The Awakened Heart

Compassion is the highest and most essential expression of spirituality. If you see yourself as existing in some form of spiritual context, however you may define this for yourself, and there is no form of compassionate expression in your life, the seed simply has not sprouted yet and the lofty state you may believe yourself to  be occupying is just your dream. 

Compassionate behavior, at the same time is truly just a by-product of an awakened heart. Therefore, compassionate behavior cannot and should not be forced. However, it is possible to open a dialogue with a heart and say: "I invite you. Why not open?"

And even if nothing is said, if a contracted heart comes close to an awakened heart, the very meeting constitutes an existential invitation of silent, yet potentially powerful impact.
