True compassion is not just an emotional response but a firm commitment founded on reason. Therefore, a truly compassionate attitude towards others does not change even if they behave negatively. Through universal altruism, you develop a feeling of responsibility for others: the wish to help them actively overcome their problems.~ HH Dalai Lama ~
If we had true "universal altruism" we would need fewer rules and regulations. If we all practiced reasoned compassion, what a civilized world we would live in.
Happy Love Thursday!
