Spirit of Compassion


Whenever we look deeply into our behavior, we begin to recognize that many of our interactions with each other are unconsciously based on protecting our self-image, trying to control the ever-changing world around us or win the acceptance of others.  We can practice having compassion for the ways that we all suffer from our attempts to arrange for happiness, reminding ourselves of the innate goodness within, like the light beneath a lampshade.  We can also acknowledge the ways we may have hurt others when we’ve been preoccupied with our own safety and desires, and in this spirit of compassion, forgive ourselves for these mistakes.
