COMPASSION

COMPASSION

“As we train the heart, we move from understanding that pain is a given, to learning to tolerate pain and beginning to meet it with mercy. The next step is compassion. Our greatest salvation will come when we uncover compassion, when we learn to meet pain with love rather than hatred. The word that the Buddha used for compassion was karuna. It translates as ‘a movement in the heart, in response to pain.’ Compassion is very simply the experience of caring about pain and suffering – ours and others.'”
-Noah Levine

Mindfulness Practice for the Day: Today, take the next step. Turn toward the pain and use compassion.

Lack of communication is unhealthy.
