Compassion-origin – to suffer, to suffer with

I dare to say that compassion is not an act, something that you must do to someone else to make their life less painful, less suffering.

But maybe, compassion is an experience that presents itself to you, through others so that you might see more of who you are, what is hidden within, illusions and perceptions calling to be recognized.

An opportunity to go deeper, to take off blinders, to let go of judgements, to transcend, and to awaken.

An opportunity to recognize that as you suffer, I Am suffering and together as we transcend the illusions of what I perceive and what you perceive we take a step closer to truth, our connection to All.

“Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion.” Buddha
