For Those Working Hard to Help Others

Yesterday we worked to sooth the ego, hard work! So today let’s make it easy, we’ll direct our compassion to those working hard to help others. Line six well help us recognize that champions of compassion, protection and justice are imperfect, but that’s great because whenever people mess up we get to smile and exercise our patience:

I practice compassion for those working hard to help others

With compassion, I free them from suffering
With compassion, I help them find peace and feel safe in this world
With compassion, I create contentment in their lives
With compassion, I inspire them to flourish

With patience and good humour, I welcome the imperfections of those who are working hard to help others
With sympathy, I feel for their suffering
With empathy, I mind what they’re feeling and try to understand why

For those working hard to help others, I seek wisdom
I nurture a broad perspective of them
I foster gratefulness for them
And I acknowledge that suffering and difficulties are part of their lives

What fun, thanks for practicing with me😄
