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.
“Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it.”
~ Helen Keller
