Positive Possibilities Reminder – August 29, 2016 at 09:39AM

BY Parvati

As we evolve spiritually, we cannot help but feel moved by the suffering we see in the world. An impulse to help alleviate pain is a natural reflection of our inherent humanity. Sitting on our meditation cushion often gives rise to a greater sense of how connected we are, and as such, that our compassionate actions can serve the world. Through compassion, we rest in our underlying sense of oneness. We are humbly no better than or worse than others, but feel connected to all through love. We must remember, however, that compassion is a sophisticated state of being. As the Buddhists say, its ‘near enemy’ is pity, which is very different than compassion. When we feel pity, we are positioning ourselves as separate from another, usually somehow above them. In compassion, we rest in the understanding of our inherent oneness.
From the foundation of understanding, through the practice of witnessing, the flower of compassion arises.
