Compassion embraces the world

See on Scoop.itBullying & Shame to Empathy & Compassion

An experience at a conference on compassion leads this writer to consider the extent to which our thoughts can benefit those around us.

Even more than a desire to relieve the suffering of others, compassion is born of an innate recognition that we are all embraced in a universal and unconditional love. Although all too often this recognition lies buried beneath the stress of circumstance, this doesn’t mean it’s beyond our capacity to discover, uncover, and benefit from.

All it takes is a willingness to listen and the humility to respond.
