Loving-kindness = Self-care

“Loving-kindness is a deep knowing that every individual’s life is inextricably interwoven with all life and that, because of that connection, we need to take care of one another – not out of sloppy sentimentality or a sense of obligation, but out of wisdom that recognizes that when we care for others, we are really caring for ourselves. Loving-kindness isn’t just an abstract ideal; it’s a hands-on, practical path to realizing a transformed life.”
