Cultivate A Kind Heart

It’s easy to be judgmental. Simply pay attention to your thoughts and you’ll see how often you’re critical (and downright unkind) to yourself and others. It’s not pretty to witness, but awareness is always the first step. What’s delightful is when you readily see the best in yourself and others. You do this by cultivating an attitude of generosity, gratitude and appreciation. This is how you learn to keep your heart open and bring out the best in us all.

  • Become aware of your critical thoughts
  • Positively redirect them immediately
  • Pay attention to how good it feels
“I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.”–Mother Teresa
