EMBRACE
COMPASSION

Compassionate action involves working with ourselves as much as working with others
~Pema Chodron

Compassion

Sympathetic consciousness of others' distress, together with a desire to alleviate it


The Power of Compassion

Happy Spring everyone (well, almost spring). It's just a few days away. I hope the New Year has found you to be excited about your opportunities and equipped with a positive attitude and motivation to take action and prove successful.

Being realistic in regard to what I can achieve and do well has been one of my goals for 2011. In that regard, you may have noticed that while you received a newsletter in January, you did not in February. I've decided, for now at least, to write the newsletter every other month. It gives me more time to not only determine what topic to share with you, but more time to sit with and contemplate how to discuss it. I feel less harried, less stressed and more joyful and "positive". These are things I wish for all of you. Let's all move forward at a reasonable pace.

The topic of choice for this newsletter is Compassion and the amazing power it holds. As I've thought about it over the past several weeks, this very topic has made itself known to me a number of times. I signed on to the Internet and saw an article about compassion as one of the morning's offerings. A friend's blog commentary focused significantly on compassion. Two women in the grocery store were talking about what the world could use more of now is compassion. And I concur with that sentiment.

The dictionary's description of compassion is sympathetic consciousness of others' distress, together with a desire to alleviate it. For me, compassion is certainly resonating with someone else's challenges and wanting to do something to help them. Sometimes the situation can seem so overwhelming I wonder what one person can do. When I read, for example, how many people in this country - in this world - go hungry every day, I feel compassion. Or, when I see the statistics on illiteracy. Illiteracy = lack of education = equal lack of formidable survival skills. I can imagine what it might be like to go hungry or pick up a book and not be able to read it. How disconnected this would cause me to feel! Oh, the things many of us take for granted. But, one person can make a difference. When I'd get up early and volunteer at the food bank, I was helping a little. When I sent, with the help of friends, over 2,000 books to a community in need in Africa, I helped a little. We can show compassion. We can give of ourselves. We can make a difference.

Do you stop and feel compassion for others? If so, do you follow up with action? Every little bit does help, and yes, you - one person - can make a difference.

So, the next time you feel compassion and a desire to do something, put it into action. You may never know to what extent your input impacts another's life, but believe that it does. I've always liked the Mahatma Gandhe quote, "Be the change you want to see in the world." Let's collectively do that, shall we?

Quotes About Compassion

Compassion is sometimes the fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else's skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.
~Frederick Buechner (American Author.b.1926)

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
~Dalai Lama

Compassion will cure more sins than condemnation.
~Henry Ward Beecher (Liberal US Congregational minister, 1813-1887)

It is lack of love for ourselves that inhibits our compassion toward others. If we make friends with ourselves, then there is no obstacle to opening our hearts and minds to others.
~Author Unknown

Compassion is not religious business, it is human business, it is not luxury, it is essential for our own peace and mental stability, it is essential for human survival.
~Dalai Lama

Compassion is the desire that moves the individual self to widen the scope of its self-concern to embrace the whole of the universal self.
~Arnold Toynbee (English Economic Historian and social reformer, 1889-1975)
