Kind friends

I have been observing the kind. As in, people being kind to people.

Here’s what I’m seeing.

  •  Somehow they are ultra-interconnected with others yet totally of themselves at the same time.
  • They are not attacking, obviously, but even more importantly, they are not defensive.

This means they are open.

But they’re not open to attack, if you know what I mean.  They are not exactly undefended.

It’s as if they know that no one can hurt them. Or that anyone can — probably everyone will — and they’ll be okay.

It looks so easy when they do it. Maybe it is.

What do you think — what characterizes them? How do they do it?

    This makes me wonder about the place we may go within when we challenged in some way whether it is thoughts or a visceral-physiological response to something. Sometimes I can go to a place in my mind where everything is suspended and nothing permeates this altered state other than pure awareness.
