compassion

A Quote by Meredith Young-Sowers on love, god, compassion, understanding, and peace

I would like to comment on the God fiber within each living thing. This essence, this fiber of love and grace, runs in every vein, no matter how deeply buried. Each person has a God fiber, whatever their actions or hurt they have caused you or others.

A Quote by John Pierrakos on love, compassion, spirituality, defensiveness, defendedness, and protection

Spirituality, a defended person has no room for love or compassion—he is too busy defending himself.

A Quote by Rachel Naomi Remen on healing, suffering, goodness, capacity, forgiveness, grace, wisdom, wounds, compassion, and expertise

The healing of our present woundedness may lie in recognizing and reclaiming the capacity we have to heal each other, the enormous power in the simplest of human relationships: the strength of a touch, the blessing of forgiveness, the grace of someone else taking you just as you are and finding in you an unsuspected goodness. Everyone alive has suffered. It is the wisdom gained from our wounds and from our own experiences of suffering that makes us able to heal. Becoming expert has turned out to be less important than remembering and trusting the wholeness in myself and everyone else. Expertise cures, but wounded people can best be healed by other wounded people. Only other wounded people can understand what is needed, for the healing of suffering is compassion, not expertise.

A Quote by unknown on compassion, doubt, fear, hidden gifts, and wisdom

Make me strong in spirit,
Courageous in action,
Gentle of heart,

Let me act in wisdom,
Conquer my fear and doubt,
Discover my own hidden gifts,

Meet others with compassion,
Be a source of healing energies,
And face each day with hope and joy.

A Quote by Earon on compassion, power, meaning, life, happiness, questions, and human nature

Compassion vs. Power.
In life, beginning in infancy, we seek compassion.  Yet, we see power all around us, so we are curious.  We are offered compassion, but suspect that power is better.  So, when power is offered or available for taking, we often forget that compassion is the answer to our question.  Power is not an answer, but an endless question.

Compassion is the answer to our question.  Power is not an answer, but the begging of the question.

If you're going to care about the fall of the sparrow you can't pick and choose who's going to be the sparrow. It's everybody.
