Have we become so isolated from each other and the web of life that we have suppressed our natural ability to be kind to ourselves, our family, friends and community?

Let’s start a revolution of kindness, starting with the way we treat ourselves!

Let’s love our thoughts, perceived flaws, weaknesses and who we are, just as we are.

Let’s practice forgiveness towards others who have acted unkindly to us. A little too hard…a bit too soon?

What if, like the Dali Lama, we made kindness our religion? What kind of a world would we have, if we made simple acts of kindness our practice?

I hope you will join me integrating kindness into our daily practices.

With Kindness,

This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple, the philosophy is kindness. ~ The Dalai Lama

  1. What a timely post when the electoral climate in the USA is vicious and hurtful, worse than anything we’ve ever seen before!

    Yes! Let’s be kind! To ourselves and to each other!

    Peace, Tamara

  2. Lovely post. Yes, we have to start within… forgive and love ourselves. I’m hopeful that humanity will evolve with love and compassion in this way, although sometimes I fear it won’t be in my lifetime.
