Compassion is the Easier Path

September 1, 2011

Click here to listen to today’s Daily Power Prayer for Self-Compassion!:

Along this holy path that my life is, I learned that there was no hatred, no hurt, no anger, and no fear that I had that couldn’t be met and healed by love. That became my foundation. It became the blanket in which I wrapped myself. I became more interested in my healing than I was in anything else.

The key, for me, was self-compassion. Compassion is love for those who have temporarily lost touch with their Divine nature – and that was me. Now, I can see that when I live compassionately I am a healing presence wherever I go and I KNOW it. I feel it. In our society we’re taught that it’s not easy to have compassion, but I am here to tell you that it is much easier to have compassion than it is to be filled with resentment. I know because I’ve hated those who were angry and cruel to me. I’ve hated myself for not doing better. I’ve worked with it.

I used to think it was my responsibility to take offense and hold onto resentment. I really believed that was a worthwhile activity. I believed that it would somehow make the world a better place. I had lost my mind. I was lost, but now I am found. Phew!

All that I am interested in is Love. Period. End of story! Revelation of Truth!
