    Right At The Heart

    To me this is something that the world is desperate for. It's too easy to isolate ourselves, to make our world just about ourself, but when we do that, well, at least in my experience, the world becomes the most miserable place. What good is life without purpose? Feel free to...

    This is how what someone else said about compassion, and I like it: "Compassion could be thought of as seeing the boundary between you and other things dissolved--that you are all integral to the universe and so, linked."

    It's Part of Me

    I think I do have some compassion within me. I know for a fact that I am passionate, but I'm sure I have at least a little compassion too. :-) I value it in others, so much! A compassionate person is someone I'd like to hang around, all the time! Heehee! I think they...

    Mistakes

    I want to share this story, because I can't tell if I am being compassionate or having a lack there of.  My friend had a surgery a year ago.  It was nothing major and I went with her so that she wouldn't have to drive.  She is very paranoid about being exploited by...

    A Way Not Only To Help, But To Live

    Compassion acknowledges the deepest meaning we all have. To be kind to others reminds us that we were once newborn, helpless, and in need.

    To pity those who most people pity is not

    compassion so much as it is conformity, but to pity those who others despise or hate is true compassion.
