Kindness as an illness


"The idea of kindness as an illness with all its attendant concepts of infection and contagion is highly creative. This manner of expression is a brilliant example of how Tantra turns language on its head. It uses violent rage to describe clarity, and sickness to describe health. Sometimes you have to spread the illness of kindness in the guise of desperado and sometimes in the guise of 'thom yor."
