I learned that it is the weak who are cruel, and that gentleness is to be expected only from the strong.

A Quote by jack Kornfield on wisdom, compassion, spirituality, practice, and now

How to make our lives an embodiment of wisdom and compassion is the greatest challenge spiritual seekers face. The truths we have come to understand need to find their visible expression in our lives. Our every thought, word, or action holds the possibility of being a living expression of clarity and love. It is not enough to be a possessor of wisdom. To believe ourselves to be custodians of truth is to become its opposite, is a direct path to becoming stale, self-righteous, or rigid. Ideas and memories do not hold liberating or healing power. There is no such state as enlightened retirement, where we can live on the bounty of past attainments. Wisdom is alive only as long as it is lived, understanding is liberating only as long as it is applied. A bulging portfolio of spiritual experiences matters little if it does not have the power to sustain us through the inevitable moments of grief, loss, and change. Knowledge and achievements matter little if we do not yet know how to touch the heart of another and be touched.

A Quote by Marianne on marianne, cleveland, sharing, banquet, native american, homeless, hunger, kindness, compassion, love, peace, community, enough, without, children, and need

Imagine being invited to a banquet where you bring your own meal-
and you brought a steak ,baked potatoes and asparagus with Boston cream pie for desert.  

Joining you at that table were a sampling of the human diversity from your community.  
Across from you  at this table was a mother with children who had nothing to bring-
how much would you enjoy your meal without sharing it?

A Quote by Labadie Celeste on grace, gratitude, compassion, and divinity

This is how I find compassion
I stand between a tree and the sun
I remain until I can find the luminescence in aspen bark.
I continue because I seek the core of truth in every being.

This is how I find grace:
I surrender to water.
I surrender to the rock.
I obseve sensations on the surface of my skin.

This is how I practice gratitude:
I peel a tangerine.
I give away all it's quarter moon sections,
Allowing the fruit of  service to introduce me to strangers.

With open palms,
I walk into the fire of life.
The soul needs no shelter from the sun.
I remember that everything is a part of me.

In my world
I seek the divinity of all things.
Finding an eagle  feather on the corner of mystery,
I pick it up, holding it between my body and the sun.

A Quote by Baba Lokneath on love, compassion, help, and prayer

Whenever your are in danger, whether in war, forest,ocean or jungle, remember Me. I shall save you. You may not know me. You may not realize who I am. Just pray to me with a little touch of your heart, and I shall free you from gripping sorrows and miseries. I willingly reveal myself to you. Therefore, you are in a position to reach me, or else, it is impossible. No power on heaven or earth can damage the devotees who take shelter under me. For there is none greater than me to punish you. I can do whatever I like. It is only your lack of trust, your non-belief, that keeps your desires unfulfilled. For those who with love and devotion surrender to me, if they are in trouble, my heart melts. This is my compassion. And with my compassion, my power flows out to them, freeing them from miseries and unhappiness.

I am Eternal. I am Deathless. I AM.

Successful leaders lead with the heart, not just the head. They possess qualities like empathy, compassion and courage. They also have the ability to establish deep, long-term and genuine relationships where others trust them.

A Quote by unknown on god, spirit, source, consciousness, sacred, service, compassion, and love

"Regarding God/Spirit/Source, whatever one calles it, I feel I have all the answers. I just don't apply them as I should and that's where I work. I try to remain uninvolved in others' sacred space, but "live it through service, compassion and Love."
