When we practice the virtue of gentleness we get in touch with caring for ourselves and others. It is essential to care for ourselves. If we are dried up like raisins we have nothing to offer. Taking the time to rejuvenate and tenderly care for our needs leads to inner peace and a natural desire to contribute to life.
Don Miguel Ruiz writes, "If I don't feel good emotionally, I find out what is causing it and fix it. Then I can recover my happiness and keep going with my story."
