The 44: The Power of Kindness

I hope you’re enjoying the program so far. You might be wondering why compassion or loving kindness training is so important … let’s talk about that today.

What’s so important about loving kindness? Well, compare loving kindness with how we normally go through life:

As you can see, every time we act with compassion and loving kindness, things improve. When we act with harshness or by running away, we make things worse.

This is the power of kindness and compassion. They help us to deal with the frustrations and anxieties of life in a more loving way, and in doing so, they connect us to others, they improve our relationships with ourselves and with others, and they make us happier.

That’s worth practicing.
