A Simple Gift: Compassion
Finding the word compass in compassion means you know you are headed in the right direction. 🙂
Both self-compassion and compassion for others require that we simply put forth our ideas and requests and then let them unfold naturally without any attachment to the outcome or direction it may send us.
This can be applied to everyone’s journey: from parenting to corporate work, building a home to homeschooling, creating art to creating a family meal.
If we are able to be in P.L.A.Y. mode more often and simply be present with what is we are more likely to engage from a place of compassion and this will make all the difference in the journey which is the sum of our life experiences.
Joseph Campbell, known for his Hero’s Journey work, summed it up well in this quote from An Open Life –
“It has something to do with submitting rather than dominating. Surrender, submit. Have faith, trust in the mystery. That’s not easy. Surrendering one’s life to living in, and serving, the beauty of a mysterious world is a big step. . .The purpose of the journeyis compassion.”
