Excerpt About Compassion
Connection Between Compassion, Truth and SufferingSo there is a reciprocal relationship between truth and compassion, and there is a connection between these things and suffering. But the suffering is not the point; suffering is something in between that we go through. From the perspective of Essence, it is irrelevant. The important part is truth, the truth about who we are, no matter how much hurt, suffering, and fear it takes to get there. Sometimes the pain is there so that the person will learn the truth.
