Compassion and Family


Compassion. We all need it.

Compassion is a kind of heart powered magic that we each have inside. It keeps us strong.

To have a healthy world and healthy family,  notice hunger - your own and that of others. Everywhere there is hunger for compassion, humor and faith. We are a global family.
People in our family are hungry for food, basic education and personal freedom.

How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these. ~George Washington Carver 

Compassion makes us champions of the world. As I write this, I'm nibbling on delicious chocolate from Alter Eco. This company is founded on the concept of compassion through global family that includes the family of rainforests and families of farmers they work with. This is all of us.

Global warming reminds of when we get a fever. If we ignore it, and it just gets worse, it means we're sick. It's possible that our planet is not just warming, it's potentially dying. We are its family. To survive, we have to be compassionate. There are many ways to work together to heal the planet. Choose one and participate. You will feel the connection in your heart. You might get a dose of amazement.

Compassion teaches us how to thrive with change. Be a champion of our world.
