I love the website Unsplash. It is a photography website and it is from there that I often find the photos I use on my blog. One day a week or two ago I searched the photo database for “compassion” and all the photos that came up were photos of compasses. At first I was like “wtf?” but then I realized the search algorithm was taking the root word “compass” from the longer word “compassion” that I had use. And it got me thinking.
When we look for direction in like (a compass) we can find it by finding compassion. What direction leads us toward more authentic caring in this life? When I was younger I thought I needed to be so strong that I could make it. As I have gotten older I discovered that vulnerability is a source of strength, not weakness. It is better to care than to not care, definitely.
The Dalai Lama says: “Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.” That is the direction the compass is pointing. If you are asking “where do we go from here?” The answer is toward a more compassionate life.
