The 3rd facet to the tenet of Present is kindness and openness. Kindness and openness are the bedrock of being present.
You've got to try a little kindness
Yes, show a little kindness
Just shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness
Then you'll overlook the blindness
Of narrow-minded people on the narrow-minded streets - Glen Campbell
Does this sound naïve? Trite? Let’s look at the concept of kindness today.

Topics discussed in this episode:
Kindness / Openness:
- Emotions: I will feel what is happening NOW. I don't run from my feelings. They tell me things I need to know.
- Non-judgement: Every human is created in the Image of God, worthy of kindness, grace, respect and saving.
- Poor/Disenfranchised: I open my heart and hands to those in need. I have enough to share.
Ask yourself :
- What are YOUR heart attitudes regarding kindness and openness?
- What emotions does it stir up?
- Where is judgement showing up for you?
