"Live with compassion. Work with compassion. Die with compassion. Meditate with compassion. Enjoy with compassion. When problems come, experience them with compassion." (Lama Zopa Rinpoche)
Being compassionate sounds very beautiful, but how do we actually develop compassion? What can we do to open our hearts to be kind and compassionate towards all sentient beings? The key is to intimately know and understand our own mind. Instead of looking outward and blaming external conditions for how we feel, think and act, we turn our eye inward. Mindfulness meditation and practice helps us to see things as they really are.
With this growing insight and clarity, the awareness of our profound interconnectedness with others automatically increases. This is the path to develop an open, loving heart and increased peace and happiness in our daily lives. Through the practice of mindfulness and reflective meditations we will deepen our attentive awareness and expand our compassionate approach to relationships with others, ourselves and life in general.
