Compassion… Seeing Thru Different Eyes

I speak to you with words of wisdom, with love and with compassion. My love stems from the awesome ability to see beauty in ALL things, because I view the world differently than most. I come from a great family and while growing up, I was taught to love others by my Mother, grandmothers, Aunts and Uncles.

I have always had an abundant amount of love I wanted to share with the world ever since I was a little girl. Growing up with my 3 siblings, I had learned to share that love with them and with others.

My compassion is my most powerful gift of all.

It is my compassion for ALL things that has empowered my ability to love. I always thought that I could save the world, even if I had to do it one person or animal at a time. I have a natural nature with both humans and animals, and I feel so blessed to be able to share my gift with others.

Later in my life, my compassion and my Love become tested, as I got to experience being on the other side of the tracks, an outsider looking in.

The world from a homeless person’s eyes is quite different. We seem to forget that they, too,  had jobs, a home, marriage and family just like any other human being; something MANY of us take for granted. I met a lot of people who were very kind and humble that happened to be in the same boat I was, and some still are to this day.

When I thought negatively about my situation, it was the ” Select Few” that reminded me the true meaning of love and compassion as I watched these families love one another while hustling their butts off with nothing but their wits, as the struggle supplying food and shelter for their families, wreaking havoc on their daily lives.

No matter how much they were feeling despair, they STILL managed to love and smile.

The compassion from complete strangers coming to aid with food, clothing, and shoes vouchers and the like, had renewed my already existing faith that with God all things are possible. It was then that I learned my love and compassion had never left me in the first place.

What do you think?

  1. A wonderfully special life story, Liz. You are right, compassion is our greatest treasure. It is an infinite abundance everywhere, except us, the man himself who limits it for not being able to see it because it is covered by ego and greed. You are very wise. Let’s share our love everywhere.
