    Hope you're all well & enjoying your time on this forum

    I found the word kindfulness at a recent site and it sounded like a good idea ...

    Here is one page you might enjoy -

    Kindest regards

    We’re heading into a kindness revival – which is no bad thing. It’s down to the ever-growing trend of mindfulness, but perhaps not in the way you’d think. The rise of being mindful (y’know, cultivating an awareness of your present surroundings, inner thoughts and emotions) has been proven time and time again to have a very real positive effect on your mental and physical health. And yet there’s a growing concern that practising the Buddhist tradition as a standalone concept, without the warmth, goodwill and generosity (read: kindness) that Buddhists practise alongside it, means that we’re not only missing the point, but also doing our mental health a disservice.

    “Mindfulness without kindness becomes dry, boring and cold,” says expert Shamash Alidina. “But when you switch the focus to ‘kindfulness’, it reminds you to be forgiving and friendly as you carry out mindfulness, so you’re able to get the very best out of it.”

    Sometimes the kind thing to do is smack them in the head with a pot, of course with the utmost warmth.

    Thanks for the video but you should know that violence solves nothing it just generates more negative karma to burn up ...

    I realise you meant well and it was probably a humorous response ... (to a deadly serious question)

    :)

    Well sometimes you have to deal with what you deal with.
    To be honest, IMO the the ideal is to extract oneself from karma altogether. Positive karma/negative karma, both are still a prison.
