157: Five Ways to Demonstrate Compassion


There is sadness in the world, and we should never try to disavow it.  Those times when your fellow man or woman is in despair are the moments when you can show compassion.  Feel the pain of another and help them back to their smile.  It is one of the  surest ways to grow beyond abject humanness, to experience your higher self.

Quote of the Day
