How Can I Be More Compassionate and Centered?

Unit: Exploring Spirituality
Category: Meeting with Jesus

Your life is like either a small bowl of still water or a wide, deep and fl owing river. The truth is, we cannot keep the “salt” from entering our lives—pain, crisis, difficulties, distasteful people and things happen—usually beyond our control. But we do have the ability to absorb the “salt” and make our lives livable by how wide and deep our hearts are. We can grow our hearts bigger to the point of being capable of embracing all of life. So the question is, what does it take to grow a bigger heart? What are the keys to centering ourselves more and more in compassion and peace? Are there tools we can use to help expand our hearts and minds and spirits?
