Compassion is keen awareness of our interdependence

The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the interdependence of all these living beings, which are all part of one another, and all involved in one another. — Thomas Merton

That would include those people we don’t like or agree with! That is my practice today.

Books by Merton:

●  The Seven Storey Mountain

●  No Man Is an Island

●  New Seeds of Contemplation
