17 – Wonderful Things Are Taking Place

Seek modesty in your acts of kindness,
your deeds supporting others as if by accident,
when it is simply nature running its course.

Kind actions involving ego still help.
False acts of kindness contain hidden bargains,
from which benefactors feel diminished.

Trust to be trusted, kind-hearted to be kind.
It’s as if nothing is happening,
yet wonderful things are taking place.
