Many people spend their time serving others in every locality in the land. Others make their profession in healthcare. Others are teachers or educators. Some do it for their church. They live in a spirit of grace. Their spirit inspires them to be compassionate towards others.
Evan Harrel (cofounder of the Center for Compassionate leadership) explained to me that compassion “is awareness of suffering and the aspiration to relieve it.” Harrel, and Laura Berland, founder, believe compassion is more than just sympathy. It requires action. “Compassionate leadership involves bringing compassion to those you lead” to “create cultures where compassion is an essential ingredient that helps alleviate suffering.”
Mother Theresa once said that “if we don’t have peace,” it was because we forget that we are one another. We can strengthen our bonds by showing compassion. It is not enough to say it. It is tough to be with those who profit from our divisions. Therefore, compassion has its limits. Your efforts should be directed at making a positive impact. Your ability to listen to others opens up your heart, leading you to understand.
Berland and Harrell both say that compassion has the benefit of transformation. Today’s world is undergoing a significant upheaval due to the pandemic. People are starting to rethink who they are and what they would like to do with the rest of their lives. It is possible to change the way you think about the world by acting compassionately one person at a time.
