deepest root of compassion



Bearing the unbearable is the deepest root of compassion in the world. 
When you bear what you think you cannot bear,
 who you think you are dies. 
You become compassion. 
You don't have compassion - you are compassion. 
True compassion goes beyond empathy 
to being with the experience of another.
 You become an instrument of compassion.
~ Ram Dass
