I often show this short clip when teaching on Compassion or Compassionate Presence. I firmly believe that it allows us, in less than two minutes, experience the power of this Compassionate Presence which has more power than some high-powered medications.
If Compassion could be dispensed like a medication, would it be an illegal substance?
Would it come with a prescription?
Could you be inoculated with it?
Could it be used for an intended, overdose?
Would it come in pill form, or injection? Would it be an analgesic cream or a thick syrupy elixir?
Would it have a shelf life or a definitive expiration date?
Could it be purchased over the counter or just with a Prescription Card–$20 Co-pay?
Would it be Generic?
The questions are most likely endless and maybe the proposed answers have a magical infinity about them as well, but make no mistake about it: COMPASSION HEALS.
When a cure can’t be found or paid for, the healing that compassion brings is limitless.
Sympathy says, “I’m Sorry,”
Compassion yells, “How can I help?
And then. . .and then IT Does.
The whole world seems to be running the other way. But we, each of us, with a Compassionate Heart and Presence can provide what the world can’t begin to promise or literally, imagine.
Get your Compassion ON!
Share it Abundantly. . .Unceasingly.
Let the Healing begin. . .and Never End!
