17 Feb THIS WEEK: CURATE COMPASSION
We are curators of our lives. None of us start in the same place or get to the same place, but we all have the ability to choose. Again, some more than others, but there is a certain level of agency in each of us. Much like a curator in a museum who selects the art, organizes the exhibit, and holds great responsibility and accountability for all of it, we get to do the same. Why? Because we matter. Our actions, words, and thoughts all matter. And, from this place of self-empowerment, guided by the need for more love in our lives, we can also CURATE COMPASSION. There are people all over the world that need our love, concern, and support. This might be someone in our family or a friend. It might be a total stranger on the street in our community. Or it might be a group of people or culture halfway around the world. But let’s not let our paradigm for compassion be based on a sense of pity or sympathy. This isn’t a matter of less than or more than. This is purely a manner of understanding that we are all humans. We are all part of the same team. And when one of us hurts, we all do. True compassion understands that when we raise the water level, all boats rise. It’s a “we” thing. So let’s look outside of ourselves to bring more compassion to everyone and everything. Curating compassion matters.
