“Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love.” – the Buddha
At last night’s meditation session, we contemplated cause and effect, aka karma. We considered that when we react with anger and fear, we plant seeds of anger and fear. But when we give ourselves the space to react with patience, kindness and compassion, we plant seeds for patience, kindness and compassion.
Legendary UK producer John Lloyd (QI, Blackadder and Spitting Image), turns his curiosity to knowledge itself, and questions whether intelligence is really all it’s cracked up to be.
“Kindness is an absolute. To be kind is good, full stop. Always, in any circumstance, kindness is better than anything…If you do what you know to be right, it’s extraordinarily powerful.”
