The Essence of Compassion

Ultimately, compassion represents a shift from me-centered to we-centered thinking, and the realization that loving others is loving yourself.  My teacher, Sri Swami Satchidananda, beautifully articulates this essential truth when he says, “Real love is possible only when you see everything as your own expression.  All others are none other than you; they just appear to be different.  We always need to go beyond the name and form.  When we rise above the worldly limitations, we will find that the essence is the same.”
