A Week for Compassion

Last week I started a seven-week journey through the daily themes of the Attention and Interpretation Therapy program I am doing this winter/spring. The first week was dedicated to a few posts about gratitude, the daily theme for Mondays. This week I am taking the second theme, compassion.

As last week, simply a quote to set the tone for the week. This one from the spiritually profound Thomas Merton:

The whole idea of


is based on a keen awareness of the interdependence of all these living beings,
which are all part of one another,
and all involved in one another.

Look around for the interdependence of all things around you today-
and your interdependence on them.
