Cool Quote of the Day

Compassion has nothing to do with achievement at all. It is spacious and very generous. When a person develops real compassion, he is uncertain whether he is being generous to others or to himself because compassion is environmental generosity, without direction, without “for me,” and without “for them.” It is filled with joy in the sense of trust, in the sense that joy contains tremendous wealth, richness. We could say that compassion is the ultimate attitude of wealth: an anti-poverty attitude, a war on want. It contains all sort of heroic, juicy, positive, visionary, expansive qualities. And it implies a larger scale thinking, a freer and more expansive way of relating to yourself and the world.
