Compassion is a verb.
…..Thich Nhat Hanh
Love and compassion appear as selfless service. Yet in love we do not serve the other, we serve “us.”
Love’s communion brings us together in a whole. Compassion does not see the world’s pain and sorrow as other – it is shared, it is ours.
When we allow our shared vulnerability and humanness, love and compassion are as natural as our breath, and without hesitation we act to help.
