When you regarded me
Your eyes imprinted your grace in me,
In this, you loved me again,
And thus my eyes merited
To also love what you see in me.
Let us go forth together to see ourselves in Your beauty.
~St. John of the Cross

The more awareness and the more sensitivity, the more need for balance with equanimity and understanding- even saying to yourself, “Oh, this is just the way it is” may help. The Buddha says compassion is a quivering of the heart which, when it’s not balanced with equanimity, is quite painful. When compassion is not balanced with wisdom it is very painful- and for me, I get out of balance. That can be quite difficult and as a result I feel very alone sometimes. ~Noah Levine
