Compassion is key to healing and resolving conflicts within ourselves, others & the world.  Learning, remembering, practicing & expressing Compassion & Appreciation are two major key ingredients to individual & World Transformation.

Take the time to have compassion & appreciation on yourself, others & your enemies.  Compassion and Appreciation are just dripping & oozing with absolutely super brilliant exponential potential for individual and planetary transformation.

I first came across this Compassion exercise when taking the Avatar course. Notice too that Compassion has passion in it!
I share it here with you.

Honesty with one’s self leads to compassion for others.

OBJECTIVE:  To increase the amount of compassion in the world.

EXPECTED RESULT:  A personal sense of peace.

INSTRUCTIONS:  This exercise can be done anywhere that people congregate (airports, malls, parks, beaches, etc).  It should be done on strangers, unobtrusively, from some distance.  Try to do all five steps on the same person.

Step 1 With attention on the person, repeat to yourself:
“Just like me, this person is seeking some happiness for his/her life”
Step 2 With attention on the person, repeat to yourself:
“Just like me, this person is trying to avoid suffering in his/her life.”
Step 3 With attention on the person, repeat to yourself:
“Just like me, this person has known sadness, loneliness and despair.”
Step 4 With attention on the person, repeat to yourself:
“Just like me, this person is seeking to fulfill his/her needs.”
Step 5 With attention on the person, repeat to yourself:
“Just like me, this person is learning about life.”

Love is an expression of the willingness to create space in which something is allowed to change.
