“Kindness is the highest form of prayer for it reflects the inner longing for universal love.” ― Debasish Mridha
Kindness opens our souls to greater and greater Truth. We need not struggle with kindness and yet we do; though we lose nothing of ourselves and gain so very much. We do not need to reach higher levels of consciousness or ascend to greater union Spirit before we can offer kindness to the world. We confuse kindness with forgiveness. Kindness is not dependent upon forgiveness. Kindness is not a feeling at all. It is a decision to open our hearts to all there is. We are kind because the world needs us to be so. We are kind to the stranger, kind to our friends, and kind to the earth when we offer respect and share our yearning to be whole. Universal Love shared without differentiation is the supreme yearning of the Universe for all of humankind, animalkind, and all the expressions of nature. Namaste
