THE COMPASSION PROJECT
“If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future, If you are at peace, you are living in present” – Lao Tzu The Founder of Tao
Anything you do not give freely and abundantly becomes lost to you. You open your safe and find ashes” - Annie Dillard, Author and seeker
“In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich” - Dietrich Bonhoeffer, author of The Cost of Discipleship
“... if you connect with the blessings of your surroundings - the stillness, the magic, and the power - maybe that feeling can stay with you and you can go into your day with it. Whatever it is you are doing, the magic, the sacredness, the expansiveness, and the stillness stay with you. When you are in touch with the larger environment, it can cut through your cocoon mentality” - Pema Chödrön
IN SPITE OF!
“We are led by the least among us. The least intelligent, the least noble, the least visionary” – Terence McKenna, American ethnobotanist
“I am convinced that most people do not grow up... I think what we do is mostly grow old” - Maya Angelou
AND UNDERSTANDING CONTEXT
“Not only do we transform as eternity unfolds in us, but also eternity may transform, as it returns to itself in a richer way, through our participation.…" - David Bohm, pioneering quantum physicist
"I err, therefore I am" - Saint Augustine
“Compassion is the keen awareness of the interdependence of all things” - Thomas Merton
"All human encounter is an opportunity to participate in healing the collective damage of how difference has been managed in our human history and the damage that it continues to do" - Shelley Harrell, PhD
"Without dreams, without risks, only a trivial semblance of living can be achieved”
— Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, psychologist
"As the unseen wind moves from the azalea to the young willow, the unseen force of Spirit moves from you to me... Still, the azalea doesn’t become the willow, even though they root in the same soil. In just this way, you stay you and I stay me, though we are informed by each other, just by virtue of how Spirit moves through all things" - Mark Nepo
