     Excellent poem.  Thanks for the opportunity to respond.  Loving everyone and everything is it but I often forget it.  When I forget being kind to everyone and everything I am critical and delusional. In  a group I meet with weekly, I often try to correct one of the members who thinks that if he had one more idea or one more category of thought, he would then be certain and fulfilled.  I frequently states he is wrong for thinking that he will get an idea that explains all ideas. When I do that, I do not love him or myself.  As Gandhi said: If you want to make someone happy, be compassionate.  If you want to be happy, be compassionate."  Warm and kind regards to everyone.
