The Art and Practice of Compassion in Action

Let’s start today making this world a kinder place for all creatures. Kindness and compassion are never wasted. Let’s see how much we can do to stop the horrors of hate and war. One smile at a time, one hugged child at a time, one hungry person fed, one animal rescued. One by one by one.

On February 20, more than one thousand bloggers are speaking with one voice about compassion — to share our belief that together we CAN rid the world of brutality, cruelty, hatred,, indifference, meanness, tyranny, animosity — the opposite of compassion. 

calendulacompassion“…sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others.”

You know what I think?

Being compassionate should not end there.

It’s not good enough to simply FEEL pity and concern, but we need to DO something about the suffering in this world.

  • Take ACTION to PREVENT brutality.
  • Take ACTION to STOP abuse and pain.
  • Take ACTION by educating our children.
  • TEACH kindness for all creatures.
  • Become better stewards of our planet.

That means NO puppy mills, no circuses with animals as entertainment, no SeaWorld, no elephant rides, no camel rides, no dolphin slaughter, no factory farm hell, no running of the bulls, no bullfighting, no cat and dog ritual…

    Thank you so much for the reblog! I’m really just so tired of people being mean to each other and to the world in general. Why can’t we be kinder and more gentle (and to ourselves, too?)

    You are absolutely right, what matters most is our contribution in assuaging pain and practice kindness in place of just mention about all good things. We’ve to care that these good things should not remain paper oriented.
