‘When we act with kindness, we do something incremental to our character – we shape ourselves slightly further into a person who understands how to act with kindness, is inclined to do so, and does so with increasing ease. We etch that way of behaving just a little more firmly into our character, into who we are.’ (The Six Perfections)
I had to check to see whether I had already posted this (the word ‘incremental’ apparently has not yet appeared on this blog). This is because I was certainly quoting from it in my talks in England, and it feels like a credo of mine at the moment.
And, as a footnote, this marks 1500 posts on this blog, in a little over four years. Here’s to the next 1500. Thank you for your support!
