COMPASSION, the ability to feel another’s pain or sorrow, transcends the ego and accesses the spiritual faculty of love. It is a feeling that connects us and encourages us to focus on our oneness rather than our separation. COMPASSION is a miraculous ability as it defies the instinct for survival of the self and recognizes the significance of the well-being of the whole. In spite of separate bodies, lives, destinies, perspectives and all of the things that reinforce our individuality, COMPASSION reminds us that we are inseparable, one collective consciousness in the mind and heart of God.
