The Conditions of Compassion

Scilla Elworthy, 74 - England

The conditions in compassion arises is when the heart is open. You can’t feel compassion if your heart is closed. And your heart might be closed because you’re overworked, you’re stressed, you’re angry, you’re jealous, you’re fearful, all those things close the heart. I know that, I’ve been there. And it took me years to realise that I had to resolve my own inner emotions and anguish before I could really be of service. And you can only open your heart when your heart is full.
