IS KINDNESS OVERRATED? – guest blog post by Beverly Tiernan

on 26/04/2015

As many of you already know, I have invited guests to my blog to discuss the question of whether kindness is overrated in this day and age. Several authors have already shared their views, more to come. The posts are either essays, poems, quotes or even stories. Author and educator Beverly Tiernan has sent me this interesting quote and picture. Her opinion on the matter is stated below the quote. Read more about Beverly below her post.

Acts of Kindness

The Buddha once said “When one becomes enlightened, two things flower simultaneously–kindness and wisdom. If you are a seeker of knowledge, I must talk to you through my wisdom. If you are a seeker of being, I will talk to you through my kindness. Wisdom can miss the target, but loving kindness can never miss.”

Kindness cannot be overrated.

About Lexa

Recently moved back to my home town, Bondi. After our mum passed away, I published a book I wrote for her ninetieth birthday four years previously. I had to write one for dad - even though he passed away several years previously - it's never too late to tell someone you love them. Now touring the globe visiting the towns of our ancestors....Just when we thought our journey was finished.....
