Values of Ten: Value Two

Several dictionaries define Compassion as a feeling of deep sympathy and sorrow for another who is stricken by misfortune, accompanied by a strong desire to alleviate the suffering. Contrary  to this definition, Compassion to me is Empathy, the spiritual, mental and physical capacity to first understand at our very core regardless. When we are compassionate we are in alignment with our Soul (Love); when we Love, we illuminate the world and beyond… Like fireflies, we light up the world even in our darkest moment(s).
