post a weekend retreat at a Dharma Centre set deep in the splendid wild.
Among the teachings was Compassion.
Compassion is an action.
Loving kindness is a feeling.
We develop compassion with skill and means.
How could I ever imagine being compassionate with anyone before I learned the skill and found the means of being compassionate with myself?
Continuing to observe myself with no judgement.
Welcoming the stirrings of compassion sprouting within.
Understanding myself better.
I remember — Awareness, Compassion, Wisdom, Strength, Abundance, Joy! Humour — oh yes! I remember Humour!
Om Mani Padme Hum
Things are opening up!
