Day 14: Gratitude brings Compassion

Today's meditation, shows us how expressing gratitude easily leads to empathy. We all know that to be spiritual we are supposed to be compassionate, but with all the negativity and injustice we see around us, it's easy for our ego to feel justified in judgment and criticism.

However, when you find reasons to be grateful for someone, you are bridging the gap between the two of you. You can't be thankful and fun at the same time. That connection you feel when you're grateful is your common humanity, it's the foundation of empathy. A kind heart is an acceptance and forgiveness not only for others but for yourself as well.

Our centering thought for today is:

When I have no judgement, I see everyone with Kindness.

"We are all of one light on this one Earth, and loving humanity makes all the difference"

~ Michelle Cruz-Rosado

Journal Questions

  1. Write the names of anyone with whom you don't always see eye to eye, but would sincerely wish to be kind to.

  2. For each person, describe at least one admirable quality you appreciate in them. Let that feeling of appreciation suggest a gesture of kindness you can make to them.

  3. For each of these people, write something you share in common and how that can be a bridge of compassion. Eg; perhaps you both have an elderly mother you worry about, or share a passion for a particular cause.
