Compassion is about learning to become tender with our hearts.
And it's about the sacred possibilities that come forth when we make friends with our hearts and learn to spend more time there.
What if something greater were possible than what we see, believe, think...
We all have challenging moments living on this planet, and we carry difficult memories of growing up here.
What if our connecting with the Divine inside of us and outside of us created options we could never imagine.
That is the land of compassion. It's an opening in our hearts, a warmth that grows. It fills us up like an overflowing cup and expands out toward everything.
We learn to have compassion for ourselves, compassion for other humans, compassion for the human experience, compassion for all creatures in existence.
This softening of the heart makes it possible for our true inner lights to shine, for guidance to arise, for us to connect more with the Divine.
We are each one of us a unique manifestation of the Divine, trying to remember who we are. Everything we need and more exists as a treasure inside of us. There is nothing we need to add. It is patiently waiting for us to discover its abundance.
Every time we are kind toward that small part inside us and really listen to what it needs, we access more of our Divine essence and have a chance to share it with the world.
