Asked to meditation on compassion, I find this hard to do. 1-24-12
To focus my energy and thoughts on an emotion I find hard to distinguish.
Why does this bring me such difficulty?
Why do I not know an emotion that seems universal.
When was the last time I put myself in someone elses shes truly?
I do not even try to
Unempathetic, I am, as I ride off feelings others speak of as undesirable, while I go on with the thankful thought that I myself do not have to experience that pain and suffering that they speak about.
Has my fortune allowed me to totally disconnect myself from the world?
Why don’t I feel the universal emotion of compassion?
COMPASSION- why do things that make us feel good get taken away? what is something that brought you joy that was taken away from you? Why do we have to suffer?
When I think of suffering, I think of the strength that is built up from it. Does that have to do with my optimistic approach? Instead of feeling how bad it hurts I think of how strong the person becomes from going through the specific suffering. Maybe that’s why my skin’s tough. Strength arrises from trials and tribulations. One grows. One becomes.
