Compassion Part 2 of 2

“Compassion is like this, it moves us across the boundaries of established norms and often past the boundaries of safety, rushing headlong to do what it can to ease another’s suffering. Compassion forgets itself and the standards of protocol to answer the cries of another.”

“Compassion is a powerful inner response leading to an immediate outward action that takes risk on behalf of another.”

-The Yamas and Niyamas by Deborah Adele
