    Default Compassion

    What matters is that you

    understand that others suffer, some worse than you could ever do. The nature of compassion isn't coming to terms

    with your own suffering and applying it to others: it's knowing that other folks around you suffer and, no matter

    what happens to you, no matter how lucky or unlucky you are, they keep suffering. And if you can do something about

    that, you do it, and you do it without whining or waving your own cross for the world to see. You do it because

    it's the right thing to do.

    To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.
