Gift of Compassion

Compassion has become
one of my most intimate teachers

Compassion, like forgiveness
is not about the other person
it is a gift to my self
the gift of maintaining
an open heart
by withdrawing
my own judgment
with the realization
that I do not appreciate
other’s interference
with my own life choices
therefore I have no right
to judge others

With compassion
I live with an open heart
no longer triggered
by anger from another
no longer provoked with
the need to defend my self
no longer attempting
to improve another person
no longer prompted
to change humanity

With compassion
I become a sovereign being
able to honor each person
on their own sacred journey
in their own sovereignty

Herein lies my true Freedom
because a closed heart
lacking compassion
limits my ability
to live a full
and fruitful life

Compassion has become
Who I Am and how I live my life
thus, my life has become
so much more enjoyable.

Take a deep breathe and
give your self
the Gift of Compassion.
