Compassion – A Life Changer
Copyright © by Veronica Hay
 Compassion    A Life Changer

I have been thinking a lot lately about the word “compassion” and how there does not seem to be a lot of it around these days. Judgement is much more prevalent. I think because sometimes when we judge another, it makes us feel temporarily better, like we are smarter or more superior in some way. But judgement never soothes the wounded heart or opens the tender soul the way compassion does. It closes them down, affects our health and the quality of our life. Perhaps many other well intentioned people feel that by being compassionate to others they are allowing or even encouraging them to show weakness, and not be strong enough to rise above life’s challenges. Nothing could be further from the truth.

I am not talking about sympathy or pity as these certainly do not empower anyone. Most people don’t want or need pity, but they certainly do require “love”. We all require love. As I have said many times before, it is quite frankly all that matters in the end. What I am talking about here is the simple joy of human kindness and caring. I am talking about sensitivity, warmth, tenderness, and big heartedness.

And so, I implore you to ask yourself where and with whom you could be more “compassionate today? Where could you reach out, surprise someone who is going through a very difficult time and let them know, that while you may never be able to truly understand or even relate to what they may be going through, your heart goes out to their suffering and turmoil? Please resist the need to fix them or offer any advice that they have not asked you for. Just ensure them that you are holding them in deep compassion, bright light and tender love. And that you are seeing them emerging victorious, however that may look like for them. Remember that sometimes a kind word to someone on their journey can and may even save a life. So, please don’t hold back.

And the person to start with today with this process is YOURSELF! Offer true kindness and compassion to yourself for all you have gone through to get you to where you are now, in this moment, no matter what that may have been.

And so, I would like to take this opportunity to send my deep love and heartfelt compassion out to every single soul who visits this blog. Your strength and courage has served to uplift all of us and moved us forward. I acknowledge each and every one of you individually for coming this far. I treasure your presence here and I salute you. I wish you Godspeed on your journey, my dear and precious friends.

Love and blessings, Veronica

“A meal, however simple, is a moment of intersection. It is at once the most basic, the most fundamental, of our life’s activities, maintaining the life of our bodies. Shared with others, it can be an occasion of joy and communion, uniting people deeply.” ~ Elise Boulding

When I read this quote today, it made me think back on all of the meals I have shared with others. The memories of some of the really special ones will always be with me. Thanksgiving, comes to mind, as well as Christmas turkey dinners, but the ones that are the most memorable, are the simple ones. The ones that were spontaneous, the ones outside in Read the rest of this entry »

My Wish For You Today … Copyright 2003 by Veronica M. Hay

That you really SMILE at someone today, as though they were your long lost lover come home again to steal your heart.

That you TASTE everything in your life today, the food, the wine, the rain drops, the snow flakes, each other, with your eyes closed, and your senses fully open.

That you PLAY today, with all the innocence and abandon of a sweet child, unaware of anything else, but this precious moment.

My Wish For You Today …  by Veronica M. Hay

That you WALK today, with a firm step, and a confident stride, as if you are really going somewhere, because you are.

That you PRETEND you are rich and witty and wise, whatever it is you are wanting to be, act as if, pretend it now.

That you FORGIVE everyone who has ever hurt you, and you understand the deeper purpose of all your pain.

My Wish For You Today … Copyright 2003 by Veronica M. Hay

That you SAVOR the little things in your day today, your first cup of coffee, snuggling with your puppy, your baby’s sighs, your loved ones embrace.

That you SMELL one magnificent flower, so close and so intensely, that your nose rejoices to be a part of such an extraordinary face.

That you SEE, really see, your own soul reflected in someone else’s eyes, and you don’t run away, even though you’d like to.

My Wish For You Today …  by Veronica M. Hay

That you take some time to close your eyes and IMAGINE and DREAM, so big and so deep, that you become like the caterpillar, who emerges as the butterfly.
 

That you LAUGH today, harder than you have ever laughed before, so hard, that your sides ache, and tears stream down your beautiful, glistening face.
 

That you LEARN something new today, something so utterly amazing, that it shakes you up, and rocks your world.
