Creating a feeling

I was doing an intentional model and wanted to work on being kind. I described kindness in terms of actions and then when I went to the feeling I wasn’t sure if kindness was what would create those actions but when I pictured myself BEING kind those actions are what came up. Can kindness be in the action line? If you want to show kindness, it comes up in the action line, but does the feeling of kindness produce that? Getting caught up here.
