Message from Henry: Kindness

Wisdom asks: how can we live better?

Zen is ethical. Like all schools of Buddhism.

The karmic problem it addresses is that while humans can be extraordinarily kind and altruistic, we can also be spectacularly selfish and cruel.

It’s a wisdom tradition. Wisdom asks: how can we live better? What would it mean to live well? What would it be, to make the most of this human opportunity, wherein we can even ask that question?

And kindness seems to rise to the top of the list — by itself.
