Do you have compassion in your life, ? Compassion is something that you should carry with you at all times, it should be part of you, a life without the ability to feel compassion would be like having no blood running through your veins, however, some people have lots of compassion and others have very little, compassion can be said to be like “don’t do to others what you would not do to yourself” we see suffering all around us, on different levels depending on where we are and the level we are at, far to many to mention here, this is a topic that could take thousands of pages, but if we look at compassion in our everyday life and everyday situations, do we have or show enough? are you a good friend or family member,community involved,a good neighbour and fellow citizen, we must not mistake compassion and that of a listener, compassion will give that extra push to help, be involved, get into action regarding the situation, if we just listen and then even maybe criticize to others, maybe you need the compassion of others, life is a funny thing and we never know when the tables turn, doing a good deed and offering that helping hand, can only bring that back to you,don’t confuse this with, “i have to do this to get something back or out of this, this is not compassion, this does not come from the heart, from your inner self, it is interested motivation ! You are simply doing something for personal gain. Good brings good, when it is heartfelt genuine compassion for a fellow human source of life, this will bring true compassion in your life from others,we all need compassion, we are not beyond this, no matter who we are, to give and receive kindness, love, a helping hand when needed is an emotion of fulfilment and personal achievement, you do not need to know the person you feel compassion for, it can be a perfect stranger who, by your compassion, could change their whole day or even their existence, so as you go through your day, feel the compassion in your inner self and act, not only does the receiver gain but you also, enjoy your compassionate journey.
