On: Caring

Deep and radical caring. What does that mean?

Does it mean you have to help every friend move?
Does it mean you have to go to every party, even if 3 are on the same night?
Does it mean that you have to feed every single hungry person in the world?

Deep and radical caring means that inside of yourself, you agree that every other person’s well-being is as important as your own. It does not mean you are responsible for the happiness of others. It means you acknowledge, deeply and radically, that they are as important as you are, everyone!

When everyone’s needs are as important, choices and decisions are arrived at easily with much less, if any, friction.
