    As I read and reread the passage, I am struck by the similarity between what I experience as an overwhelming sense of gratitude and this poetic experiential definition of kindness.  Both are expressed with an open heart.  Both give us pause to remember that right action transcends time.  Both can be exercised as a profoundly positive extension of our deeply personal 'story'.  Both are extraordinary expressions of the deepest truth we can know...that everything is love.
