There’s much distress, conflict, distrust, anger, and fear, in America. And yet, there have been many examples of selflessness, heroism, courage, love and compassion during the pandemic. Same country. My prescription for the former is the root of the later. Kindness. Some might say that kindness is Pollyanna, naivete or even weakness. I disagree.
Simple kindness to one’s self and all that lives is the most powerful transformational force of all. Kindness produces no backlash, has no downside, and never leads to loss or despair. Kindness increase’s one’s own true power without exacting any toll. But to reach maximum power, such kindness can permit no exceptions, nor can it be practiced with the expectation of some selfish reward. And its effect is as far reaching as it is subtle.
