Practice a Compassionate Life!

“Feel the pain of others. Understand their strengths and disappointments their hardships and inadequacies and open your heart to them. Realize that everyone is doing the best they possibly can. Judge no one. But rather, cradle all humanity in your heart.”

My Friends,

One of the most important things I have practiced in my life is Compassion. Compassion for every person I meet, from a street person begging for money to a wealthy person who lacks happiness. My philosophy is that everyone is doing the best they can with what they have.

It is our responsibility as spiritual, positive beings to practice Compassion for everyone. Understand that like you and I everyone has a different story, not everyone deals with things the same way and not everyone has an open heart and that we must not make assumptions based on race, sexuality, religion or whatever difference one might have but embrace our differences for we are more alike then you may believe.

We need to be examples, we need to be the person to, as Ghandi once said “Be the change we want to see in the world”

So today when you see that person begging for money give them a dollar, tell them they are beautiful. When you see that wealthy person getting out of their fancy new car with a grumpy look on their face, say hello and tell them they look wonderful and watch their eyes sparkle with appreciation.

We must never make assumptions and always be compassionate because as my mother use to say “never judge a person till you’ve walked a mile in their shoes”

You are amazing, keep shining!

Just now I was thinking the same. I was realizing that I'm self-centred and an beautiful exercise is to make an effort to SEE, really see and Love someone that I find. All people have a life, have a feelings...All person is important...and now I'm realizing that day after day I use to meet people and do not empatize necessarily with them. Some are only human beings that coincide with me at work, in the street, on my path to my house.. and I don't see nobody, I am thinking all time on myself. Only change the point of attention from myself to the others, and with an feeling of love associated. This seem to me a good exercise.

Beautifully put! You are in line for 4th density (or dimension) by the looks of things for that is what is part of ascending to that point. It involves being positive and compassionate to find our way to each other. Thank you for such a positive thought to fill my mind and soul....*fD0fFpWne6l7aaiwNQ6arvpn*0VBb-tS3op*M8c4kj0Sdv7PFo8XU2XM2kGNRpa8FRe9xbt1O/HiddenHand20081227.PDF

Thanks Shayne,
I believe that Compassion is like the song says “What the world need now is love sweet love. That’s the only thing that there’s just too little of”. Weather it’s between Palestinians and Israelis, Republicans and Democrats, Pro-choice and Anti Abortion, or me and my neighbor. I’m learning that like anything it takes practice, and for me a little structured support. And that’s what I wanted to add to what you’ve said. I get mine at a place called Spirit Rock once a week with a meditation and a talk every Monday night where the Buddhist teachings are so focused on Compassion. I know people going to church on Sunday or a Mosque or some place near them where they can go on a regular basis can get it too. Thanks for spreading the word,

Great topic. Shayne I like to pass on compassion by doing an act of kindness daily or when the opportunity arises.. If appropriate, I ask the individual that when they have an opportunity would they kindly pass it on.
