Monday Reflection: Compassion, Sorrow, and Kindness

Compassion is the heart’s response to sorrow.
We share in the beauty of life and in the ocean of tears.
The sorrow of life is part of each of our hearts
and part of what connects us with each other.
It brings with it tenderness, mercy,
and an all-embracing kindness that can touch every being.

-Jack Kornfield

Monday Reflection

To think of the immense wall of potential hidden deep within our being,
to understand that the nature of mind is fundamental purity and kindness,
and to mediate on its luminosity, will enable you to develop self-confidence and courage

-H.H. The Dalai Lama

Monday Reflection

The true essence of humankind is kindness.
There are other qualities which come from education or knowledge,
but it is essential,
if one wishes to be a genuine human being
and impart satisfying meaning to one’s existence,
to have a good heart.

-H.H. The Dalai Lama
