Compassion: I don’t think that there is another world as important in marking a person’s inner growth. No other word completely conveys what this single word conveys.
Come behold this world, which is like unto an ornamented royal chariot, wherein fools flounder, but for the wise there in no attachment.
Can the world exist without one to cognise it? Which comes first the being-consciousness or the rising-consciousness? The former is always there and eternal; the latter rises and disappears. It is transient.
The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts.
If you want to leave the world better than you found it, then use your heart of compassion and your life of concern.
