Compassion Is Tempting
Compassion for others isn't sustainable without compassion for your self.
It's a quest with no clear ending.
It's tempting to pick up something that promises to bypass all that, at the fraction of the effort and the cost.
It's almost as if the extreme of their suffering allows them to tap into the deepest depths of their being.
This making them more indomitably alive.
Do not spoil what you have, by desiring what you have not.
Remember, what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.
