That is not true. There have been moments I have regretted being kind. I remember some of them. That kind of pain in the realization later released me from something holding me against the presence of clarity, as a place across from Power. These two, Clarity and Power, co-exist, or fly away from each other. What directs them is Will. What is needed in spiritual quests is balance, not striving towards a utopia, or fulfilling a glib statement stating, "You will never regret being kind."
Development is a spiritual quest linked with what the intellect and emotions need to live in a body aware of where one is in relationship to all Life. . . - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 12/31/17
