Kindness is a light touch

that makes the Other feel better,

and reminds you

the Other isn't much different than yourself.

words

describing the emotions of happy and joy and often mentioned with happiness

 

Hi zerostao,

 

Are there words to describe kindness? I think not.

 

Why? Kindness is beyond words.

 

Kindness is more into feelings as in emotions ~ beyond words too.

 

If emotions are not into words and so is kindness, what's it?

 

It is alive as a void in the Tao... like emptiness.

 

What in hell/heaven do I mean?

 

How many 0's are there in zerostao?

A taoillion thanks for starting this thread.

I have also noticed that when we are in a state of vulnerability (as long as we aren't totally overcome with fear) we can plumb the depths of compassion and concern for others.

 

 We can/will/shall care for one another and others...?

But when we are dealing with difficult emotions like anger or anxiety, it becomes harder to tap into the wondrous well of Kindness, such is my experience

 

... such is my experience too.

 

But in the end Kindness can/will/shall prevail...?

Observing children, one could think that kindness is inherent in humans.

 

Actually, it's quite the opposite :lol:

No, in general kindness and altruistic intention are absent in children...

 

Thank you for responding to ~ 'Yes/no?'

 

Can I add - 'I do not know' - when it comes to this photo...?

The photo was taken at Detroit Montessori School during afternoon story time.

 

"The  photographer had taken hundreds of shots but didn’t feel he had gotten a great one yet... When he silently prayed for something special that he could capture, this little girl laid her head on her friend’s lap. He nonchalantly laid his arm around her. This photo became the full back page of The Detroit News. "

 

It was captioned...

That's how propaganda works!

 

 

The pictorial  propaganda propagation of...

Milk of Human Kindness

Less effective in the days of black and white...

Now more effective in colorful gif...

Present day kind of propaganda propagation.
