Suffering comes from wanting things to be different from what they are and from our struggling to try to change them.This understanding can allow us to naturally feel compassion for others.This compassion is not based on pity, mercy or charity. It comes because we know through our own experience, that we are all doing the same thing…struggling with our experience because we want things to be different from what they are. Allow this compassion to break open your heart…see and know the pain of the world. Face the tragedy of the human condition and know it does not have to be this way.Allow this compassion to not be a feeling but an awareness of your open heart. This open heart awareness will allow states of freedom, clarity and peace to be expressed in life.
