Plato once said, Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle. This, I believe, is at the heart of kindness--identifying with the most common of bonds that humanity shares--life as struggle. Seventeenth century scientist and theologian Emmanuel Swedenborg describes kindness this way:
Kindness is an inner desire that makes us want to do good things even if we do not get anything in return. It is the joy of our life to do them. When we do good things from this inner desire, there is kindness in everything we think, say, want and do.As a fruit of the Spirit, kindness is powerful in its simplicity and even the smallest attempt to focus on it can't help but be transformative. To that end, my goal for 2015 is to reflect on and practice kindness more intentionally.
