Loving-kindness means to love kindness
The term expresses exactly what it ascribes,
It is being a lover of kindness, tender mercies, too,
Mercies so tender that judgment finds no triumph
Pain, nor sadness are matches for kindness,
It is a careful endeavor which combats carelessness
Gentle and tender are the efforts towards its success,
Soft strides, and steps forward, with whispers of silence,
Do I love receiving loving kindness? Yes, I do,
How about you?
Do I love giving loving kindness? Yes, I do,
How about you?
With every fiber of my being, I love kindness
Especially to give a kindness, in giving resides
a peace and joy only the kindness can explain,
Isn't that the place forgiveness lives, in loving kindness
Giving kindness when an offense utters something other,
It is when you are that repeat offender that kindness speaks
in a different spectrum, and the colors of virtuous love shine brightest
Loving-kindness is an inner beauty needing a forum,
Just as the sun needs the sky
External woes can never stifle kindness, because,
there is no cloud that the sun cannot shine through
Loving-kindness reflected, resonates excellence, and abates fear,
Fear propels torment not faith
Interwoven threads of virtues are on display,
What a fragile and delicate state of being and becoming
a loving kind soul which rises to the call of loving
the gift of kindness and its expression.
Dana Tate from LOS ANGELES on July 14, 2018:
Loving kindness. In this day of social media just "being kind" seems very hard for most to do.
