In today's session, Sharon Salzberg, a leading spiritual teacher, who’s a pioneer in bringing Eastern meditation practices to the West, will differentiate between kindness as “sweetness” and how it can be used as a spiritual force in daily life and in our practices—especially with those who have hurt us.

    I think there is an important difference -- kindness seems more like an action, whereas sweetness is an authentic feeling. Sometimes I do a kind act while not feeling sweet at all, but more trying to act rightly in spite of some conflicting feelings, like making a higher/wiser self choice. Sweetness feels authentic true and true, and seems to come from a spiritual place, an empathetic connection which, in very sensitive situations has a power and healing force that an action with conflicted feelings does not.
