What Really Makes Us Stupid

Here’s the paragraph I underlined for tonight’s KM Book Group discussion:

“Sometimes people think that if we have too much lovingkindness, always focusing on the good in others, it will make us stupid in some way, that we’ll no longer see the truth of what is going on or be able to take appropriate action. But it is precisely the mind not cloud by anger or hatred that allows us to see situations clearly and to chart the right course of action, even in very difficult situations.”

(from Mindfulness: A Practical Guide to Awakening, by Joseph Goldstein.)
