kindness

No act of kindness
Can ever be superfluous.

– Sri Chinmoy

~

Kindness is not blindness.
Kindness is oneness-awareness.
Blindness is failure:
Failure within, failure without.

– Sri Chinmoy

Yesterday I discovered kindness in myself.    Today I see how beautiful and soulful I am.
Yesterday I discovered kindness in humanity.   Today I see how meaningful and fruitful humanity is.

– Sri Chinmoy

~

The awakened mind
May show kindness
To those who not only do not deserve it
But also misuse it-alas!

My Lord tells me
That my mind’s cleverness-smile
Will never be a match
For my heart’s kindness-smile.

You can show your sweetest kindness
Even to those
Who are vehemently standing
In your way.
But under no circumstances
Must you surrender to their way.

– Sri Chinmoy

~

Follow not
Your blindness-mind;
Follow only
Your kindness-heart!

– Sri Chinmoy

~

Like kindness, a smile from the heart not only purifies the human mind but also illumines the human heart.

– Sri Chinmoy

~

Simplicity, kindness
And forgiveness-
These three are
The most powerful branches
Of the life-tree of Christianity.

– Sri Chinmoy
