Compassion is so often touted as a spiritual quality and something that is innate to naturally kind and upstanding people. But what if compassion is something much simpler … and actually more about paying attention to the people and the world around us?
We miss so much about people when we don’t pay attention. We miss other people’s lives, stories, joys and sorrows. Something really powerful happens when we give each other our presence, we recognise it as a kind of magic. And this is the opening to true compassion.
