I would interpret it as when you make choices kindness and empathy are causal factors that effect your descisions more so than say profit or power, for the reason that they are more important in your reasoning you might have to go back quite a few more steps and it will be a whole myriad of causes that caused empathy and kindness to have big effects in your life.
