Compassion

It is a funny thing,
when life spins around on you
and you are suddenly in a place you once
judged.

Your words are turned against you for
a moment and you can feel the disgust
you once felt for a person who was right where
you are standing now.

But if you wait in this space for just a moment,
you will receive a true gift-
A heart opening glimpse of
deep compassion.

Do not miss this moment.

You must hold it.
Let go of not only the judgement
of this situation,
but the judgement towards
all situations.

See the pain, confusion, and suffering
of this world that we are spinning in.
Above it all
there is only love.
And if you open your heart,
in this moment,
you will see that even deep down in this muck
it is all only Love.
