That is the hardest virtue for me to practice… let alone master.
So I have been watching kind people in movies, and I am reading Benjamin Franklin’s autobiography.
I am noting the discrepancy between the behavior I observe and the behavior I would have in the same situation.
It is so far out of my realm of possibility to be calm, allowing, and kind, maybe to even shut up, that it looks hopeless.
But like with everything, there is a threshold… a moment when something now invisible will show up and suddenly the whole business of change will become easy.
