I do not ask the wounded person how he feels….I myself

become the wounded person,

My hurt turns livid upon me as I lean on a cane and observe.

– Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

 

The Dalai Lama, when he hears of something terrible happening, like a child being abuse by a parent, he weeps with the child because he feels the child’s pain. This is because the Dalai Lama has no ego. He is humbled and he does not feel apart from the child, or in a better position than the child. It is the meek who will inherit the earth according to Jesus’ sermon on the mount. Not the strong, the powerful, the comfortable. Maybe, instead of impacting the world through power – the quickest way; we should strive to impact the world through meekness – the most long-term and long-lasting way. Empathize. Humble yourself.

 

Signing off,

Grace and Love.
