It only takes one person to disrupt a cycle of caring. A relationship of any type, work or personal, is a delicate thing. One bad partner or supervisor can start a cascade of negativity in any relationship or organization. When someone doesn't feel cared for, they often stop caring.
On the other hand, just as one person can disrupt a cycle of caring, the opposite is true. Enthusiastic caring is contagious.
It takes a lot of strength to care when no one else does or appears to, but the alternative is reprehensible.
Zen Presence - Ideas for Meaningful Living
p.s. - Who cares? I do. Like Chade-Meng Tan and Daniel Goleman, authors of Search Inside Yourself Increase Productivity, Creativity and Happiness , I believe that mindfulness is the answer to happiness and potentially world peace. That is why my wife and I are starting a meditation center in our new hometown of Frisco, Colorado.
