The Composition of Compassion

The composition of compassion is made up of the desire to suffer with or for another.

Very few will accept such a challenge The foundation of true compassion lies in a willingness to suffer with the ones that suffer.

Often people will say ‘But I do feel for someone or something’ yet this is only a surface feeling that retreats as soon as it is spoken.

In surface compassion you might think that you must do something about the suffering and it feels real, yet I say that true compassion first comes from the point of feeling pain and willingness to spend a few moments in deep love for that which you see.

Yes, go ahead and help if you can do something incredible to fix it.

If you are unable to help, know that your moment of willingness has moved mountains.
