The compassion project.

"Just like me, this person is seeking some happiness in his/her life."

"Just like me, this person is trying to avoid suffering in his/her life."

"Just like me, this person has known sadness, loneliness and despair."

"Just like me, this person is is seeking to fulfill his/her needs."

"Just like me, this person is learning about life."
These steps were written by author Harry Palmer.

I won't preach, but I do hope. I hope that all of us will practice compassion and look at others as friends and companions; even the ones who hurt us. They don't mean to. And even if they do, practice compassion anyway.
It's such a beautiful gift.


  1. I really need this right now.. to practice compassion and focusing on that person (instead of me). glad you brought that up!


  2. I’ve been following and enjoying your blog for a while now and would like to invite you to visit and perhaps follow me back. Sorry I took so long for the invitation.

  3. Awwww...So true Nat :) I will definitely try all of these...
