How much attention, mindfulness and intentionality is needed to produce a soft kind sound with a mallet striking a singing bowl!
Making a loud sound doesn't require any of these qualities. You strike hard -- and here it is.
So in life, a kind action requires immense amount of intentionality, attention and mindfulness. Because you cannot force kindness, you cannot force love or a smile.
Force will create a sound, which might even sound similar on the surface, but it is not at all -- it lacks paramitas qualities, it lacks kindness.
Am I forcing things in life? Am I striking too hard?
