We need more compassion in our world and in our lives. When we hurt along with others who are hurting, we are connected to them through their suffering. This connection is a pathway for love.
We are able to grow more compassionate by getting outside of ourselves and suffering alongside those who suffer. It’s this ability to imagine what could comfort another that allows us to love our neighbor as we love ourselves.
Compassion is the catalyst for empathy. Empathy is the catalyst for knowing how to best love others as we ourselves would want to be loved. It is how we are able to imagine another’s needs and how to best give them love.
Compassion converts empathy into acts of love and kindness. Love in action heals broken hearts and broken people… and in time a broken World.
To bring more love into our world and into our lives we need to cultivate more compassion. Compassion is one of love’s most important ingredients!
