Compassion -

I am currently reading The Wisdom of Compassion by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Victor Chan.

Again, I read about Matthieu Ricard, a bestselling author and longtime student of Tibetan Buddhism, and his results from an MRI brain scan.  He was in the brain scanner for over three hours and still came out smiling.   The results of the scan showed Ricard's "sunny" view of life.  "His outlier data showed that joy and fulfillment permeate his entire consciousness.  He entered into a state of euphoria when he meditated on compassion. Ricard explained. "It's a compassion that has no agenda, a compassion that excludes no one. You generate this sense of loving, and you let it soak the mind. You focus on the wish that all sentient beings be free from suffering."

I am with his words today, and I hope everyday.  It is my intention.


"It's a compassion that has no agenda, a compassion that excludes no one. You generate this sense of loving, and you let it soak the mind. You focus on the wish that all sentient beings be free from suffering."


May this be so.  May this "sense of loving" soak my mind.   May all sentient beings be free from suffering.  May I be free.
