Compassion a Lost Facet?

Compassion, once an intense fire burning within us is becoming harder and harder to find. Strangers helping and reaching out to one another was once a common occurrence. Now it seems on the verge of extinction. If we could all take the time to look at each other and recognize the energy within. It might not be too late to resurrect the powerful and positive energy flowing through each of us. People need one another. We are all linked in one way or another like drops of water in the ocean we all affect one another. Somehow we have become selfish and ignorant to that reality.

Look in the mirror, look very closely and that flame of compassion is still there. Perform a good deed... a smile, a joke, opening a door for someone, helping with packages, letting someone in front of you in traffic. No matter how insignificant it may feel it is not. For if we all keep that flame burning and the positive energy flowing the world can be a beautiful place.
