I wrote this a year ago and wanted to share again.

The other day I wrote about being nice and how that could change the world. I think if you’ve tried it, or have been doing it all your life you realize that being “truly” nice can only be accomplished with compassion. True compassion recognizes that all the boundaries we perceive between ourselves and others are an illusion.

When I’m being compassionate, I feel and experience the ability to see the deep connectedness between myself and others. I recognize that all the obstacles and boundaries I perceive between myself and others are an illusion. When I first began to practice compassion, this very deep level of understanding may have eluded me, but with practice I was eventually able to feel my way toward it.  And, as with any skill, our compassion grows most in the presence of difficulty.
