Tara Brach on compassion
- "Just as a bright sun causes ice cubes to melt, in the moments when
we feel connected and kind, we create a warm environment that
encourages others around us to relax and open up. Each time we widen
the circle of caring - with a smile, a hug, a listening presence, a
prayer - the ripples flow out endlessly. When we offer comfort to the
person sitting by our side, our kindness spreads through the world.
Whether offered inwardly or to others, the bodhisattva's compassion
is a gentle rain that touches, without bias, all of life."
