Compassionate hearts have qualities of joy and gratitude, because compassion means going directly to those people and places where suffering is most acute. This is because the compassionate life is a life in community.
It is true that everyone has unique gifts and is special, but we are not as different as we may seem to be. What separates us is less important than what unites us. A compassionate life could be described as a life patiently lived with others through hard times: staying with it; living through; listening carefully.
This is one of our new self-help resources available to our Ambassador community. Here we will feature the thoughts, questions, and insight of the our fellow Ambassadors. You can even leave comments of encouragement or feedback to fellow Ambassadors that may be having a tough time.
