Compassion# My Spiritual Wallet 1000 Voices Speak for Compassion
I stared at my laptop screen for long time, that blinking cursor, wearing puzzled smirk, wryly contemplating, “Hope it’s not your another long moment of soul-searching, Huh!”
I reflect on my views, translating them from the pandemonium of thoughts I was deliberating from the day I joined this wonderful platform #1000voices for Compassion. There is so much to begin with, there is so much to share and to care to escape mayhem of utter chaos and fast-paced life.
~Compassion For Me~
I came up with 2 analogies to put forward my views on the #Compassion.
The word Compassion for me is ingenuous mix of conformity with our own “Emotive Piggy-bank” and being passionate for our “Spiritual Wallet”.
I believe strongly in the instinctive feelings, emotional connection and telepathy. The spiritual connection is made with the person whom you are communicating or decide to communicate at that moment, the choice and the bond is formed, that bond is glued with compassion, it’s mutual, the giver and the taker has to respond in their own unique ways. Needless to emphasize Compassion is understandable with the gestures, wordless communications and just being their salient support.
It’s like your “Spiritual Wallet”. You are taking out (spending) “emotions” and the “change” you get back is self-rewarding and self-exhilarating. You will get multitude of happiness, peace and contentment in return.
Your spiritual aura would be healed and happy as you are helping someone in his or her healing and recovery process. Being able to volunteer for the society in any ways, community sharing and giving back is one of the best ways to learn being compassionate.
Fill this “wallet” with self-compassion, self-realization and self- esteem. The more you are valued in these 3 departments you will immensely be happy to spend from your happy and healthy “spiritual wallet”.
Share is care; so don’t stop yourself for being vulnerable or for helping someone going through tough times, as all you can do best is to be there for them in whatever ways you can.
By being there doesn’t imply physical presence is imperative for this “compassionate communication”. You can easily do this by harboring good thoughts, good vibes, and goodness in whatever ways your “Spiritual Wallet” permits you.
~Words have power to heal and to bleed~
Many times it happens we are thrown into such situations, when, we are lost and desolated. We reach out; we exhibit all strength and sense, to understand someone’s pains, miseries and sufferings.
We can’t change their circumstances but we can offer comfort, by being nice and displaying empathy for them in such trying times of their life.
“Willingness” to reach out and being “Kind” is the key towards being compassionate.
~Self-Compassion is the key to understand larger nuances of Compassion~
I remembered one connection I made 2 years back with one of the lady I met in the hospital restrooms. We both were hiding our concerns and fears for our kids; we both were waiting for our Kid’s turns outside the Pediatric Pathology. I was hopelessly panicked and when I saw her wiping her tears and splashing water on her face, something inside me changed than. I reached out, we sat together, talked about our kids, our family, we listened, we shared and we cared for each other sufferings and emotions without being judgmental or harboring presumptive thoughts.
We also exchanged our cell numbers afterwards. What I got from taking that first step and reaching out was long lasting friendship. In times of our life odds and upheavals, we both have found contentment and good listener in each other company. We become good friends afterwards and we both are still in touch with each other.
Self-Compassion is important for being compassionate for others woes, as it’s perfectly normal to have melt-downs, bad days, hopelessness and sadness creeping in our life system, when we accept our weaknesses and insecurities, we are elucidating healthy and happy mind.
~Whatever name you give to this angel, she will always personify love, compassion and goodness~
Oh! This angelic word has so many synonyms, tenderhearted, empathy, kindness, consideration, care and much more. Every word will give you a definitive circle of trust, love, appreciation and contentment.
Compassion has so many different names, terminology, and definitions but in Human dictionary of emotions, it’s understood without cultural barriers, without biases and without much ado for perfect words.
We understands when someone genuinely reach out and care about us in anyways, its not language which teaches us being compassionate, its our heart and soul which practice compassion.
We all have needs and desires, we all display emotions to varied degrees depending on the situational and non-situational factors. Like, we collect loose change in our piggy-bank, we save loose money, with hope it will be big enough to cash on one day. Same I think we need for our emotions also. These “little deeds” of kindness and compassionate acts made our life worthy and reflecting. Lucky one knows the value of this Emotive Piggy-bank.
Keep collecting dimes and cents in your Piggy-bank irrespective of how small your effort is in the beginning, it’s going to be big “change” someday.
~Mother Nature is our teacher~
There is definitely a “Symbiotic relationship” between Humanity/Compassion and Mother Nature.
With each unique seasons and upheavals, Mother Nature teach us something good- Change is inevitable, so is our life.
Animals, Waterfalls and Forests also speak to us in harmonious ways, they all understand value of compassion, and like human beings they have been practicing it from time immemorial. If we watch Mother Nature closely we will sure come across so many examples showing compassion. Compassion is not peculiar trait for only human beings, it’s a wordless gesture, a pronounced feelings or mute support.
Here’s my poetry dedication for all wonderful souls.
Inner “little” voice
Guiding force for all your woes
Support in the time of crisis
Reviving hopes with angelic beats
Enlightening lives of others
Exhibiting Compassionate streaks
Don’t be a miser in spending and sharing your
Spiritual wallet with everyone around
What you give will come back to you in multitude
with bonus addition of love from many thankful hearts
Humanity exists despite all evils and vices around
As we all persists to hum this beautiful
Compassion Symphony today when
