    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...

    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...

    The Reasons Why.

    I Will Always, Always Offer a Shoulder to Cry On

    I think compassion is a trait that is overlooked in society today. If more of us realized that we are all human, all in need of love and acceptance as a general rule of humanity, I think this world would be a much better place. So for anyone out there - if you are...

    An Admirable Trait

    I guess I have always been compassionate. I somehow knew what others felt, and I just responded to it. There are basic needs that all of us have, in order to survive. For me, being compassionate is just another basic need that I have. When...

    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.

    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."
