Charter for Compassion

As caring beings having a human experience, we all are born with the capacity for compassion. Someone once said the difference between sympathy and compassion is that the one who sympathizes, can see and feel what another is experiencing, but does nothing. The one who has compassion, sees, feels and then acts on what is seen.

In 2008 a charter was developed with input from over 150,000 people from over 180 countries.  It was called the "Charter for Compassion."  An amazing experience produced this world-changing document.  Watch the embedded video below to hear people breathing life into the words from the charter.  We change the world by changing ourselves and you can act by making a commitment with others to live the charter. Visit the website here, Charter for Compassion, and sign on.   If this speaks to your spirit, tell someone else about this movement.

May you practice compassion daily and may this tool be a blessing...
