Compassion

"Compassion is a divine attribute. It’s the only feeling, which is able to melt the heart away. It is very intense. When a heart melts out of abundance of love, compassion flows out. These are the strong surges of emotions, which arise in our heart. And this conforms perfectly to the Divine nature.
God has only been giving out, all the time, never expecting anything in return. He is an infinite reservoir of benevolence and compassion.."

Have you had a kindness shown? Pass it on; ‘Twas not given for thee alone.... Let it travel down the years, Let it wipe another’s tears, Till in Heaven the deed appears, Pass it on... (Henry Burton)

  1. Surjit,
    I think that kindness, emapthy and compassion are qualities that set humans apart from animals. We are able to put the needs of others ahead of our own, to ease their pain and provide them with security, love and nuture.

  2. I agree with your words of wisdom Martha Mihaly:
    '...I think that kindness, emapthy and compassion are qualities that set humans apart from animals..'
    But most of us don't put this universal truth into practice..
    Thanks for sharing.
    Good luck.

  3. LOVE this post!

    This post makes me feel calm and peaceful. It'd be great if everybody becomes God's channel of compassion. May I remember this every day...that I am His channel of compassion and kindness. A ripple in the Big Ocean of life.

  5. When we pour out compassion and kindness on those around us, joy beyond all measure comes to take it's place.

  6. AsI have said surjit, your post queches the thirst of people who are in the dry land of life. It reflects a deep picture of you.

    "Splagchnizestai," is the Greek word for compassion. "copyright"-ed
    by Jesus? It seems it is exclusively His in the Gospel. It means being moved to the guts.

    I love your beautiful post. We have to take the violence of the world into ourselves and heal it within our selves, through our suffering, through our dying, through the gift of ourselves. May He give you more years to enjoy this giving. God Bless you and your family.

  9. Hi Surjit,

    The bible tells us to have compassion in 1 Peter 3:8-9 "Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous; (9) not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing.

    According to Seneca, "Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness."

    Thanks for this good post!
    My Best Wishes to you.
    Let's Acquire Wisdom and Live with Passion

  11. Surjit, It always comes back to us when we give of ourselves - and most especially when we truly expect nothing in return.

    When we've been given a gift of compassion and love I feel it's our duty to pass it along to our fellow travellers on this earth.

    Peace, beauty and love to you today.
