Love. Compassion. Kindness. Each a concept until the moment one experiences their beauty and meaning while pondering their very own existence.
A message from my Spirit Teacher, Tau Chuan Ling.
Today’s message from Tau Chuan Ling reveals something I have thought about but never understood.
I’ve spent most of my life working to love others. I’ve worked to be compassionate with the plight of others and even gone as far as to try to imagine walking in their shoes. As for kindness, this is my least practiced virtue when it comes to others. Now to realize that I’ve only been able to practice these virtues from a conceptual understanding humbles me beyond measure.
- What is love?
- What is compassion?
- What is kindness?
In considering each with respect to myself, I am clueless. Utterly clueless.
What I am struggling with is the premise of what the hell have I been doing in my life. I have loved; of that I’m certain. Or am I? The same goes for compassion and kindness.
I have some work to do. No wonder I’m still here this lifetime!
