walk through to heartspace

Compassion is not at all weak. It is the strength that arises out of seeing the true nature of suffering in the world. Compassion allows us to bear witness to that suffering, whether it is in ourselves or others, without fear; it allows us to name injustice without hesitation, and to act strongly, with all the skill at our disposal. To develop this mind state of compassion, the second of the Brahma Viharas, is to learn to live, as the Buddha put it, with sympathy for all living beings, without exception.

how I choose to be…..

inquiry for today~ wondering how and why and is there love here….

many days and nights

We can learn to see each other and see ourselves in each other

and recognize that human beings are more alike than we are unalike.

~Maya Angelou
