Compassion Keeps Pace

Compassion doesn’t equal guilt. Feeling sorry for someone who’s experiencing difficulty serves no one.  Unless that is, it helps you think you’re in a superior position. (side-eye)   So if not guilt, then what?

Well, remember, the root word of compassion is Pass.

From Lexico – Latin:  com – together; passus -pace or step.

So, wouldn’t it make sense that compassion means

TOGETHER  STEP

OR

LEAVE NO ONE BEHIND

But to feel compassion requires us to do some spiritual heavy lifting.

First, you got to feel comfortable with the idea that everything that breathes is equal.

Wait. What?

So once you can wrap your mind around that, compassion means living together as one  or “perishing together as fools.”
