Compassion is an important aspect of loving that evolves as a result of feeling loved. To have compassion means to deeply understand and feel tendernes for others based on who they are, as distinct from what they can do for us. It is a very sacred capacity and one that defines our humanity. It is imperative that, as a species, we find our way back to the compassionate state that will guide us in balancing the “light” and “dark” elements of our character.
