...what it means to be human.
You don't have to practice kindness; you are kindness.
You don't have to practice compassion; you are compassion.
You don't have to practice empathy; you are empathy.
You are love, and kindness, compassion, and empathy are natural expressions of it.
So long as you don't constipate your consciousness with limited identities of who you are not, all that's left is love.
The question is: Can you BE who you are?
"Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within." James Baldwin
