I have come to know that compassion is something we can always have more of. Over the past few years, I have realized that just as I become aware of my compassion, it seems to want to grow, thus more space in my heart. As I look back at various moments in my life, I am awestruck to know that they didn’t deplete me, even though it felt like that at times. Rather, I was expanded by those moments. Compassion is also for me as it is for the other. It makes me think of a vessel that overflows, which refills simultaneously with more. I feel renewed by this gentle continuous flow. Although I have read much about compassion over the years, but to be experiencing it with absolute knowing is something words alone cannot express. I feel I must…
I must sing, I must dance
I must listen, I must thank
I must play, I must forgive
I must love, I must live
I must receive, I must give
I must laugh, I must cry
I must bow down, I must rise high
I must, I must……..
Because I am here now and alive.
