wouldn't go though and she said she thought it had money in it, maybe it would have by the next day. She had to put all the food back. We’re just...

Do you think that there's a meaning behind a dream?I vividly dreamed that I sold and gave away everything that I owned. Bought an old RV, and moved far away. What does this mean?

Why is it so difficult for people to keep a positive attitude in life?In "The Power of Your Subconscious Mind" by Joseph Murphy, he talks about the conscious mind controling the subconscious mind which is the part of us that makes things happen. Wouldn't we want to keep positive thoughts...
