Compassion for warm-heartedness

One of my favorite teachers is the Dalai Lama. He is authentic and conveys his message with simplicity and humor that warms up your heart. His openness and his embrace of science is another aspect that I admire about him. And he calls for a new path to that which is divine: being compassionate to all living beings including ourselves.

Here is a short clip on Compassion and warm heartedness from the Dalai Lama.

Intention for Today: Compassion

I set the intention for Compassion to fill our lives.

The word compassion from Latin means "to suffer with" from com meaning "with" and pati meaning "to suffer". When we feel an emotional connection to the experience of another or with a certain state of things we are expressing compassion. When something stirs your heart in the deepest way and creates not just a desire to help, rather a strong determination to actually take action to relieve another, it is compassion we feel. This action may simply be being fully present for the other to ease the burden of their pain.

May we feel compassion for one another. May we feel compassion for our Mother Earth. May we feel compassion for ourselves.

Thank you for Compassion in our lives.
