‘I read a quote in a comment about compassion this week:
A woman had traveled to India to interview the Dalai Lama. While with the Dalai Lama, on the street she witnessed a man viciously beating a dog. When she asked the Dalai Lama about it, he said “Compassion means being sorry for the man as well as the dog.”
It has been sitting in my heart and it has been calling to me to rethink compassion and service and healing. What is my purpose? What do I do everyday that contributes to the world? This video sums up how I try to see the world. To open our eyes and step out of “self help” and see the world as connected…if it is all just me me me…what is the point?
