How Love Wins focuses on ‘us’ rather than ‘me’ because both anger and kindness involve a recipient, making it ‘us harm” for anger and ”us help” for kindness. Another aspect of us-help is that it is very difficult to maintain your kindful practices all by yourself. You are more likely to ‘stick with’ your kindful practices if you can periodically discuss your successes and failures with someone. Even better if you have an individual or group who is also intentionally changing their lives by replacing anger with kindness. This might be tied to religious practice or part of a kindful book club. Are there ways you can create an ‘us help’ situation to support your change process?
