Being Kind

Kindness in words creates confidence.  Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.  Kindness in giving creates love.    ~ Lao Tzu   ~

Being kind gives love to those around us, and then people want to be around us even more.  One of the most common responses to kindness is gratitude.  People appreciate what we’ve done for them and how kind we’ve been.  Our kindness is very attractive, so they want to be around us and actually seek us out.  This creates kindness in both ourselves and others. The Buddha lists this as one of the eleven impacts of loving kindness, but he put it even more strongly, saying: “Loving kindness will make people love you.”
