I asked Higgins to help me vision a Kindness Paradigm. In part one they said, “From our perspective then, a Kindness Paradigm for life on Earth is one in which each of you commit words and actions from kindness, kindness being defined as arising from the understanding that what affects one affects another thus nurturing a desire to create harmony through positive word and action.”
This is the continuing conversation.
A kindness paradigm: word and action committed with intention to create harmony.
Consider construction. We specifically speak of roads, homes and shopping areas. If what affects one affects another and all action is committed towards producing harmony your roads would have side areas for walking or biking (or even for horses as a means of transportation and recreation). These side areas would even host wildlife. Homes would be built conscientiously with regard to local weather patterns, the lie of the land it sits on, proximity to neighbors and livability. Shopping areas would be beautiful as well as functional. Instead, what we see primarily is roads built for cars rather than people and homes and shopping areas built inexpensively rather than humanly.
While we understand the economic system that has developed we also understand that life is not about a dollar. Life is about self-expression and enjoyment. A kindness paradigm would fertilize positive expressive expansion of the individual and a world made up of happy, joyful individuals would be a nice place indeed.
Questioner: So a kindness paradigm is about enjoying life?
Higgins: Not exactly. A Kindness Paradigm offers a format for societal structure that nurtures the individual…every individual. Every individual, properly nurtured, will grow to be something positive.
Think of a flower garden. Regardless of the species of plant chosen it needs space to thrive, temperatures neither too hot nor too cold, too wet nor too dry, neither shall it be too windy. Given proper nutrition and attention each plant within a garden grows to be a lush representation of whatever it is and whatever it is adds to the loveliness of the overall picture and the garden as a whole is less for each plant that fails to thrive.
A Kindness Paradigm for life would offer each individual the nurturing required to thrive. Right now, we see most of you simply existing within a framework that is ill fitting (your current paradigm) and chafes the human spirit the same way an ill fitting shoe chafes the foot.
Questioner: Thank you, Higgins.
