Fierce Compassion: Compassion does not imply ducking our responsibilities or shirking our power. | Compassion & Love | Scoop.it

Compassion does not imply ducking our responsibilities or shirking our power. Instead, it is a potent tool for transformation since it requires us to step outside of our conditioned response patterns.

 

I've spent quite a bit of my life as a meditation teacher and writer commending the strengths of love and compassion. So many times people have approached me and said something along the lines of, "I don't know about developing greater love and compassion. Surely that will consign me to only saying 'yes'/ refusing to take a stand/ letting other people be treated unjustly/ being a wimp."
