Compassion: The True North of Your Moral Compass


compass_mapThere are few words that evoke crystal clear clarity in visual terms like the image that is created in my head by the word “Compassion”.  I see with my mind and feel with my heart; the emotion of caring when I contemplate the meaning of compassion.  For me, compassion captures the essence of what we (including myself) are about.  Specifically, what we value, what we cherish and what we strive to achieve in the course of living our lives.

Throughout my life, I have been gifted with the ability to join and leverage my senses toCompassion_2 create imagery that has enabled me to generate incredible focus in all areas of my existence toward the Greater Good.  And subsequently, to be able to transform and apply that focus into actionable, observable and achievable outcomes and results.  I know its kind of like a logical and nerdy affliction, however, it is who I am.  To the point, I KNOW who I am.  By fully embracing that essence of my being, self awareness is very tangible, evident and easy to assimilate into reality.

So what exactly is compassion, you ask?  Indeed, it is a burning desire to create outcomes that help people, redeem their noble and innocently directed energy and create synergies to advance good in the world; while overcoming evil, hate, sinister behavior and malcontents.  It is the warmth of the support offered by friends and family; the protective shield against harm; the eternal guard against negativity and destruction.  It is optimism, humility, kindness and yielding.  It is constant, powerful and selfless duty.

“It is no coincidence that at the heart of the word compassion, lies compass.  And what is a compass?; if not a guiding light and beacon that directs us to, and identifies “the way” of goodness, kindness, civility and moral abundance.”

Compassion_4Each of us truly knows, deep down inside our hearts, what is Right, conversely, what is Wrong,  and what things prevent us from creating the reality of our compassion.  We must seek the quiet shores of our mortal oceans, listen to the voices manifested as the whispers of the wind in our minds and commit to adjusting our sails and rudders to point in the direction that our Moral Compass leads us to follow.  But it takes true courage, conviction and intent.  It requires purposeful thought accompanied by deliberate action.

Likewise, Personal Harmony occurs when our thoughts, intents and actions correlate and support our essence as human beings and gifted spirits.  When achieved, personal harmony in our lives reverberate outward as a surreal symphony of accord and fellowship.  This frequency-based harmony in turn, causes others to take notice and encourages them to similarly seek their inner peace and reason for being.

And the most effective approach to discovering your compassion is to focus on others, precisely their needs and their footprints in the world.   What is life, if not a living classroom, led by our Teacher, an environment where He teaches and we learn the important aspects and nuances of our being.  Let others’ challenges, victories and failures be that magnet that drives the “True North” of our moral compass.  And let it point the way for us in our journey; in your journey in this life.

“Compassion for People, Passion for Writing, Living my Conscience.”  Be well.
