IS KINDNESS OVERRATED? – guest blog post by Beverly Tiernan
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.
B. J. Tiernan
