I came to realize that my feelings of anger and outrage were the plea for help from one who was drowning in fear. Love was my answer. I learned that there was no hatred, no hurt, no anger, and no fear that I felt that couldn’t be met and healed by Love.
Compassion is loving understanding for those who have temporarily lost touch with their Divine nature. When I live compassionately then 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.
Living compassionately requires a deep commitment. Every day, I’m discovering the answer to the question “How do I BE the peace I’d like to see in the world?” Over and over again, the answer comes when I am offered the opportunity to prove my commitment to peace by choosing compassion. Initially it was very challenging. There are still times when I have to be with myself for a moment before I can trade compassion for judgments, but that is more and more rare and I’m grateful.
It’s a daily practice and a daily healing. Every day I’m grateful I can clear out more that doesn’t serve me and strengthen my healing.
