Compassion is certainly not for the weak

Gandhi, when he was instructing compassion workers at the Dandi March -- where people stood in lines to get pulverized by the British army -- said this: don't just get hit; look at the man hitting you, look him in the eye with love, and preach a silent sermon. Preach that the love in me is far stronger than the negativity with which you strike. Oppose not the man, for he is divine, but oppose his actions, for they are confused when it harms another being. And know that love will always prevail over hatred, that wherever there is injustice, there will always be forces working for justice, wherever there is weakness, strength will be always be found. And all this from a guy who boldly said -- my life is my message.

"The easiest thing to do in the universe is to love
everyone. That is, once we learn what love is, it's the
easiest thing to do. It takes tremendous effort not to
love everyone, and you see the effort being expended in
everyday life. But when we love, we're at one with all.
We're at peace and everything falls into line perfectly.""
- Lester Levenson

     My greatest wealth is the deep stillness 

in which I strive and grow
and win what the world cannot take
from me with fire or sword.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
