Written for: Carpe Diem Theme Week 1, episode 5, Book of The Living and Dying–Insight 4-The power of compassion is limitless
How to be compassionate? You can gain that through loving kindness. Look at the other as you would look at yourself. We are all the same notwithstanding spiritual or religious differences. We have all the same feelings and desires. If you were in the position of facing death, what would you like to do, what would you want that others would do for you?
Compassion is only compassion, real compassion, if you do something. Just be there, be present … can be enough.
