How To Become a Compassionate Being

Do you often judge quickly people around you? Do you often come up with strong words for yourself ? Do you often beat yourself up thinking that you are not doing enough? Do you often compare yourself to others?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, congratulations today is the first day of the rest of a compassionate life.

Compassion is making the radical shift to assume the best in others and in yourself.

What would the world be if we were easily listening and understanding the emotional state of another person without using the filter of our own life? If we were always willing to reduce the suffering of another person and have a totally different perspective when it comes to how we perceive others, we would create a more loving life for ourselves and others, a more conscious kind and caring world.

Think of someone you know who is suffering now. Remember a moment that made you feel sad in the past or made you suffer like this person. Find similarities in the experience. What can you do to reduce his suffering? Believe in your power to do good to this person, to bring back lightness in this person’s life. And then when you find that action that will help that person, notice how good compassion feels in your heart.

Take into your heart the wise words of the following poem:

My beloved child, break your heart no longer.

Each time you judge yourself, you break your own heart.

You stop feeding on the love which is the wellspring of your vitality.

The time has come.

Your time.

To celebrate.

And to see the goodness that you are.

You, my child, are divine.

You are pure.

You are sublimely free.

Let no one, no thing, no idea or ideal obstruct you.

If one comes, even in the name of ‘Truth’, forgive it for its unknowing.

Do not fight.

Let go.

You are God in disguise and you are always perfectly safe.

Do not fight the dark. Just turn on the light.

Let go and breathe into the goodness that you are.”

~ Swami Kripalvanandaji (Bapuji)

Now let’s repeat 3 times in your mind today’s affirmation : ‘I assume the best for myself and others,I assume the best for myself and others, I assume the best for myself and others’,

May Peace grow as Seeds in our Heart.

The HeartWorkers.
