Humans have a natural capacity for compassion. However, everyday stress, social pressures and life experiences can make it difficult to fully express this capacity. Each of us can choose to nurture and grow the compassion instinct, like a plant that is carefully cultivated from a seed. This process requires patience, steady care, proper tools, and a supportive environment.
Compassion is a process that unfolds in response to suffering. It begins with the recognition of suffering, which gives rise to thoughts and feelings of empathy and concern. This, in turn, motivates action to relieve that suffering.

Compassion Cultivation is . . .
I would like my life to be a statement of love and compassion and where it isn't that's where my work lies.
Caring about others, running the risk of feeling,
and leaving an impact on people, brings happiness.
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten
that we belong to each other.
This is a moment of suffering. Suffering is part of life.
Let me be kind to myself in this moment.
Let me give myself the compassion I need.
Between stimulus and response there is a space.
In that space is our power to choose our response.
In our response lies our growth and our freedom.
No act of kindness,
no matter how small is ever wasted.
You have not lived today until you have done something
for someone who can never repay you.
The thing about meditation is:
You become more and more you.
