More about kindness

I am both moved and impressed by the comprehensiveness of this:

More than anything else, kindness is a way of life. It is a way of living and walking through life. It is a way of dealing with all that is--our selves, our bodies, our dreams and goals, our neighbors, our competitors, our enemies, our air, our earth, our animals, our space, our time, and our very consciousness. Do we treat all creation with kindness? Isn't all creation holy and divine?

-- Jean Maalouf

  1. Jean will be thrilled that you quoted him again Ellie. He was quite flattered and humbled last time. I will see him for prayer this Thursday.

  2. Oh my, Andie! I had forgotten this person was a friend of yours. And now I can't remember where I found this particular quote. But I think it is really wonderful. Please tell Jean I said so.
