That Which Unites.
I was thinking this morning about the necessity of our interactions. Specifically, the predication of compassion upon empathy – and the need to encourage the graces of equanimity and justice.
And, leading us much further still – along this path where ego is still.
We may find ourselves frightened at the hands of an uncertain fate; uncertain of a trust that has not yet been ‘earned.’
And yet, still – we know. The energy of life forges our passage through.
Rossi Joan Halifax writes;
“We live in a time, when science is validating what humans have known throughout the ages: that compassion is not a luxury; it is a necessity for our well-being, resilience, and survival.”
To that end, how might we effect its unimpeded continuance – to encourage the roots often left unattended?
Through action, yes – but so much more. As it is only through the heart that our legacy may prosper.
In peace, my loves…
My darlings, just a quick note – on Saturday, May 20, 2017 I will be speaking at a National Event in Washington D.C. The event is to help soldiers impacted by deadly toxic exposures; I shall be there advocating on their behalf (Operation Stand Together). For those who’d like the opportunity to meet, by all means – I encourage you to attend.
