Compassion is non duality
seeing beyond right and wrong
merely listening and letting in
the story of that shitty thing they did
nothing to protect yourself from
you are safe... to merely listen and understand.
(what do I need to think in order to feel safe with you meanie person?)
If I don't understand how a person could hurt me
could hurt another
It's because I haven't finished my curiosity yet.
There is something about what that person has done
that terrifies me...on a deep fundamental survival level
and that's why I haven't yet been able to merely listen
Listen and let them be different from me
without protecting myself from that difference
that's compassion...letting the story be a circle that always comes back to me.
