When is the last time you did something truly compassionate? I have to admit its been a while for me. Too long really – an act of total giving with no expection of acknowledgement, thanks, gratitude, just because it was the right thing to do. I see too often the opposite, people making excuses for why they deserve, why they shouldn’t have to give or care – and these aren’t bad people, they are Christian, or religious of some kind. They’ve just forgotten that what they have isn’t nearly as important as what they can give – and what it does for the soul to give.

I’m completely inspired by Karen Armstrong’s Charter for Compassion. And I can’t even watch the video without crying 🙂 Check it out for yourself, and join the cause if you feel moved.
