Rev Jeanne Phillips “Keys to Compassion”

The givingness of life is the foundation of the Universe, and the essence of the individual life. We are hardwired in the brain to care and connect with each other. Yet we often fall into the habit of the busy and unexamined life, avoiding feeling the pain another person is going through. Because this would mean we would have to be present to our own feelings.
We must be authentic with our own experiences, to feel the truth of our own lives, before we can be present for another. And being present can be enough. We don't have to have the right words, or take specific action. Just being fully present for another can be enough to change the world.
