Bottom radical is one of the radical forms of 'heart/feelings' (心). Top radical is derived from a pictograph of a 'spinning weight', used her phonetically to express 'give'. A heart which gives is a kind heart. Henshall suggests taking the top radical as 'ten' (十) and 'field' (田), and as a mnemonic: 'Kind hearted person blessed with ten fields.'
