And, these three questions seem to be pretty simple, straight-forward tests that move me to be more in line with what I believe God might ask of me.
Is it true? Is it necessary? Is it kind?
There is debate, imagine that!, in the origin of these. But whether they come to us from certain poets, Christians, Buddhists, other religions or philosophers, they seem to call us to a reckoning towards our higher selves, and to a spirit of kindness. So much so that I wonder that in simply asking,
“Is it kind?”
I might better know the answers to all of the other questions. And the answers that best suit my soul.
