boundless compassion…

it seems to me that compassion recognizes the foundational truth of our interdependence. compassion bears witness to the underlying strength and profound courage within open-heartedness and vulnerability. compassion is born out of authenticity, empathy and the inspired motivation to put lovingkindness into action.this is why i believe that compassion cannot be defeated. in the long arc, compassion’s steady, untiring persistence and fierce tenacity will win out.
