I am, on many levels, learning compassion and non-attachment in new ways. Many of my dreams over the past few weeks have been revolving around loss, which is prominent in my life right now, as is new beginnings. I am trying to sit with all of these lessons, whatever they may bring, and stay focused and happy. It is not always easy, and as I reach out to community, it feels that often they miss the point. So, back to focusing on compassion. Mainly compassion for myself.....
Compassion is not a relationship
between the healer and the wounded.
It’s a relationship between equals.
Only when we know our own darkness well
can we be present with the darkness of others.
Compassion becomes real
when we recognize our shared humanity.
