“All faiths insist that compassion is the test of true spirituality and that it brings us into relation with the transcendence we call God, Brahman, Nirvana, or Dao. Each has formulated its own version of what is sometimes call the Golden Rule, ‘Do not treat others as you would not like them to treat you,’ or in its positive form, ‘Always treat others as you would wish to be treated yourself.’ Further, they all insist that you cannot confine your benevolence to your own group; you must have concern for everybody – even your enemies.” —Karen Armstrong
With social media (Facebook, Twitter and others), we have a wonderful opportunity to reach out and connect with people all over the world in the comfort of home. Are we connecting compassionately? Are we choosing words and images that reflect our true values? Join me each first Friday of the month during the coming year as we gather to reflect on the twelve steps from Karen Armstrong’s book “Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life”. Purchase of the book is required. A limited number of copies will be available for purchase at the Cove. Let’s gather for lunch and compassion. As the Dalai Lama said, “If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.”
THIS QUARTER, we will practice the following topics: JULY “How Little We Know”
AUGUST “How We Should Speak To One Another”
SEPTEMBER “Concern For Everybody”
