To paraphrase the director and screenwriter Richard Curtis: If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that kindness actually is all around.
This morning, I listened to my teacher’s Dharma talk about “this human world,” invoking compassion and love within.￼ Also, he spoke of embracing the goodness in all humans, within our compassionate heart. His talk today reminded me of Naomi Shihab Nye’s poem “Kindness.”￼ Just google this exceptional poem - you may be very moved by it￼￼￼!
Excellent column, Cathleen. We can all do better being present and showing others kindness.
