compassion-sA mystic of the fourteenth century, Meister Eckhart wrote, “Whatever God does, the first outburst is always compassion.” Sometimes we don’t know how to help people. They lose a job, experience violence or disaster, cope with failure or loss; and we don’t know how to respond. Like God, our first response can be compassion.

    Simply listening can be the most compassionate response. No advice. No hints. No comments. Just listen. That’s first response compassion!!
