Kindness can guide your life’s work and give meaning to your life.
All else will melt away if you let go of it and leave only kindness.
When you are uncaring or indifferent to others, you also create an empty, blank feeling in yourself, a void that cannot be filled with gadgets, social networking, shopping, food, or possessions.
When instead you are kind, you build a good feeling within yourself, you make yourself happy. In effect, you are being kind to yourself.
Other outward-facing actions have a similar inward effect: if you want to learn, teach.
If you need inspiration, inspire others. If you’re sad, cheer someone up.
You must be mindful of every interaction with another human being.
Approach each person mindfully, with your full attention, smiling, seeking to understand them, trying to interact with gentleness, warmth, compassion.
By treating others with kindness, you will create a happy feeling within yourself, effectively creating a positive feedback loop for your mindfulness.
This will encourage you to be more mindful throughout your day, which will help you to treat others with yet more kindness, and so on.
