Refuge: Compassion

Posted on April 30, 2009


Compassion has no limit.
Kindness has no enemy.

Mindfulness, concentration & insight.

What does my refuge of compassion look like, feel like, sound like inside and outside of me?

What about when I speak to Nanay and my voice raises? Where is my compassion to myself and another at that moment?

How about when I am listening to her? How quickly does judgment take the place of deep listening?

And with my students? What does compassion look like in the classroom? I am learning how “discipline” and “structure” are forms of compassionate action, but what a fine, fine balance that is.

Compassion. Kindness. Limitless. Refuge.
