Kindness

Just finished Dan Millman's Sacred Journey of the Peaceful Warrior, and I especially enjoyed this little tidbit from the end:
"If a tiny sprout could reveal this to me, would the sky someday reveal its own secrets? And what could the stones tell me, or the trees whisper? Would I learn the way of the flowing stream, the ancient widsom of the mountains? That was still to be disccovered."

"What did it all add up to? I remembered a story about Aldous Huxley. In his later years, a friend once asked him, 'Professor Huxley, after all your spiritual studies and practice, what have you learned?'"

"With a twinkle in his eye, Aldous answered, 'Perhaps... to be a little kinder.'"
